How often go you wash your bedsheets?

I put freshly washed line dried bedsheets on last night and it was lovely to sleep in the bed, as it always is!

I've just sat on a tube of moisturiser/tanning lotion and didn't realise (arse must be fatter than I realise) and half of it is now on my bed/shorts. I text my friend saying this just happened lol. Why is it always fresh sheets? Sort of message. I now wonder if I'm a bit of a rotter as she text back saying wouldn't you be putting fresh ones on tonight anyway?!

I change mine weekly. Usually a Friday task. Summer may change this but I don't sleep under the duvet if it's too hot so it doesn't automatically change in summer?!

And what about towels?

Once a week I change the sheet and pillows, and turn the duvet over. Duvet cover changed every two weeks.

Every two weeks ish.
More if necessary.

Wow. Once a week is fairly standard in our house. Don't think I know anyone who does it every day.

Bluntness100 Tue 11-Aug-20 14:52:03

Weekly here too. Can’t imagine doing it daily. How much of a ball ache would that be.

Mingo2010 Tue 11-Aug-20 14:53:16

Depends on the weather, once a week if it's not sweaty hot 2-3 a week if it's this weather

MN standard, hourly, or in hot weather every half an hour.(washed at 6 billion degrees)

Probably less than this subject gets posted 😂

About once a week, or sometimes more in hot weather.

Every two week, more if needed.

If I washed and dried outside a set of bedding and it smells of fresh air but I fold it away for next time (I will have made the bed up with a clean set already in the linen cupboard) why doesn't it smell as nice when I come to use it? It doesn't even smell of the nice fabric softner, it just smells of...nothing. Is everyone just using the same set of bed linen and waiting for it to dry? I hope this makes sense?!

We've not had a bedding thread for a while!
They used to be quite regular!
I do my bedding on a Wednesdays and Sundays.

Fuck doing it daily. Weekly ideally if i can be arsed. Pillowcases more often. In fact i dont always do the full thing at the same time. And none of it matches. Shock horror!

SillyUnMurphy Tue 11-Aug-20 14:56:00

Once a week. Changing bed sheets every day would be ridiculous - not to mention what that amount of washing would do for the environment

WanderingMilly Tue 11-Aug-20 14:56:48

Change my sheets every week, everything including duvet covers, the lot. If hot weather possibly twice a week, or if I'm ill and been in bed may change several times a week.

Change towels every day I'm afraid, after showering.
And I'm still old-fashioned enough to wear a nightdress, I have a fresh clean one every night too....

KatherineofTarragon Tue 11-Aug-20 14:59:06

Every 2weeks here. But i air the beds daily.

Whathappenedtothelego Tue 11-Aug-20 15:03:05

I change all the bedding and towels weekly, on a Sunday, to set everyone up for the week ahead.

I don't know anyone who would change every day - presumably either your washing machine would be on constantly, or you would need a big cupboard just to store all the sheets.

Millie2013 Tue 11-Aug-20 15:03:11

Weekly! Love clean sheets night ❤️

starfishmummy Tue 11-Aug-20 15:08:13

Twice a day.

MonkeysAllGoWoo Tue 11-Aug-20 15:11:56

Breathes big sigh of relief!

Who has the time to do it daily? And then what about the environmental aspect of it... in winter are they tumble drying everyday?

Sheets at least once a week and duvet cover longer (2/3 weeks). I have a sheet between me and duvet and menopause means 9/10 I just have the sheet on.

MinnieMountain Tue 11-Aug-20 15:15:14

Every other week. I alternate Fridays with DS's and mine and DH's.

LightDrizzle Tue 11-Aug-20 15:18:06

Every two weeks and aired daily.
If needed, one of us I’ll and sweaty, more often.
I hate changing double beds and I dare say that plays a part.

TheOrigBrave Tue 11-Aug-20 15:19:03

It used to be about once a week, it's WAY more often than that now due to peri-menopausal night sweats. I wake up literally dripping. The neighbours must think I'm a bit batty (or are clued up about what can happen to women in their late 40s!).

I need more bed linen.

BertieBassettsBits Tue 11-Aug-20 15:24:30

Twice a week at least

SaintWilfred Tue 11-Aug-20 15:26:44

Every Friday... For some reason we call this, and the general cleaning/tidying that goes on that day, "getting Gogglebox ready".

Turnedouttoes Tue 11-Aug-20 15:28:33

Every Sunday. However, if I ever win the lottery, I will pay someone to change my sheets for fresh ones every day. I love the clean feeling especially when you’ve shaved your legs and moisturised before getting in grin
