  • With 5 people in this house I end up with at least a load a day. Sometimes two. And on Monday I do up the sheets, blankets, table cloths, and things like that.

  • I wash once a week but I might increase to doing it twice a week because when the baby comes we will be washing his stuff seperate and thats gonna add an extra load or so

  • I have to do a load every damn day other wise I end up with needing to do 6-7 loads in one day to get rid of it all.

  • I must wash too much! There are 3 of us and I do a load atleast every other day. If I skip then I have to do two and I hate when it piles up...

  • I do 2 loads a day. I load of laundry and 1 load of sheets every day and then every other day I do rugs and twice a week I do blankets.

  • I do it about twice a week. Sometimes 3 times depending on how many times I worked that week. My husband does about 2 loads on weekends( at least he's supposed to). If I don't keep up with it , I'd probably end up doing 6 loads per week. My DH is 6'4 so his clothes take up a lot of room in the washer and dryer

  • I was a load of laundry everyday otherwise I'm spending a whole day doing laundy instead of just a little bit of time one day. But with 5 people in my house it adds up really quick.

  • Once a week. I don't have a washing machine so I use the facility next to my unit. It works for myself and DD
