When we were 3 It was new towel after every shower/ bath, new flannel every day, new facecloth every day... Then we became 4!
I change the beds once a week or rather dh2b does as that's his job!
What' s a flannel? Just out of curiosity.

Towels - washed every use.
Pajamas - every use.
Sheets - twice a week.

We do a ton of laundry. But I am kind of weird about it, so I want it that way.

Great. Now I'm not going to be able to sleep for worrying my face will brush up against a privates-contaminated part of the bed. Gotta' go wash the sheets again! Thanks!

You are welcome.

Just had to feed into the paranoia.

My mother (on meds and having less issues with OCD) recently mentioned that she still must wash their sheets at least every other day so they are fresh enough because after all these years of obsessive cleaning that's what she and my dad are used to. (They both bathe before bed and wear pajamas.) I told her to buy a bottle of Febreze and he would never know the difference.

Only on the DIS will a person find a 13 page thread about how often people wash their towels.

We use 1 towel per shower, and throw the towels on the laundry pile 1-2x/week. PJs get worn for 2 nights (I shower before bed, so I'm clean when I put the pjs on), and sheets get washed every week-ish.
That is so true. I grew up with well water. I sure shower & do laundry more frequently than my parents do. You can't get some people to shower daily. Just saying.

I know it is a generation thing too. They were not raised to shower daily. They just wash up using the sink daily. And shower weekly. As soon as I became a teen, I started showering daily. My dad was always yelling about using too much (well) water. Still does. They don't even have a dishwasher because he says it uses too much water.

We re-use our towels a couple of times before washing, around 2-3 times.

I mostly just dry my arms and legs, swipe my back and then put on a terry cloth robe to absorb the rest of the moisture. Then I wrap the towel around my head. Not to be gross, but I don't really get the towel up into private places so that is not an issue. If you wash properly you shouldn't have to worry about any part of your body touching your towel.

I use baby powder before I get dressed to make sure my underwear doesn't stick to me

Sheets get changed once a week, pj's are worn once or twice. DH showers twice a day, in the morning and before bed. I showered twice a day when I was working, now that I'm home I shower in the late afternoon. The idea of going to bed dirty grosses me out, my mother insisted on clean feet at all times, lol!
