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. :-)

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.

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
