Is this very OCDish of me?

We have friends and family coming over and of course I bring out the pillows and blankets well after they leave I have to wash EVERYTHING!!! I mean every pillow. I don't mean to be this way but damn I honestly have OCD.
Thanks!

  • I wash stuff that others use. I also wash them before they arrive. But my issue is probably weirder. All the light switches in my house have to be in the same position when the lights are off. It drives me so crazy that I had to rewire one switch in our house because it was backwards for some reason.

  • I think it's pretty normal to wash stuff a guest of yours has used. My grandmother always did it, and so do I.
