Doing the laundry is not a huge issue with me. I do it, because it needs to be done. End of story. I don't labor over it. I just do it, most of the time. There's a part of me that covets every time I hear the commercial where Kelly Ripa says that she can do an entire load of laundry in 36 minutes. It takes me 2 hours. Actually, I do the laundry on Mondays and Thursdays, only. I wash all of our clothes and towels on those days. I wash all of our sheets on Tuesdays. Now that Avery is sleeping on the top bunk, I'm washing 3 sets of sheets, instead of the usual 2. Changing the sheets on a bunk bed is NOT fun. In fact, it's downright hard. I have to get Avery to climb up to the top bunk and pull the fitted sheet to the far corner. I don't like changing the sheets. Can you tell today was when I did them?
Now that Presley is eating solid food, I'm doing more of her laundry. We wash a lot of bibs. And, we use ALOT of Shout.
I'm still making my own laundry detergent. It works, along with color bleach for the kids' clothes. I use Gain Lavender scented detergent for our towels and sheets b/c I love the way it smells.
So, I'm wondering...how often do you do laundry? Everyday? When you run out of clean clothes? Now's the time to air it...
