To generate enough laundry to require 1 or 2 BIG washer loads every 3-4 days?

We're not clothes-horses, we don't have day jobs, we rarely ever go anywhere. It ain't like we're changing clothes twice a day or anything.

I suppose it's possible with 2 people. Clothes add up quickly even just changing once a day.
I'm by myself and I do 3 loads a week.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

When I was living alone I did two loads a week. A load of towels with jeans and a load of everything else.

My daughter (age 17) moved in and washes two or three things at a time and kills the hot water during showers.

And now my forks are going missing.



Not minority enough!

I have enough t-shirts, underwear, and sox to last 2 weeks, changing them daily. Every other Sunday, I make a reservation for the laundry machines. Smile My wife does laundry like lyman's wife.

Every 14 days or so. I have 15 pair of underwear, and about that number of socks.

My wife farms, I fix appliances. Lots of dirty work clothes. That and with me going back to the county commission, I have multiple meetings the first few weeks of the month that require my coming home and changing into slacks and a nice shirt. That will increase after the first of the year when I will have multiple committees to attend as well as two commission meetings a month.
Add in my EMS work uniforms and my jujitsu gis and it adds up to two days a week of washing and folding here for two 60+ year olds

I generally do 1 load a week. Sometimes I stretch it to 1 load every 2 weeks, but I have my specific pants I prefer to wear for work. Once every so often I will do "the dog's laundry" in which I will end up doing 2 loads in one week.

I sweats freely, and work outside in a very dusty environment. I do a load of wash in our pathetic little half pint front load washer every night. The clothes I wore that day, and the towel I used after my shower that night. Two days clothing and towel overload the dinky washer.

Besides the quantity of clothing, I think it's also about the type, fabric thickness, and size. I usually do a load of my laundry every 2-3 weeks, but my husband does his at least once a week.

4 Laundry classes here:

Sheets/Bed Linens mostly because all the linens get changed on Monday and that's a good-sized load by itself.

Towels (no softener) - warm wash, cold rinse.

Jeans/Heavily soiled work clothes. Hot/Warm

Everything else. Hot/Warm

And if the jeans aren't too bad, they go in with everything else.
