Just curious what others do.
I have a king size bed so when I do my bedding it is at least 2 loads of laundry. When I do my pillows it is 2 or 3 more loads (I have a lot of pillows). I do the bedding a lot more often then the pillows.
Weekly for the sheets and comforter, I wash my pillows every three weeks or so. It depends. I go to the laundry matt though, I know I am one of the few people that LOVE the laundry matt go in get done go home I can was ten loads in two hours.
I wash the sheets weekly.
The blankets and comforter - maybe once or twice a season.
Pillows - I get new ones about twice a year.
Sheets -- weekly
Duvet cover, extra blanket, shams -- monthly
Pillows, duvet, and mattress pad -- a couple times a year
Sheets - weekly
Blankets - monthly
Pillows - every few months
I've never washed my pillows. Haven't ever really thought about it. Hmm. I have not been able to find a pillow that is comfortable for me - easy to be too fat or too thin. So I buy a pillow or two every year. I wash sheets once or twice a month, more in the summer. We shower before bed, again in the am and of course again if we work out if it's not before the morning shower, so they don't get very dirty.
Pillow cases get washed once a week and I'd do it more if I had time. I hate thinking of laying my face where my hair products have been.
Sheets - Weekly (Sunday night) or friday with we're going to be gone for the weekend
Comforter/Duvet - Every other week
Pillows - I throw them out ever 3 months and buy new. I just buy cheap target pillows. Throw pillows don't get dirty
I usually do not get time in working days so I wash my bed sheets and pillow covers in weekends. I take boiled water,mix washing powder in it then dip my bed sheets and pillow covers into it for 4-5 hours then after it brushes them an wash them with clean water.
Sheets I try to do weekly but with the king bed I get a little lazy and it's usually every 2 weeks.
I have 2 kinds of pillows: down and tempurpedic so both are a pain to wash but the covers get washed about once a month.The duvet is every couple of months
The comforter (also down) should be dry cleaned at minimum once a year, but 2 times is best for it.
We change our sheets once a week. Pillow cases sometimes twice a week, if not once a week. Our comforter, once every couple weeks.
Sheets: twice weekly
Pillows: I steam clean these weekly
Mattress pad: weekly
Mattress: steam clean and vacuum weekly
Yes. I have germ issues.
My mum does mine, but she always does it while im not in and she uses the same sheets so I can only tell when I get into bed i its all soft
She does it once a week, usually on a sunday morning, love my nice cozy bed on sunday nights ^_^
Alright I would consider myself a pretty sanitary person (okay a neat freak), but washing pillows? Do you mean pillow CASES or the actual pillows? Am I supposed to be washing my pillows? omg. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS??
I wash our sheets and pillow cases at least once a week...normally I don't make it more than 5 days before I feel the need to wash them. Mattress pad, blanket and comforter are at least once a month. Pillows are done seasonally.
This all changes if one of us has been sick...if that's the case, everything gets done. We are lucky to have have a high efficiency washer-top loading with no agitator and dryer. I try to flutter along with FlyLady so usually Sunday morning is usually when I wash the sheets because DH is home and he will move them to the dryer. (He can't be trusted to not put clothes and delicates in the dryer that shouldn't go in!)
