Sheets-How Gross Are They After A Week?
This is kind of a gross topic if you think about it... but I was thinking about it because it's summer, and just generally people sweat more, and might wear a lot less to bed than they do when it's colder out.
So- with more skin on your sheets, and more sweat... and "other" things, how often should you wash your sheets? Once a week? Once a month? Seems like maybe there would be a happy medium in there somewhere. Once a week would be exhausting! That seems like too much. But what are the factors? Do you sleep with a partner? Do you have kids and/or pets in the bed with you? Does it matter?
Did you know that we spend about a third of our lives in bed? Good grief that seems like a lot!
Some say because of dust mites and such (gross) we should wash our sheets once a week. Ugh!! To be honest, there is no way I'm going to wash my sheets every week. It's just not going to happen. How about every 2 weeks? That's seems way more doable.
By the way- at a hotel, if there is a bedspread, that thing goes right on the floor immediately! Yuck!
