Homeschool Memoirs #25: How Many Loads?


This question was posted at a Large Family Homeschooling fourm, and I thought it would be fun as one of the memoirs.

Question: Watching the Duggars, and other mega families [our family of 11 is small in comparison!] I was astounded at how many loads of washing. Do all large families do 7 loads a day and more, as I was thinking it sounds a little OTT?

So share all about your laundry. It’s on very rare occasion that it’s suitable to air dirty laundry. Ha!

Well, I, by no means, have a large family. We just consist 4 in our little family, but we always seem to have lots of laundry. :O LOL A lot for me anyways....I hate doing laundry!! It's a necessity though. *sigh* I would *guess* we do maybe 5 loads of clothing and 2 loads of cloth diapers a week. I think when you have children it's a constant battle of stains and dirt. I've found the faster you do your laundry - the easier in the long run. :o)
