    You see, every time my wife ask me to help with the laundry (once every 4-5 years) I make sure to screw things up just a bit so she don't bother me with it for another 4-5 years

    I just happen to be a *slight* bit of a perfectionist and happen to like the way I do it better. plus she is very much appreciative which is never a bad thing.

    I agree. You can use vinegar instead.

    Good link, thanks Ekdog. I use vinegar a lot for cleaning. Read that baking soda works as fabric softener as well, I just never feel I need it.

    I use cold water detergent and hang my bike stuff to dry. The front load washer spins out enough water that the polyester stuff on hangers dries in just a few hours and overnight for the wool stuff.

    Well I don't ever use FS for anything. I do put most of my active-wear in the dryer, but I hang my padded cycling shorts up to dry.

    Not according to many (most?) lycra garment care instructions. And my experience backs up those instructions that say drip dry -- I've dried a few bike shorts which then lost their elasticity.
