Each of my three kids has a twin bed with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a quilt, pillowcase and sham. Washing their sheets and quilts is a major project and uses a lot of water and energy. So obviously I don't want to tackle this project very often!
I try to make their beds immediately every morning and don't allow them to go under their covers throughout the day. At night, they take a bath or quick shower before bed, so they are not "dirty" when they get into bed.
Lately I've been washing their bedding every two weeks. But by then, there's a lot of accumulated dust on their sheets and quilts. (Our sheets are navy blue and red, so the dust shows up really well). Should I be washing their bedding weekly instead?
I do feel that I also have to wash their quilts each time, since they tend to get as yucky as the sheets.
So...how often do you wash your kids' bedding?
