To make laundry ridiculously simple, start by asking your spouse to take on just a few regular laundry chores, such as stripping the beds to wash the sheets every Saturday morning or throwing in a load of towels once or twice a week. From there, it's a short learning curve to collecting the hampers from everyone's bedroom and -- yes -- even matching up the socks once they come out of the dryer. And if you're worried about your delicate or hand washable stuff going in with his oldest, dirtiest jeans, you can always sort it into a different pile.
