Being the laundry person in the house, it depends on the following. The size of the loads, the efficency of the washer and dryer and how early in the morning did she start. If you start at 6 a.m. and work to noon, I could easily do 12 loads. Towels would not be folded, but all shirts and pants would be hung up and other items separated. The smaller the loads, the shorter the wash cycle and the quicker the drying time.
