Island, I despair of you :-S ;-) :-D

Only 40% wash the sheets once a week.


Island Report 21 Feb 2013 22:20

Edit sorry silly prescriptive text or a mistype :-D

Yuck!! :-0

Pillow cases everyday - bottom sheet every other day in summer. Every week in winter.


Lyndi Report 21 Feb 2013 22:16

And some of us 'livealoners' can just roll to the other side of the bed for week 2 ;-)
I call it being eco-friendly - nothing to do with being a lazy mare :-D

Once a month!!?? ewwwwwwwww!

In our hot summer we only have the bottom sheet (no need for anything else) and it often gets changed every day. That includes pillowcases & pillow protectors.


Island Report 21 Feb 2013 22:06

I would have told them once a year - whether they need it or not :-D


JoyBoroAngel Report 21 Feb 2013 22:04

once a month ***FAINTS*** :-(


Kay???? Report 21 Feb 2013 22:02

So do I Ann and when its hot the bottom sheet can be everyday,,,,,,,,mind if the survey was for single men or live alone people I can understand the once a month....


AnninGlos Report 21 Feb 2013 21:54

I have just read that according to a recent British survey, almost one in five people only wash their bed linen monthly. Strange the things they find out in surveys. We wash ours weekly. :-)
