I’ve talked about my laundry routine before (here), and if you read through the posts, you’ll notice that my routine has changed over the years. I’ve gone from doing specific loads of laundry during certain days of the week, to doing laundry as needed, and now I do smaller loads nearly every day.
In conclusion: there is no right answer. You have to do what works best for you and your home.
I prefer doing smaller loads of laundry nearly everyday because I find it helps keep us tidier. It makes me feel like I am doing less work and it goes by faster than if I waited for it to build up.
Here’s the thing: Laundry will never be a “finished” chore. It’s not like you can thoroughly wash all the clothes and be done with it forever. The best thing to do is to experiment what works best for you. If doing a large load of clothes helps keep it off the floor, or piled up somewhere, waiting for you to put it away, then go for it.
Except, if you have tips on washing whites, please pass them along to me!
