 Same with me!

Kids uniforms get changed daily. They have enough sets for one a day

Towels every second day

Bed linen weekly

Do a search, this kind of question has been asked before. And for some strange reason, the discussion always becomes heated! Let’s see where this one goes 😂

 You must be rich with uniforms

I can’t believe people wash their towels after every use . That’s psychotic.

 Where do you hang all your towels until the next day? I don’t like wet towels over doors or chairs in bedrooms. If you have enough room to hang them in the bathroom do you make sure you are using your same towel the next day?! Or risk washing your face where someone else has wiped their bottom! Wash every tune for me.

 Towel rack? I wash towels every second day. Everyone has their own towel. And they hang them up in the same spot. Mine and hubby’s , towel rack. Kids each have a hook on the bathroom door. The towels dry between use. It’s not hard not to confuse your towel for someone else’s.

 Do you share towels ?
helpful (0) 
 Yes I know we all have towel racks!
There’s usually only room for two towels though..(didn’t think of hooks). As long as everyone knew which towel was theirs was my point! I like to wash ours after each use but each to their own.

 How can you afford $1500 per child ?

 It’s not $1500.
It’s like $350 including socks.
Their jacket usually lasts about 3 years each.

Don’t your kids wear deodorant ?

helpful (0) 
 Unless they are about to hit or have already hit puberty, kids don’t need deodorant. And anyway, deodorant should never replace a shower or a change of clothes. How gross.

 Where do your kids go that costs $500 a set?! We go to a Catholics school and I find our uniform is usually $5-10 extra per peice than a public school.

My eldest daughter gets 5 dresses.
$60x4 1 sports uniform ($60) $290. 5x$8 socks. ($40)
So $330
They will all go through my second daughter with the exception of the sports shirt (it fades easily so I usually buy them all a new one )

My son is a boys boy so there’s no way he could re wear his clothes. And I don’t do washing mid week.

I don’t buy uniforms every year though, every 2-3 years.
And jumpers last 3 years easily.

 I should mention my son wears shorts year round.
My girls only have one dress style the whole year.

Towels once a week - including tea towels and hand towels. They dry between use on a towel rack. We have two racks that fit our 5 bath towels. We all know who's is who's. And tea towels etc hang up to dry between uses as well. Uniforms / clothes after each use - about 2 loads a week, more in winter. Bed linen - anywhere from 1-4 weeks lol we all shower every night and kids usually get fresh pjs each night too.

All clothes including school uniforms get washed daily. Towels daily. Bed linen once a week.

 Don’t you hang up your towels or wash your anus properly?

Towels every second day. Linen once a week but pillowcases done twice a week. Not in school yet o no uniforms required. My eldest weren’t Jian kindy shirt once or twice as week just depend on if it’s clean or not but it’s not a compulsory shirt so it doesn’t matter.

 My eldest wears his kindy shirt**
