Curious what the norm is.

Ds1 is allergic to dust mites, so I have changed his weekly since finding out. It's a lot of work (and water!) to change all the sheets for every bed every week, but I also don't want to go too long between changing, yk?

Every two weeks. Seems to work for us. Sometimes more often depending on weather or inclination.

Every week to 2 weeks. It depends on if the weather is nice so I can hang them on the line.

Every week.  I love the feel of clean sheets and would change them everyday if I had the time/energy.

Weekly. Always. For all beds. Sooner if a kid has an accident or something of course.

Usually every week.  Depending on who has been sleeping where or if there was an accident I might just change pillowcases and bottom sheets to lessen the laundry.

We typically do every 2 weeks, and up it to every week in the summer because we get sweaty even while sleeping.  This is only for the flat and fitted sheet + pillowcases - the duvet cover/blanket on top gets washed less often, say once a month maybe? since we're not touching it directly because the flat sheet is in between.  I would change them Sunday night to start the week with fresh sheets and because doing it on a set day helped me to remember.


Now that is our "normal" routine, but since DD has arrived 3 months ago things have been a bit hectic so it is much less often - whenever we remember and have the energy, lol.

I aim for weekly but sometimes it's a bit longer. Mainly because it's a real pain changing the sheets with the bed rails on.

weekly, unless there is an accident. I'm getting a second set of sheets just to help me out with this situation. :) line drying one set of sheets in time is not really possible. :)

Every one or two weeks for our bed. The kids' beds maybe every 3-4 weeks.

I'm with the pp. Every 3-4 weeks or as necessary ( spitting up / potty learning stages are obviously different situations LOL). also I do not make the bed everyday, nor do I always put away fresh laundry - it may take a day or 2to put away all the clean clothes. In admit it. I'm just not that neat in the bed room. However I cannot stand a full sink of dirty dishes! Ha!

We all have our thing. Mine is a spotless counter... Another's is clean sheet day. Variety is the spice of life!

Every 3 or 4 weeks, occasionally a little longer. I don't seem to have the mental or physical energy to do it more even though I'd love a clean, freshly made bed every week. Not to mention we can't afford the extra load of laundry every week.

Every week. sheets, pillow cases and duvet. I can't stand dirty sheets touching my skin. TMI but I love having sex and sheets get messy.  I have 2 sets so I do not have to do laundry every week.
