I would say that 99.9% of the time I do my own laundry. Every piece of clothing seems to have it's own manual. Some need to be washed in cold water, some hand washed, some go in the dryer for the full amount of time, some go in only for a few minutes so I can avoid ironing and some never go in the dryer at all. Knowing the way to handle each piece of clothing is almost an art form, so for this reason I don't trust anyone (my husband) to do my laundry. The one and probably only time my husband (trying to be very helpful) decided to throw all my laundry into the dryer it included this blouse. Silk blouse.....it shrunk, luckily I can still wear it. It just barely tucks into my pants but miraculously only shrunk in length.
