Mine is the way things smell. If stuff does not smell just right I have to make it smell that way. Even if it means rewashing something more than once.

The month of May is the Nerofibromatosis awarness month. 

One of the major signs are cafe au lait spots (flat brown spots on the skin).

Please research this disorder! 

I have this disorder myself.

 I constantly wash my hands.  I'm not a germaphobe, I just can't stand it when my hands feel dirty.

that's mine too!  I hate bad smells, so if the laundry doesn't smell right I always re-wash it!

Labeling food containers in my kitchen. And everything in my house has a proper place for it. The way my refrigerator is organized. Certain foods have to go in certain places. If he moves something I have to rearrange it. I have to have all the same kind of clothes hangers in my closet. I probalby have alot more, and I'm unaware of alot of it until someone else points it out.

Germs. I'm not completely like Howard Hughes about it, but if it's something lots of random people touch every day, like a door to a very busy public place, or a shopping Cart handle, I don't want to touch it or especially have my kids touch it unless I sanitize it first with an antibacterial wipe. I wasn't like that before I had kids, but my oldest had RSV as a newborn and as a result developed asthma, so any time he gets sick it's a big deal because he can't breathe.
