Would You Rather: Never Have To Do Laundry Or Dishes Again?

I don’t know about you all, but I find household chores just so mundane and monotonous. How many times can you get spaghetti sauce out of white shirt successfully before you are just over it? How many times can you get the caked on grease off of your skillet before you are considered the dish washing champion of the world?

Personally, I find dishes and laundry my two most hated household duties.

Why?

Because they never stop. There is approximately one millisecond between the time you finish the laundry and someone changes their clothes. Or after cleaning your entire kitchen, someone puts an empty cereal bowl and spoon in the sink, and you just want to throw them straight into trashcan.

True confession time (don’t judge me people!): My mother LOVED doing laundry. Loved it. She meticulously separated the whites from the colors and never ever just threw everything in together on a cold water cycle. She took great pride in her ability to get out even the toughest of grass stains. She loved it so much that for my entire first semester of college, I mailed my clothes home for her to wash and return. I mean, sure it took two of my biggest guy friends to carry the box to the mailing room for me, but boy did my clothes come back April fresh!

I finally caved and learned to do it on my own. I saved up my quarters from beer pong babysitting and found myself spending hours in the local laundromat with my friends, attempting to study in between moving the clothes from the washers to the dryers. Fun times for sure.

I never really saw dishes as such a hassle until I had kids. Because, hello, sippy cups!

Those bad boys come with multiple parts that have to removed for washing and then reassembled with ninja like precision after washing so you don’t wind up leaking chocolate milk all over the back of your car. Don’t ask how I know this.

And kids just have a way of going through plastic bowls and cups like they have a personal servant who will clean up their mess for them. Oh wait…

Like laundry, the washing of the dishes just never goes away. Unless we go to a strictly paper plate/plastic utensil kind of lifestyle, my sink will always be full. And my dishwasher will always need to be loaded or unloaded or sometimes both. I cannot begin to tell you the number of days where my dishwasher has been completely loaded, unloaded, reloaded and unloaded again.

Anyone else feeling my pain?

Do you find yourself stepping over laundry baskets of clean clothes just hoping that they will magically fold themselves? Do you pass by your sink and see the dishes and just keep walking?

If you could give up one of these chores for the rest of your life, which one would it be? Obviously, you will never have to do it again, but it will still be done for you. No living in squalor or having to buy new underwear because you are out of clean pairs. You’re just completely off the hook for one of these household duties.

Laundry or Dishes

So, would you rather never have to do laundry or dishes again?

Would You Rather: Never Have To Do Laundry Or Dishes Again? — 148 Comments

  1. My mother loved (and still loves) doing laundry. I never saw her fascination with it myself. I still don’t have a dishwasher, but have dreams about having one. So, I am going with never having to wash another dish again, because I seriously don’t know what that looks or feels like, but would truly love to!! :)

    • I will cross all of my crossables that you get a dishwasher…it definitely takes *some* of the hassle out of having to do them! 😉

  2. Dishes DEUCES!!!! I hate cleaning up the kitchen. Oddly enough, I’m like your Mother. I love doing laundry but I don’t have kids. I do laundry once every 2 weeks and it takes up most of the morning. I get a million other things done in between. It’s productive day for me.

    • I think if I only had to do it every couple weeks (who am I kidding, I totally do wait that long!), it would be less of a hassle. It is really the folding and putting away that drives me bonkers!

  3. I would gladly give up laundry duty for the rest of my life. I always have at least 1-2 loads waiting to be washed. Regular clothes, stinky running clothes, kids’ clothes, towels, sheets…it’s never ending! Because I work at home, I’ll toss a load in the washer, but then I completely forget about it. Or, I’ll remember to put it in the dryer, and then I’ll completely forget about it and the clothes will still be damp. Sigh! At least my youngest is no longer spitting up on everything in sight. That added at least 1 extra load of laundry every day!

    • I do the exact same thing Nicole…just totally forget about them for hours/days at a time! Sometimes so long that I have to rewash. That is annoying!!

  4. Secret option #3: vacuuming. I HATE vacuuming.

    If I had to choose one of your 2, I’d give up laundry. I actually don’t mind either, but right bow we live in a condo with shared, coin-op machines in the basement – 4 flights of stairs/no elevator down. Laundry is a PRODUCTION, especially since I have to wait for a time when my husband is home or schlep both kids up and down with me. I *dream* of in-unit facilities, and chose our vacation rental based on the fact it had machines! I did laundry our last night and everyone came home with clean clothes. :)

    • HA HA HA on secret option #3! That totally made me giggle!
      Laundry is enough of a production without having it be 4 flights of stairs away…UGH!!

