How many of us take the time to sort through the clothes before washing them. putting like colors together? How many times a week do you do the washing. I like to do mine on a Sunday, and i do sort them out by color.

If the colors will smudge, then definitely the clothes will be removed. Otherwise, I would just dump them all into my washing machine. I wash my clothes as soon as they are enough to fill a full load. :P

I don't sort them at all.I put all of them together and luckily, didn't have a problem till date.Only when I have a white shirt that needs to be washed I wash it separately.It's a hassle-free process .So,I usually wash my clothes thrice a week ,but I could be lazy at times.

Yes I always sort my clothes. I wash whites in hot water and colors in cold, so they must be sorted. I only wash when I am real low on clothing which is every 3 weeks. There was a time I had to wash every week, but I was determined to own enough clothes and underwear to go at least 2 weeks. I am up to 3 weeks without running out of underclothes.

My hubby is very picky about his clothes, even though they are mostly jeans and t-shirts, lol. I always sort by colors and whites. I normally do at least one load every other day, sometimes two, depending on the rugs and bedding. It is just the two of us, so I would hate to see how many loads I would do if we still had kids at home, lol.

I always sort my clothes when I do the laundry. I sort them by towels, sheets, wools/knits, colors, dress clothes, casual clothes and so forth. I do washing at least once a week every Saturday or Sunday afternoon. On occasion I will do a load during the week.

I do when I am doing laundry for the week, but during the week sometimes I just throw a load in the washer with the colors all together.

I wash them whenever the hamper gets full! I sort by color and type. Wash colored towels in one load, white socks and undies in another, work clothes,and so on. Although I will throw the occasional odd piece in a load if I need to.

I sort the whites, dark colors and lighter colors, I try to do a load of only red, just in case. But I just usually pull them out of the hamper, rather than make stacks.

i don't normally sort out the clothes by color unless they are new. i do wash the babies clothes alone with a different soap but the rest of ours i wash together. i do at least one load a day. some days a do a couple but with 5 of us i have to. plus i like to change bedding once a week so if i was to do it only once a week i would be doing it none stop from the time i got up till i went to bed.

I do laundry every single day:( I first wash the darks, then the whites and then the towels. If I am lucky I only have 3 loads, but some days it is more. If I waited to do all the wash at then end of the week, I would never be able to get it all done.

I sort the laundry and have a load of darks and whites everyday and then do my husbands work clothes on Friday nights. I can usually skip either saturday or sunday but not both. I can't stand the hamper to get over half full drives me crazy. I could go a month without doing laundry but I can't stand for it to pile up. I also wash for 4 people. 2 kids and my husband and me.
