How often should you change your bed sheets?

How often should bed sheets be changed?

This is a popular question. Actually, there are numerous factors that go into determining just how often you should change your bed linens. Here are some of the factors that lead to a recommended changing of bed linens every four or five days:

  • People with oily skin
  • Those who let pets in their beds
  • People who eat in bed
  • Individuals who watch TV in bed
  • Those whose bed has become a makeshift office

The best linens in the world are made in Italy  

Another important factor are dust mites, some people are allergic to them. Unfortunately, almost all bedding will get dust mites. It is just very important to change your bedding more frequently if you have allergies.  

It is also important to note that bedding can become very dirty and that is a result of the accumulation of dead skin, bacteria and other stuff. To protect you from all of that unpleasantness, bed sheets should be laundered:  

  • A minimum of once a week during the winter months.
  • Once every four or five days in the summer months because people sweat more and excrete more body oil.
  • If you are not up for washing, then change out the pillowcases every four or five days.
  • Those who are allergic to dust mites should wash their bedding even more frequently.
