How often do you change your sheets? Wash your towels, wash cloths, dish towel or dish cloths? Here is the Good Question from the other night.
I love to have clean fresh sheets every week but I’ll admit I wait two weeks. It’s very hard for me to change my sheets. My bedroom has “those” old farmhouse ceilings and in half of my room I can’t stand up straight. When I had a normal room with a normal ceiling, I did change my sheets every week. It was so easy to pull them off, throw them in the washer, hang them on the line and go to work. It only took minutes to put them back on but now I don’t.
Bath towels and wash cloths. I wash ours twice a week I suppose. I grab then when I’m doing a load just usually to fill the machine. I don’t use a wash cloth but Paul does and I usually replace it for him every other day.
Kitchen stuff is different. I find myself now not really using wash cloths or kitchen towels very often. I know how gross sponges and dish cloths can get and I hate the way they smell after a day or so but I never EVER thought you were supposed to use a new one everyday. I’ve been using a couple of paper-towels for about the last year or so to wash things like my knives that shouldn’t go in the dishwasher and then wipe the table and counters and stove off. Then I use paper towels to dry my dishes. You’d be surprised how tough paper towels are now.
How about you? How often do you take a clean towel? How often do you wash your bedclothes? Do you replace your dishcloth everyday?
