How Often Should You Change Your Sheets?
If you have been wondering, we have the answer to this burning question. Every week, most of us spend an average of 50-60+ hours sleeping in our beds to get adequate rest. But, the more time we spend in bed, the more dirt, sweat, oil and bacteria tends to build up on our bedding.
According to a recent study by Mattress Advisor, the average person changes their sheets every 24 days, but if you ask us, that is too long. In order to keep your bed fresh and hygienic, we recommend washing or switching out your sheets once a week. However, this also depends on how often you sleep in your bed and how quickly it gets dirty. If you are going on vacation for a week, you won’t need to change your sheets. If you let your furry friends sleep in bed with you every night, you’ll most likely want change or wash your sheets every couple of days.
If washing your sheets every week is not feasible due to your hectic schedule, it is always a good idea to have multiple spare sheet sets on hand so you can switch them out whenever you need to.
During the summer months, you may want to switch your sheets more often as you will most likely get more sweat on your bedding. For hot sleepers, our Loki Print Cooling Sheet Set will help prevent those dreadful night sweats. The advanced moisture-wicking fabric and cooling technology will keep you dry, cool and cozy so you will wake up feeling refreshed. Not to mention, the unique diamond print dresses up your bed.
Another great option to keep your bed fresh is our Claire Floral Print Sheet Set, which is fashionable and functional. When we sweat a lot, bacteria build up and this can lead to odors or even discoloration of fabrics. This sheet set is made from an absorbent microfiber that draws moisture away from the body, while antimicrobial fibers help filter and reduce odors
If you’re looking for the perfect everyday sheet set, our Knox Solid Microfiber Sheet Set only gets better with time. These sheets are lightweight, durable and treated to prevent moisture build-up and odors so you can sleep in ultimate comfort.
In terms of the rest of your bedding, you should also wash or change your pillowcases about once per week, more often if you are prone to allergies, acne or other skin conditions. Comforters and throw pillows can be washed less often because they tend to have less direct contact with your skin. Once per month should be enough. Before washing any items, be sure to check the care instructions to preserve the fabrics.
