  • Ummm Idk I guess it depends on the person.

    Monday's & Thursday's are the only day I do wash... Monday its clothes & Thursday its household items... i refuse to mess with it any other day

  • What else are you doing during the day? If your sitting on your butt all day, then yes. If your doing other things like taking care of the kids etc. Or if you only do the wash one day a week, then no.
    In our home, Monday is laundry day, so yeah it gets piled up, but I don't really worry about it. Till Monday that is.

  • Only according to your standards in your household.

    In our household it’s done every 3rd day.

  • Who'd even know? Do it when you need to. I do mine every other day cuz I don't wanna run out of underwear and towels :-)

    Its not that much work for me. The machines do 90% of the work. I just forget about it and its tedious

  • For me, no. I have 3 kids under 2 1/2 and live in an upstair apartment and have to walk to the laundrymat to do laundry. needless to say it doesnt get done as much as i'd like. now if i had a washer and dryer in my house it would be done at least once a day

  • Depends on the person really

  • Well i seem to always be doing never i am a stay at home mom..i have ton's of things to do around the house..which i try to get done while the kids are at school..there are days i just don't get to it or it sits all day until late evening and i do it then after showers/bath's ect..i think every mom needs a laundry break from time to it's okay to skip a day or let them pile up for a day..Every mommy needs to let things go for a minute..just don't let your house become over come by
