Hi, my name is Kate and I’m a university student studying for a masters. For my dissertation project I’m conducting research into laundry habits in the over 55 age category. I would be extremely grateful if you could spare a minute to fill in my survey. It would help me a lot and be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm not sponsored by anyone. I'm carrying out research for my dissertation into purchasing habits and what influences their decisions in the over 55 category. I'm sorry Berkshire wasn't on the list, I copied the counties over from a list online and must have missed one off. Thanks for your feedback though.
Also, I wonder why there isn't a reciprocal question about others doing the washing 'for' me as well as me doing it 'for' others. I have 2 adult children at home - we all do washing 'for' each other. In other words, when the laundry basket is full, someone puts a wash on.
Agree with TwitterQueen that possibility that in your mid-50s you might still have teenage DC at home, and would therefore be doing family laundry in much the same way as when a decade or more younger.
It sounds as if everyone over 55 is struggling with the complications of wrestling with weighty packets and tightly sealed bottles and complicated purchasing decisions......!
Yes, this is what I inferred from the questions.

Yup, that's us
Was the income supposed to be my own, or the household? I too wondered that - I put mine in the end, but most of these things that want to categorise you by income, like to categorise you by household income, so I might have got it wrong.
I sort my laundry, but by temperature and creasing, not colour...no option for that.
Yup, well temperature based on how 'dirty' or 'clean' the wash is - if it needs a quick swish through or a thorough, hotter, longer wash.
and finally.... There is not option for '4 or 5 times a week' in terms of how often you do a wash.
