How Often Should You Change Your Sheets?

Posted on 04-04-2016 by Hongwei Lee

We often think that our room’s pretty clean - your floor, table and shelves are all dust-free (or at least we’d like to think they are). But just before you give yourself a pat on your back and go to sleep, ask yourself when was the last time you put your sheets in the laundry.



If your answer was more than a week ago then it’s time for you to get out of bed and change a new set of sheets. Set your washing machine to wash with hot water of about 130 to 150 degrees and use a hot dryer to stop germs from breeding in your comfortable nest.

Pillows and Comforters

Apart from your sheets, there are pillows and comforters on your bed too and you should wash them at least four times a year. Dust and maybe even mites might invade your comfy cushions and cause allergies and pimples to form.
