I am just wondering how many times a week you do laundry.. Reason why i ask is because i seem to be doing it every day and it's no break. Though i do try and do it every 3 days so i am not wasting water and i am not always up and down the stairs putting it in and drying it...

We usually do at least one load a day, if my dad has not brought his over to us to do, we do his to save him from having to spend so much at the laundry mat, and we have a twelve year old girl, that makes for a lot of laundry for us, but we try to make the most of each load, so we do no waste water. Just set your machine on a smaller load, if it is not full.

That's very nice of you on helping your dad with no having to spend more money than he should mainly on washing. The laundry mats can cost alot mainly just to wash and to dry them.. I know I had to go to them when i lived in my old home.. Thanks for the reply.

Yes i agree my son changes his cloths alot and so do i.. I don't like wearing cloths that's going to make me sweat so i tend to put on lighter cloths threw out the day i have to do the same with my son cause he tends to wear heavier clothing for some reason. Thank you for replying

I wash our clothes daily or every other day. This is because we do it by ourselves. We dont take them to laundry shops. We wash them using our hands and brush. I know this isnt the way in the US but in the Philippines, we are very much used to this method.

I do the laundry every single day! It is the one thing that I hate doing, but just to keep it up, I have to do it every day. I usually have 2 to 3 loads a day. Then on the weekends I try to do all the bedsheets too.

Kinda like me every day but i don't feel like doing them alot so i will tend to wait a day or two and do a few loads when i have nothing better to do or throw them in while i am doing other chores. thank you for the reply.

i do them according to how much stuff needs to be washed...so it's more or less any day in the week... ..usually it is at weekends on sundays when ironing can get done as well but sometimes there are ''emergency'' washes in the week

My wife and I don't have a lot of laundry to do normally, so we usually wait to do laundry for every two weeks. It's harder cause we don't have a washer/dryer in our unit, and our apartment complex doesn't have a station either. We have to gather up all of our clothes and go to an outside place, so it works out for us to wait until every two weeks to just do all of our laundry.

I can understand that as long as it's just you two and living with out a washer i'm sure things are harder, not to mention it piles up even more. Thanks for the reply.
