My little secret
I have a secret. I don't separate my laundry. GASP! But how do you get your whites as blinding as Tom Cruise's smile? I don't. Whaaaat? That's right. I don't. I occasionally will soak whites in biz or bleach or help them get their sparkle back. Most of the time though, I don't tend to care if my white's glow in the dark. For me, what's more important is just getting it done. If I do laundry everyday, starting a load while my coffee is pouring itself (I love my Keurig) then my laundry gets done. If I worry about sorting everything, then it doesn't. Don't worry, Mom, I will add this disclaimer: my mother is horrified at this and wants you to know she taught me to do laundry "correctly". She also tried (very hard) to teach me how to make a pie crust, yet there are 2 store-bought ones in my freezer. Some lessons just didn't take I guess. I suppose one day I'll return to sorting laundry, most likely when the kids are big enough to do it themselves and I will be compelled to teach them the "correct" way to do it. Until then, if you see me with socks that are more "mother of pearl" than "white as snow" you'll know why.
