It varies. Maybe 4-5 now but in the warmer months it is more.

Since I am doing laundry for just myself and I work remote I don't do as much laundry as I used to. I usually do three loads every other weekend, on the opposite weekend I only do one load. I have a large capacity machine, which I think most of them are, I only do towels and sheets every other week. All of my clothes are usually casual so they all go in one load on cold. Since I use Lysol laundry sanitizer I am comfortable with using cold on everything now.

My DW doesn't want me to touch her clothes. So I usually have 2 loads a week. One for my clothes and the other for car detail towels.

Me: One to two loads per week.
My animals: One to two loads per week.
At work, I'm the laundry person, and that can be anywhere from 2-3 loads a week to 2-3 loads a day!!

3-5 they are small loads but I'd rather that than big piles.

During the start of the Spring/summer and Fall/Winter seasons there are a couple of weeks with several extra loads.

Those of you that do weekly pet items - what are you washing? Am I supposed to do blankets once a week or beds? Usually that's monthly or bi-monthly depending. Weekly I de-shed them LOL. Was I supposed to wash them that often too? Feeling like a bad pet parent here!

When I was working full-time and the kids were young I did at least 5-6 loads p/wk but now I do approximately 3.

About 5...maybe 6? Some types of loads only get done every other week.

Between 4 and 7, depending on how large of a load. I do laundry twice a week for our clothes. One load of dirty bed sheets, and one load of towels. Cat linens washed every other week.

Usually 1-2. husband does his own laundry. I do the linen/towel stuff, but I let it build up until I have a full load. Same with my clothes. Since I'm not working I have enough of what I do were (Tshirts and lounge pants) so I don't have to do it maybe once a week.
