making your bed
« on: July 18, 2019, 11:59:27 AM »
In a couple of his update posts, micah mentioned "making a bed" and changing sheets regularly. I found that odd, but perhaps it is not odd at all! Do you guys make your bed everyday - for me, it is just part of getting up. Really, it takes like less than 15 seconds! I don't think I was always this disciplined, but I've been doing it regularly since at least high school.

My wife changes sheets in the house and she does it every 2 or 3 weeks or as needed. How often "should" you do it?

My wife gets up after I do.  But, we don't make the bed like I did in the military (all tucked in).  Instead we just pull the sheets and covers up to the pillows.  If we are having guests over we'll do a nicer job tucking.

Interestingly enough, there is some talk that immediately making a bed traps in heat that could allow a more favorable environment for organisms.  Feels like if you are changing the sheets as needed it shouldn't be much of a problem.

We changes sheets about every 2-3 weeks which seems fine to me.

All I heard was never make the bed, it's better for hygiene.

I've heard the 'don't make the bed' thing before.  I'm typically up first but we make the bed most of the time.  We wash the sheets probably once a week or every other week.

that's what we do as well.

Yeah, neither have I. Might be one of those things a lazy person would come up with to justify not making a bed!

You know, you use a lot of judgmental language.

We generally don't make the bed unless we have guests coming over in which case we'll lay the comforter over the bed. We don't use a top sheet and don't ever tuck and I'm gonna say it's for hygiene but actually it's not we're just lazy asses and only change sheets once a month or so when we remember.
