    I like to change our sheets twice a week, only because I love sleeping on fresh sheets. Doona cover gets changed every two weeks.

    Pillows, never.. I just buy new. Quilt, before and after winter.
    Skin particles, body fluids, dust (I live rural), husband is filthy after work..even after a shower.

    It all seeps into the pillow/doona.

    Feels sooo amazing!! mmmmm, fresh sheets.... drool

    I usually do sheets and doona cover once a week. I suffer from eczema and if I leave them too long then I find myself itching as soon as I get in the bed. I shower before bed, wish DH would too...

    Once a week all bedding gets stripped from the bed and washed and while the beds are bare the frames get cleaned and mattresses get vacuumed.

    This!

    DH is about to start working 3 weeks away, 1 week home. I know I'll be able to put clean sheets on the bed the day he goes and then not have to change them until the day before he gets back.

    2-3 times a week! I have a thing for clean crisp sheets. I have a few sets I alternate. Nothing better than a nice fresh bed 😊

    Hmmm....reading this is making me feel lazy :/ lol
    I'd like say I do it weekly like everyone else but tbh I only do it when I cbf...and thats definitely not weekly. I'd prob be lying if I said fortnightly too, so I'd say maybe 3 weeks D: BUT I shower right before bed and dont sweat much in my sleep (dont think I do) so really im maintaining them rather than replacing them with fresh ones...right!?!

    New personal challenge for me - change sheets once a week!!!
