I love all these threads and bunching the laundry together sounds great (Just remember to seperate out the whites for hotwater :D)

3 stars for this and don't forget...since you are using only 'green' type soap, recycle your wash water and water the veggies with it. The soap drives away pests and does not hurt the plants one bit! Good idea for the dry season.
