How often do you change your sheets?

Asked by bulbatron9 (3707points) June 3rd, 2008 from iPhone

Honestly! Do you go a couple of weeks, or no? My wife and I go one week!

Depends on sexual activity

Not very often.

buster's avatar

never. someone eventually does it for me.

Maybe once a year, depending on what happens. If I spill something on my bed I’ll change the sheets immediately, although I can easily go a year without changing my sheets for any circumstance.

Well… Who gets the wet spot?

wizard's avatar

Leave it.

buster's avatar

i dont wanna sleep in a wet spot.

Bigtechdude's avatar

Do it on her side. And don’t change the sheet.

I have always preferred to change them everyday, at most every other day, but my husband thinks it is a bit much, so I am working on once a week. But I still prefer daily.

I do not have a compulsion, but you know you don’t wear you underwear more than one day…

@robmandu, so how many are living in my bed if I haven’t changed my bed sheets for exactly 13 months?

babiturtle36's avatar

every Sunday, its part of the cleaning schedule I have.

PupnTaco's avatar

Weekly, every Sunday. Clean, fresh sheets = mmmmmmm

robmandu's avatar

@Wiz, no idea… I’ve heard anecdotally that the average mattress can double in weight due to the buildup of dead dustmites, sloughed-off skin cells, dust, and other detritus.


arnbev959's avatar

same as buster. never, but every two months or so i’ll come home and find clean sheets on the bed.

I don’t really like new sheets. It takes a night or two to break them in.

babiturtle36's avatar

oh hell no, I’m not about to sleep on a wet spot, haha

rowenaz's avatar

EVERY Sunday. and I throw the blankets and pillows in the dryer for 30 minutes on high to kill the dust mites, about once a month.

wizard's avatar

It’s not like dust mites are death-threatening. I happen to live with them, thank you very much.

richmarshall's avatar

Every week. I had a friend in college who’s dorm mate didn’t change the sheets all year. Once word got around people would start to pour beer (and worse) on the end of his bed…........he still didn’t change them.


rowenaz's avatar

dust mites are deadly if you are allergic to them, their crap, and you have asthma.

Im also like buster. I never change my sheets by my own doing it just kind of happens. I usually not really a fan of this because its a pain in the ass to put them back on and my bed doesnt really get dirty.

susanc's avatar

We used to change them very seldom, maybe once a month or five weeks, because
we liked the way each other smelled. Now I’m alone and I change them more often,
because they don’t smell right any more.

DeezerQueue's avatar

Weekly to bi-weekly.

iceblu's avatar

It’s going on….2 months? =X

danny's avatar

once a month about…I shower at night just before bed. If one showered in the morning I would expect them to clean the sheets much more often.

syz's avatar

About every 2 weeks

scamp's avatar

Every Tuesday night.

gooch's avatar

Every Sunday

bunkin's avatar

I sleep on a made bed. so hardly ever… the comforter might actually get washed more than the sheets

XrayGirl's avatar

ok, gross, we have spores on us, no matter how clean we are, and we “shed” microscopic bits of skin, AGAIN no matter how clean and healthy we are….EEEEWWWWW… I change my sheets 2 x a week, and if I am sick I change them every nite until I am over my flu or cold.

sarapnsc's avatar

What do you people do if you make love more than once a week? Do you still only change them once a week?

El_Cadejo's avatar

@sarapnsc nah fuck it :)

rowenaz's avatar

It depends on how enjoyable it was…..

tiffyandthewall's avatar

for some reason i’ve accumulated like 15 sets of sheets recently (i’m blaming those sales at ross and my aunt’s obsessive shopping habits) but i don’t really change them very often. if i happen to crash after i haven’t showered in awhile and feel gross, i’ll change my sheets and shower and whatnot, but if i’ve gone to bed clean and showered every night, i don’t really feel the need to.

Jamspoon's avatar

If I make love, I don’t bother changing the sheets. If on the other hand myself and another person fuck, the sheets get changed.
