I understand that we are all busy and hate to do the washing or any housework for that matter!
Unfortunately if we ignore it, the pile will grow and not disappear as you hoped it would.
The most valuable tip I can offer is this:
Even if you only have small loads, use an economic cycle and wash alternate loads daily – colors today and whites tomorrow.
Small loads are easier to maintain and will avoid you spending all of Saturday washing endless piles of clothes.
