Mine is on Saturdays and i'm the one who is in charge. I know others would do it on random days and on the wash-your-own clothes basis especially if the kids are all grown up. You think it's energy saving? Well i'll be glad if someone will do it for me but i'd rather do it myself and on a certain day.

Both my kids are still at an age where they frequently wet their beds or get food or dirt all over their clothes, and my partner changes his clothes for work every day, so I tend to do a wash every other day. If I only did it once or twice a week then I'd never be able to keep up with it. We don't have a dryer, all our washing has to be air-dried indoors or outside so it can take a while.

I hate stain...lol i'm not an expert when it comes to stain removing. air-drying or sun-drying is cool, i think it is really the basic and in my opinion, the clothes smell better thanks for sharing marianne!

hi umadper! how is that? do they do it in your own home? here in the Philippines we can hire a laundrywoman or we can deliver out clothes in a laundry shop.

I'm the one who does all the washing in my house. Mainly because I brought new washer and dryer and don't want to many people handling the machines. I usually wash clothes twice a week. On Wednesdays I wash the colored clothes and towels. Then on Saturdays I wash whites and the sheets. Once every two months I wash the comforters on Saturday.

Hi esrsanmiguel ..I also have a fixed wash day every week . It will be tired and exhausting if i decide to wash my clothes daily . Instead of doing that I prefer to wash those clothes in a holiday night, before sleeping. Well , the floor is washed by my room-mate..I am only talking about my clothes .I usually wash my clothes on a Saturday night, or Sunday night. The reason I chose night is that after washing clothes, I will be exhausted and tired . So, I can have a good sleep which will be great . Happy mylotting and have a nice day !

We usually wash on Wednesday's or Saturday's. I just washed clothes last night, so Saturday. My husband and I are on third shift so I wash clothes at night, sometimes after midnight so technically the next day. I wash mine and my husband's clothes.

hi there, usually i will be doing my/our laundry at saturdays or fridays. its the most convenient time for me and i am also the one who's in charge since its just me & my husband. but sometimes i also do it in other days like monday or tuesday. because sometimes we do have water interruption. like you i will alos be glad if someone will do it for me or atleast help me, but sometimes its still better to do it ourselves to get the best result that we wanted.

My wash day is either saturday or sunday. When I'm free on saturdays then I do the laundry on that day. However, there are times when I have to go to a meeting on saturdays so I have no other choice but to wash clothes on sundays. During holidays I also do some laundry but not as much as the ones I do on weekends.

We are a family of four so if I waited till one day to do laundry I would have way too much to do!! I just do it every few days or every other day, whenever there is a load to do =)

i have no certain day of washing clothes. i do wash clothes when i feel like it,sometimes i do it MWF or at times 2 days a week,well it really depends on my mood sometimes.but i really do want is to have someone over to help me with these chores. i feel alone sometimes for being left alone with my niece while doing household chores here.sometimes i feel like i'm just a maid more than being their child! too sad for me,i really don't have a choice! that's why i keep on being busy to forget things which makes me sad!

We do our clothes every Wednesday and Saturday so the load will not be that many and we have lesser time to finish it. :) Especially now that our washing machine's dryer is broken and we don't have any helpers to do it for us. :) Here at home, we try to wash all clothes that are in the laundry bin, even if its not mine I need to wash it still.
