Tips for cleaning bedding

Usually, when we have itchy skin, allergies, and acne, we may first think about whether it is caused by food, clothes, toiletries, etc., but ignore bedding.

● The “invisible danger” of bedding
Many people change their clothes every day, but rarely wash their bedding. Sleeping every night, the human body will excrete about 200ml of sweat, especially people who are prone to sweating at night, sweat more. Humid, warm conditions are breeding grounds for bacteria. Human metabolism will automatically shed dandruff. Not only that, but there will be residues of grease, saliva, dust, etc. on the sheets and quilt covers. If the cleaning is not timely, bacteria and dust will accumulate, which will endanger health. Such sheets and quilt covers are undoubtedly skin “killers”, prone to skin diseases such as jock itch and onychomycosis; and with breathing during sleep, microorganisms, bacteria, fungi, etc. on the sheets may also enter the body, which is prone to respiratory tract infections. Not good for human health.

● How often do you wash the bedding?
1. Sheets and quilt covers: wash once a week
2. Pillow towels and pillowcases: wash once a week
Pillow covers are prone to dander, dust mites, fungi, bacteria, as well as oil and dirt from hair and skin. If you clean your face every day without changing your pillow towel, your face may be “washed in vain”.
3. Pillow core: wash once every 3 months
Sweat, as well as dust, dander, and grease on the head, can easily penetrate into the pillow core. The longer the pillow is used, the greater the possibility of streptococcus breeding.
If the pillow core material is not easy to clean, it is best to expose it to the sun once a week; after 1 year of use, it is recommended to replace the pillow core.

● There are coups for cleaning and removing mites
We all know that bed sheets and quilt covers need to be cleaned at high temperature or exposed to the sun. In fact, adding some toilet water during cleaning can also help kill the mites attached to them.
Toilet water contains alcohol, and its main functions are decontamination, sterilization, and antipruritic.

The materials of pillows vary widely, and care should also be taken when washing them.
◎ Fiber pillows and down pillows can be hand-washed or machine-washed with neutral detergent and warm water;
◎ The sericin in the silk pillow can prevent mites and dust, and it needs to be dried in a ventilated place;
◎ The latex pillow covers the pillow with clean water, squeeze and clean it by hand, lay it flat to filter the water, and dry it naturally or dry it with a hair dryer without dripping water. Avoid exposure to the sun to prevent hardening and aging.
