About Half Of Single Men Wash Their Sheets Every Four Months

Finding a nice single guy isn’t always easy, but a new survey shows that even if you do, this may give you pause...

A new survey finds:

  • 45% of single men have waited up to four months to wash their sheets, which means about three times a year.
  • 12% actually say they only wash them “when they remember.”
  • Women are much more hygienic when it comes to sheets, with 62% saying they change them every two weeks.
  • Only 25% of men do the same.
  • When those single men couple up they do seem to get better with their sheets.
  • 35% of couples say they wash their sheets every three weeks.

Why do people wash their sheets so infrequently?

  • Top reasons include:
    • Forgetting (67%)
    • Not being bothered (35%)
    • Not having other clean sheets to use (22%)
    • They shower at night so sheets don’t get dirty (18%)

How often should people be changing their sheets?

  • Well, according to one expert, sheets, bed linens and pillowcases need to be washed once a week.
  • Blankets and duvets should be washed every two to three months.
  • Pillows can go four to six months without a washing.
