Having Clean Sheets Is Part of Hygiene
We all have a tight relationship with our beds. We spend time with it about 60% of our time within a 24-hour period. That is a lot of time to expose ourselves to built-up dirt, oil, sweat, and other gunk on our bed sheets and linens.
Light housekeeping is required to keep our homes clean and tidy. But regular changing and washing of sheets must always be part of it. Clean sheets lead to clean bodies, thus, encouraging and maintaining proper hygiene!
If you do not practice frequent sheet changes, you are putting yourself at risk of allergies, asthma, skin breakouts, and bacterial or fungal infections. Clean sheets are also vital in achieving quality sleep that runs for about seven to eight hours.
So how often should you change and wash your sheets? Experts recommend that this should be done once a week. Some people might even have to do so more often to prevent triggers in their allergies or other health problems. It is also recommended that we wash our linens often during the hot summer months. If you have pets that sleep on your bed or inside your bedroom, you should also consider washing your bed sheets more often along with frequent pet care.
Most of us can tolerate sleeping in our own sweat and dirt. But you should know that there may be a possibility that this practice can lead to serious health problems – bacterial and fungal infections!
