Some Saturdays are easier than others and other Saturdays are like this one:
Pre-wash-day scene... pretty typical that there are clothes piled up around the sink which are the extra dirty needing to be sprayed
Load #1 - Bathroom mats
Load #2 - Our sheets
Load #3 - Kid sheets - these could and should be done more often
Prepping vinegar water for soaking
The bathing suit that is pink but really should be white because it never stops bleeding
Papa's extra dirty work clothes
Pen + smocked dress = NEVER COMING OUT!
Kids getting in on the laundry action!
Load #4 - Ninis - again these SHOULD be washed more often but sneaking them away is tough
Load #5 - E and R pajamas - it is so much easier keeping M's clothes separate but I've combined hers in the mix the past few times and it is not terrible plus I need to get used to it
Load #6 - E and R clothes
Load #7 - M clothes and pajamas
It soaked for at least 4 hours

Remnants of the presoak for Load #8 - and that darn thing bled on the mesh part of the drying rack!
Load #9 - This shirt had grease spots on it and the spray my MIL gave me to take out grease works great but it stinks and it stays in the clothes that it is washed and dried with
Load #10 - Me and Lee's delicates... This is probably 2 weeks worth but come the winter this is a weekly load
Load #11 - Me and Lee's regular clothes
Work clothes have been soaking all day so no presoak necessary on Load #12
Gag! The water smelled TERRIBLE!!!
Load #13 - Pool towels - hello summer!
Load #14 - Okay these bathing suits are just rinsed because I am way lazy like that!
Load #15 - Assorted regular clothes and stuff that did not make the cut the first go around!
I didn't make 18 loads like I did the last time I actually counted the loads but I have a feeling come December or January with a new baby plus school clothes that will have to be washed I could give it a good run. Can you imagine if we cloth diapered? Yeah... I'd need about 70-80 diapers because they'd only get done once a week!
