I do a load of whites once a week and colors once a week.I have decided if they are not in the hamper they will not get washed.I got tired of finding dirty clothes on the floor or other places after I had finished the load.
Coffee I wish I only had 2 loads a week. That'd be heaven. I usually do 2 loads every other day. Sometimes I'll push it longer though. I use to do laundry once a week but then there was always a horrendous amount to do. By keeping on top of it now it's much easier for me.
Everyday! There's only four us at home, now, that my two oldest kids left home and married. It used to be four loads a day. I dislike laundry, but it's gotta be done. I have a load of clothes washing, right now. I try to do a load first thing every morning.
With just me...well, and my two dogs...I wash...sometimes once a week....usually two loads. Sometimes three depending on what colors I have worn....wash whites, light colored, and dark colored. In summer I have more whites as I garden in white t-shirts and don't want them in with my sheets/towels. Then again this can vary depending on what the dogs have gotten into....they are kenneled at night so if I get the 'present' of a pukey blanket well then it becomes just like having kids...thus more wash to do..UGH!
I am on a real washing 'kick' now as I am doing rugs and blankets. Sort of my 'spring cleaning' thing.....I can just hear the "ka-ching ka-ching ka-ching" of the power meter going. I could choke when I get my next utility bill!
A load a day, although lately it's been 3 or 4 as I was way behind. 3 loads a week less then a year ago when I had 2 in cloth diapers. Expecting the amount to decrease significantly again now that my oldest isn't here, as about 50% of it was hers. Hard to tell yet, as I only got through the pile she left behind yesterday.
I empty the hampers on Wednesdays & Sundays. Wednesday's usually takes me two days to get it all done (3-4 loads). Sunday's I can get done in one day (1-3 loads). Whenever I have a free day is when I do the bedding and that's a hella lotta laundry with 1 queen bed, 2 full beds, and 2 twin beds
For some reason, I get the laundry done quicker when I'm able to hang it out to dry. Probably because I don't have to wait on the dryer, my lines can hold 2-3 loads at a time.
I do laundry too much!! LOL...At least one load a day..But I have a small portable washing machine, that doesn't fit that much clothing in it...so one normal load for most people is 3-4 loads for my little washing machine!
