Cleaner Sheets Can Lead To A Healthier You!

Nobody likes to get the flu, and we all want to take as many precautions as we can, but did you know a simple thing like washing your linens can help you stay healthy? According to and, washing your sheets weekly in hot water (130 or more degrees) can get rid of dead skin cells which are a breeding ground for bacteria. It also rids sheets of allergy inducing dust mites. Pillows also need to be taken care of. The sites recommend washing them every six months to get rid of germs. It's also helpful to wash comforters every month, while duvets should get a weekly cleaning. It's important to make sure they dry properly so as to avoid mold and fungus. And properly washed towels can stop the spread of staph infections and pink eye, especially since bathrooms are humid, which helps bacteria grow.  Once a week is recommended for larger towels, while smaller, more frequently used ones should be washed even more often.
