    What about a house husband then?!

    I put dark colors that I know will bleed together, and the rest goes in it's own pile. I wash warm on everything b/c the dirt and detergent simply do NOT come out of the clothes otherwise.

    ^ Well, even if you don't have a kickass boyfriend to do your laundry for you, it's the easiest skill to have. Follow directions and you can't mess up.

    I normally wear my jeans 2 days in a row (used to be 3, but I finally got 2 new pairs), then discard them for a new pair unless I did a LOT of sweating and working in them that day.

    So is the only reason for separating color-clothes from white clothes to avoid colors from "bleeding?" Because it would be a lot more convenient to not have to split up every washload.

    I thought this was the case, until somebody told me that hot water is necessary to clean certain types of clothes well, meaning lumping everything into a cold wash, colors and whites, isn't as clean. I think that's what they were saying...

    Put dirty clothes in the washer.
    Put laundry detergent in.
    Close washer door.
    Turn knob to # of minutes, and run it.


    After wash is done:

    Open washer door.
    Remove clothes from washer, and insert into dryer.
    Put in fabric softener, if desired.
    Close dryer door.
    Turn knob to # of minutes, and run it.

    I find that cold water just doesn't do the trick, not without some heavy duty detergent. I use baby detergent (I'm allergic to most anything else except All Free and Clear). Cold water would probably be just fine for jeans though. I use hot water on the socks and towels.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I just did some laundry, TheChosenOne put it pretty well.

    Your laundry detergent container SHOULD tell you how much to pour in the cap to measure. Just put the clothes in, put it on warm cold, and put it in for a decent amount of time. It's pretty easy.

    The underwear gnomes do it for me, whilst my collection of British-immigrant Brownies keep house in other ways.
