Tell me how you do your laundry. DO you do it every day. OR once a week. I am debating how it should be done.

Right now I do this.
Sunday wash whites
Monday wash light and brights
Tuesday wash darks
Wednesday wash jeans
Thursday wash slacks
Friday wash towels
Saturday wash sheets

  • Once a week in the winter... two-three times a week in the summer because my fiances work clothes are GROSS from sweat, oil and dirt(he works in the +100 degree heat) so he usually leaves them at the yard and brings them home every few days....soooooo gross lol.

  • I just do a load a day. I have one of those 3 basket hampers in my laundry room and whatever part is full that is the part I do. We put things into the basket based on if it's color, whites, towels, etc. So everything is shorted as it goes into the laundry room I just do whatever needs to be done each day. What needs to be done is based on which section of the hamper is the fullest.

  • I do at least one load everyday. My husband works with semis and is a mess everyday. If I leave the was it will get to six or seven loads by the end of the week. I don't do the sorting thing. Most of my clothes are not white (require bleach) anyway. I just treat stains as I see them.

  • In my gaurage I have 7 of those 5 gallon buckets. I have paper taped on the buckets that tells me what goes in the buckets and what day it gets washed on. So my laundry dont get missed up.
