There are many things that separate different generations, and trying to list them all would be nearly impossible. It seems that some people try to use them as either an excuse or an advantage, depending on which side they are on. Reddit is a place that welcomes all kinds of discussions, and the one related to generational divides is a very curious one, especially when it comes to laundry. It may serve as a starting point for many feuds, but it is well worth the risk. You can read the whole thread on Twitter.
1. The laundry
This is something that many people think that only the older generations do, but we think that many young people know how to separate their laundry.
Here is yet another young female who seems to always do what it takes to launder her clothes the right way. It does not take that much to do things right.
3. The decision
Here is one person who decided to stop caring for such things a long time ago. It seems this user has a point, because detergents have come a long way, plus clothes are more resistant.
4. The argument
Here is a person who decided to share their honest opinion, and we could agree on that matter. Separating your clothes before laundry is a must, and it has nothing to do with age or anything like that.
5. The opinion
Talking about opinions, here is another person who decided to use a bit of sarcasm to describe how they feel about this topic. We believe we understand what this person meant, and we agree.
6. The example
It seems that some people have the best example to follow, yet they still choose a different route. We tend to agree with this person, too, and separating the whites is a must.
7. The honesty
Here is one person who was very honest about their experience with laundering clothes. We know what it feels like to not have enough money to cover basic needs. It is not a nice feeling.
8. The fabrics
The thing about the older generation’s habits is that they had the kind of quality of fabrics that required special attention, at least when it came to dyed fabrics. This is why they always separated the laundry.
9. The cost
It appears that some people have a very pragmatic reason for not separating their laundry. They thought that paying double the cost of a normal laundry procedure was too much.
10. The additional operation
It seems that some people are keen on doing their laundry the right way, and they never miss a detail about it. Air drying the clothes is good for the environment and for the fabrics, too.
11. The sweater
This is how some people learn from their mistakes. They never want to allow it again, and they always managed to separate the clothes after that to avoid ruining another precious piece of clothing.
12. The early age
Some people have always done things the right way simply because they were taught to do it like that by their parents. It is true that habits are best made at an early age. This is how they remain for life.
13. The rush
We are quite certain that every small effort in life pays off eventually. We are convinced that people who do things like this are also very well-organized in every aspect of their lives.
14. The towels
This person took separating laundry to another level. As you can see, separating the towels from the rest of the laundry is something that not everyone does.
15. The woman
There are moments in life we never forget, and for some people, these moments are long periods. This person, for example, shared how she got her habit of separating everything.
16. The advice
Sometimes, giving a piece of advice is worth the effort, and this person’s advice is actually useful. As you can see, following these instructions can help a lot with doing laundry.
17. The habit
Here is yet another person who managed to keep a habit from their childhood, and we are happy to see that many kids were taught the responsibilities they would have as adults.
18. The period
Some people prefer to do laundry every few days. We also have such a period we always go by, and we think that it is a great way to handle this chore if you have a small amount of clothes.
19. The time
Here is a person who proves the thing most people over 40 believe. Yes, there are young people who never bother separating their clothes before washing them, and that is okay.
20. The laundry
Well, this is a post that some would agree with, but we beg to differ. Some clothes are very delicate and washing them all at once with the rest of the blacks and whites can be a huge problem.
21. The load
This is one post that sums up many individuals’ philosophies about doing laundry. It seems that people are keen on saving time more than anything else these days.
22. The clothes
Here is one post that makes perfect sense, and we agree with this person. Those who spend a lot of money on clothes need to keep them for as long as possible.
23. The reason
Some individuals have no particular reason to separate their laundry, and we guess this could lead to unexpected situations, not to mention it could ruin your clothes.
24. The children
Here is how one person described the way they reacted to seeing their kids trying to prepare their clothes for laundry, and it seems older generations cannot stand doing laundry all at once.
25. The generation
There are moments when we all must remember that not everyone has a laundry room or a washing machine at home, meaning that laundromats are the only solution for them, making separating laundry very hard.
26. The ex
This is a curious post, as it reveals one of the things that we guess could cause a stir in many relationships. The different ways in which two people in a couple do laundry can be something they would dispute about.
27. The process
Some people allow no room for compromise when it comes to doing laundry. This is why all their clothes are usually pristine and last a very long time.
28. The solution
There are apparently some ways in which a person could avoid the need to separate whites and blacks. It seems that all it takes for that to happen is to never wear white again.
29. The separation
Those who are pros in doing laundry not only separate the clothes by color, but they also make sure they separate different fabrics and proceed washing them in different temperatures.
30. The common sense
We guess that those who have yet to experience the unpleasant situation this post describes will eventually start using the separation system when they do laundry. Nobody wants blue pillowcases that were originally white.
31. The piles
Here is yet another special post by someone who found a really amusing way of describing what the laundry process means to them and how they proceed with it.
32. The method
This person shared how her mother feels about the way she does laundry. No person would be happy to see this after they tried to raise their kid in a different way, at least when it comes to laundry.
33. The rule
It seems that people under 40 do laundry the right way, despite what others might think. Sure enough, not all of them do it, but most try to separate their clothes.
34. The mix
Some users shared that they have never seen anyone do such a thing as not separating their laundry, and we think that it all depends on one’s private circle of friends.
35. The ironing
We are not entirely sure why people think it is weird when someone irons their clothes, but this is a common thing that most of us do on a daily basis.
36. The laundry machine
Unfortunately we all do and hopefully when I buy a house I will be able to separate it.
