reducing linen laundering

changing sheets, making bed

I wash my sheets every two weeks, to save energy and water. Since I’m a single woman who sleeps alone, I can flip the sheets after one week, and “dirty” both sides of the bed before laundering the sheets.

I first heard about the idea of washing bed linens less frequently in one of Elaine St. James’s simplicity books.


How could you make your laundry schedule simpler? How much easier would your life be if you followed through on it?
