l Eight-nine percent of women said they are primarily responsible for doing the laundry in households across the U.S. according to a survey by GE Harmony. And while 72% believe laundry should be a shared chore, nearly 10% of men have little or no laundry knowledge. A quarter of the women said their husband/partner has frequently ruined clothing and another 23% said the husband/partner has never done laundry. The study also found women, on average, are 12% more likely to follow preventative and maintenance procedures than men. Equally, 43% of women and 47% of men do not know when to use a powder or liquid detergent.
