Exxactly. That’s why my Fiance and I don’t go to bed without showering first and anything that has been outside doesn’t touch the bed. We also do laundry once a week, which includes stripping the entire bed. Sheets, pillow cases, blanket.
It may seem extreme to some, but living in NYC, my old crappy apartment had bedbugs. Once you get them, they’re extremely hard to get rid of, even if you “exterminate” them. My only solution was to get rid of everything and move. 🙁

@red_rose: You could wash the sheets & towels at the same time. If you do it right after the person leaves, make the bed & then fold the towels and put them on the bed for the next guest. If you have a guest coming & there’s no towels on the bed, you need to wash the sheets!
I had friends who constantly had guests over and I was a frequent visitor (maybe 2-3 times a month!). They would sometimes say “Laura spent the night last night. Do you want me to change the sheets?” SO AWKWARD! lol I don’t want to tell you if I think your friend is dirty or not!

It depends on my mood and how long the guest stayed… But if the guest(s) stayed a couple days I usually wash the sheets (and duvet) before the next guest comes so they have freshly washed sheets. BUT, if the person stayed for a while (my sister visited for 10 days) then I wash them all after they leave, then again when the next guest comes… There’s nothing like clean sheets! 🙂

I am a both kind of girl. After and before.
I wash them after and then again before they come. Our guests are a few times a year and I dont want dirty sheets sitting there for months at a time.
I also dont want someone to sleep on sheets that have been sitting there for months since we have cats and a dog (although the animals are not allowed in the guest room)
