A nice, clean bed is the best thing to come home to at the end of the day. But is your bed really as clean and hygienic as it looks to the naked eye? Read on to find out some disturbing information about what may be lurking underneath those lovely sheets that may make you rethink just how clean your bed really is:
Despite society’s reluctance to do so, scientists insist that weekly washing is the bare minimum requirement to keep your bed linens clean and bacteria free. Once a week? Too frequent, you might be thinking. Well, after you are done reading this, you might be thinking otherwise. Because scientists maintain that after just one night of use, your sheets can accumulate a staggering variety of bacteria, dead skin cells, dirt and even excrement! And research suggests that every time you use your sheets you deposit even more dead skin cells, as well as dust, grime and grease that you might have accumulated during the day. To make matters worse, if you use cosmetic products, they leave trace elements in your sheets which also increase bacteria and dirt buildup, while sweatleaves trace amounts of excrement.
All in all, it’s a pretty grim picture on a microscopic level. This is news to most of us. Luckily, this horrifying array of unwanted bacteria and filth in our bed sheets can be easily avoided, by simply doing what the experts tell us: wash the sheets at least once a week. Using mild detergents and warm water to preserve the longevity and texture of the fabric, you can maintain a clean, bacteria free environment for years. What a relief!
