How Regular Is Regular?
Washing your beddings every other week is ideal enough. If you’re more of a clean freak like I am, weekly washings is not overdoing it. Pillows should also be washed twice a year, or replaced if you do not wish to be infested by such pests as bacteria, yeasts and molds that can cause all sorts of illnesses like bronchitis, asthma, and diarrhea. Of course, if someone who’s sick is taking almost permanent lodging on the bed, changing the sheets everyday will not only ensure that comfort is maintained, but also that the patient is protected from complications caused by dirty linens. If this is too tedious of a task, then just changing the pillowcases daily would do.
Chaps Bedding And The Horrors In The Sheets
You would not believe how many infestations are currently lurking in your beddings. Most common of which, and probably the most annoying, are dust mites that thrive on dead skin cells. If they are left to their devices for too long, they can cause damages to your immune system that may lead to allergies and other serious disorders. Aside from dust mites other unhealthy things that may be sticking to your linens include: sweat, oils, bodily fluids, and the occasional food crumbs. All of these stuffs can cause problems such as itchiness, unpleasant body odor, and sleep discomforts.
Care should be taken when washing beddings so as not to accidentally damage the delicate fabrics. Follow washing instructions carefully to not only ensure that the beddings come out of the washer as clean as new, but also to preserve the integrity of the fabrics. Different aspects of the bedding set require specific types of washing. Bed sheets should be washed with hot soapy water and dried in the dryer in low to medium setting, while comforters are cleaned using cold water and afterwards dried in low heat. It has done me well to pay attention to the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions, and I have put each bedding set I purchased from chaps in good use for many years.
Clean Chaps Bedding Means A Clean Bill Of Health
Comfort is one thing to consider when it comes to dressing up your bed, and your preserving your own health is quite another. Just because you come home from work with scarcely enough time to take off your shoes doesn’t mean you can shirk on your responsibility to care for your beddings. Making an effort to keep the environment you sleep in clean and free from both seen and unseen health hazards goes a long way to providing you with a good night’s rest. Of course, the physical and aesthetic benefits of Chaps bedding is an indispensible icing on the cake.
