How often does everyone change bed linen?

I have a bit of a thing about it. I do them weekly at the moment and when I win the lottery they'll be done every day!

Everyday? That's excessive? How would you dry them all? Surely you have more exciting plans for when you win the lottery!wink
Anyway I change mine every 2 weeks, though if I had more time I'd rather every week.

Every 2-3 wks. But I do love the first night in fresh linen. Would change more often if I cba smile

That would be very bad for our poor planet, that would 6 extra loads of washing per week hmm. I'd travel the world if I was you and set up a home for rescue cats smile

Every couple of weeks here too.
If I won the lottery I would also travel the world and spend lots of time walking mountains grin

Every week

Weekly to fortnightly

When I win the lottery the housekeep will do them weekly - and whenever DS wipes his snotty nose on them.grin

I'm a real fuss pot when it comes to clean bed linen.
I change mine twice a week without fail.

Oh yes OP - I'm with you on this one. When I win the lottery I'll pay to have someone to put fresh sheets on my bed everyday and I'll never wash and dry my own hair again. My 2 luxuries grin

There is a mumsnetter that does hers daily. Can't remember her name though.
I'm twice weekly through the summer once a week in the winter.
We sleep naked though.

Ankleswingers Thu 06-Aug-15 21:22:45

Hepzibar- my mum says exactly the same thing as you! smile

I am going to wave the lazy flag on this thread just to help other lurkers - we change ours every month - 6 weeks possibly even longer in winter.

I also love fresh sheets but we haven't got a tumble drier and our bed is a super king in a tiny room so it is a proper faff to strip and remake it so it is reserved for a guaranteed dry day and our bed is a super king in a tiny room so it is a proper faff to strip and remake it. Nothing bad has happened to us yet. The children's sheets get changed a bit more regularly as I can get to their sheets more easily.

I feel no shame about this.

Every week here.

Tanito279 Thu 06-Aug-15 21:30:34

Every four weeks. I do one chore each weekend, eg deep clean kitchen one week, bathroom the next, bed linen third week and everything else the fourth week. No way I could do it all more often and have time for mumsnet smile

SwearyGodmother Thu 06-Aug-15 21:35:14

Weekly here. won't mention that it is done by the cleaner and left to my own devices I'm a bit more slovenly

specialsubject Thu 06-Aug-15 21:35:34

about weekly, no tumble dryer but that's what the outside line is for. And I have more than one spare set if it rains!!

evening baths/showers keep bedding cleaner!

HelenaJustina Thu 06-Aug-15 21:37:18

Fortnightly, ours one week, DC the next, always on a Monday.

Hepzibar Thu 06-Aug-15 21:39:57

Ankleswingers are you my DD?

GobblersKnob Thu 06-Aug-15 21:44:16

All changed once a week, sheet often given extra wash every three days or so as sleep with two dogs and not super keen on hairy sheets.

TheHappinessTrap Thu 06-Aug-15 21:47:12

We get so much pleasure from this bit keep it to weekly!

cuntyMcCunterson Thu 06-Aug-15 21:47:57

Weekly. Change ours and the spare room on a Saturday morning. Love climbing into a fresh Bec, I'd do it twice a week but it's not possible thanks to working shifts