  5. Wait…does that mean I never have to put the clothes away either? They are magically put away because sign me up. Right. Now. Please. As I type this, I have four baskets of clean clothes in various rooms of my house. I can’t keep up. We are living out of the baskets. My vote is laundry all the way. We eat out so much (thank you travel sports) that I can handle the dishes the few times we do eat here.

  6. Confession time, I cannot stand a dirty kitchen so I am constantly doing the dishes, however, my daughter & I have enough clothes so I don’t have to wash clothes for like 2.5 weeks…lol the Hubs does his own b/c they wouldn’t get washed… hey we were both single for years before we decided to get hitched…LOL. definitely LAUNDRY, despise laundry.

  7. Holy shit, laundry! I don’t even have to think about this one. LOL Doing dishes is relaxing to me. Laundry is worse than going to the dentist. And I suck at it. Want white clothes? Never give them to me to wash. It’s like a dump and run. Whatever is in the washing machine – it gets washed and dryed.

    • I couldn’t agree with you more, if I had said it myself. I despise laundry cause it never is done, ever. Plus we live out of baskets and the dryer. Makes my husband furious but after 25 years he is mostly over it. Hey! I’ve been good enough to wash and dry the laundry, it won’t kill you to get it, excuse the wrinkles…

  8. I don’t mind the folding, but I seem to have an issue with putting away the clean stuff. So we end up with mountains of carefully folded and sorted clothes, which I inevitably start pulling things out of to wear, ending up with a mess. By then I’ve forgotten it’s clean and wash it, starting the cycle all over again.

    That being said, I’d rather never have to do dishes! Mostly because my husband refuses to do them because he hates it (yes, Ryan, it’s absolutely the highlight of MY life!!). Come to think of it, I think he’s the one that washes the clean clothes. And he puts the kids’ stuff away, without sorting things like shirts, pants, and underwear, in places I would never think to look for it.

    Never mind, I can’t decide! :)

    • Putting away the clothes is so hard and I detest it. I am terrible about doing it and then I wind up with a wrinkled mess of clothes, too!

  9. I would rather never do laundry again. Ever. The laundry is constantly hanging over my head. Oh, if only! :)

  10. I prefer to never do the laundry again. I hate the kitchen too but I don’t have to fold and repeat several times a week. I hate folding clothes and washing endless amounts then ironing just the entire process drains me.

    • It is a totally draining process Kita…we completely agree with you…don’t even get Lisa started on the ironing! 😉

  11. I prefer to do neither, but since my family has to eat and naked is not the going fashion I guess something has to be done. I think the dishes would have to go in my house. Laundry is kind of a start it and forget it thing (and I am often surprised by a sour load I really did forget in the washer), but it seems to be a minor inconvenience compared to loading and unloading that dishwasher two dozen times a week.

  12. Hey! I grew up in a time when the clothes got hung up outside and guess who had to do it as part of her chores? (then again as kids we also made off with clotheslines for jump rope but that’s another story) I hate both tasks but would rather not do the dishes as they are everyday and laundry not as often.

    • I kind of remember when my mom used to hang clothes outside, too, and my grandmother hung up everything. I remember helping her in the summers when I would visit her. :)

  13. It’s a tough one because I hate them both. I’d probably keep the laundry if I could give up dishes. My kids are 15-22 so they are in charge of their own laundry, for the most part, and my husband has been doing his own for years. You would think just my own and some towels and sheets now and then wouldn’t be too hard. You’d be wrong. And even after all these years I still kind of suck at it. Those stains you so proudly tackle? Yeah, those shirts just become work shirts at our house.

    But I hate dishes so much that we got rid of most of ours. Each of us has our own plate, bowl, cups, and silverware. One of each, with a rare exception. Each of us is in charge of washing his/her own eating supplies. It sounds great and it has cut down on a lot of dishes. But we still have to prepare and cook food. There are pots and pans and bowls and whisks and all kinds of yucky stuff that just keeps getting dirty. Ugh!

    Okay, now I’m depressed. I’m going back to bed.

  14. Please, oh please, oh please tell me this is part two of your Blogiversary giveaway and one lucky commenter (me, me, me) will actually win this prize! I choose laundry! Hands down!! Especially because our washer is broken right now and the loads are piling up!! I actually washed clothes in the sink last night because I was worried something would stain since I have no idea when I’ll get to the laundromat. Please pick me to win a Lifetime Laundry Fairy! I won’t even make her eat off of paper plates!

