Fight the Flu with Clean Bedding
If you are like most people, you don’t have the time or resources required to get through a period of sickness that has you holed up in bed all day. And, although your workplace is the most likely place that you will contract some sort of sickness, your bedroom could also be a culprit depending on your cleaning habits. In this article, we will look at some of the ways you can fight the flu this winter by focusing on maintaining clean and sanitized bedding.
You may be surprised to learn that nearly 26 years of an average lifespan are spent lying in bed. Unfortunately, if you have a habit of jumping in bed to take a nap after a long day at work while still wearing the same clothes or not washing your hands, you could be brining germs home that are left to incubate in your sleeping quarters, further exposing you to the flu or other viral illnesses.
If you or your sleeping partner become sick, it is important to immediately was the sheets in hot water with an appropriate cleaner to eliminate any traces of the flu virus that may be present. If you have a nightstand or other furniture near the bed, you may want to clean these at the same time as well. Disinfecting both the surfaces and your bedding will help ensure that you and any one else that shares the bed are protected from exposure or re-exposure.
Clean bedding can also help fight the flu by limiting the number of allergens or dust that may be present in the room. This ensures that fresh air is available and the body has the right environment to achieve optimal healing and limit the length of time that sickness occurs. Stay safe and fight the flu this season with clean bedding and a clean bedroom.
