  • Ideally, once a week. However, with all of the other laundry I have piled up I almost never reach that goal. It's more like once every two-three weeks. My kids sheets get changed way more often because they have so many spares. I have only one king fitted sheet and we never use the flat sheet.
    I am very aware that the ladies of Good Housekeeping would give me a slap on the wrist and lord only knows what Martha Stewart would say. But heck, I am fine with it and my husband wouldn't notice if I washed them daily VS monthly... so I will take my F in sheet washing while I sit here and fold his underwear :)

  • Not nearly often enough lol. But, for mine to actually stay clean, I'd have to wash them at least once a day (DH drives a plow in the winter on night shift, and when he works day he usually comes home covered in grease, oil, and I don't want to know what else, and immediately lays down). I guess I wash once a week to once every week and a half on average (sometimes more frequently, though). I get lazy sometimes and don't feel like doing ANOTHER load of laundry, so I'll put those off for another day or two. I'm bad like that.

  • Hi, my name is Susan....I am OCD. I must wash sheets, blankets, and pillows on a very regular basis. Crumbs in the butter make me psychotic. I am addicted to 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, counted cross stitch, photography, long hot baths, the sun, and crunching ice.
