How often do you need to change bedding?

To keep your sleep hygiene in good shape, you should change your sheets at least every two weeks. Most people, though, only do it once every few months or even less often. In the winter, it is harder to dry bedding after washing it, so many people stop changing it. Let’s keep in mind that we should always sleep on fresh bedding because mites are always growing there. We can also get sick while we’re sleeping. Changing the bedding often gets rid of many risks.

The same problems happen when we sleep in our pyjamas. It turns out that changing clothes for bed once a week is not enough. On average, you should change your nightwear every three days. Even though we’re clean and just took a bath, that doesn’t mean we don’t have dead skin or mites on our pyjamas. These things tend to settle on our bedding, pyjamas, and the bed itself. A lot depends on what the pyjamas are made of. The fabric has a big effect on our health, and since we sweat while we sleep, it’s important to change our pyjamas every few days. If we feel like our pyjamas are old when we wake up, this is another reason to get a new set of clothes. Even small children’s pyjamas should be changed every day, it turns out.
