Hidden Dangers In Your Bed Sheets

It is very important to wash bedding regularly. It is said that we spend a third of our life sleeping. And since we spend so much time in a bedroom is clear that we must also keep it clean. There are things that can hide in bedding, some of which you never thought of that could become a threat to your health.

If you will put your bedding at microscope, will almost terrify you. Microscopic mites and other pests live, multiply and die in the sheets on which you sleep every night. The only way to keep the creatures under control is to wash bedding frequently. Otherwise you will develop allergies or you will weaken your immune system.

Among the sheets you will find dead cells from your own skin. Millions of such cells  are lost every day and are the ideal snack for microscopic creatures that I mentioned above. Secreted by the body, fats are absorbed by bedding, as well as human sweat and other fluids. Add to this, the crumbs, especially if you’re the kind of person who use to eat in bed.

How often should you wash your bed linen?

Every month is not enough to remove the problems. It is best to wash your bed linen at least once every two weeks, if not weekly. Pillows should be washed twice a year. They can “grow” fungi and bacteria that cause diarrhea, asthma or bronchitis. If you never washed  your pillows, would be good to think to buy new ones.

When you take care of someone sick, bed linen have to be changed daily. In this way you help the patient to recover more easily in an environment protected from germs.
