    We strip the complete bed weekly, change everything over and throw the used linen in wash.
    Because I fold multiple sets and keep them in linen closet, they get pretty wrinkly, so I just use the steamer on it all. Even my older girls have started steaming their fresh linen.

    Edit: we have no pets, but have a 4 year old. Also we work shift work so our bed is slept in sometimes 24/7 rotating between DH and I. And I've been sweating lots while pregnant!!

    Wash the fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillowcases once per week and usually dry in the dryer. I wash the doona cover about once per month and the blanket about once a year!

    I wash all linen once a week, we don't use a top sheet or I probably wouldn't bother with the quilt cover so often!

    I don't even own an iron, I just fold as it comes out of the dryer/off the line.

    Just curious, why do some not use a top sheet? Isn't it easier to wash a top sheet more often than a doona cover?

    I find if I use a top sheet it ends up crumpled up at the bottom of the bed anyway - kinda defeats the purpose of putting it on.

    Loool ironing sheets, not in a gazillion years

    Mine all get washed once a week and hung out to dry. We have a top and bottom sheet but cause of our cats the doona cover gets washed every week as well.

    I wash my sheets and pillowcases weekly. Doona cover when it looks dirty. Could be every 3-4 months, perhaps more often in winter as it's tucked right up around our necks, arms etc.

    I iron my pillowcases, I iron my Doona cover. If my sheets are going straight back on my bed, I don't iron (but only cos DH was giving me such a hard time about ironing my sheets). If they are going in the linen cupboard they do. Despite hating ironing, I hate the look of crumpled clothes, linen more. I expect sheets at a hotel to be ironed, so I would never put crumpled, un ironed sheets on our guest bed. Slightly OT but I can't stand the look if people going out/ to work with crumpled, un ironed shirts etc, it just looks lazy. It's one of my main gripes with society haha

    I have never ironed a sheet before. I was curious to know if others iron their dooona cover because sometimes I think mine looks a bit wrinkly.

    I change the sheets every 3rd day, it all goes on the dryer and comes out crinkle free so no need to iron. I don't even own an iron lol!
