Gen Z’s Gross Laundry Habits Revealed in Recent Report

Gen Z has the grossest laundry habits, according to a recent report by LG Electronics. The Laundry Care Report 2024 revealed some concerning trends in the laundry habits of Australians, with Gen Z emerging as the worst offenders.

The report highlighted that one in five Australians were wearing their undergarments two times or more before washing them. Additionally, over a quarter of Australians were found to be reusing their gym clothes before washing them. However, the most alarming findings were related to Gen Z’s laundry habits.

Gen Z individuals were found to be more likely to wear their undergarments and gym clothes multiple times before washing them, with 30 percent admitting to reusing their underwear and 36 percent doing the same with their gym gear. Furthermore, a significant 46 percent of Gen Z confessed to having a chair in their room where they would place clothes that were not dirty enough for washing but not clean enough to be returned to the wardrobe.

The report also shed light on the challenges faced by Australians when doing laundry, including hard-to-remove stains, fading colors, organizing, and ironing. Surprisingly, close to 30 percent of Australians admitted to never ironing, and 42 percent stated that they only iron when absolutely necessary.

Moreover, the report revealed that over half of Australians avoid purchasing clothes that require dry cleaning, primarily due to the inconvenience of making the trip. Many also steer clear of materials such as silk or cashmere because they are unsure of how to wash them.

Shannon Tweedie, the marketing manager for home appliances at LG Australia, commented on the findings, stating, ‘The report paints a clear picture of how Australian households are approaching laundry, revealing many of us find the task time-consuming, confusing, and overwhelming. From skipping washes and ironing to avoiding certain fabrics altogether, it’s evident that time-poor Australians are seeking a hassle-free solution to their laundry challenges.’

These revelations from the Laundry Care Report 2024 highlight the need for a shift in laundry habits, particularly among the younger generation. With the growing concerns over environmental impact and hygiene, it is crucial for individuals, especially Gen Z, to adopt more responsible and hygienic laundry practices.
