Laundry Schedule

In a family of 5 with three active (code for messy) kids, we make a lot of laundry. I get a lot of questions on how to keep up with it all. The answer is simple…a schedule. Here is a great laundry schedule and distribution of labor for families

Distribution of Labor for Laundry:

Mom: Deals with stains, Starts washer, fluffs line-dried clothes, ironing, putting away parents laundry, helps kids as needed

Oldest Child: In charge of hanging to dry and folding clothes, underwear, putting away their own laundry

Middle Child: In charge of hanging to dry and folding towels, linens, socks, putting away their own laundry

Younger children: gathering dirty clothes, putting away their own laundry  

Laundry Schedule:

Monday – Darks

Tuesday – Whites/Hot water items

Wednesday – Towels

Thursday – Bed linens

Friday – ironing, mending

Saturday or Sunday – one load as needed for special items (swim suits & beach towels in the summer, scarves & hats in the winter etc.)
