After DH & I have now talked about this for the 3rd time I'm appealing to you to tell me if IBU or you would find this minging too......

MIL & her sister own a commercial laundry business they launder towels, bedding etc for hotels, b&b's & holiday cottages etc.

I went to the laundry just before Christmas to drop off some cards etc & took 3 yo DD.

I went to the loo & when I came back MIL was pushing DD round in one of the big laundry carts on wheels full of dirty sheets. They were definitely dirty as having helped out in there before I know things only go in that cart before being washed. Next salute she has DD burrowing down in amongst the washing & playing peekaboo.

Don't get me wrong DD was having a blast but I said something along the lines of 'urgh' they'll be all dirty & DH's aunt said 'oh don't be daft all the kids play it' (she has 6 GKids)

DH thinks I'm being precious but the thought of DD wriggling about in come (& other bodily fluid) stained bedsheets makes me shudder.

Is it just me?

I agree with you. Strangers' used bedding and towels, gross.

Yes, it's disgusting! The sheets will have semen on them - bleurgh!

scruffmacduff Sun 01-Jan-17 20:30:58

Yuck! Totally agree with you OP confused

Argh! That is grim to say the least!

Agree with you OP.

There could be any sort of bodily fluid in there.

I'm with you. I've worked as a chambermaid....bleugh. The state some people leave sheets in in hotels is shocking.

That is fucking disgusting. I don't like my kids coming into our bed when the sheets haven't been changed for a few days because of spunk and whatever else may lurk. Strangers bedsheets, wtf!

That is minging. The more you think about it the worse it gets seriously. I would go stratospheric and I am not a clean freak and was brought up dirty
have an amazing immune system but blimey that is gross!

ineedamoreadultieradult Sun 01-Jan-17 20:33:59

Yes that is bleugh. Those sheets could have all sorts on them!

I am not a clean freak, but I did briefly work in housekeeping while at uni. I would definitely not be doing that!

GreenTureen Sun 01-Jan-17 20:42:30

YANBU, rank.

dingdongdigeridoo Sun 01-Jan-17 20:43:26

Ugh no. I'm very laid back about dirt and germs. But other people's bedsheets? No.

DontTouchTheMoustache Sun 01-Jan-17 20:43:59

Gross, there are things that can be passed on from sheets, public lice, scabies, bed bugs etc. I would always change bedsheets for guests so can't understand why on earth anyone thinks this is ok?

I feel itchy just reading that... envy

Bluetrews25 Sun 01-Jan-17 20:55:13

Another non-clean freak here.
But there will be skin flakes, hairs at best.
At worst, threadworm eggs, lice, and body fluids.
Would they do this in a hospital? I think not!

DonutParade Sun 01-Jan-17 20:56:13

Bloody hell.

If child were playing in own family laundry basket,no she'd already be exposed to the pathogen
But immersed in laundry cart of other folk pathogens,is quite gross
