Cruise laundry

So its been a week since I've been back and still haven't done my laundry since i've been back. Clothes are starting to overflow and i'm thinking laundry might need to be done when I get home from work today....I guess this is why people take a day or two after vacation before going back to work...

When does everyone usually do their laundry after a vacation?

I had 3 weeks worth and started it the morning I got back because I am already packing for the Caribbean. Plus when I left home, it was 114 and is now down to a cool 80 so I am switching seasonal clothes lol.

Now I get complimentary laundry on my cruises so I don't have any laundry to do after cruising. When I take a land vacation, I usually do it the day after I return. If I am at a timeshare courtesy of my my sister or a friend (I don't own a timeshare of my own) I will do it at the timeshare. Units have machines in units.

I wish I had the free laundry or motivation to do it the day I got back... Now its 2 weeks of laundry piled up Crying

I try to do within a week or 2. Laundry, housework, work is the furthest thing on my mind after a cruise.

As I empty our luggage, the clothes go right into the laundry room and a load gets started. It's all done by the next day.

Usually within two or three days. There is always something we need in the cruise laundry, so once I start it I try to finish it up. Otherwise, it's hard to say when I might get motivated again Surprised

Worst of the return-from-cruise chores.

I've been known to send out our laundry and dry cleaning rather than deal with the mountain.

Usually as soon as we get home we have to start laundry – there’s a certain amount of cross-over between the cruise clothes and what I need to wear to work tomorrow.

I get free or discount laundry on the ship, so much nicer to go home with clean laundry Big Smile What ever does not get done on the ship gets done in a day or two. since dropping a few pounds I only have 2 pair of jeans that fit so laundry has to be done quick.

Usually the day after we get back.
