        OMG I'm feeling gross...it's probably about every other week for me. We both work nights (11-7) so we sleep odd hours and we're sooo busy. I think my wedding resolution will be to change them more often.

          Somewhere in between every two weeks and once a month, basically whenever I have time and I actually remember lol

          And like the other girls have said, it hasn't killed me yet, so I'm not too concerned lol

            Daily? That's crazy! But it's articles like this that I could totally understand doing it daily! LOL!

              Hmm... I think I wash mine every 3-4 weeks - but I'm off to wash them right now after reading this (that, and to move my toothbrush to another room alltogether!!)

                Hey girls, while we're talking laundry, can somebody tell me what "permanent press" and "heavy duty" is ? I always wondered...

                In France the machines ask you to chose between "cotton", "synthetic", "delicate"... I have no idea what "permanent press" might mean

                  You can add me to the every 3 weeks group. A few years ago on Oprah, she did this special on germs and household things like the sheets. Oprah said you are supposed to change them every 2-3 days. I guess when you have a staff of a thousand you can do that! The grossest thing I learned from that episode though, is that your kitchen sink has more germs than your toilet. I'm so paranoid about my friggin kitchen sink now, I am forever scrubbing it with bleach!

                    Now I want to vomit...I was googling articles about germs and found this...
                    Any time you transfer underwear from the washer to the dryer, you’re getting E. coli on your hands. Just one soiled undergarment can spread bacteria to the whole load and machine.

                    Reduce the risk: Run your washer at 150 degrees (you can check the temperature of your washing-machine water with a candy thermometer) and wash whites with bleach (not the color-safe type; it doesn’t pack the same punch), which kills 99.9 percent of bugs. Transfer wet laundry to the dryer quickly so germs don’t multiply, wash underwear separately (there’s about a gram of feces in every pair of dirty underwear) and dry for at least 45 minutes. Wash your hands after laundering.
