bed sheets

Now, we've all packed a laughable amount of things for a holiday and been mocked by our travel buddies when we show up at the airport.

Many of us have brought a suitcase for an overnight stay, or added extra baggage onto our flights for no reason. Especially in this country, when we can never predict what weather we're going to have.

Forgetting a key item while packing is a deep psychological fear. What if we forget our core makeup items? Our medical bag? Our passport? Ourselves? It's a worrying time.

Statistics from QS Supplies have shown that 10 percent of people take bed sheets to hotel rooms with them, because they won't want to use the provided sheets. Um, okay?

The survey of 1,008 people revealed that many of the population (we won't name names) have taken their own bedding on holiday with them to avoid catching germs or contracting bacterial infections.

5.9 percent of the survey respondents also admitted to taking personal cutlery to a restaurant, meaning one in every 16 eaters in any restaurant you go to have possibly snuck in their own knife and fork.

We can't imagine using up vital bag space to stuff in our own sheets and bedding. Those people clearly have some strange priorities that don't involve bringing five pairs of shoes and a shop's worth of cosmetics.

12 percent of people apparently don't think hotel sheets are washed enough to warrant sleeping in them, but we wonder why?

Unless they're stained or have a weird odour or appearance, we're more than happy to sleep in a big, fluffy hotel bed with extravagant pillows and throws.

Now, if someone could just pay for us to head on a weekend away, preferably to a spa, that would be lovely!


So, let's talk about our cleaning habits.

When we still lived with our parents, they either cleaned up for us, or shouted at us until we got up off our ar*es and actually did some house work.

When you moved out, you were probably hit with a hard dose of reality and realised just how much stuff needed to be cleaned…

And you know, some days you're up for some house work, and some days… not so much.

So, when we heard how often we have to change our bed sheets, we certainly realised that we have failed as adults.

According to Business Insider, we have to change our bed sheets every damn week.

Yep, every seven days.

Now, every two weeks will suffice for us, but a report was recently published which said our beds can be a "botanical park" for bacteria and fungus.

Also, we naturally produce 26 GALLONS of sweat in bed every year.

So, you know… we think we'll be changing our bed sheets more often now.
