do you wash your own clothes?

i notice that if other people wash your clothes, it doesnt get clean. there are still marks and stains left on the shirt and pants. i hate it when they accidentally pour a bleaching solvent on it and gone is my favorite shirt. and so i decided to wash my delicate shirts. what's your experience?

Generally all my clothes are washed by my wife but sometimes when she goes on errands i have to wash by myself, I do not want to wait for her back to wash the dirty clothes.

I have always been washing my own clothes ever since my wife and I split several years back. I am pretty confident in my clothes washing skills so I am not worried about something comming out of the dryer with stains still on them.

My mom does the laundry at my house. I would much rather do it myself but she doesnt like the fact im trying to help. I like to get my nice expensive jeans dry-cleaned so they don't get faded and also my Polos so they dont shrink. My workout cloths i could careless about. Laundry at home they go along with my basketball shorts.

Yes I do. I am a stay at home mom and find my joy in completing all the household activities. When it comes to washing clothes I use my washing machine for most of the clothes but the ones that require special care would always be washed by hands. I don't think its bad job though. Washing clothes of all my family members that is me, my husband and my 3 month old kid. And I must say at this moment of time its my ki9d that has the most number of clothes to wash and I really don't care if I am getting enough of my clothes washed at all. And when I am washing my own clothes it gives me the satisfaction that the clothes are washed properly and there is nothing to worry about them anymore. I can use the detergent, fabric softener and bleach according to my choice and will not risk losing color or spoiling any of the clothes that need special attention.
