What Is the Best Way to Wash Your Bedding? 

Now you know how often you should be washing your bedding, here are some tips and tricks to keeping them squeaky clean.

The best way to wash your bedding is selecting the hottest setting the material can stand. The hotter the water, the better job it will do taking out all the pathogens and critters that have found their way onto your bedsheets. It’s worth checking the labels before you dive in and destroy your bedding, some linens can’t be washed in high temperatures or put in the dryer without sustaining damage.

A solution to this would be hanging them out to dry outside. Sunlight is a natural antimicrobial agent and kills mites so makes a better option than drying them inside. One final tip would be to iron your bedsheets once they’ve been cleaned. This will further sanitize more sensitive linens without committing them to a long soak in boiling water.

It can feel like washing your bedding is a bit of a drag, but it’s important for health and hygiene. A handy tip to avoid leaving your bedding too long when you can’t be bothered is to have two sets of sheets and pillow and duvet covers. This way, it’s a quick replacement when two weeks comes around, allowing you to wash the dirty bedding another time. Following the advice in our article will help you take care of your health when you head off for a snooze each night, with the bonus of being able to regularly jump into fresh sheets.
