Having a discussion with dh and friend about how often it is normal to change bedsheets. My mum cannot go for a week without changing bedsheets and we think this us excessive. We feel, as disgusting as is it is, that it is far more normal to leave it for weeks and only do it when it gets absolutely necessary. We think more people are like this than are willing to admit. Are we being unreasonable?

Weekly here, give or take a day or two. Nothing better than crisp, clean sheets. Could not leave it longer than a fortnight, I wouldn't be able to sleep!

Every fortnight to three weeks. Weekly if really hot.

Every 2 weeks on the dot. DP is very particular about it, haha.

Twice a year whether they need it or not.

once a month ish, but only if i've cleared the rest of the washing because if i cant get them on the line, they take a couple of days to dry indoors.

we turn our duvet down to air the bed though, and im not averse to changing the bed sheet and leaving the duvet cover/pillows to change another time.

At least once a week in this house, twice in the summer.

Once a week. Duvet and pillow get replaced yearly.

I aim for once a fortnight - sometimes it's a bit more.

I worry about all the energy/water/detergent used for more than once a week!
