    i wash everyday if not more sometimes esp in summer when a load will dry in a couple hrs. i like to stay ontop of it all so it doesnt take me long at all to hang/bring in/fold/put away all at once. takes 10mins per day.
    during winter we have 3 clothes horses inside and i am forevrer rotating dry stuff with damp stuff!!! i hate winter!
    towles weekly or when needed
    bed sheets fortnightly
    8kg washer, 4 people.
    oh and i have never seperated lights and darks - they all go in together and ive never had issues.
    i have a soak bucket for stains set up al the time.

    if they dont dry properly by next shower i will grab a fresh towel.
    some people think they get dirty - skin and what not, but you are drying a clean body so i have no idea why you would do it on a daily basis.

    There is always a full load of towels and manchester every second day. We replace towels every day. Then there's sheets, face washers, tea towels. I use microfiber dish cloths and wash them regularly.

    Well I'm a complete grot!!!

    probably wash towels every couple of weeks when I think of it, I'm going to be brutally honest and admit the sheets get changed every season (dd's a little more frequent but if she's only weed the bed a little I leave it to dry) and same with her sleeping bags,

    work clothes DH changes daily but cos I have a uniform I get away with a couple of days at least, underpants I still change daily but things like jeans and jumpers I only wash when they are obviously dirty , I just take them out the hamper, fold/hang and out them back away

    So I probably do 1 load of clothes a week and other stuff when it gets done, usually when it's sunny and feeling motivated ;not very often!!! lol...

    I do use cloth nappies so they are the main thing, washed every 2-3 days

    So lazy and dirty.... MIL will be mortified when we move in with her she is such a clean freak

    Towels get washed when they start to smell or if DF "forgets" to hang them up and they sit in a damp pile on the floor then I'll grab a new one. Sheets get washed monthly? Sometimes a bit longer, DF works nights so when I wanna wash the sheets he's usually on them. As for clothes, if it's a nice day I'll try and get a load or two done, otherwise I'll generally wait until DF has a sook because he's out of clean socks and undies or the washing basket overflows onto the floor...

    I imagine that I'll have to pull my finger out when we have kids but for now.. Meh =)

    I tend not to reuse a towel once it's been used due to hygiene reasons. If it's only been wet with water, I'll sun dry it on the line but otherwise it goes into the washing tub for Sunday...which is our washing day. They are then washed separately from the clothes.

    I tend not to worry about washing certain items every time I use them but towels and linen I'm pretty particular about because your bodily fluids are in contact with them (as well as potentially the rest of the household) and in terms of sheets/pillowcases, your skin is in direct contact with them for lengthy periods of time - eg. overnight (sweat, sperm, vaginal discharge, skin cells, spittle etc) so while you might not see anything, it's all there, gettin' festy while waiting to be washed. Uh huh.

    Probably 6 days a week, between 2 to 4 loads a day for a family of 4. Our machines not the biggest and I change towels every day or two.

    We are a family of 6 and do 1-2 loads a day sometimes more. Putting away washing is another story, something I hate doing!!
