In a study that perfectly defines the difference between the genders, scientists have found out that at an average, single men wash their bedsheets four times a year. It’s particularly discomforting how most of my guy friends found this quite believable but the women, on the other hand, found it disgusting.

According to a study conducted by Ergoflex UK, Jed MacEwan said

“We were quite alarmed at the apparent lack of basic hygiene from some respondents. Dust mites would find a perfect habitat in such unhygienic bed sheets and they can cause allergic flare-ups, asthma, rhinitis and other physical reactions.”

Single men between the age group of 18 to 25 have admitted that they would change their bedsheets once every three months. Men between the age of 35 to 50 change their bedsheets once a week.

People in relationships change their bedsheets once every fortnight. Those in a relationship were found saying that it was their female counterpart who’d force them into changing the bedsheet this often.


While most men might not find this surprising, we understand that this is kind of a disgusting revelation. 

So, what is the longest you’ve gone without washing your bedsheet? Do let us know in the comment section.
