AT on ... Laundry Duty. Time to Sniff?

Clotheslines, dryer balls, eco-friendly detergent, dryer sheets ... we love to blog about laundry issues here at Re-nest.

And, to tell you the truth, it's probably my fault. I like laundry -- it's one of those chores that doesn't bother me in the least. And, now that I'm working from home most days, it has become, exclusively, my job. Believe me, I really don't mind, except I do feel like I'm doing far too many loads each week. It's not like there's a brood of rugrats living here -- it's just two of us (and two furry felines).

Which brings me to the question at hand: How do you reduce the amount of laundry that needs to be done in your household each week?

We already reuse our towels multiple times, we change our bedding at a reasonable rate. What else can we do?

Some have suggested, elsewhere in the blogosphere, that re-wearing clothes is one way to go. Well, sure. We re-wear jeans a bazillion times before they get washed, and sweatshirts, and sometimes pajamas. But what else?

Do you subscribe to the school of sniffing before laundering?

Sorry if we're getting a teensy bit too personal!
