i am doing 1 drum a day for 3 adults and a bbay and think it i sto much that is without bedding and nappies just wondering if this is about right like my ma says but i don't think i should need to do a drum a day

that sounds right for me, 1 load a day with the excepton of sat when i do the bedding too, so 9 loads in total/ week. that is me and DS.

I do all my laundry at the weekend - bedding, towels, whites, lights, brights and darks. So six loads in total per week for two adults and DS.

i would never get it all dry if i didit once a week lol just put another drum on but it isn't a full drum so only put it on a quick wash

I do a white one on Sat dry it then a dark one on Sunday - so all dry for Monday. Have enough spare towels and bedding to not have to wash them much in the winter - but will take a load to the laundrette later into the winter.

Two loads on average every day - 3 adults and two children. Some days I feel as if I'm morphing into Mrs Tiggywinkle. sad

I do one whites, one darks and bedding and towels eack week.
That's for me and DD.

Oh and it's split between the weekend and midweek, so it's easy to dry as I don't use a tumbler.

I do one or two a day and that's only for 2 adults and one 2 year old!! (who wears about 6 bibs a day as she is teething and drooly!)

MrsBadger Fri 24-Oct-08 15:44:49

I usually do two a day - one of clothes and one of 'other' - towels / linen / nappies / work clothes / kitchen cloths etc

it's less if we don't have people to stay

sounds normal to me

i do about 9 or 10 loads a week for 5 people, but i seperate the usual whites and coloured etc plus do a non bio wash for the kids as they have sensitive skin

that includes bedding & towels but no nappies

I do at least one wash a day - I have to wash all of DS1's bedding every day - so that takes up much of a load on it's own,

If I've got lazy and only done his bedding I often end up doing 3/4/5 washes in one day (like today grin)

Have 1 adult and 3 DS's - DS3 a todder so nothing lasts more than 1 day, DS1 and 2 manage to keep their normal clothes clean for 2 days - but it's rare that their school uniform is clean enough to wear a second day - especially when it's wet and muddy....

I do a wash a day.

2point4kids Fri 24-Oct-08 16:21:47

I do one or two loads a day. thats 2 adults and 2 children (baby and a toddler, so very messy)

NomDePlume Fri 24-Oct-08 16:25:14

2 adults
2 teenaged boys
1 grub magnet 6yo girl

My machine runs every day in the week and I generally do a couple of loads on a Fri (my day off, housework day) consisting of bedding (4x dbl beds & 1x k/s) and towels and another of normal laundry. I tend to do a couple of loads over the weekend too.

On average around 8/9 loads a week

2 adults
2 boys
2 girls

2-3 loads/day. The hampers are never empty either. Bedding on the 10, 20, 30 of the month regardless of the day of the week. (Otherwise I will fall desperately far behind.)

ohdearwhatamess Fri 24-Oct-08 16:40:52

1 or 2 loads every day. 2 adults and 2 young dcs plus dog.

ilove Fri 24-Oct-08 16:43:49

3 loads minimum a day...3 adults 3 children 1 dog

2 red loads a week, one dog load a week, two bedding two towels then the rest split between dark/white and the odd pastel load. About 24/25 loads a week. Siemens workhorse with a big drum!

9 loads, 3 people. dh can have 3 outfits a day! he goes thru towels like nobodys business.i do it all on a thursaday ready for cleaner to iron friday.

nannyL Fri 24-Oct-08 18:13:07

just me and i do 1 (mostly)or 2 (sometimese) loads a week

always do my bed (every couple of weeks or so) at 60, and all other clothes that need a wash go in with it too and none have shrunk yet....
every few weeks i have enough whites / lights to do a white wash (with diff detergent to keep them white wink) but other light stuff (not white) goes in with coloured stuff.
nothing as been shrunk / ruined / run (yet wink)

(at work i do 3 loads of kids stuff a week)

FiendishFairyFay Fri 24-Oct-08 18:37:48

At least one load every day, probably about 10 a week in total (today I've done 4). There's me, Dh, DD (3) and Ds (16 months)
