How Much Laundry Does the Average Family Do per Week?

How Much Laundry Does the Average Family Do per Week?

The average family in the United States does eight to 10 loads of laundry each week, with almost 70% of this work in married households being done by women. More than 20% of all water used by US households is estimated to be for doing laundry. A load of laundry takes an average of one hour and 27 minutes, which takes into account washing and drying. About 20% of laundry loads in the US are washed again because of dissatisfaction with the result, with men being more likely than women to rewash a load of laundry.
More about laundry:

The amount of laundry done at Walt Disney World in a single day is roughly equivalent to one load a day for 52 years.

The average container of laundry detergent in the US weighs about 7 pounds (3.18 kg).
There are more than 35,000 coin laundries in the US, and they made almost $5 billion US Dollars (USD) in 2012.

Agelbert NOTE: We do about one laundry load a MONTH. No I don't pay extra for my water bill. It is included in the lot rent. There is just no reason whatsoever for frequent laundry loads that cause such a waste of water, period.
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou
hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Acts 8:20
