Hi Friend I am in university, and usually I give my clothes to our laundry man, they are really cheap as charging per kg, and in one week I even dont have one Kg of clothes, so its easy for me to give it to them but some time I use washing machine if I have mood to wash and dry myself. Have a nice day...:)

I don't have a job now but I am just waiting for the 22nd of this month to start in a previous company that I have worked with. Normally if I have a work then I do the laundry just once a week. I use the washing machine ofcourse because it will be tons of clothes that I wore within the week with my corporate attires and just clothes when I am inside the house. But from the past two weeks until now. I wash my clothes with my hands and do it every other day. So much to waste water. Hhehehehehe. Thank you for this practical discussion you have posted. Have a great weekend.

Thank you dear for that one. Yes I am diligent to wash clothes and make it very clean. I was suffering from OC before but I was not yet diagnosed for that. I just felt I am having that kind of condition before. My hands really get tired of doing it especially a few hours ago I did the washing of clothes myself.

Yes, I use it every time I wash my clothes, I simply do not have the time to hand wash stuff, unless it is really fragile or something. So I hand wash silk pieces and cashmere only, but most of my stuff are not silk or cashmere.

I don't have much time to do household chores so I needed the washing machine to get my work easier and faster. I always schedule my laundry to save electricity and water. I keep clothes in the laundry bin and when I am off, I can do my washing but my technique is that I don't use the washing machine for 1st and 2nd rinsing to save electricity, I do it manually and when I am finished and ready to pour the fabric softener, that is the time I get back to the washing machine before user the dryer.

Hi. whitestich02. Yes, we usually wash our clothes by the washing machine. If we have some clothes that has to be washed immediately, then we will hand wash them all. This is only when my husband is unable to make it to the laundromat.

Yes I use a washing machine when I wash my clothes. I have in the past washed something in the sink because the washing machine was broken or in use, I forget which! lmao. I think it's much easier to use a washing machine, though it's not very good for the environment admittedly.

I love using a washing machine. Years ago my washer broke and I had to wash all my clothes by hand... and there were A LOT of clothes to be washed. I laid everything out to drip dry too because I also had a broken dryer! I hate washing and drying clothes the old fashioned way. But, I'm glad that I know how to do it.

I live in an apartment building and I have the washing and drying machines right around the corner. It costs too much money to dry the clothes, so I usually wash and dry some of my belongings in my apartment. I don't have time to spend washing and drying either. Thus, like you, I hand wash my clothes.

It depends on the clothes. I usually have more then just the clothes, and I sort them for dark together and colored together unless I have hand washed that I wash separately by hand. It should not depend on the number of clothes, but what the directions say. I do know that if you have new clothes, it is best to hand wash them to see if they will run. So read the label and do the suggestions.

We often use washing machine when doing the laundry. It's because our helper can't just wash as many clothes because there are at least 4 people in the house and you can just imagine how many clothes would she be washing. But when it comes to my son's school uniform, it needs to hand washed.

Yes i use washing machine to wash our clothes especially if there are lots of clothes to wash. But it was only a pieces then i will not use the machine i also hand wash. The machine was a big help to us all family to lessen our effort and you know the convenient washing can do. And tell the truth right at this time i had my delivery of washing machine then right after it has arrived i wash all the dirty clothes here.
