Fresh Sheets Are The Best Sheets

If you can't remember the last time you washed your sheets, it's probably time to give them a cleaning. Dirty bedding is a hotspot for allergens and can disrupt the sleep your body needs to stay healthy.

Check Your Bedding

You spend more time in your bed more than many other piece of furniture, so you should focus on keeping it in good shape. Bedding can quickly build up allergens like dust mites, which can cause irritation and uncomfortable symptoms.

It’s best to wash and dry your sheets once every two weeks to remove these allergens. Since some detergents can also trigger allergies, choose carefully: if your symptoms worsen, switch to non-allergenic detergent and make sure your bedding is completely dry before placing it back on your mattress.

How to check your bedding

  • Indoor air pollution can cause allergy and asthma problems or worsen the problem you might already have. If you feel lousy at home but better everywhere else, the problem could be in the air.

  • If you notice your symptoms worsening overnight, your sheets may be the problem. The next time you wash your bedding, pay attention to whether or not your symptoms get better, worse, or stay the same. If your symptoms get worse right after cleaning your sheets, consider using non-allergenic laundry detergent or allow them to dry thoroughly in a heated dryer.

If this isn't your issue, consider other reasons why your indoor air quality might be suffering.

What To Do If Your Bedding Is Dirty

A simple wash should do the trick, and a regular cleaning routine is your best way forward if you want to prevent allergies from acting up. Not only are clean sheets better for your health, the fresh scent is a nice touch, too.
