3 Reasons Why You Should Change Your Bed Sheet Once a Week

3 Reasons Why You Should Change Your Bedsheet Once a Week - Marylehome

How often should you change your bed sheet? It’s a question without a straight answer. We’re going to tell you everything you need to know so that you can set up a consistent bed changing schedule.

As you sleep directly on top of your bed sheet, it’s the piece of bedding that you want to change the most frequently.

While we’re used to washing and changing our clothes consistently, bedding is something that can be overlooked. By the time you get to bed, laundry is the last thing on your mind! In reality, you should make a point of doing it once a week.

Here’s why:

  1. Dust Mites

As you sleep, your body’s sweat and dead skin cells are transferred onto your bed sheet, which can result in dust mites. You can't see them, but you can be sure they’re there. Dust mites feed off dead skin cells and can lead to issues like hay fever and eczema (it might be the culprit behind that nasty cough). The solution? Change your sheets more often.

  1. Sweat

This rule also applies if you sweat a lot. Anything that can create sweat, dirt, and dead skin cells is a reason to change your cotton bed sheets more regularly. If you’re feeling ill, you’ll want to change your bed sheet right after getting better.

  1. Pets

If you have a pet who sleeps on your bed or jumps on top of the sheets, you’ll also want to be extra cautious.
