Cozy, cuddly, and comfy- those describe a perfect bed. But most of you are not well-versed on how to maintain your beddings. If bedding sets are not washed and cleaned regularly, dust and dirt can settle into the crannies, and they might start to smell and become irremediably stained. Some choose to dry-clean but it is not the only option. It’s not hard to wash down duvets on your own, in fact, natural down-filling is an investment that can ensure long lifetime of your beddings.
While it is good to wash your beddings personally, it is also a must for you to check the care tags of your beddings because delicate and embellished fabrics must be left to cleaning professionals for proper care while cotton-made or blended cottons can be washed and dried at home.
How often should you change your sheets?
Your bed sheets contain approximately 12,000,000 dead skin cells, body oils and other bodily fluids, allergy-causing dust mites, bacteria, food, fungal spores, and many others that is why you should change your sheets every week.
Duvet and pillows should be washed at least every six months. Please note that duvets should only be kept for at least six years while pillows must be kept for two to three years only. You should take your duvet out of the duvet cover every morning so the moisture absorbed from the night before will dry out which helps to keep its freshness and longevity.
