How often do you do laundry?

Everyday? If so how many loads?

Only on the weekends?

Does the left sock monster live in your dryer too?

Have you made a deal with DH/SO that if he does the laundry that you do the dishes? Did DH/SO turn your whites into pink to get out of forever doing laundry? (mine did, lol!)

I do laundry atleast 3 times a week!  Usually if I keep up on it only 1/2 loads at a time.  I have no idea where those darn socks go but my cat also takes off with socks so we are constatly buying new ones!!  DH lives and works out of state so it's all me all the time!

My DH usually does the laundry, he probably does a load everyday.  We never really discussed it, it has just always been that way since we got married.  It has been a long time since we have lost a sock, probably since the last time I did a load, lol!  I seem to make more of the laundry mistakes than he does.

i have to do laundry everyday to keep up our washer is stupid and it takes about 2 hours to wash about five things, its real tiny and Italian so i have no idea what its doing. then i have to line dry everything. i hate doing laundry but its gotta be done. i do about two loads a day. Husband doesn't go near there unless i am having a terrible day and cant get to it. He is pretty good at chores so i dont have to worry about him doing something crazy.

We are a family of 7, laundry was a daily thing in our house, sometimes 2 or 3 loads a day until I went through everyones clothes and just gave everyone ten outfits and placed each (jean and shirt) on a hanger together. That way there is no tossing clothes around looking for an outfit, and clean clothes end up on the floor. Now the kids just reach in the closet, grab a outfit. As far as socks, they will go in a mesh bag and get washed in it. That way there is no losing socks and no trying to figure out who's is who's. I now do about 4 loads a week. (towels, whites, and two colors)

I am never done with laundry.I try to get one or two loads done a day, but it doesn't always work. Some how our family of three can go through 8 loads of laundry in a week. DH is allowed to do the laundry, but not fold it. He's too messy for that!

I do laundry twice a week. One day it's 9 loads, due to bedding and towels and the other day is 5 loads. My DH only does laundry when he has gone 4wheeling and has covered himself in mud. I refuse to do those clothes. Although he does know how to do laundry.
