How often should you wash your bed sheets?


You may think your bed sheets are clean but here’s the thing, there not!

If you could put your sheets under a microscope, you might be surprised by what you would see. ( And extremely grossed out) 

Almost every bed has dust mites, which are microscopic bugs that feed off of dead skin cells. These little things live, die and reproduce in the same bed sheets that you sleep in. 

Here's what you also may be sleeping in:

  • Dead skin cells 
  • Natural Body Oils
  • Sweat
  • Bodily fluids 
  • Food crumbs 

But don't stress you can keep the microscopic creatures at bay by washing your bed sheets on a regular basis.  

If you're washing your sheets only once a month, that's not going to cut it. Your sheets need to be washed at least every other week, but weekly is ideal.                                                                                                                                                                    

Oh, and if you REALLY want to learn more about those dust mites you’re sharing a bed with, check out the video below. If you dare.
