  • When I lived in an apartment, I did laundry as needed. I had a full size washer and dryer in my apartment.

  • I'm sorry, but what does living in an apartment have to do with anything? =x

  • I usually do a load per day, so that I never had a full day's worth of work. It's especially helpful in case some other neighbor ties up the laundry all day, I'm not desperate to get in there.

  • We have 20 machines in the laundry room of the apartment so I would do the laundry once a week and be done in 2 hours. Some of the stains on my kids shirts won't come off. What do you do with those stains?

  • Once a week. I spray spray-n-wash on anything with stains or I hand wash things that are really bad and can't wait to be washed.

  • I have to use a laundro-mat as there are no washer/dryer hook-ups in my apartment. Perhaps she meant those who live in an apartment and have to use a laundro-mat? we do wash about once a week unless there are throw-up items and then we do those right away (well, that day at least). We spray Shout on the stains and it seems to help even if it's a stain from the day after we did laundry. We also use bleach for colors (not on the baby's clothes!) and arm and hammer detergent with baking soda

  • Thanks! I'll get a spray and wash or Shout for the stains and hand wash clothes that had been stained with tomato sauce or those that stays on once it dried up. Thanks again!!!
