My DH will leave things in his pants pockets when he puts them in the dirty laundry. He thinks I should check LL the pants pockets (and shirt ones too) in our house when doing laundry. I have a ton of laundry and am usually in a hurry when putting it in the wash. I have 4 kids (13, 5, 3, & 1 yr). I personally think you should empty your own pockets before putting your clothes in the dirty hamper. A receipt for work got washed in his pants yesterday and he was mad this morning about it. he said "Because YOU never check pockets before washing clothes!" A few minutes later he said it was his fault. I don't know if that was just to keep the peace or what. So who do you think the responsibility falls on??Answer Question
I tell every one that they HAVE to clean out their pockets before the hit the dirty hamper. I also tell them that what ever I find is MINE to keep. They do pretty good about cleaning their pockets, but I have gotten in the habit of checking EVERY pocket as I add the piece into the washer. If you get in the habit of it, it really only takes a couple extra seconds and it won't seem so hard to check pockets, it will just become second nature.

Here's one way to get him to empty his pockets and those of your kids as they get older. Anything find I ( especially money) is mine. Most things I will give back after much negotiation.