    • HA HA HA Rabia! This comment made me BURST out laughing!! And then I called and read it to Lisa, and she burst out laughing, too! :)

  15. I’d rather not have to do dishes ever again. I confess sometimes I don’t cook, just because I’m already dreading the clean up. In fact, it’s a good thing that BF doesn’t hate them as much as I do or we probably *would* live in squalor. Laundry isn’t so bad though, especially towels. I like looking at my pretty little towel tower all full of clean fluffy folded towels.

  16. I have to say for me it is the dishes! I loath doing them and was truly cursed when we got our current house with a really deep sink. I can pile a whole day’s worth in there and not even have to see them!

    The laundry is annoying, but have trained the husband to at least wash and fold… he actually hasn’t found the kids closets to put anything away, but we are still in training! :)

    • Robert hasn’t found our girls’ closets either!! 😉 And when he actually does on occasion put something in a drawer it is always the wrong drawer!

  17. Dishes! Dishes! I choose dishes!

    Laundry can pile up for a few days/a week/ whatever and you can just catch up. Dishes get gross and stink and fungus grows on them… Not that I’d ever let that happen… 😉

    Plus we don’t have a dishwasher. Maybe if I was sitting there with a washboard I’d be singing a different tune.

  18. BOO to laundry! LOL! It’s not so much the actual washing/drying, I mean a machine is doing all the work. It’s the folding and putting the clothes away that makes me way to poke a pencil in my eye! I actually don’t have a problem with washing dishes and when I do I have to admit I wash them by hand. . .I don’t trust dishwashers, or maybe that’s the OCD talking.

  19. I would give up laundry duty in a heartbeat! I DESPISE it. Dishes aren’t my favorite either, but they are not nearly as painful as laundry. We have a dishwasher and my kids load their dishes in – laundry just takes longer and I hate touching everyone’s dirty underwear. Eeeww.

    • I despise it, too Dana! With a hot burning passion. I so feel your pain! I need to train my kids to put their dishes in the dishwasher. That would make my life easier!

  20. Ummm…don’t hate me but I don’t mind either that much – mostly because my oldest son does most of the kitchen clean-up these days (just because!!). And, Chris does the laundry almost every Sunday (except when he has drill weekend or is on a trip). So when I do those chores I don’t mind them – and when I fold clothes, I catch up on reality TV shows that I have DVRed.

  21. Your mom really was the quenn of laundry. When I was a kid, her and my mom would do laundry and iron for hours and hours. I really don’t mind either one since I do each only about once a week. It seems like you should be able to force the kids to rinse the bowl and put it in the dishwasher without having Social Services intervene.

  22. I’d definitely choose to opt of doing the laundry! Laundry is done EVERY SINGLE DAY in my house (I have resorted to tossing it all in the same load on a cold wash too!) and I’d love nothing more than to alleviate myself of doing it or hearing it! The constant sound of the washer and dryer drives me NUTS!

  23. Well, that’s a hard one. I have so many people in this house that I am always piled to the ceiling with dishes and with laundry….I would say laundry. I can easily wash and put the dishes away, but I can’t make everyone put their clothes away, so I give up.

  24. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, or in this case lemon Palmolive. I would take doing the dishes over doing the laundry any day of the week. I actually love doing dishes. I love my cute pink rubber gloves with the black and white ruffle that allow me to plunge my delicate little hands into super hot soapy water to get the job done. Honestly if I never had to match another pair of socks or empty change out of another pocket or fish another “now pink” t-shirt from a load of what was supposed to be whites I would be one deliriously happy gal.

    • You know what, I need some adorable dish gloves, too! I bet that would make it much more fun! I like the way you think Mo! :)

  25. LAUNDRY!!! It wouldn’t be so bad (or at least I like to think so!), if we had a washer and dryer in our apartment. We don’t even have hook ups. So going to the laundromat is both expensive and a hastle. I have to leave whatever needs to be done at home, to go stay at the laundromat so no one does anything to my clothes. Most mornings, I could do laundry while my son sleeps, if I had the appliances here. Dishes…. so long as I keep on top of them, I don’t mind, because it’s only my family of 3, and (quite often) company. And those I try to do while my son sleeps. But yes, laundry! And putting it away! Ugh! My husband’s constant complaint is how messy our room is from laundry hanging all over everywhere. Well, after I’ve spent half the day at the laundromat, I have to come home and get dinner done and everything cleaned that I couldn’t do while out! Okay, rant over! Love this post!

