I assume that you do not work outside the home. That is something I would think would be quite a burden to someone that wasn't home all day. But what do I know. And one question...how the heck do you afford your water/electric/gas bill? Seems like that would get pretty expensive.
I do not work outside the home at this time but I do volunteer quite a bit and combine that with running all over with activities I don't actually spend tons of time hanging around. I start laundry very early in the day. I do agree that if I was at work 9-5 it might be a little difficult but still doable. I have the laundry timing down to a science. I have a super efficient washer so the water bills are relatively small. The oil bill has always been ridiculous no matter how much or how little laundry we do. It just is what it is. Nothing really makes it go down substantially. Sad but true.

Come on people..
Who is even implying such a thing? There are plenty of clean things, it doesn't mean I want to rub them on my face. You also shed skin cells etc. when you dry off and I want a clean towel all the time. I am not a towel reuser.

I reuse my towel 2-3 times before washing. I use it after showering, showering gets you clean, I don't see the big deal.

I'm in the camp that only uses my towels once before washing them. It's how I grew up. When I was an undergrad, I would use them for a week before washing, but that was only because I had to use my dorm's laundromat, and I was trying to save money and time. Now that I have my own washer and dryer, it's fresh towels everyday for me and DH. We usually do laundry about twice a week to keep the hamper from overflowing. As for pajamas, we don't wear those, and we try to change the sheets every week (but sometimes life gets in the way and we don't get around to it until the second week).

There's no wrong or right answer for this one, as it's all about personal preference. In my case, there's no reason for me to have to reuse my towels, so I don't.

Not the quoted poster but I will share my routine.
Load washer before bed.
Wake up, transfer load to dryer, reload washer.
Afternoon/Evening- unload/reload dryer, kids help fold and put away laundry. Throw in third load, if needed.
I do not work outside the home, but my routine is pretty basic and would be possible if I did.

Yep. I wash everything. If it can not survive the machine, we do not need it.
Simmons foam pillows do not lump, if anyone is looking for a good washable pillow.

(I have a horrible dust allergy. That may factor into my laundry ocd a tiny bit. I do enjoy the ability to breathe easily )

How about helping out the environment?

I use 2 towels daily, 1 for my super long hair (waist length) and 1 for my body, I reuse them before I wash them.

I don't, but I might start. I buy us new pillows all the time and it get's expensive. We like fluffy new pillows here! I never really thought of washing them. Do they come out flat and lumpy?

While my household has 18-20 loads of laundry per week, I am not the one doing it all so I just gotta say...

I have to ask -- how many family members that you have 18-20 loads of laundry a week?

Heavens! That's so, so much water used every year. With the most water-conservationist washer you can buy, that's well over 25,000 gallons a year; with a conventional washer, it's over 40,000. I'm not a rabid environmentalist, but I couldn't justify using that much water unless I had a family of ten.

New towel for each bath for sure in summer, in coldest of winter we MIGHT use it twice. I live in South Louisiana , the humidity and heat is insane here. .Towels smell bad quickly , even with AC on , which I turn up during day if we aren't here. Sheets are washed about every 3 days in master , I like new fresh sheets. DS10's sheets get washed every cpl of weeks , which sounds funny but he sleeps on top of quilt and under a really soft thin blanket . Blanket is washed every 3 or 4 days as he drags it all over the house. Dog sleeps with us , which is the reason I wash so much , she gets washed every four days too lol.

Pillows are washed every two weeks, yes they come out fluffy and I replace yearly .

Hubby sweats alot at work during summer so sometimes no matter what we couldn't reuse his towels, no amount of soap in the world will totally erase 100 degree stink : ) . I do at least 1 or 2 loads of laundry a day , with 3 people , 3 dogs and 1 cat in house. If it isn't people clothing, it is dog beds or doggie bath towels etc.

I use a towel for a few days to a week (usually, until I wrap my hair in it and come downstairs, as opposed to toweling off and throwing it over the rail), with a fresh washcloth for each shower. I prefer thin towels, too (where 10-12 fit in a load!)

My DH uses a fresh towel for each shower (sometimes twice a day) and prefers the thick, plush, large bath sheets that only fit about 5-7 a load But... he does help out a LOT with laundry, so I go with it.

DD1 has to take two clear-water baths a day, and use a fresh towel for each. I use very small towels for her as she is small, and not washing her hair :-)
