Person A forgets to empty pockets of his/her jeans before laundry day. Person B forgets to check pockets of clothes before washing them. Item C in Person A's pockets is ruined. Who's at fault?

A few more details:
Person A does the laundry 75% of the time and is able to catch Item C because he/she knows it's there. (Person B never leaves anything in his/her pockets.)
Person B has caught Item C in Person A's pockets several times previously, but not this time. Person B does not tell Person A that Item C was left in the pockets previously.
So who's at fault?
