Just the fact that it NEVER stops! There's never a day that there isn't a load waiting on me, even AFTER laundry day! I'm also not a big fan of the wrinkles. Our dryer is really small, so everything always comes out wrinkled. Then I have to hear from my husband how wrinkled they are for the rest of the week!

Thats too funny I hate socks too! I usually leave them in the bottom of the basket and then we all scrounge to find the matches when we need a pair! Unless my husband is willing to sit and match them (which he sometimes does) they sit there and we hunt for our socks!

I wish I could do that, lol, I just dont think a 4 yr old & 6 mo old could find their socks though, atleast the 4 yr olds wouldnt match lol. I do havea few on top of the dryer like that though, like ones that get seperated during the washing & drying lol

I don't mind doing laundry. I enjoy having everything clean and put away. What I hate is that my laundry room is FREEZING and that it's cluttered with stuff that we don't have any room for anywhere else. I'm working on decluttering though. And when I have the money for storage cabinets, I'm doing that. I could be so much more productive in a neat environment.

I hate the long trek that I have to make everytime I want to do it. I currently live on the top floor of a dorm, so everytime I want to do laundry, I have to walk down 4 flights of stairs to put my clothes in the washer. I have to walk back up those 4 flights, for about 25 minutes, back downstairs and wait an hour and do it again. I'm tired out after all those trips!

The worse part of laundry is folding it and putting it away. It really takes a lot of time.

You know what, there's a couple things I dislike about washing clothes & doing laundry in general. For the most part I don't have a problem with doing laundry and when I do go and clean clothes they do usually get washed well. These few things that irritate me about washing clothes are as follows: lost socks, the load of laundry we have to do, emptying the lint trap & dryers in laundromats. I really don't like socks in general, but I find they almost always go in fine. During the drying cycle is where I get annoyed when it comes to socks. This is because usually an even amount of socks will go into the dryer and then an odd number will come out when I empty it. I get really pissed off when I put all the socks in the dryer and then when I pull them out I'm usually folding all the socks together. I'll get one or two that don't have a match and I'll have to fold those ones together. Sometimes the thing that really makes our laundry annoying is the amount we end up with to wash. There's been times where we had to do two washes because there was so much stuff and even then some things didn't get clean. We've been able to fix that since by cutting down the amount of time in between washes. We now have significantly less clothes every time we wash. That makes it easier to have them completely done as opposed to bringing them home a little damp. Usually that ends up with us having to use the dryer here to finish the clothes off. I absolutely hate emptying the lint trap. Every time I take the thing out it leaves dust all over the top of the dryer. It's really hard to control that and I wish there was an easier way to control the dust that flows out of that lint trap. The last thing that bothers me about doing laundry is this one laundromat I go to. Their dryers always leave your clothes smelling really weird. It's like you could put eight dryer sheets with the nicest smell in the world and the clothes would still come out smelling awful. I think those people who run the place need to replace the dryers or get them repaired. Thanks for allowing me to share. xx
