Survey Asks Britons How Often Bedsheets Are Changed

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene.

A new survey in Britain is airing that country's dirty laundry. The mattress company Ergoflex asked Britons how frequently they changed their sheets. Among men aged 18 to 25, more than half said they put fresh sheets on just four times a year.
