It does sound like OCD but I'm not a doctor but feel I'm somewhat OCD myself.  If you have unwanted unrealistic thoughts and then hav to do something to relieve that anxiety it sounds like it may b OCD.  There is some behavioral therapy that might help.  You can also do little at a time things to help for example if there is some dirt in bed.  Leav it. You may feel anxious which is natural but keep reminding yourself that you are fine and take deep breaths.  Try to sleep.  The next day see how u feel.  The point is if you can deal with the anxiety of how it makes u feel when u don't do the compulsive act then you can start to heal yourself.  You will probably see that you are fine and don't have to wash the sheet do much.  You may need to get on meds as well.  My suggestion would be to see a therapist that specializes in OCD.  Hope ths helps.  Peace.

What I suggest u may not feel "fine" right away and that's ok. It's a process. Take baby steps at first and deal w/ the anxiety little at a time.   All the best.
