Men: Do you KNOW how to do laundry properly?

  1. I truly do know how.

  2. I THINK I know how.

  3. I'm not sure, no one will allow me to try.

  4. No, and I don't want to know how, that's a womans' task.

    Humm..I couldn't decide how to vote.I didn't see a choice for "refuses to do it correctly out of fear of having to do it more often".;)

    I get my other half to do it.I'd say that's knowing how! :p

    What about the men who have been doing their laundry for years by themselves. There isnt a catagory for "Absolutley, been doing it for years!" It should be followed up with - (and thats why my clothes are stained and wrinkled all of the time!) :lol:

    Cheryl, you'd be proud of me. I do most of my own and the towels too.
    The wife works crazy hours and most of the time I find I need cloths when she ain't hime to do'em.

    Cheryl I thought about this long and hard to give a correct response.:confused2: I decided and voted that I think I know the right way.:roll_eyes: However, in view of the cronic water shortage here in the midwest I elect to do them in ways that conserves energy and resources.:big_smile: Do laundry as seldom as I can get away with to conserve water and electricity(generated by Hydro-electric). Further it also reduces the expense of those costly detergents and thereby reducing polution.:smile2: What I am tryin to convey is........I throw EVERYTHING in one load so I can get it done fast so that it doesn't interfere with fishin!:tounge_out:

    Cheryl,

    What??? Are you shopping for a wife here?

    I can do laundry, iron, sew - with or without a sewing machine, fold'em, hang'em and put'em away. I'm also one heck of a cook!!!

    The only thing I can't quite get the hang of is laying on the couch, popping bon bons in my face and watching the Lifetime channel. :oops:

    Things seem to change colors, so I'm not allowed to touch the stuff.

    My wife gave me the ultimate compliment the other day, or so i at first believed. we had been to my camp for a couple days fishing and had just got home. she was busy putting up groceries and the like and i decided to get a load of my clothes on to wash, when all of a sudden she asks me to throw her jeans in with mine. i was shocked to say the least. she never lets me wash her clothes. i figured all the years of her coaching me had finally paid off. she was finally gona trust me to wash her clothes. so i did everything as i had been schooled. the right amount of powder, warm water, no colors, etc. when i got through washing and drying them, i put them on a hanger and told her they were ready to be put in her closet(something else i ain't allowed to do). she jerked them off the hanger and tossed them to me and said, "Just throw um' out in the shed with the campin' stuff, they ain't fit to wear anywhere else." So much for the ultimate compliment.:roll_eyes:

    I'm with cyclops. Navy taught me well. Also wife works 7 pm to 7 am so I get lots of practice washing, cooking, vacuuming and dusting. Not to mention mowing, gardening, washing the car/truck and even bathing the dog.

    Nope, I don't know nothing about doing laundry. I can fix the washer or drier if they quit but that's all. My wife never worked outside our home and she has always taken care of the laundry. I'm spoiled!

    I do all the laundry in our house, I also do all the housework, and yard work..I am a clean freak and my wife is not..I must mop all floors everyday, vaccum everyday, and dust everyday...Plus the minute a dish of glass is dirtied, it is washed and put in it's proper place...No lie!

    Jack, I sure hope my wife don't read your post, cause she might just get the idea that men can clean and expect me to join in.
