It seems like all I do is laundry. Daily. If I manage to not have laundry one day, then I have plenty to fold from previous days. We only have the two of us and the dogs. I can't imagine what its going to be like with kids. Am I doing something wrong? :o Tell me about the laundry situation at your house.
How many people are in your family?
Do you have pets?
Four large house dogs, plus I'm made to babysit my brother's extra-extra large dog three days a week. And livestock, which are not pets but contribute to the laundry for sure.
How many loads do you do a week/day?
*With all the outside chores I do, I could get away with doing a load every other day. *maybe every two days.
But when it's raining two to four inches of rain at a time :rolleyes: I get mud splashed all over me. I also use 'dog towels' and on a very bad day, I may do two loads of those a day. When it's more dry out I can get away with doing one load of those towels a week. My yard for the past week looks like there are small ponds all over it :/ Honestly, everything is drinking out of ponds in my yard and in the field. I haven't had to fill any water buckets. My brother's canoe is completely filled with rain water. Convenient, huh? :D
That said, I'm not sure why you have so much laundry because if it weren't for the chores and getting all mucked up while doing them, I probably could do one or two a week. Are you absolutely positive that you don't like doing laundry? :p **
What type of washer and/or dryer do you have?
The dryer is an Amana, the washer is a whirlpool.
What (if anything) has helped you cut back the number of loads?
**Consolidating loads. Consolidating normal clothes is easy. But it's hard sometimes to consolidate because 'chore clothes' get all mucked up and smelly. :blush: And if they're wet from the rain, you need to do something with them or they'll mold.
When it's raining buckets, I need to wash the dog towels, or it'll be a big mess. I've had to throw them in twice in a day a few times because it was just that wet out.
But you don't have all those problems do you? :p Why are you doing so much laundry? **
