I am onto my 4th load with another 1-2 to go. A bit more than usual due to a vomiting (now asleep!) child. Lucky we have a fine day (37 deg high) with a breeze so it will all dry in no time.

Oh and lucky I love washing too.  biggrin.gif

After 6 (!) loads on Sunday I am doing one load a day on weekdays, and extras on the weekend.  The weather in Sydney has been rubbish this summer, and we live in an apartment, so my dryer is still being used some days - ridiculous!  I'm jealous of your excellent drying weather OP.

Just one. A second if I feel like washing nappies.

Just one - I try to do a load every day because then I keep on top of things. I missed two days a few weeks back and ended up having to do six on the Saturday  ohmy.gif  - don't ask me how that math works

OK so I don't have kids.

Sorry to make you jealous but I might do one later --- but could probably hold off until tomorrow/thursday.
I tend to only do 3 loads a week...1 for sheets and towels, the other 2 are for clothes.

I used to do heaps more, so don't know what happened there, just became more efficient in wearing clothes etc I guess!

Three here.
One load of nappies. One load of kids clothes, socks and undies (on the intensive cycle with napisan) and one of my clothes and DH uniforms on the normal cycle as that stuff isn't too gross.

I do a load of nappies every day, two loads of clothes on Tuesday, one load clothes and towels on Thursdays and clothes and bed linens on Fridays. No washing on the weekends here.

I do 3 - 4 large loads every day. Always.

Today = zero (But washed last night and will again tomorrow night)

In a normal week I do 3 loads of clothes plus a towel load plus a sheets load. That's for me, DH and DD(3).

None. Everything gets chucked in together here. I did a load yesterday and then I will wait until the washing basket gets full again. I use these sheet things called "Colour Catcher" and they seem to help.

Saturdays are for sheets and towels.

Just two. Thank goodness for dryers and clothes horses. We have had constant rain and stormy weather for weeks!

On to my third today, probably another 3 to go and then a nappy wash.

That's what happens when you think "mmm. Not today." for 4 days.

#22 ladyantebellum

Posted 21 February 2012 - 12:16 PM

Two today. Have done a load of the kids clothes and need to do one of towels.
I do at least one a day.

I am similar but have a full load every day. Everything goes in together including nappies. It's all put on the line in the morning and if it's a fine day I bring it inside and put it away that afternoon.

None today biggrin.gif

But I did get two loads done yesterday after work.

Tomorrow is nappy wash day.