  26. Oh my word! Dishes be gone!!!! I HATE to wash dishes, yet I never use my dishwasher. Well, I’m working on making my husband the dishwasher until the baby is old enough to start busting suds. I also want to you wish The Dose Girls a very, very happy anniversary. I’m a day late and like $3 short. Blame it on time and not my adoration for you both. I actually look to you two as the veterans of blogging. Thought you had been around much longer. Glad to have “met” you both! Keep it up! ~Andrea, your loyal reader and fan

    • Awww, thank you so much Andrea!! We appreciate you as a reader so much! :) You rock! Dishes are so annoying, but why in the world are you not using your dishwasher??!! What am I missing? 😉

  27. I hate doing laundry. At least with the dishes, you can leave them in there and use your dishwasher like another cabinet. I fantasize about having two dishwashers, one for clean, one for dirty and I never have to empty them. With the washer and dryer, if you need to do another load, some one is going to have to do some work putting them away.

    • I would kill to have 2 dishwashers, too…I have been in a couple homes where they did, and it seemed like a dream come true. Something tells me adding an extra washer and dryer would not seem that way! 😉

  28. I don’t like either one either. But ding-ding-ding, I’d rather do dishes. The laundry is a bigger mound here and we have two full baskets of socks that we haven’t dealt with in months.

  29. Definitely the laundry!!! There is a never ending stream of it and it makes me want to throw out every piece of clothing, linen, towel and anything else that needs to be cleaned!!! I HATE IT!!!! I also hate doing the dishwasher dance of loading, unloading, reloading – it’s awful BUT laundry in my house is way worse!!!

    • I have often considered throwing away clothing because the mere thought of doing any more laundry makes me want to cry! 😉

  30. I would give up laundry. I have spent 14 years working in a big box clothing store, and have folded and put away enough clothing to last me a lifetime. Besides, my kids are pretty good dishwashers.

    I CAN NOT believe you shipped your laundry home to your mom! I brought laundry home with me, of course, but actually mailing it is an incredibly bold move. Don’t tell your kids that story!

    • I definitely cannot ever tell my kids that option….can you even imagine??!! What was my mother thinking even offering that??!! 😉

  31. I think I’d rather do laundry. I do several loads every Friday. It’s sort of my ritual. Since I work from home, I’m at the computer in between loads. It’s not so bad really. What I hate about dishes is the fact that I can barely reach the shelves to put some of our coffee mugs and glasses away. (Our kitchen has very old and not well place cabinets!)

    • We have a few cabinets like that, too and my hubby insists on keeping his Tervis tumblers on the top shelf…needless to say, I have to practically become Gumby to put them away! 😉

  32. Tough one – if I got rid of laundry, I wouldn’t have anything to complain about/act like a martyr over. And that’s no fun. But if I got rid of dishes, I wouldn’t have anything to hide behind when I don’t feel like playing yet another endless game of pretend house with my daughters. I’ll go with laundry!

  33. I’m gonna go with dishes. Only because they seem to never end. I do laundry once a week and it’s all done by the time I go to bed. Dishes…3X a day and times in between. I do, however, do a lot of cold water washing for the laundry. But whatever. It’s mostly clean or at least not obviously dirty.

  34. I kinda like doing dishes. Don’t tell my husband this but I usually do the dishes while watching bad TV on my iPhone. So relaxing. I like dishes because of it. I don’t even mind laundry so much as the hefting up the basement stairs (with the broken hallway light) and the putting it away. So I gladly would give up laundry for life.

  35. Dishes for me! I loathe, loathe, loathe doing them, so I often don’t, but our kitchen is in the middle of the house and if anyone comes over of course they get to see it in all it’s glory. I love a clean kitchen but I hate the constant round of dirty dishes… ugh!

  36. I think I’ve come to peace with the mounds of laundry. I get my kids to collect it all and sort. Then I watch trash tv while folding (although recently have started my kids helping but I’m picky so sometimes it’s easier for me to do). It takes hours but I love the trash tv time. Dishes. Ugh. Stinky food. Clattering of cutlery. Yuck.

