It seems like I'm doing laundry everyday. I don't have a dryer and now that I can't dry the clothes outside, it's a never ending job.

How often do you do it?

I use to do a load or two every couple of days, but just recently switched to doing it once a week. It seems to not seem as never ending that way.

Every single day and several times a day. Without fail.

Up until last week, I had no dryer either so I know how that is. But I could still get up to 4 loads done per day if needed.

We do laundry once a week on Sundays. We do 4 loads each week: my clothes, his clothes, jeans/slacks, towels/whites. Sometimes we have a little more, sometimes a little less. If need be, we will do a load during the week, but I think we may have done that once in the past year.

I do one load per day on a rotating schedule... my clothes, kids clothes, dh's clothes, towels, bed linens, dh's clothes (he only has a few work clothes so I do them twice a week), then Sunday's we're generally too busy. Its never completely done but the schedule ensures everything gets done once a week and I don't have to stress about it.

I have 2 drying racks and do 2 loads a day. I don't line dry everything, but alot of stuff is line dried. I don't have room to hand sheets and dh's work clothes do better if they are dried a little. My dryer has several selections for tempurature and I do know that it has reduced my gas bill to dry according to size and fabric.

At least every other day. I usually do 2 or 3 loads on those days, sometimes more.

Every Wednesday. Except I did it all today since I was off and dh had to work, and the weather was just beautiful. It must have been 70 degrees so I hung it all outside.

On average, at least a couple of loads a day. All of the loads are either large or super sized loads. By the time we each change clothes 3 to 4 times a day(from Pj's to work/school clothes to work out clothes and on Wednesday into church clothes after the gym), shower(we wash the towels after each use) and do linens(sheets and blankets at least once a week) - we generate a lot of laundry on a daily basis. We use the dryer for 99.9% of the laundry.

There are only two of us here. We do one or two loads a week depending on if we are washing towel and bedding or not.

I don't really have a schedule. I just do it, when ever there is laundry to do. Doing laundry is not my problem....it is the ironing. lol

Every stinking day. Nine people, one in cloth diapers make alot of laundry. I have the kids rewear play clothes for 2 or 3 days and wear school jeans twice and dh and I do the same and there is still alot of laundry. ~sigh~ And I feel your pain about getting things dry. It takes jeans forever to dry on my rack.

I am with the rest of you, seems we wash clothes every day......
A little hint for getting levi's to dry faster. Hang them on a hanger with clothes pins (pin the back of the jeans to the hanger, leaving the front loose)....they dry a lot faster than they do hanging on a dryer rack.

I do 3 loads a week. It is just me though so I don't have as much to wash. I hang dry all of my clothes so I can't do everything on one day becuase I don't have enough space.

Between DH and I we do at least 2 loads a day. I have a rod above washer and dryer and hang all shirts, put sweats and shorts over the back of my kitchen chair. I use the dryer for underwear, jeans, sheets and towels in the winter.

I seem to always have laundry to do even though I try to wear clothes as much as possible before washing them (as does hubby).
