Do you do Your SO/DH's laundry? *EDIT* on how it is in our home

If so....

I pretty sure most of you check the pockets before you put the clothes in the washer. 

If you find money in your SO/DH's pockets. What do you do with it ?



*EDIT* :

I will admit I am a bit OCD with how the Wash is done. I am very particular with how the laundry detergent,( stain booster, when needed) and fabric softener are added. 

DH does try to help when he is able enough. That is easy enough ..put the clothes in the dryer with 2 fabric softener sheets and Viola !. 

When the drying is done...he does try to help me fold when he can ( he is disabled from a bad work accident) 

I , myself always check the pockets of his, mine ,  and the boys clothes. I never know what I might find in there...hehehe. I'd rather take the time to check the pockets than ruin everyone Else's clothes or even my machines .

I rarely ever find money in my DH's pockets. If I do..it mostly just change. Which usually just gets put into a container on the dryer. 

 For those of you that don't check pockets.Do you ever wonder or get concerned about the other clothes getting ruined... or your machines getting messed up from the in particulars that might be left in those pockets ?

Oh and on another note.... what laundry detergent do you use. Do you use a stain fighter or OxiClean. What about Fabric softener. Liquid, dryer sheets , or both ?

I use Gain liquid or powder. Gain liquid fabric softener and Gain sheets too. I will also use Oxiclean spray stain remover and the powder when needed. 

I used to only use Tide , but they changed there formula and it makes my boys skins break now.

He never does because I also change over his stuff to new pants every morning while he is in the shower!

We find money in pockets we stick it in the rainy day fund. If it is in his pockets then it would be change.

Its mostly change so I usually keep it. If it's a big amount, I'll give it back to him.

It depends on how much it is. Truthfully after 12 years of reminding him to check his own pockets he rarely leaves anything in them. :)
