sheet survey

If you're willing to admit to it (feel free to post anonymously :), how often do you feel you should change the sheets on your bed?

I was raised with "whenever", a previous roommate insisted that anything less often than "once a month" was "gross", and my husband was raised with "once a week", but has managed to stretch his level of toleration to "once every 2 to 3 weeks."

In other news, our landlady is cleaning 50 years' worth of detritus out of our house, and she found the pajamas that her husband wore for their honeymoon in 1954: pink paisley. (?! :) They were in surprisingly good shape. She gave them to us, saying that they should bring us good luck, too. :)


Pre-dog: once every whenever (i.e., when they start to smell bad)
Post-dog: once every whenever (i.e., when they start to smell bad, which, with a particularly stinky dog, is much faster than a pre-dog "whenever")

It tends to be about once every two to three weeks, previously it was a month to six weeks. Guests' sheets are changed right after they leave, of course. Nobody wants to sleep on sheets that someone else did God-only-knows-what on.
