We're all busy. We all have more exciting hobbies than doing laundry. So we all do some creative things to avoid the dreaded chore. Is that Febreze I smell all over the Jersey Shore?

Cosmopolitan came up with a list of things we do to avoid laundry, and some of them are hysterical simply because they are so true. So if you thought you were the only person in the world doing these things, you will be relieved to know you are not.

Have you ever rationalized your way out of it? Of course you have. It's bad for the environment, or you just didn't have time to pick up laundry detergent, or...well...anything that gets you out of it.

And who among us hasn't gotten a little self righteous? It's not just your laundry, right? Why doesn't anybody else do the laundry?

And this one surprised me. Are women using the "smell test" to see if clothes in a laundry pile are wearable? I thought that was strictly a guy thing, just like using a quick shot of Febreze, but maybe not.

It's unbelievable how creative we get when it comes to trying not to do a chore! You can get the complete list at cosmopolitan.com.
