Reader Poll: How do you sort your laundry?

As usual, I got into a weird discussion with a friend about the “correct” way to sort laundry for washing. Here’s mine:

  1. Whites
  2. Shirts
  3. Towels and sheets
  4. Other (jeans, underwear, socks, etc)

What are yours? Let’s see some comments!

    I sort the laundry loads by colors – I don’t have ANYTHING that fits into the “delicate” category: Blue, Black, Gray, Red/Perple, Earth Tones, Green, White (split between undershirts, socks, other). Green and red often end up in with something else because there’s not enough for a full load. Linens & towels get their own loads. Everything’s washed in Cold/Cold with non-chlorine bleach except for undershirts which are washed Hot/Cold and use Chlorine bleach.

    If I told you I washed my kitchen towels with my underwear would you still want to eat at my house?

    I would have to agree with Dave…I sort more by color than anything else…Of course Jen has her own pile of “delicates” that I don’t dare touch.

    And I hate doing it…..

    Most of my clothe do end up shrinking…. I think the excessive drying causes that.
