Laundry takes everyone a long time.... the sorting, the washing the drying the re-sorting while folding and then the putting away...
I think though for me laundry takes a bit longer. It is because of the way I sort the dirty clothes, before they even make it to the washer.
I wash about once a week. Not counting the emergency soaking and washing I do for the boys (or my shirts) or Mason's uniforms. A week's worth of clothes covers the entire floor of my little laundry room and spills out into the hallway. To me, that is a lot of clothes and they need to be sorted properly.... as such:
first by color - reds/pinks/purples - yellow and some beige's or tans - green and light green - blue and light blue - whites that can be bleached - whites that cannot be bleached - brown/dark brown - greys and blacks - jeans
then by person - B & T - Me - Mason - Dog towels - Body Towels - kitchen towels - bed sheets
Then by wash type - Hot and hard - Cool and slow etc etc etc
And right in the middle after washing but before the dryer lies the great "hang to dry" sort out - because sometimes its a "lay to dry"....
Anyway - I am just saying... it takes a while !