  37. You might as well add cooking and cleaning to the list too!!! Seriously. Hate. It. All. I mean, today I was going to make muffins for these new neighbors that have moved in, and I looked at the package and read “just add milk” (cause that’s how I roll) and here’s the thing-

    I totally sighed and thought, “ugh- I don’t want to deal with that…”. Adding MILK PEOPLE!!! That – THAT is how bad it’s gotten over here. But- since you didn’t include cooking (which I hate) and added two of my other foes- (is foes the right word? Wait- I’m gonna Google it) (SWEET! I totally nailed it!!- Onward…) I would have to say….

    DISHES. Because I hate standing still- and my hands get all peely and dry…and my kitchen is CONSTANTLY dirty and well- laundry sucks, but I’ll deal.

    😉

    • Can we add cooking and cleaning to the list?? I am totally on board with that! 😉
      I burst out laughing at your muffin story…I cannot tell you how many times I have had that exact same thought about making something! :)

  38. I don’t do either. That is what a family is for. But before I had my husband trained my laundry was used as a training spot for those wishing to climb Mount Everest.

  39. Tough call! I would say probably I’d rather give up laundry because of it has the sort (sometimes), de-stain/pre-treat (most of the time), wash, dry, fold and put away aspects where the dishes just have wash (though sometimes that requires soaking and/or scrubbing), dry and put away aspects. Less steps = less time, and that makes a gal happy! That’s how I’d roll… 😀

  40. Given that I have three kids and me, and I run almost every morning, which is an extra outfit right there, I’d give up laundry in a heart beat. Plus, laundry is a three step process. Wash, fold put away. It’s never ending! Dishes I don’t mind so much, and there are always paper plates you know!

  41. Well since my hubby does the laundry and the dishes I shouldn’t even answer. BUT if I had to choose I wouldn’t do the dishes! My washer/dryer is super new and has all kinds of fun buttons and features! :)

  42. I currently have no dishwasher and my washer/dryer is in the apartment building hallway, shared and requires quarters. Soooo… I use a lot of paper plates and buy a lot of new underwear to avoid doing either. BUT I would definitely rather never do dishes again. I hate doing them.

  43. I don’t mind doing the laundry at all. To me, it is kind of relaxing. The dishes are another story! I dread doing them especially since there are just two of us at home. Sometimes I let them go for a couple of days because it feels like a waste to fill up the sink for just a little bit of dishes.

  44. Laundry, hands down. Most of the time our dishwasher is run nearly every other day…and there’s a certain satisfaction in seeing a clean kitchen sink after the dishes are all done. But those D@$! laundry baskets are always full before I get the chance to finish the laundry. Not to mention my hatred of ironing. I would LOVE to have that done for me.

  45. I would gladly give up doing laundry! It seems in every post someone is talking about laundry in some form today. :) What is it, were we all doing laundry when one of the biggest events of our lives took place?

  46. I HATE dishes. If I weren’t environmentally conscious we would eat off paper plates and use plastic cups and cutlery. I don’t mind laundry. I like keeping things moving from washer to dryer. I even like folding. But I don’t like putting it away, and my kids are little so I get no help (don’t ask about Hubby). Often it stays on the sofa, where I fold. Hence my totally unPinterest-worthy, Sanford and Son house.

  47. My husband does the dishes, I just have to empty the dishwasher. So, I guess I would love to give up laundry. The problem is, I don’t trust anyone else to do the laundry as the others in my household have shrunk or died or bleached too many of my clothes. So unless I can hire a laundry service I am stuck with it!!

  48. I have to say, without a dishwasher, I would never want to do dishes again…I hate laundry…more hate waiting for it to dry and putting it away. On that note though, at least we have a system. Since our kitchen is tiny and we use an OLD, ANTIQUATED, ENERGY EATING dishwasher for pot and pan storage…we are always washing TONS of dishes and have little space for them to dry.

  49. I vote no more laundry. I don’t really mind either too much (probably because there’s just two of us), but the laundry is downstairs, so I’d get rid of it based solely on the fact that I’m too lazy to go downstairs to switch loads and carry them all back upstairs.

  50. OK, ready for this. I actually like doing laundry. Yep. You read that right. I am that weird friend you have who enjoys sorting clothes, loves the smell of detergent and softener, and finds it relaxing to fold and put away the clean clothes.

    Dishes on the other hand? Well, let me just say this: one year in college the apartment I was living in didn’t have a dishwasher. At first, I really tried to keep up with the dirty dishes. Then, I started to get lazy, and dishes would be left in the sink for weeks at a time. Then, I started noticing new life forms growing on those dishes. Then, I started investing in paper plates and plastic utensils.

