Cleaning & Organizing Cleaning & Organizing

Okay so my MIL told me she washes ALL her clothes in cold. I said "what about personal items like underwear, towels, bras and such?"  She said "the detergent sanatizes them." I'm sorry but personal items go in hot water for me. Also I only wash clothes in hot or cold no warm. Me and my DH wear a lot of black and jeans so most of our clothes go in the cold. But what do you ladies do? Do you use all the temp washes or just one, maybe two? I still can't get over the fact that my MIL washes all her clothes in cold. I want my undies sanitized in hot water!

I've been washing all my clothes in cold since I stopped washing diapers.

The purpose of detergent is to wash things (dirt, body oils, skin cells, bacteria) off clothing.

The hot water to the washer has been shut off for about 18 years, now...

 I only use cold. They soak in the soap and then get thrown in the hot dryer.

All cold wash. Every once in awhile I use hot for towels and sheets especially if someone has been sick.
