How Often Should You Wash Your Bedding?
Knowing how often to wash bedding is as important a question as to how to wash bed sheets themselves. Dirt and dust can quickly build up and while deciding how often to wash bed sheets might be a matter of personal preference, unfortunately, we’re not alone in our beds – we settle down at night with microscopic dust mites, among other things.
Dust mites aren’t the only hidden surprises lurking in our sheets, and unfortunately, we’ve only ourselves to blame for their presence. Every night we shed a million skin cells, accompanied by oil and sweat. If you don’t wash your bedding regularly, this adds to your bed’s appeal for mites – but is less than pleasant for human occupants.
