    So, i have been trying to help my wife around the house. She is still on lifting restrictions and asked me to do her laundry while I was doing mine.

    I have a full hamper, a mix of jeans, work pants, sweaty tee shirts, socks, etc.

    She has half a hamper of her stuff.

    Mine weights about 18 pounds. Hers weights about six pounds.


    Mine all gets stuffed into one load, max settings, warm water. Done.

    Hers . . . . three separate loads, different settings, different soap. Each load takes 20 minutes to wash, 45 minutes to dry.

    Is this normal? I now understand why women hate doing laundry.

    Any of you guys do more than one load?

    All in one for me also, occasionally I will do whites only and add a splash of bleach. We just do things the "wrong" way:) not my words but I bet you've heard them.

    I once took a 10 or 12 day motorcycle trip on a Norton Manx that didn't have room to carry anything. I wore the same underpants for about four days, threw them out and bought another pair. Wore them for four days, threw them out and stopped wearing underpants after that. That's a guy's thing.
