Should you put your socks together with the laundry into the washing machine?

    I heard there are two ways to wash your laundry using a washing machine.

    1. Put your dirty clothes along with your dirty socks together and simply put the detergent in it.

    2. Split apart the dirty clothes and dirty socks, and wash them seperately.

    Which choice should I pick?

    I just became independent, so I don't really know how to wash my clothes. Can someone give a simple answer for this dilemma?:confused:

    Number 1. Less work.

    EDIT: happy independency!

    Do it all together. I become independant as of tomorrow too so I'm kind of in the same boat. And because it costs £1 per wash, I sure as hell won't be doing them seperately.

    Hm...I see.

    Will the bacteria in the socks make the clothes more dirtier?

    No...that's why it's called a WASHING machine.

    And don't bundle them together, separate the socks from their pairs otherwise they wont get clean...

    Together. Just make sure you separate the darks from the lights, else you wind up with pink shirts, underwear, and socks; or something.

    Meh, that doesn't even happen unless you use bleach, which I never do.

    EDIT: Nevermind...sqrage is referring to the socks. And Genkora was referring to the placement of the laundry.

    It could happen even without bleach!

    Yeah, I've wreaked a couple of shirts by throwing them in with darker colours. (I'm still living with my parent, but I need to do my own laundry).

    You never washed clothes before now...?

    It does if you throw a red shirt in with a bunch of white stuff.

    Never happened to me, guess it depends on the type of dye.

    My mom does my laundry. :cool:

    Though I know how, and you're gonna need to know how for when you're out on your own. You're gonna want to learn that fast. :thup:

    Really? I did it on purpose once with my ex and then I wasn't allowed to do laundry anymore, and then I did it accidentally a few weeks ago and not... well now all my shit's pink. Which isn't exactly terrible, but I'm sure it will be made into some sort of gay joke in the future like my phone is.
