QUIZ: Men, women and the laundry room

Sarah Gardner Apr 21, 2011

Clorox marketing exec Heidi Dorosin made a brief appearance in my Marketplace story on laundry detergents with fewer petrochemicals. A little off topic but it turns out Clorox has tons of data on the “his and hers” of clothes washing.

We put together this quiz with Clorox’s data to test out your assumptions on men, women and the laundry room. And if you have any genius insights into the “why’s,” post a comment.
