Hi, absolutely not; toss them or use them for shop rags Etc. Buy new sheets and wash them good before useing them. In our motel days we brought our own sheets from home. In my opinion, I think used bedding is the same as wearing used underwear. If the mattress looks good I would buy a new mattress cover and new pillows. If I was, or if your are, dirt poor and truely can't afford new bedding then wash and bleach the heck out of them.

Yes, I am poor. My vintage Airstream trailer keeps me that way.

I have 3 treasured handmade antique quilts passed down through the family, I use them all. Who knows who slept under them in the last 80 years? I also have an antique navajo blanket that I bought at auction in NM, that I use for a throw. God knows where that has been. All have been cleaned. And I use bedding (and, towels, etc) regularly in my guest room that people other than my family sleeps on.....when they are used, I toss them in the washer, get them clean and put them back on the bed. Wouldn't dream of buying new every time. A friend gave me her used comforter when she changed decor in her bedroom. The list goes on. To each his own, but I think once it is washed and clean, there is no reason to toss out something that has been used. My kids wore a lot of hand-me-downs and pass-along clothes. But then I was raised thrifty, waste not want not, use it up, make it do, recycle, all that. Being thrifty is the ony way I can afford a vintage Airstream! Or vintage money pit house, for that matter!
