California literally just made it illegal to shower, wash your dishes and do your laundry all on the same day. Think that sounds crazy, even for California? Apparently not. State lawmakers just passed a new law that limits how much water you can use in your home – it’s 55 gallons per person, per day by 2022. And it drops to just 50 gallons by 2030.
Here’s some perspective. Washing one load of laundry takes about 40 gallons of water. Taking a shower uses about 17. So if you’re single, it will literally be illegal to take a shower and wash your clothes in the same day. Flushing a toilet takes about 3 gallons, so have fun not doing that.
But this is pretty par for the course for the Golden State, where they just passed another law mandating that all new homes be at least 50 percent solar powered by 2030.
Of course, it’s not like the dumpster fire that is California has anything else to worry about. Oh, wait...
