Probably two,and I also do hand-washing of my smalls/delicates!! When I had my son home,it was more likely to be 3 OR 4,or even more!! I always used cold water in my machine,and am lucky that I have good enough weather to dry out on the line 98% of the time!
I know it sounds a lot... but like I said, the machine is a very small front loader and I do the sheets at least once a week, if not every 5 or 6 days (cat hair you know), and we have his and her bathrooms, so extra towels and bath mats that I like to do regularly. Just a bit of clean freak, I guess, and washing is one chore I actually enjoy.
Too much! It seems like I'm always doing washing. I think I do around 5-6 loads, most of those being clothes and 1 load for towels, tea towels and dishcloths. Every 2nd week I do the sheets. This is for 5 people.
I'm thinking between two and four loads depending. On a light laundry week my wife and I may only do one dark load and one light load, on a heavy we will our two regular loads, plus our bedding and towels and a load of animal blankets.
I have four children, each filthier than the last. We do a load a day, sometimes more. One day I'll have to take up a time consuming hobby (like watching paint dry) to fill the tedious hours in a day that I used to spend washing. (Maybe I'll just read more books and drink more wine).
I often do my washing once a week - that way, everything is in order by the end of the week and I don't ever have to worry about running out of clothes for uni/placement :-) Plus, it helps when you can recycle certain clothes at least 3-4 times without it needing a wash.
As I now live alone I only do about two washloads a week. The majority of my clothes are made of fairly light material and can easily be handwashed.
I machine wash towels and bedding weekly. I wait until I have a load of dark heavy clothes, ie several pairs of jeans, and then machine wash them - perhaps fortnightly.
I am only washing for me (maybe a few things of my great grandson's) which I put in with my clothes. So I do one load of dark clothes and one load of light colored clothes per week. Thanks for asking this question...
Two humans, a dog and 12 chooks in my family. The chooks dont create much washing. ;-)
My husband washes his own clothes but I do everything else. Probably 5 loads a week unless we have had visitors then there will be an extra load or two with king size sheets, towels, tablecloths and napkins.
I have now got it down to 5 days a week, at least one load...but! some of those days 2-3, .
I have to change my clothes twice a day, and they have to be washed.Plus my son never uses his towel again after a shower, he likes a new one every time...Also I have to change his bed as he sweats in summer, so yes I do a LOT of washing.I'm use to it.
A guess now, it would be maybe 10 loads a week.(I just have to have clean linen and clothes).
I can not wear the same thing more than once, without it being washed.
