Do any of you do all your laundry in one day? i find i just dont have time to do all of my laundry in one day, i just have to much. unless of course i am givin the whole day to get it done. maybe is because i only start it around eleven and then have to go to work at five. what is your laundry return do you do it in one day or two? how long does it take you?

I used to do all of my laundry on one day and it is hard to get it all done. Now I do a few loads through the week and a few on the weekend. Maybe you could try doing specific loads on a particular day of the week every week. Like sheets and towels on Mondays, underwear on Wednesdays, coloured clothes on Fridays and white clothes on Saturday. Something that works for you to lighten your load and then it wont feel as though you have so much to do. I've also stopped using my dryer as much as it was costing us a fortune on electricity. Now I only use it twice per week for the underwear and some kids clothes. The rest in hund on the washing line, then folded and put away as soon as it is dry. Otherwise I would never get it done.

Well since it is only me I do laundry once a week on Saturday morning. this is the time I do all my household chores. That way I still have the afternoon and evening free as well as all day on Sunday. I find it is easy to do it all at once while I am already in the home chores mode. Than try to do smaller loads during the week, I end up forgetting I have a load in there and then they usually smell musty or are all wrinkled from sitting in the dryer

I used to do it all in one lump - usually on Sundays, but now days I just do it as it comes; usually in smaller loads. So, I probably do a load every other day. This way, I don't have to spend all Sunday doing laundry.It saves time for me!

yeah that seems like i am doing these days othwise it just adds up and i have so much to do and cant get it done in one day. my laundry day seems to be tuesdays latly cause my mom using the machine on the weekend and theres no way i would be able to even get a load in so i have to wait until the week to get my laundry done. but i gues as long as it gets done.

When my kids were still here (I have 4, all grown now) I think I did a load of laundry every day. At least it seemed like I was doing laundry every day and was never caught up. Now that it's just my husband and me I do a load every two days and get it all done and out of the way.

I have a maid who does laundry for me. So, I don't have to worry too much about laundry. I only washes my undergarments. I feel embarassed to make my servent wash my undergarments. I used to give it to her at first, then I changed later. My maid wahes the clothes once in two days. I have to get her the soap powder. I wash my undergarments once in a week.

Hi, swadey. I do it about once a week or once per two weeks. I could not do it every day or more often because i have a old washing machine, and it consume so much time to finish washing and of course it costs so much electricity. So, normally i do it when it's time for me to wash. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.
