  • poll: What's the truth about your laundry...

    All my clothes are washed immediately after wearing, every single time no matter what!

    I wear jeans ONLY multiple times, everything else is washed immediately.

    Only my underwear is washed after one use.

    I rewear all my clothes several times before doing laundry. It cuts down on wear and tear.

    I only do dryclean.

    I change and wash towels weekly.

    I change and wash towels monthly.

    I change and wash bed sheets weekly.

    I change and wash bed sheets monthly.

    Jeans I usually wear until they seem dirty or get stretched out. So like maybe 3-4 times. Other pants I wear pretty much the same. A shirt I wear 1 or 2 times based on what I’m doing when I wear it. Underwear I generally wear less than a full day. Sometimes a full day if I don’t really do anything, but more often than not I change my underwear when I get into PJs because it just feels more clean to do that? I dunno I’m weird lol. 

    Towels get washed every week or so. Sheets get washed 1-2 times/mo.

    Underwear – 1 wear, even if its only for a couple hours

    Jeans – multiple wears

    Bras – 2+ wears (except if I work out then its just 1)

    Shirts – 2+ wears depending on the shirt

    Fancy dresses – many wears

    Dry clean only – gets dry cleaned once in a blue moon


    (I do all of FI’s laundry)

    White tshirts – 1 wear

    Boxers – 1 wear

    Socks – 1 wear

    Jeans – multiple wears

    Shorts – multiple wears

    Work out clothing – 1 wear

    Shirts – multiple wears when Fiance is left to his own devices, 1 when I find them first


    ETA: Sheets and towels should be washed more often than they actually are. I’m not sure when I last did them.

    I rewear everything except panties at least once. I actually have one pair of dry clean only pants that I know I’ve never taken in.  In general Indont wash pants until they get baggy orI spill on them. 

    Shower towels I use twice for my hair/face then twice for my body.  The towels in the guest room never get touched so they pretty much sit there indefinitely then i shake off the dust before guests arrive and wash them after they leave. Same with the guest room sheets. 

    Our sheets I was maybe once every couple weeks. Same with the hand towels in our bathroom.  Except face cloths get used only once.

    I rewear everything but my undies and my gym clothes, and wash my towels and sheets less often than I’d like to admit.

    Jeans a few wears, towels are used for about 3 showers (most people I know do this too, towels must be annoying to wash all the time lol), bras 1-3 times depending on sweatiness, everything else is washed after one use, unless it’s a shirt I had on for just a few hours..oh, and pajama bottoms get worn a few nights, but the shirts are only worn once.  Is that weird? lol

    I rewear everything at least once except panties, unless I spill or get it dirty.  I have some fancy dresses I’ve never washed!  🙂

    Towels get changed once a week, sheets every two weeks.  Kitchen towels get changed out daily.

    In our tropical heat, everything gets one wear and then it’s washed immediately. 

    Unless I only wear something for a few hours and hardly perspire, then I’d wear it again before it gets washed.

    Towels are washed daily and sheets every fortnight.

    Bed sheets and Towels once a week.

    Knickers (I love that word) – one wear

    Bras – as little as possible in the washing machine (I have a bra bag to keep them safe

    Clothes – Summer 1 or 2 wears (you sweat like a pig here) / Winter – multiple wears, A – because we don’t sweat so much and B – because they take so long to dry.

    I wash with machine, unless otherwise stated.  Dry-clean only coats (DH studied textile manufacturing and has saved us a fortune – some dresses I have are ‘dry-clean only’, and DH says with the textile combination they have it’s BS.  I wash them on low setting and are all perfectly fine.

    Everything is line-dried – and in the winter a night on the heater to dry through after mostly drying outside

    I can wear my jeans 4 or 5 times easy before they get too loose then I wash them. I wash my bras every other week. Everthing else gets washed after I wear it once. Shirts, dresses, panties, socks.

    This is only because we have to pay so much to do laundry and we never seem to have quarters I wish our building had a change machine :/ ugh. Once we move and have unlimited laundry access. I’ll wash everything after I wear it… I like it better that way 🙂

    All my clothing gets worn after one wash besides jeans which are 3-4 wears and bras which are 2 besides workout ones.

    My partner is another story… he seems to forget where the basket is for his shirts and jeans :S I tend to go on a household raid twice a week tho!
