    I've never separated whites, I've already got enough loads as it is!
    We rarely wear white - its usually bras, a couple of shirts and maybe some skirts or dresses thar are mostly light.

    I also do a light coloured load for my good shirts, skirts and dresses.

    Mainly habit, but I washed a red sheet (which had been washed before) with some lightsr colours and it stained them so Im slightly more vigilant now.

    Until DS started high school which thinks it is a good idea for boys to wear white shirts the only white worn in this house is DS's cricket uniform which always needs soaking in napisan first to get rid of grass and red ball stains so is washed alone. Now his school shirts are washed with his cricket stuff. I don't separate dark/light & never wash jeans unless they are dirty, in which case they are washed alone

    I don't separate either. I used to do light and dark loads when the kids were little, but now I just chuck it all in. We don't have much white stuff, so it would be weeks to get a full load! I use Omo which I think is the best stuff. It gets out most stains and anything light stays white or its colour. I also use Preen spray for anything that might not wash out like tomatoe stains and if DH's clothes are particularly dirty or have grease etc.

    If I buy something new that I think might run (jeans or red things), it gets washed separately the first couple of times and then it gets chucked in with the rest.

    I'm sorry but this made me laugh. I hope you don't have to wait much longer.

    I am drinking pineapple cruisers in honour of my cockatiel - pet of nearly 15 years - who died this morning. He loved yellow!

    As for washing, I wash whites with light colours, unless I don't care if they go grey. Since we don't wear much white, most of our white things (bibs, socks etc.) I don't really care about. I've had far too many white things go grey in the normal washes to just throw them in if I care about the colour!

    Having a wine in honour of a mate gone too soon - 11 years yesterday, and feeling a bit sad for my nephew who also lost his 14yo best mate to suicide yesterday too 😢 lots of love and tears.

    All this talk of mixing lights with darks when washing has probably sent generations of women into a massive tizzy Mum won't let me wash anything. I'm 37
