So the facts are as follows. Husband always played for a Sunday league team. Has recently become the captain which involves such illustrious responsibilities as washing the team kit. Team kit involves twenty plus shirts, twenty plus pairs of shorts and forty plus socks. Live in a two bed semi with small garden. Now admittedly I am not called upon to wash the kit having refused with outrage at the situation. However, still very cross at my washing machine being clocked up with the horrible sweaty kit, it blighting my enjoyment of my back yard and then it hanging around the house. God knows what he thinks will happen in winter when it's too cold and wet to put washing out to dry. No dryer. Am I being unreasonable?

I presume your dhs stuff has been washed for him for the last ten years or whatever by former captains. This will happen again next year so you will reap the rewards in the future.

YANBU. Dp was captain of a football team and used to take cash from the subs to take it to a laundrette for them to wash. This was 10 yrs ago and Saturday mornings you couldn't move in there for all the local clubs picking up kits.

My husband washes the shirts for the kids he manages - he's very precious about how they're done so it doesn't create any extra work for me at all (I'm not allowed near the washing machine unless in emergencies anyway!). He would rather wash them all together than have parents do them simply because different detergents/tumble drying etc create problems with sponsor badges - if his badges go funny, then at least they'll all look the same Grin

As you don't have a dryer I get that it's a ballache but it's his ballache!
