Just out of curiosity, how often do ppl wash the;
Doona COVER =
Doona (actual feather/wool doona) =

 Cover, twice a year (when changing from summer to winter doona and vice versa).
Doona, almost never. Think I've had the wool one dry cleaned once. I just hang them on the line in the sun.

 I wrote that we had duck down and feathers, over 2 rows on the clothes line in the middle of summer takes about a day to dry, or in the dryer with 2 tennis balls for a couple of hours. Yes it uses a lot of power, but they are so fluffy and poofy when they come out lol

I've got mine on a roster. Daughter's sheets, doona covers, face washers and towels get washed on the Mondays, son's all get done on Wednesdays and mine get washed on Fridays. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday I wash clothes and Sundays is bath mats, cleaning rags, dish rag, tea towels and anything else that needs washing. Works well for us and I'm not stuck doing 50 loads a day. Win win lol

 How very ocd of you

 Good for you for recognizing this isn't normal behaviour

 I don't get why people have a problem with this. If I had that much to wash, I'd have a schedule too. I'd love to be that organised.

Ha ha no. Once every 2 months probably. Anything nasty happens on the sheets.

 That is disgusting

 Just because it's not what you do, doesn't make it disgusting. I probably change mine even less often (unless something actually gets on it, like kid spew etc). Don't care what you think, it's not like you are sleeping in my bed.

 To the 'disgusting 'response -why should you care? You're not sleeping in the bed. Who gives a f**k what you think. How does someone elses decision affect your life??????

I change my doona cover everytime I change my sheets. My doona covers match my sheets

 Me too, once a week.

I change sheets and doona cover every Sunday and then wash doona every 2nd or 3rd Sunday as we don’t really use it.
