What Does Your Zodiac Sign Say About Your Laundry Habits?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)


Aries is the strongest sign and those born under it are always ready for a challenge, but their short temper is their downfall. They’re the sort of people at the laundromat screaming at everyone for not using the machines properly. They’ll likely get into verbal warfare with multiple other laundromat attendees, but they’ll definitely get the laundry done.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)


Taurus are known for being reliable and always wanting to help, but they can often become quite attached to material possessions. These are the sort of people that won’t throw any of their clothes away no matter how old or worn they become. 


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)


A Gemini is very smart and charismatic but finds it hard to stay in one place for too long. It’s because of this, Gemini’s are the type of people to skilfully manipulate someone else into doing their laundry for them. This does not work in the long term though as their friends and family will quickly stop helping them out.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)


People under the Cancer sign are very compassionate and look after the people they care about but can become attached to the past. They’re the sort of person who is terrified of shrinking their clothes because they did it once before 10 years ago. You can be sure they’ll never buy the wrong detergent again, not after what happened last time!


Leo (July 23 – August 22)


A Leo is determined and energetic but can become quite annoying. Leo’s are very organised when it comes to doing their laundry and you’re definitely going to hear about it. They’ll be the people you envy for being able to do the whole ‘adult’ thing properly and not shutting up about it.


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)


Virgo’s are practical and smart individuals but can sometimes lack awareness of their self-worth.  This makes Virgo’s very conscious of keeping their clothes clean, they’ll only wear anything once before it’s back in the wash basket. Although they do their laundry frequently, they’re always looking for new tips and tricks to get their clothes as clean as possible.


Libra (September 23 – October 22)


Libra’s are great at taking responsibility and are born leaders. They’ll never back down from the laundry pile and although they wouldn’t admit it, they actually kind of enjoy doing it. If you can believe that. If you hate laundry, it’s worth making friends with a Libra.


Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)


Although they don’t like to admit it Scorpio’s are very sensitive and this can sometimes turn to anger. You don’t want to be caught between an Aries and a Scorpio in the laundromat because a full on shouting match will ensue. Passive aggressive just isn’t their style.


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)


Sagittarius are adventurous and hate being contained in their home. Those born under this sign struggle to find focus and because of this, they are some of the worst when it comes to laundry. Doing laundry once a week? More like once a month! Maybe even two months!


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)


Capricorn’s are very ambitious and this is proven with their laundry. Ever been to a Capricorn’s house? It’s like a high-class hotel! Everything from their shirts to their sheets has been washed, dry cleaned, ironed or pressed. Truly something to behold.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)


Anyone from the Pisces sign has a fantastic imagination but they can disappear into their imaginary world sometimes. They’re the sort of person who will think up a lot of different and imaginative ways of not doing laundry and never truly get around to actually doing it.


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)


An Aquarius cares very much of the wellbeing of the human race, so they are always telling people of more eco ways of doing their laundry. You can be sure they’ll have the greenest of washing machines or even do it all by hand!
