Clean Tops (Posted on 2006-09-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Three girls went on a vacation, each wearing a red "Love to travel" T-shirt. They each have brought 9 other clean tops, but are fairly active, and as a result each top becomes dirty after wearing it for a day,

They wanted to wear a clean top each day, so fortunately, their cabin came with a washer and drier, however, they could only wash two girls' clothes at a time, so the first and third girls had to wait until the next day to wash their clothes once each.

Their vacation lasted 3 weeks (including the day they left), so each girl washes her clothes twice while on vacation.

Here is a list of when they wore what. (Note they wore only one top per day.)

First girl:
  1. Red "Love to travel" T-shirt
  2. Floral tank top

From this information, what day did each girl wash her clothes?

Notes: Each girl washes her current top when she washes her other dirty clothes, so it is clean for following days. Differences between lights/darks or types of tops do not matter in the washing process.
