It`s usually not about not "knowing". They`re just too lazy to do it themselves, it`s not like doing laundry is hard.

What`s so funny? This is obviously for Special ed people. I`ve seen something like this before.

Does anybody really put that much effort into laundry? I toss everything I own into the washer, I don`t care what "special instructions" it could possibly have. Then I throw everything into the dryer, and then sort of drape it over things so they don`t wrinkle. I don`t fold or sort poo.

I`m a Special Ed. teacher, and these are the kinds of assignments we give the kids in the Life Skills program. It`s not that unusual. And TBH, given the number of kids I met at college who were living away from home and DIDN`T know how to do their laundry, I`m thinking this isn`t such a bad idea.

You don`t need to sort the laundry if you wash it in cold water. Also, it gets it cleaner. Laundry detergent is activated by cold water, so if you use hot water, it gets your clothes as clean as regular soap would. I learned that in a biology class.

Omg! I seriously had to do this when I was in gr. 6. My parents thought it was stupid. They figured that whoever couldn`t figure out how to do laundry probably should be in a `special` school.

This is something parents should teach their kids at home. Schools can`t even manage to teach kids how to read and write properly, let alone having to waste time and taxpayer money on sh*t like this.

"I sorted by degree of soil"

Do people do that? Unless it`s an extreme case, ie jeans that`ve been soaked in mud for a week, is this necessary?

I don`t get why parents can`t just teach their own kids to do their laundry. You don`t need a goddamn high school diploma to do laundry.

There`s no point to me sorting by color...I have nothing (save for socks) that is white...every t-shirt I have is black...only because I sweat waaayyyy too much, and you can`t see it with black.
This is kind of ridiculous.

Wait...why would you sort laundry by fabric and construction? And I don`t even know what degree of soil is! I guess I`ve just been doing laundry wrong.

I think it`s great they expect this. I have heard several horror stories from freshmen in college destroying clothes or the washers because they are incapable of following directions. One girl managed to shrink her jeans, which I didn`t even know was *possible.* I have managed these last few months just fine, since I have been doing my own laundry for years.

Am I supposed to sort my laundry by material and degree of soil?

Because I just sort by color... And a few special things that I have to wash seperately...

I think I would fail this assignment anyway. I only do my laundry once every two weeks, since I have enough clothes to make them last, lol.

To be fair, I raised 4 kids before going to uni, so I knew some of the stuff, but the bank stuff was the stuff I had no clue about.

Even so I know people who can`t do laundry or clean a house.

Hell, I want kids doing more of this poo, not less.

Education should include:
How to live on your own, how a credit card works, how loans work, how a bank works, how to buy a home in your home country, how to cook, how to clean, etc.

I was brilliant in school, and subsequently I found no lesson in uni hard. This was the poo I needed help with, because I was living on my own for the first time, in a foreign country, and had to figure this all out on my own.

I agree with Naturalblue and kw. When I was in Jr. High school (middle school with out sixth grade) home econ was required for boys and girls, and laundry was part of it. How many parents would teach their kids (sons especially) if it wasn`t part of a course?

I think that this is great. I wish schools taught more stuff with real life applications like this. Kids today rely on technology and their parents too much and never learn the basics of day to day living. I once met a 16 year old boy who had no idea how to wash a dish. Tragic.

Fabric and construction? Whut? I`m not sure I know what fabric most of my clothes are made of, and I`ll be damned if I even know what construction means in this context.

Billy, you`re not alone there - this may hve happened to me once or twice in uni.

Fun tip - soap is soap. If you don`t have any clothes soap, just use dish soap, hair soap, whatever soap. It`s all good.

What the hell? You don`t need to seperate laundry due to those three standards. You need three piles of dirty clothes. Normal colored clothes, white colored clothes, and delicates because who cares really cares if running colors get on your underwear.

doriansilver: I agree.

I had to teach most of my college roommates how to do laundry, dishes and cook basic food. One girl didn`t even know how to make her bed. No joke. They all had moms that would do EVERYTHING for them. I know the moms mean well, but really, they just raise helpless adults.

And seriously, sorting your laundry by all 3 of those? You must have a room devoted to your massive pile of smelly laundry that sits and waits while you save up enough for 1 load.

Seriously though, 3 loads of laundry sounds a lot easier than writing an essay or doing some funky equations, and 2 weeks to do it? Wish my school was like this, even at uni I still brass necked getting my clothes washed at home.
