When was the last time you washed your beddings?

Old folks used to say that we are not supposed to do anything ‘heavy’ during Holy Week. Yet I did the laundry and washed the bedsheets, blankets, pillowcases. Thankfully, no duvet covers this time, but the feeling is still the same. You know what I mean if you’re the one who changes your beddings at home. Once everything was hung and dried, I mentally and physically prepared myself to do the heavy lifting and all. I was sweating when I finally finished the task. Did I do what the photo above say? Definitely! Lolll How about you? How often do you change your beddings?

Pillowcases get changed every two days. Sheets every three days and the comforter once a week. (I change things often because of my allergies.)

I also do it almost at the same frequency rate. My elder daughter and husband have dust allergy. And that's one reason for that besides my OCD for cleaning

@vandana7 how often do you do yours? My son who lives at home does it when ever, but it is more than 3 weeks every time

I do them every week, that is enough, but if I had my way, I would certainly wash them every day because I love the clean smell.

I try to change them every week but sometimes it takes me a bit longer. 12 pillowcases, 3 bedsheets and 4 comforters. Definitely not easy

Our bedding gets washed weekly. The comforters go to the dry cleaner every couple of months thanks to the down feathers.

I have some sort of OCD when it comes to cleaning. I do things more frequently than what others too. Also, my elder daughter and husband have dust allergy and so that is another reason. Pillow cases every third or fourth day, bedsheet once a week and comforters or bedcover once in a week or ten days. I also vaccum the mattresses once a week.

@sol_cee I have been doing it for more than two decades. It's fallen into a pattern and habit. Yes, sometimes we don't stick to the schedule if something else pops up. But mostly we go with the schedule.
