My husband always tells me that laundry does itself so I should be able to maintain more than just a few things daily. SOMEONE has to put the laundry in the washer...someone has to turn it on, fill it with detergents and what nots. Someone also has to pull them out of the washer and into the dryer...turn dryer on and so forth, but I guess he just doesn't get that.
We have a total of 6 people in this house. We have mounds of laundry (in process of parting with all the tattered and unfitting clothes. Got me thinking about the hardest part of doing laundry. Is it the having to wash it....or having to get up to transfer the items to the dryer? Maybe it's the folding from when the laundry is done? Or the task of just simply separating clothes and having it put away?
For me...as much as laundry (or loading the dishwasher) seems to be easy enough...the challenge for me is always putting it away. Folding is a nightmare, but the simple task of clearing the space to make room for the fresh load coming after the one that needs to get put away. Granted, I'm a procrastinator, but with my kids being lazy about putting their clothes away...I need to change my habits so they can change theirs.
What would you consider the hardest part about doing laundry?

You should let him do the laundry once! It's a big task if you ask me, and for all the same reasons you just mentioned in your post. It's time consuming wating on loads to switch,it can take hours to finish all the laundry. In fact, one whole day of mine is devoted to just laundry. The worst part for me is putting away. All the sorting and socks etc. I did atleast get my family to use their hampers and to also turn their socks right side out for me....I told them I refuse to stand and turn dirty smelly socks right side out before washing and if they didn't...I will throw them away or they will stay in the hamper FOREVER. So, that did help with the socks part. I went through every piece of clothing in this house a year ago & gave tons to donate. It helped SO MUCH around here. Basically, just what you're doing OP.
