vote changed, thank you for your diligence.

Nah. Colours don’t run so don’t see the point.

Separate:
Normal clothes - 30°/40°
Gym/ football stuff - 60°
Towels, bedding - 60°

Ive never separated my colours and whites once in my life and to date ive had 1 (one) case of colour running when i washed a brand new bedsheet in with a white top.

i don’t have anything white but i separate light colours and dark colours so i’ve gone with yes. it’s not so much the risk of colours running, more just the light-coloured things gradually going grey if washed with dark colours.

Never have to faff about separating when I wash because it goes in separated.

Remind me to take this to the absolute game changers thread.

Whites and baby gear (which is mainly light) together. Everything else in separately

#13

Nah, i was everything at 30 and nothing has ever run at thay temperature.

That said, if I eould remove anything i instinctively felt were risky.

#14

I make a judgement call on whether stuff is mixable at the time and always get it right cos I’m a god damn professional

#15

Yup this, although given I wear my white work shirts for so many washes the armpits go stiff and yellow the effort is largely ceremonial.

depends. don’t make a point of separating them all the time but i’ll often hesitate to put a good white t-shirt in with loads of coloured washing and hold it back to wash with the other white t-shirts and white towels. not all the time though.

this isn’t speculation btw, i had a much-loved pale pink jumper that i got for christmas when i was living in halls of residence (so couldn’t really separate laundry) that went grey after a few months. RIP jumper :cry:

Always wash whites and coloureds separately. Always add one of these babies in the colour wash

#19

Amaze me these things. How the fuck does it catch colour. How does it know???
