How Often Should You Wash Your Bedding?

While your bedding usually gets a lot of use, there’s a good chance that you aren’t cleaning it as often as you should. Although there is nothing better than laying down in clean sheets, you still may not take the time to wash them regularly.  But how often should you wash your sheets and what is considered the most hygienic approach? Let’s take a look at what the experts say and how taking the time to wash your bedding can help encourage a more restful night of sleep.

In most cases, the average person can get away with only washing their sheets twice a month. However, there are some exceptions that could lead to more frequent trips to the washroom. For instance, if you sweat a lot throughout the night or if someone that has been using the sheets was recently ill, you may want to wash the sheets weekly or immediately depending on what scenario you find yourself in. Do you wash your sheets this frequently? If not, don’t worry! You aren’t alone. According to most survey statistics, 1 in 10 people only wash their sheets monthly.

To put the need for clean sheets into perspective, the average person will spend nearly 1/3 of their life in bed. This results in an accumulation of body sweat, oils and dead skin very quickly. If left, this can result in the build-up of bacteria and dust mites that can quickly make your allergies act up. Cleaning your sheets regularly and airing out your mattress is the best way to eliminate these problems and ensure that you are receiving the best sleep possible each night. So what are you waiting for? Wash your bedding now and make it a regular part of your weekly routine!
