I just wanted to say that responding to this thread must have jinked me....
In the last month I have washed the sheets 5 times!!!!!:
Dh was sick, then dd two days later....then the dog peed in the bed!!!

Atleast it was nice enough outside that I could hang them out to dry....nothing like clean fresh sheets dried on the line!!

Once a week for the sheets. Every other week or three weeks for the mattress cover. Pillows every few months.
I would love to hang out doors. Any tips?

Did you know that Oprah has her maid change the sheets everyday! How I would love to sleep on fresh, clean sheets every night! I change mine once a week but by the end of the week they feel sooooo dirty that I can hardly stand it! I would die if I had to sleep in 2 week old sheets! I guess I am a bit complusive about this! :

Depends on how often dd wets the bed! It's nice when we can go a week to two between washings since there's plenty of other laundry everyday.

I wash sheets every Wednesday. After taking biology in 10th grade and seeing what happens every night when you lay down in bed, I almost want to wash them every day!!!!

Ewww...creeps me out just thinking about it now! lol

Sunday is clean sheet day here! Unless of course we are sick or if the sun is going to be out on Saturday or Monday. I really prefer to hang my sheets out versus drying them.

I wash all of our bedding once a week, although dust allergies are a problem in our family, so I probably should be doing them 2x a week.

Bedbugs don't actually live in beds but live in wood. About fifteen years ago I had bedbugs (well so did the other tenants) in my apartment complex. Very interesting creatures indeed. By The Way - they are large enough to detect.
