can laundry room share the venting system from the adjacent bath?

Hi,
I want to install an exhaust fan in my laundry room which is adjacent to a full bath. There is currently an exhaust fan in the bathroom that is directly vented to the exterior of the house. My question is: can I use the existing vents/ducts from the bath to move air out of the laundry room or do I need to install a new duct for the laundry room and vent this to the outside in a separate exit. By the way, the dryer in the laundry room is also vented to the outside. Could I possibly use the vents from the dryer as well as the bathroom's duct system. I wash a lot of clothes by hand and sometimes line dry them in the laundry room hence, the need for an exhaust fan to rid the air of humidity.
Thanks!

Dont put then together. Each one has to vent outside on its own vebnt pipe.
Also think about where will you get the air for the new exhaust fan . Just a 400 cfm fan will pull a ton of your AC right out of the home.
