Now, people are particularly worried about their health and house cleaning methods. Antibacterial cleansers are definitely one of the best-selling products on personal shelves.
What's on the sheets that are not washed for a week?
1 Dandruff and other skin cells are shed from the human body, and these shed cells are also food for mites. The mites and their excrement will gradually accumulate on the sheets.
2 Children like to lie in bed to watch TV and eat snacks, so some food residues, oil stains, residues, etc. will inevitably fall on the microfiber toddler sheet.
3 Sweat discharged by the human body, hair dropped by pets will accumulate on the bed sheet, and other daily activities and behaviors, which will undubtedly increase the number of bacteria and mites on the bed sheet.
Essential: If you must maintain good hygiene, it is absolutely important to clean your sheets regularly: remember to clean your hair and shower regularly.
How to wash bedding?
Sheets, such as sheets, pillowcases and towels. If it is generally recommended to clean at least once every two weeks, in the current situation, we of course recommend that you replace it at least once a week. There are also two reasons:
Because they are used continuously in large quantities, you need to clean your sheets and towels more frequently.
There are usually more than one person in the family who use towels and pillowcases, so the chance of spreading bacteria usually increases.
Pillowcases should be replaced and washed more frequently than sheets and quilts. This is because there is more dirt on the hair than on other parts of the body, not to mention direct contact with the facial skin. You sleep 8 hours a day, that is, your face is in close contact with the pillowcase for 1/3 of the day.
Before cleaning the dirty paper, you should also pay attention to some other things:
It is still important to remember the handling labels of fabric items, as warm water may damage the fabric. If you have a top line of bedding, such as ultra luxury silky satin duvet cover set, then real warm water may directly damage them.
Do not soak or wash with hot water when cleaning. Now, many people like to soak and clean. They think washing the dishes after soaking can make them cleaner. In fact, the effect is the same. Soaking for a long time will make our sheets fade. Wash it with hot water to damage it. After all, bedding should be washed frequently, so you should pay more attention.
Dry the sheets completely. After the cleaning cycle is over, do not leave the sheets in the cleaning machine. A humid and comfortable environment is very suitable for the continuous spread of bacteria.
Summer: In the hot summer, people usually do not lay sheets, but choose cool pads. If you use bed sheets in summer, even users who use cushions will change the bed more frequently, usually once a week. Take care to clean the mat regularly.
Winter: In the cold winter, sheets do not need to be changed frequently. Usually, sheets and duvet covers can be changed once a month. Of course, you can also decide how often the sheets are changed according to your preferences.
Spring and autumn: In spring, the temperature gradually increases, and many bacteria are easy to multiply. However, in autumn, the temperature is just right for bacteria to multiply. At this time, sheets and quilts should be changed and washed frequently. Change sheets and quilts every two weeks and wash them.
All in all, there is no strict timetable for how often sheets should be changed. It really depends on your lifestyle.
