Single men and bedding changing...

According to the UK survey reported on in the below article, 55 percent of male respondents aged 18-25 only changed their bed linens about 4 times per year.

Please say it ain't so!! I certainly don't want to believe it. Anyway I am trusting all the fine gents of EF were and are much more stringent in their housekeeping. Right?!?

Come to think of it, I can remember an old boyfriend "back in the days" that didn't even appear to have bedsheets (back in the "grunge" days, this seemed strangely acceptable). So perhaps I should not be so surprised. Anyhow, maybe this info should get out there as a public health message - would be girlfriends (or boyfriends) may want to know....

Re: Single men and bedding changing...

Why would you need to change the bed when you arent using it this age group would have the bed they are using changed by the owner of the bed

I read this statement too, and I wondered how they found out this statistic?
