Whoah! Single men wash their sheets’four times a year’

It’s a discovery no woman wants to hear – the average single male changes his sheets just four times a year.

While they strip their beds every 3.1 months on average, unattached women change their linen every two-and-a-half weeks – or 26 times a year – a survey found.
The grubbiest group for keeping sheets fresh are those aged 18 to 25, with more than half claiming to change the bed every three months or less.

Those who washed their sheets once a week were mostly aged between 35 and 50.
People in relationships change their bedclothes most frequently – averaging a change once every 2.3 weeks.

But men still don’t seem to modify their bad habits once in a relationship, as women still end up changing the sheets in 81 per cent of partnerships.
‘We were quite alarmed at the apparent lack of basic hygiene from some respondents,’ said Jed MacEwan, managing director of Ergoflex UK which conducted the survey.

‘Dust mites would find a perfect habitat in such unhygienic bed sheets and they can cause allergic flare-ups, asthma, rhinitis and other physical reactions.’
The survey revealed a variety of reasons for our filthy sheets.

More than 20 per cent of people who changed them every three months’didn’t see the need’ to strip the bed more frequently and 19 per cent’didn’t care’.
Perhaps they should as 17 per cent of single men said a prospective partner had been’put off’ by their rancid bed linen.
