my try:

Çamaşırlarımı ellerimle yıkarım.

 

 

Would it be a bit better with kendi? Kendi is like ´own´.

 

Çamaşırlarımı kendi ellerimle yıkarım.

I don´t agree. I don´t think its better cos el-ler-im-le = with my hands 

kendi ellerimle - with my own hands. There is no need to emphasize.Offcourse if context requires than it can be emphasized. 

mesela -  laundry machine is broken and you say to someone to find someone to fix it. Anyway, that person didn´t do this, so you had to wash them with your hands. And the person who should had found person to fix see the clothes and asks how did you washed them in with anger you answer with my OWN hands!

I see no problem with this sentence at least grammaticaly.

I don´t know the answer but that was what was asked to be translated, "with my own hands" rather than "with my hands". My guess is both are fine.

First, my sentence was starting with : Çamaşır makinesi yokken, ...

 

so I think it is logical to say :

 

Çamaşırlarımı kendi ellerimle yıkarım.

 

Anyway, teşekür ederim Wink
