hello guys most of us are quite busy in their own fields i am just curious do you still wash your own laundry or do you have someone do it for you? or maybe send it to those laundry houses? As for me i do our laundry with my family..it is a sort of bonding together with the help of a washing machine..hehehe and we usually do it during weekends and holidays.. how about you guys?

I used to have help when I was working full time in the Call Centre a year ago and my 2 year old was still a baby but now I do it myself, my 10 year old son and my husband sometimes join into the fun (laughs) with the help of machine of course!!

Yes, I do the laundry at times but most of the time its my husband who does it! He is a very industrious man, so while I'm cooking, he does the laundry. We have a very nice working relationship really and that is one secret to our happy marriage. He does not just sit even if he is the bigger bread winner and he does not mind doing the household chores together with my one and only son and hence we do not need maid anymore because at home we share in the chores and we are happy at that.

I do it myself. I don't know your family does laundry "together". I'm assuming that you're talking about getting the laundry together and folding the laundry afterwards? My son is 4, so he can't help too much with the folding, but he does help me put the clothes in the washer, put the soap in, switch the clothes to the dryer, and start up the dryer. I pretty much just do laundry when I feel like it or when I need something to be washed.

We have maid to do it every Wednesday and Friday weekly. We don't have much time to do it in our own, yet we expend PHP 500.00 a week for this.

i am not the one who wash my own laundry. i pay for doing it. my washer do laundry every month for me. i did laundry before but because i am too busy with my offline business and my studies, i don't have enough time to do the chores. much better if i pay a person to do it for me.

hi. i still live at my parents' house so they have hired help to do the household chores. but i know how to, i have been raised to know how to cook, clean, mend clothes, wash dishes, and wash clothes. i know someday, i will be doing it on my own....but until then, i will appreciate this blessing. good day

Back home (Phil) we do it on weekends,and it's true that it became a bonding for me and my sister and sisters-in-law---and thats hand wash.Now i am sure they do it the same day but thru washing machine and no more bonding. Here in our place,i start soaking the whites(the usual!) on wednesday afternoon.Then the whole day next day every dirty clothes get cleaned.

I don't do my own laundry. We have washing machine and we have another thing that not all people in US can have it. We have a servant. I live in a third world country. Labor is very cheap but not so smart due to their low education level. So, we have the privilege to have a servant. It is a common thing in this country and other third world countries. Since I have a servant, I don't do laundry, dishes, and house cleaning. Those are taken care by our servant.

of course I do my own laundry for who else is going to do it? I do not have servants so am on my own. lol. And its really expensive to take it to a dry cleaning place, and also is expensive at most laundrymats now days too. so I do my own in our apartment wash room with washing machines and dryers.

i do my own laundry. And sometimes i do my whole family laundry. We have definite labour in our family. Unluckily, i hate cooking. The only thing i can do is laundry and washing dishes after dinner. I am often jealous of my sister who is a good cooker. Using the same material, my dishes sell very bad. i remind one day even my pet dog ignore noodles i cooked. I was totally frustrated!!!! Since then i am responsible for some cleaning. What a sad story!

Dear Kaezy, Yes I also do laundry in the weekends only. I am not able to do it otherwise. Since my kids are not here with me, myself and my husband do the laundry together and dry them out. He helps me with these chores at home. As you say there is a togetherness when we do the job together. All the best
