I don't vacuum EVERY time I change the sheets, but I do frequently. I know why.......Blech!:)
Sue - I do it once a month... And today was the day :) Scary stuff!If there are any who don't then I reckon I'll do a blog post on it LOL
We don't every time we change the sheets, maybe once every few months. Probably not as often as we should. I think we do it because we have cats and figure it gets up some extra cat that might be lurking...but I'm guessing there might be another "ugly" reason?? ;-)
extra cat HAIR, not extra cats, lol.
1st Man - Stay tuned... ;)
Don't have a vacuum so that leaves me out.
David - Hmmm - do you have a broom?
Got two of those Dani.
Stay tuned - you may need them more for than you think you do... :)
Now I want to go vacuum and wash the pillows :(
Mrs Mac - LOL
Uh Oh...I'm feeling VERY scared right now. I've never thought to vacuum my matress. I've got a mattress cover that gets washed 4 times a year (maybe). Go ahead tell me why.(peeking through my fingers in horror....)
Tami - Are you sure...?
Dust mites, right?
Frogdancer - :)
Lol, I answered this, Dani, then thought it was a bit rude putting my "two cents" worth in so I deleted it! I'll wait to see if you and I clean mattresses, and other household furniture, for the same reason :).I replace my bed pillow every 12-18 months as I have an unconcious sleeping habit that only a certain amount of washing and sunlight can erase *blush*.Cheers,Robyn
Robyn - :)
Oh I know this is probably going to "gross" me out but ... yeah ... I want to know why. I don't vacuum my mattress regularly but I have a feeling I will be. :-)
SM - I think you will be doing so too LOL
Not every week but a couple of times a month. AND!!! I spray it with a mixture of vinegar and EO. How good am I?! My concern is bedbugs...We don't have them, have never had them, but I read something, somewhere, sometime...I figure I'll get anything there but really do it just because I can and not out of any *fear* that we will be attacked by anything.Barb.
Barb - :)
Please spare us. We don't want to know why. We'll start vacuuming now!
Jody - Perhaps you shouldn't read the next post then :)
It has never crossed my mind to vacuum my mattress. I am afraid to ask why but I am sure I wont like the reply...
Mr Belinda - Stay tuned :)
Lol, you did a sex change operation on me!! jajajajaja :D
Ms Belinda - Typo - LOL so sorry...
No problem Dani, I sure enjoyed a good laugh and I look forward to your post :-)
Change the sheets? Just kidding, mine do get changed once in a blue moon. I WOULD like to know why I should vacuum the matress when I change the sheets though, because I don't know, and I do like to learn something new every day. Cleaning really is'nt my thing but I do try sometimes.
FCH - Stay tuned, I can assure you, you will learn something new :)
No and no. 1st no because I never feel like my vacuum cleaner is actually all that clean. 2nd no because I'm sure its because of something nasty!
Leigh - LOL - don't actually know which is worse - dirty vacuum cleaners or un-vacuumed mattresses... The "Yea's outweigh the "Nay's" - so please don't read today's post.
