    Haven't read all the replies - Mine is that the stains are not set aside. I'm better now. I put them on the floor (they're already stained, right?) w/ the stained side facing up and give them the pre-treat before I put them in the laundry.

    The other is not zipping up or closing the button pants. ERGH! Annoys me to no end. And yes, that would be me.

    The other! Is the FREAKIN' ball point pen left in a pocket or clipped to a shirt lapel! It RUINS the entire load and ( I ) only find out after the dryer cycle.

    Um, yes, that would be me again. . . I've actually forgotten about all the crayons, gum, wax, chocolate, frogs, rocks, toys, etc. that my son used to leave in his clothes.

    I'm not even going to mention the poopy cloth diapers, spit clothes, etc. Um, no - that's not me.

    This is exactly what I was going to put. When ds was a teen I'd put the clean clothes on the bed and then they end up on the floor and his room was right across from the laundry room. Guess where the clean clothes went next... . . . . . . . . . into the laundry room to be washed again without being worn.

    Oh and JerryG,

    Dh's cousin had four kids and refused to check pockets. Her dh always left gum in the pockets and his dress shirts would come out of the wash with glued together pockets she would just laugh

    Living in an apartment and using the washer/dryer there. Then having someone hover over your dryer and take your clothes out, tossing them on the laundry table or on top of the dryer so that they can put their clothes in the very second the dryer stops. Even if your clothes are still wet, which they most likely are because the dryers are very very old.

    What is tossing their shirts with one sleeve right side out and the other inside out into the laundry?

    next...
    Update:
    Since I spoke to the offending party(he that shall not be named) there has been slight improvement. One sleeve was completely right side out and the other was 2/3 of the way to right side out. That was on both shirts that were in the laundry. Al-mo-st there.
    Back to your regularly scheduled program...

    Leaving little toys in pockets, taking laundry out of the dryer and creating Mt. Clean Laundry on the folding table, leaving laundry on the floor less than 6" from the hamper, and not putting away laundry that I've folded so that it ends up on the floor and then back in the laundry!

    Or putting clothes that no longer fit (that I'm not aware of) back in the laundry.

    Washing a load thats too small to consider washing - as in huge basket of laundry to do but once you sort it out by categories, they all must be washed sep. Um hello - jeans & colours or jeans & darks can go into one load to make up a FULL(er) one load kwim?! Stop wasting time/money. And yes...that would be my future other half (and I don't care that his washer/dryer are HE)

    The wife seems to think that the pants pockets always empty themselves. It is never money left in the pockets and is ALWAYS chapstick. My drycleaning bill afterwards is always the cost of a new shirt. UGH.

    I don't unroll or clean out pockets. If it needs unrolled, it gets put in your chair (laundry is in the kitchen) and doesn't get washed. Oh, you wanted it to wear, too bad...

    The only time I will clean out pockets is when I am taking pants from the "already worn, but still wearable again" shelf. DH will get quite a collection and I will clean them off and wash them all sometimes.

    Things left in pockets! I never put things in my pockets....I carry a purse constantly....no need to put things in my pockets. My kids put candy wrappers, gum(unchewed in the wrapper) and other weird garbage in their pockets....then I always find it....in the dryer! Oh and if I find money, it's mine! It's my pay for doing your laundry!
