I know I started with this line of thinking too. I was like “every rug, quilt, throw, pillow sham, blah de blah” Impossible. But the more I read, and thought and reflected the more I realized I needed to change my routine. It is very easy to imagine the top layer on the bed (regardless of what it is) being exposed to lots of icky things. People drooling in their sleep, wiping their mouths and then resting their hand on the comforter top. I don’t have a sofa and I changed my desk chair to a leather look vinyl for cleanliness and design purposes.
This is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read on the forum. Don’t wash your comforter, Brandt, it’s not the end of the world. But no need to justify it with ludicrous statements.
