I don't sort my colors. I do sort my towels from the clothes though. I just throw all the clothes in one wash. We buy go through clothes before the colors wear out. Also, where I live was voted the worst dressed city in America, so I don't have a lot of competition to have pristine atire.

I was talking to someone else and she looked at me like I had a third eye when I said I didn't sort my colors.

I changed the option from "sorta OCD" to just sort the laundry. I wasn't meaning that any of you were OCD by doing it, I was just using it as a term. Sorry.

because towels and sheets are washed in hot and everything else in cold.

Quoting PinkParadox:

Why separate towels but not colors...lol. Yes, I do. White, dark & misc.

I throw it all in and use cold water and it doesn't bleed or anything. Im allergic to bleach so its not like I can use it on whites.

I sort it by towels, sheets/blankets, whites, darks, and colors. Reds go in with the darks in my house and sometimes I do a load of just rags, dish towels etc since my dishwasher doesn't work well and I use a lot of dishrags and dish towels.

What do you mean? I wash towels and sheets in hot to kill germs. Clothes in cold so the colors don't bleed.

I have 4 clothes hampers in my house. Towels, colors, whites/grays and jeans. I wash darks twice a week and everything else once a week. Works great! lol I don't think I am OCD about it though.

Ahhhh. I wash everything in warm with cold rinse. I figure the clothes we're outside sweating in have just as many germs as our sheets. The dryer kills what the washer doesn't. I separate everything by color, not type...so I just didn't understand :)
