... what do you do with adjustable waistbands when you put the garment in the wash? Do you:
A. leave the waistband adjusted, with the button through one of the buttonholes in the elastic
B. return the waistband to the neutral position by releasing the button from the buttonhole.

I leave it in the adjusted position. No way am I faffing about with waistbandsgrin

Leave it where it is. It only ever gets moved if DS gets fatter/thinner, it's far too much of a faff otherwise.

Oh god leave it where it is? Why create more work for yourself!! I would never remember where it was set either and haven't the patience to fiddle about until I got it right. Very much doubt my dds would stand patiently either, they're like dressing cats at the best of times!

Where it is.
Have far too much laundry to worry about such things

Leave it.

I only quite recently discovered what you're supposed to do with adjustable waistbands. blush

Leave it of course. Barely have time to remove the child from the trousers never mind faffing around with waistbands.

Leave it - would never have occurred to me to undo it!

You have all convinced me I'm a freak - all this time, I have been undoing the buttons like a crazy mad foo!
