    He doesn’t seem the type and by all accounts rarely did laundry anyway.

    How did it work? Was there maids? I don’t think there were sanitation droids on board before Krytes. I mean can you honestly imagine Listy sat there writing out a laundry list?

    I can’t

    Clean is a relative term. I usually just wear whatever has the least curry stains on it.

    And why 7 socks? Sure maybe he lost one, or found a lost one and needed it clean.

    I guess i just answered my own question.

    What is a laundry list even? I have never had a laundry list. I just put dirty clothes in a hamper then put them in the wash. Why make a list. Suspicious

    Trust me.... If you leave your laundry to strangers doing 100 more you would like the list

    I dunno. He doesn't seem the type to pay much attention to fabric care etc.

    7 is so one can be lost in the dryer wormhole and still have 3 pairs, or if wormhole produces a sock he has 4 pairs.

    I just put them in the basket and the next day they are clean. It's magic.

    And how big does a laundry list need to be to be able to line a basket that a cat is going to sleep in?

    Well the real answer to "Why did Lister even have a laundry list ?" is that the list was the only way that joke would work in the script. If there was no list there would not have been the joke, :-)
