This may seem like the oddest question ever on VB but seriously how often do you change and/or wash your bed linen? I have personally known folks who remove and wash them everyday, and I have known folks who do it only monthly. Just curious what your habits are? Do men tend to wash their bed linen less often than women?

I try to change them every 2-3 weeks. More in the summer when it's hot at night. I do a majority of my laundry once a week, so I try to make it a point to wash them every other time. I love clean sheets, I just hate making my bed because it's up against the wall.

That's nice to hear. I have friends who insist on washing their linen (bed sheets) every single night and my god I could not keep up with that.

On average once a week. More often if needed.

Yeah, who has time for that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:"> That's a lot of water too.

I have to admit that I am on the 'infrequent' end of this discussion and looking for justification. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Pretty much... I wash my sheets when they get sticky.

Im the same as Danascully...every other week as I do a weekly clothes wash. As long as you keep yourself clean I see no harm in leaving them 3 weeks inbetween.<br>
Although theres nothign better than a shower, clean jammies and a freshly made bed with clean sheets..mmm.

I don't crawl under the covers unless I'm squeaky clean, so I don't change them as often as I do the pillow cases, which is about once a week.

Do you shower at night or in the morning?

Ironically mine are in the wash right now.<br><br>
I always found myself washing my sheets more frequently when I owned a washer/dryer than when I have to use a laundry room or laundry mat. It's a pain in the ass to lug around so much laundry when you don't have your own machines.

Every week or two, depending on whether I can stuff the sheets in with a load of clothes or not, lol.

Every 3-4 weeks. If I wait longer, they start to smell a bit odd....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">