    • Cracking up at your last paragraph Kristen! Yeah, not having a dishwasher would be really the worst!
      I think my mom felt very much like you do about laundry! :)

  51. Oh God, how I hate that single dirty bowl in my clean sink! Dirty dishes are like weeds, growing non-stop in our kitchens. I’d like to eliminate them forever! I kinda get away with doing the laundry once a week because I handwash the toddler’s clothes.

  52. I admit, I will wash a dish in the sink rather than unload the dishwasher. Those clean dishes can just sit. Isn’t that odd?

    Aside from that, I don’t mind cleaning the kitchen at all (I can usually persuade the man to unload the dreaded dishwasher) . I would give up laundry duty in a millisecond.

    • Interesting Julie…I like the way you think! I tend to just leave the dish in the sink AND not unload the dishwasher…I should probably get a new system! 😉

  53. Oh, the dilemma! Here’s the thing: I don’t mind doing dishes. Has never bothered me and I actually find it therapeutic almost. Almost.
    So you think it would be EASY for me to say laundry. BUT.
    My husband SUCKS. AT. FOLDING. He does most of the laundry (I know, right???) and everytime he asks to do mine I say “sure, but don’t fold it all wacky!” But he ALWAYS does and my shirts end up folded up like some fancy origami restaurant napkin and when unfolded it is a wrinkled mess.
    So I’m going to have to say dishes, because I cannot forever go with wrinkled origami shirts.

    • HA HA HA Christie!! This comment made me BURST out laughing! I feel like we are going to need a photo of the origami shirts! 😉

  54. This is the easiest would you rather ever!!
    I would give up doing the dishes for sure. Even thinking about it makes me all happy inside :)
    I don’t mind doing laundry. I hate folding it when done. That’s for my husband.

  55. I would give up doing dishes forever!! And I know the pain of sippie cups…ugh! Luckily I have a pretty helpful husband who does the dishes most of the time. I don’t mind loading the dishwasher but unloading it is the worst. I actually kind of like doing laundry but it is a never ending task. Just when everything is washed and put away, the dirty ones pile up fast. :( Wouldn’t it be lovely if we all could afford to pay someone to do the chores we like least?? :)

  56. Well, clearly they both suck, but for some reason laundry is my nemesis. I just cannot follow through. Sure, I start it, but I can NOT finish it all the way to putting it away. (Did I already read and comment on this? Crap. I’m on heavy duty cold medicine right now. Note to self- don’t read blogs on drugs.)

    • HA HA HA Stephanie! This is your only comment on this post! 😉 And I am with you 100%…I just cannot follow through on finishing all the laundry!

  57. I HATE doing dishes! There’s just 3 of us in the house, so it’s not enough to use the dishwasher unless I stockpile them for a few days. I’d rather do laundry because then it will give me a reason to zone out on tv while I fold clothes. Lol…

    • It is totally hours at a time for me, too, especially when you factor in how many times I have to run the dryer for an extra ten minutes to fluff the clothes I left sitting in there! 😉

  58. While both are hated chores, I think I’d rather get rid of dishes forever. Laundry isn’t fun (especially the folding and putting it away part), but there are few chores worse than scrubbing food particles off plates. Yuck!

    • It is super gross, isn’t it??!! Especially when someone (cough, my hubby, cough, cough!) didn’t bother to even attempt to rinse off his plate! 😉

  59. I don’t know that I HATE these chores, but I certainly don’t like doing them. Whenever I’m unloading my dishwasher or at the laundromat I think about the number of times I’ve done that in my life and then I think about the number of times my parents have done it, and that REALLY gets to me. You’re right, it never ends. (Though if I had a washing machine in my home, I’d probably be thrilled. Laundromats suck.)

    • Laundromats totally make the process so hard, right?! And I totally agree with you…when I think of how many times I have done laundry and how many more times I will have to do it in my lifetime I want to cry! 😉

  60. Dishes 100%. After working as a dishwasher at a restaurant for several years you would think I am a pro at keeping up with dishes. Wrong! I’m the type who would much rather buy paper plates or reuse a baking tray (as a plate) several times than do dishes.

    Plus with laundry you throw it in and kick back for 40-60 min while it goes and there’s the classic fold while watching tv move. Dishes require effort and time. Two things any college student lacks when getting home from the library at 10:30 pm.

    • Oh forgot to mention I also don’t own a dishwasher. As a kid, its an annoying chore that you have to load and unload. When you come from college and can just put a glass in a machine after one use, it’s the freakin’ holy grail.
