Yeah Quarantine!! That way all our bacteria can build up and make us impervious to all disease! Then we we break out everyone else will keel over in a matter of hours and we will rule the world. Instead of zombie apocalypse, it will be dirty sheet people apocalypse.

Anyone who is that worried about other people's sheets needs therapy. Why do you care?? I do it every Sunday out of habit. If someone else does it once a month, it's really not the end of the world.

I put less than once a month. I sleep on a couch with a comforter, I don't need sheets, therefore I wash them less than once a month. Not to mention some people may travel, or not sleep in their own beds. I don't think people should be quarantined for that. I'm sure you have some at home habits I would find pretty disgusting too. lol

not everyone can afford the laundry soap to do a whole house full of sheets everyday--if your that dirty that you make your sheets filthy then you need to shower more often--i for one shower at night cuz i can only do it when the kids are asleep

I usually wash our sheets every other day. Our blanket too. But I choose the answer twice a week cause was closest. If it wasn't for my 2German shepherds sneaking on the bed in middle of night after we fall asleep I'd do them once a week at least. I'm not a clean freak I just love the feel of laying down on my unbelievably comfortable tempurpedic bed with super soft clean sheets. Even washing every other day u can feel the difference.

I don't understand why you say you chose "twice a week" over "every 1-2 days". If you wash them every other day, then that is every 2 days. They had an answer for you.

Yeah, I speak from experience, it can make you sick unfortunately. Then again maybe their immune systems are different, but even if you are a clean person, sheets get smelly after while. I can't imagine going a year without changing mine for example.

I personally wash my sheets every other week because I use air conditioning at 65 degrees at night, so I don't really sweat. I think some people might wash theirs more often simply because of the sweat factor.

Hey... The poll doesn't ask how often you sleep on the sheets!!! I travel a lot and am only home 8-10 days a month,so I change them right before I leave home on the 1st weekend of each month.

Sheets should be washed EVERY week.
We shed skin cells in our bed.
This in turn causes dust mites.

We also, shed hair and some drool.

Just remember, some people don't have access to a washer and dryer where they live. I don't. My husband gets paid bi weekly. Which means, laundry gets done on a bi weekly basis. So "yuck" all you want, but not everyone is made out of money to be able to run to the laundromat all the time and wash their sheets.

Hmmm, you're probably right (at the same time, you have got to wonder at what point it becomes an example of the desire to be overly clean... although it may just be different for one's bed!).

I wonder how linens compare in resilience to what we wear? And how many is usual to own? I've only got access to two lol. I wash a little more than once a month.

Overly clean to me is using antibacterial soap, which is not good.
We need our immune system to fight bacteria.
It's become overkill with that stuff.

What about ppl who let their pets on the bed?
They walk in the street and hop on your bed!
Which means, they're stepping in spit, animal urine, allergens, etc.
(Makes you want to wash you sheets more often now, huh? lol)

I would think at least 3 sets of sheets.
That way if you don't get to do laundry a week of two, you're covered.

Sheet washing is like towels.
Gots to be done.
(Some may argue this point, but really?)
morimunda

I completely agree withe everything you said. Me personally, I have multiple sheets because I just naturally sweat more than others and I can only imagine how smelly & uncomfortable my bed would be if I left it for weeks on end without changing/cleaning.
morimunda

I wash my sheets once a week but there are times I have to do it a few times a week. Which will seem like overkill to others but then, they don't sweat like I do! :(

I tend to go on "laundry sprees" and will wash a few sets, one after another. I really ought to wash my comforters more often, but I need to go to a laundromat to have a washer/dryer large enough to accommodate a comforter (and a few CLEAN tennis balls to keep it from getting "lumpy" in the dryer). I hate having to wait around in the laundromat for hours (some folks WILL steal your clothes/sheets) and don't feel safe because there tend to be homeless who aggressively panhandle, or mentally ill (I'm assuming some are homeless, too), and other folks and have seen fights start out of NOWHERE (though I'm guessing some of them know each other?), the last one I saw involved a knife. There are cameras, but there was no one on site.

Sheets can easily stay clean for a month if you sleep in clean pajamas every night (unless you sweat into them or spill something on the bed).

If your sheets are made of 100% Flax-linen fabric then it is best not to wash them too often. They just don't need it more often and actually will benefit from less washing and in a gentle cycle.

When you are my age and your mother raises you to change your sheets every week the habit is impossible to break. besides it is so nice to crawl into clean sheets especially if they are dried on a clothes line.
