With 6 children (including 2 in cloth diapers) and 2 adults, we have to do laundry pretty much every day. Even so, Monday is our “heavy” laundry day. Here is what the laundry rhythm looks like in our home.
MONDAY: Adult laundry, linens and towels, diapers
TUESDAY: Michael’s laundry—he does his own
WEDNESDAY: Katie’s laundry—she does her own. Because she and Molly share a room, a fair bit of Molly’s laundry gets mixed in as well. The rest of her laundry is in our room.
THURSDAY: I wash all three little boys’ clothes. Copious amounts of stain treatment are utilized.
FRIDAY: Adult laundry and diapers again. Adult laundry just means laundry that belongs to the adults. I just thought I would clarify.
And if we’ve played our cards right, we’re all caught up and don’t have laundry to do on the weekends.
The children’s laundry and the sheets all get delivered to their proper home in our family closet. Kitchen linens, towels and washcloths, grown up clothes, and diapers all go upstairs.
And that’s how we spread out the laundry in our home.
