How often does a family of 4 do laundry?

Then, figure in a load for all of the bedding for a week (three sets of sheets can probably fit in one load), and two loads for towels (12 washcloths, two kitchen towels, eight bath towels, and four hand towels), and a typical family of four probably generates between 8 and 10 loads of laundry per week.

Considering this, how many loads of laundry does the average family do per week?

The average American family does 8–10 loads of laundry each week. A single load of laundry, from wash to dry, takes an average of one hour and 27 minutes to complete–unless you streamline the process.

Likewise, how many loads of laundry can you do in a day? Repeat your timer for 1 hr. Continue this cycle until all your clothes have made their way through the system. In this manner you can wash upwards of 10 loads a day. I currently wash 6-8 loads every Monday for our family of five.

In this way, how often does the average person do laundry?

So, it falls to parents to take up the load – or loads. The average family does their laundry once a week. Depending on the family size, this can take anywhere between 2 to 5 hours. For a family with pets, doing the laundry can take much longer.

How many wash loads a week?

In fact, most weeks we do an average of seven loads. This includes bedding and towels and spill rags and the like (which usually comprise at least two whole loads per week).
