my new years resolution is to be more organised with housework so basically how often do you change the sheets on yours and dc's beds?

I mean to do it once a week, but realistically it's more like once a fortnight <slattern alert>.

I also aim for once a week, but choose a time when I have time to get everything dry, put away and beds remade. Everyone in this house has a bath before bed anyway so don't feel too bad if it's a bit longer.

Once a week here.

Always once a week here - would do it more often if I could as I love getting into a bed with fresh sheets grin

I alternate - ours one week and dcs the next - would love to do them all every week but this seems to be more achievable.

About once a fortnight, sometimes slips to a bit longer. Once a week would be nice if the bed fairy (or DH? yeah, right!) did it instead of me...

just like dew
and lots of airing every morning and evening.

Once a fortnight.

thanks everyone. I think once a fortnight is realistic but will aim for more.

Our bed is changed every 10 days or so. Dsd has fresh sheets once a month (she only sleeps in them every other weekend so only 4-6 nights) and we keep her room well aired/tidy/the cat and dogs out.

Weekly in summer, probably 10-14 days in winter - no tumble drier.

The dc's beds are changed every weekend, I change my bedding every 3 days-ish as I have night sweats and can't bear the thought of smelly dirty sheets. Also wash duvet and pillows every 2 or 3 weeks.

Every week but trying to change twice a week as it's so bloody hot here and we don't have ac.

Weekly -DDs on Tuesday, mine on Wednesday. I don't have a tumble drier!

chanie44 Wed 23-Jan-13 10:41:34

Every other week here - just don't have the time or space to wash them every week.

Pendipidy Wed 23-Jan-13 10:48:17

Keep - you wash your duvets and pillows every two or three weeks?! shock

bluecarrot Wed 23-Jan-13 11:15:51

Does she mean duvet cover and pillow cases maybe?? And the two sheets get washed more often?

KeepYerTitsIn Fri 25-Jan-13 05:47:14

Hi, no I really do wash the duvets and pillows that often - have to, they'd be really unhealthy otherwise I think as I really sweat lots in the night, wake up drenched.

weekly here - dcs on fridays, mine on Sundays. I love sleeping in clean sheets too and would do it every couple of days if I had a housekeeper!

BigGiantCowWithAKnockKnockTail Fri 25-Jan-13 06:24:23

When I'm being organised I do sheets and pillow cases weekly and duvet covers fortnightly, for no other reason than that's what we did at my prep school and it kind of stuck in my head!

SureFineWhatever Fri 25-Jan-13 06:38:25

For our bed, I aim for weekly but more realistically it ends up fortnightly. Dcs are in cots so theirs get done more frequently, usually more than once a week esp if spills or spews.

It's supposed to be sheet changing day today (Fridays). I've got approximately six hours to do it. It probably won't happen.

Once a fortnight.
