How often people wash their bed sheets and blankets is pretty alarming. You're own bed sheets are more than likely disgusting. The next time you sleep in a strangers bed you could be covered in all kinds of bacteria and germs.

According to an article from Business Insider, a scientist from New York University says to avoid any illness or or allergens that one's bed sheets should be washed once a week. The most shocking statistic found was that the average unwashed pillow case could have well over 10 different kinds of fungi living on it.
