    Um cool bunny cake!

    I do my own laundry and Kyles when he is here.

    I don't separate my whites from my darks unless Im washing my white jeans, then I will.

    I use dryer sheets not fabric softener.

    Usually gain detergent

    I wash my sheets about once every other week.

    I only use my towels once and then they will get washed.

    I don't know if that thing works but I want to try it, but if it dose not work then I will be upset if I ruin my clothes.

    Who does laundry in your household? generally I do (on sundays!) but sometimes my husband will if he decides to.
    Do you separate whites and darks? yes, and I normally have to break up the darks into 2 loads because my husband wears a lot of dark clothes
    How often do you wash your sheets? not often, I hate washing sheets. I have a bad habit of throwing them in the hamper and then piling dirty clothes ontop and only taking out the dirty clothes when we do laundry so they sit in the hamper for a month or two before I buck up and do it. I do change my actual sheets more often though.
    How often do you wash your towels? whenever they get dirty
    What laundry detergent do you use? to be honest, I have no idea what is downstairs,I didnt buy it I just use it.
    Do you use fabric softener or dryer sheets? nope!
    Have you ever used the new color fast sheet thing I see on tv and does it work? nope! all of the clothes we wash often are cheapies (old navy tanks and tshirts, etc) so I dont mind if they fade because I replace them on a regular basis.

    Man, I was hoping someone tried the color thing. Basically a dryer sheet that you put in the wash that "attracts" color dye so you can wash whites and darks together. We have a crap ton of whites thanks to S and his white shirt fetish, but very few darks.

    Who does laundry in your household? I did, until I broke my foot in February and our laundry room is down some loooong scary stairs, so H has been in charge since then.

    Do you separate whites and darks? YES, and colors, and I'm anal about it, which H is not. Now, he does it just so I don't flip out. His black greasy kitchen clothes are not going in with anything of mine.

    How often do you wash your sheets? once every two weeks.

    How often do you wash your towels? after 2 uses, maybe?

    What laundry detergent do you use? Arm and hammer liquid

    Do you use fabric softener or dryer sheets? nope.

    Have you ever used the new color fast sheet thing I see on tv and does it work? Don't even know what this is.

    Is it wrong that I did all of H's laundry even when we were dating? He would stay with me on the weekends, and I'd wash his clothes for him. I don't think he even helped me back then.

    Who does laundry in your household? Mainly me/

    Do you separate whites and darks? For the most part, that and reds because we have a lot of red stuff.

    How often do you wash your sheets? Weekly

    How often do you wash your towels? Weekly

    What laundry detergent do you use? Whatever is on sale or we have a coupon for at the moment. I like All or Tide, but FI insists that soap is soap :)

    Do you use fabric softener or dryer sheets? Softener. Both, our apartment complex has pretty craptastic water.

    Have you ever used the new color fast sheet thing I see on tv and does it work? I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but I have used the Shout color catchers and love them for when I wash things on hot or mix colors. I had one of the tiny stackable dryers in college and the dryer balls did cut down my drying time, and they help our big quilt to not get tangled.
