Re: Q of the Day

  • How often do you wash... your towels? ... your bras? ...your sheets? ...your coats? 1. Towels: when they are dirty or left on the floor...so at least weekly if not more often

     2. Bras: I usually wear bras twice before washing them, unless I am working, then they get washed as soon as they are warn (Working in a shelter I am paraniod about bedbugs and wash everything I wear as soon as I get home.

    3. Sheets: Not enough....every couple months maybe?

    4. Coats: Only if they look dirty or have something stuck on them...

  • Towels: I try to every week...if not every 2 for sure

    Bras: I do all my laundry at the end of the week, and have 4 bras.. so I guess they probably get worn 2-3 times depending on the week and then get washed on Sunday

     Sheets: Every 2 weeks

     Coats: Unless they're really dirty and i've gotten something on them, usually at the end of the season.

  • Towels: We have SO many towels, one of these days Im taking the ratty ones to the SPCA...we wash our favorites every week 

    Bras: I do all my laundry at the end of the week , everything goes in.

     Sheets: I should do this way more often, I just do them when I feel skivvy haah...like now they need to be done. 

     Coats: Unless they're really dirty and i've gotten something on them, usually at the end of the season.

  • Towel:  I got a ton of towels for my shower so I don't wash them until I have a full load, but they get changed on Sun and Wed.  

    Bras: 3 wearings and then hand washed

    Sheets: weekly, mattress and feather bed covers and pillow covers every other week, blankets, comforter and  pillows once a month, I'd wash them more frequently but the comforter and the pillows are down and take forever to dry.

    Coats: at the end of each season and then stored unless I get something on them and they have to be washed.

    Bras - I'll wear them 2 or 3 times before I wash them... sometimes more (I always sniff test lol!)

    Sheets - every two weeks, give or take

    Coats - uuhhh.... maybe twice during the season, it depends if they look dirty really.

    Do you wash your down comforter in your washing machine, what type of washer do you have? I used to wash mine in my front load washers, but I've moved into an apartment with the top load washer and I'm scared I'll destroy my comforter.

  • Towels: Every week.

    Bras: I totally use the sniff test, haha.

    Sheets: I wash pillowcases every week. Sheets I'll do every 2-3 weeks.

    Coats: Probably once a year. Although I have a white winter coat that I love and wear the most so that usually gets washed at least 3 times during the winter.

    Coats: once a season unless it's dirty or smells

  • This discussion makes me want to go home and do laundry now! How often do you wash your.....towels? They get used about 3x before I use a fresh one. Then wash ....your bras? Once a month, but in the summer more often. Sports bras can get worn maybe twice before I wash it. Depends. ....your sheets? Every week. ....your coats? Once a season, unless they get dirty. I have a white jacket, so if it gets something on it, or the sleeves are looking like hell, then I wash.
