Problem using bleach, need advice

My spouse is always getting mad at me for messing up clothes when I use bleach. Inevitably, some shirt or pants comes out with a large bleach spot or two. Not every time I wash with bleach, but often enough. I wait until the washer has been running with the clothes for about 5 min, then I use a small amount of bleach (1/4 cup) and pour it either diluted or undiluted into the bleach (ADD HERE) thing. I then flush this out several times and flush off any bleach that may have spilled. ((None does but I"m being very careful.))
I do this every time. I never pour bleach directly into the water with clothes.
One note, while I don't think this is the problem, I do clean the bathrooms with bleach. But this wouldn't explain everything.
Any suggestions?
THANKS EvE

Yes. I suggest you follow the colored clothes labels, which say something like "NO BLEACH"! And follow the bleach directions, which say something like "NOT FOR COLORS"!
The "(ADD HERE) thing" is a chute for adding bleach. However, as most people realize, chlorine-based bleach is for whites only. If you're committed to bleaching your colored clothes, use a color-safe, oxygen based-bleach.
Note: chlorine is a fine bleaching agent for whites, but has no true cleaning power, and has virtually no disinfecting properties, in the presence of the organic load typically found in laundry.
