I wash 2 loads of laundry everyday..I have only 3 in our family...but I do small loads, for we have a well..and I don't like to put demands on it...

I like to hang out in the summer too..I am looking for a new set up for this season. I love drying tshirts out there..they come in like they have been ironed..I love a crisp shirt and great smells..ha ha

Hugs, Janet

good afternoon all, around here wash gets done everyday. Depending on what needs to be done, the weather ( I like to have clothes hung out) and time.
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

Wash gets done every day here for our family of 5. My 15 yr DS starts a load before he leaves for school and I continue it a few more times during the day if it isn't raining. We line dry everything. I try to sort and only do full loads but have no regular days for anything. Just go with the flow and get it done. All 3 children know if they want it washed, bring it down!!!!

There are 4 of us, in summer I wash 1 load of clothes every 2 days, the boys both have school uniforms (all do here) so it is only 1 set of clothes per day each. In winter clothes are bulkier so I do 1 clothes wash per day.
I wash the towels twice a week no set day, and I save coloured clothes like white to the end of the week when I at least have half a load. Sheets usually on a monday, no reason just easier.
So I guess in winter 2 loads every 2 days, 1 load every 2 days. Summer 1 load per day.
Of ourse there are the odd bits, rags, etc that go in whenever.
I have an 8kilo washing machine, fairly big and I always line dry.

I do 4 loads per week...whites, darks, towels and sheets, and whatevers (rugs, couch throw, etc.
I hate ironing so do less than none

We aren't allowed clothes lines so I can only line dry personals on my porch..anything heavier would take a week to dry..even here in Fla...

easier laundry

I have instilled a basket system for laundry. I cannot have a washer and dryer where i live, so need to go to laundry mat every week. But, to save time, i use a white basket for white clothes, green for dh's clothes, blue for darks, and red (found years ago) for bright clothes. Using this system has helped my dd learn how to sort by color, and has everyone involved (only 3 of us) in sorting their own laundry. When they change their clothes, they put them in the correct basket. Then on laundry day, it is all sorted for me and i just have to load in car and go do my wash. This has made it much easier on me.

If I do it on a weekly basis I do about 3 loads. If I go 1 1/2 to 2 weeks then of course I have more like 4 - 5 loads. We have 3 in our family.

I do mine once a week. Keep in mind that I live in a 5th wheel during school and only have to worry about laundry for myself. I have to keep up since I don't have the space. Also, my school schedule keeps me busy during the week. Saturdays are my laundry day.

When I was a SAHM, I did laundry everyday!

Too Much Laundry

I have a family of three and we each do 1-2 loads a week.

My kids have been doing their own laundry since the age of 8. I taught them how to sort, wash and fold their own laundry. I observed how they did it until I was comfortable that they weren't doing any damage. My husband also does his own laundry [and I am a stay at home].

No one should have so many clothes that it's overwhelming to do your own wash. If they do then it's time to pare down and make a drop at the Goodwill. 7 different, complete outfits that are interchangable are MORE than enough for each person.

Each person gets 1 towel a week and washes it themselves. 2 is the maximum.
