Here's another question for ya!

How often do you wash your sheets?

We're supposed to wash our sheets once a week, but do we actually follow through with this?

The answer is NO.

4 in 10 Americans wash their sheets every 2 to 4 weeks.

There's also something else we're supposed to do, according to the study.

Flipping your mattress can add years to its lifespan – provided you have the right mattress for it. If the manufacturer explicitly states it should be flipped, then you should do so every six months, as it can stop the coils from wearing out.

There are a lot of people who don't. Matter of fact, four in 10 Americans don’t flip their mattress, and just 15% flip it once every 6 months.
