Most people spend about one-third of their lives in bed sleeping.
This is quite a bit of time, so you want to make sure your sheets are as comfortable as can be. That way, you can wake up refreshed and ready for each day.
Are you now wondering how to wash bed sheets? Then read on, and learn how to get the good night's rest that you're craving.
How Often Should You Wash Your Bedding?
The first thing you should know is how often you should wash your bedding.
In general, you should wash them at least once every other week. Of course, if you like your bedding to be fresher and/or you tend to sweat a lot, you can wash them every week if you'd like.
How to Wash Bed Sheets
To wash your bed sheets, you should separate them by colour, just like you do with your clothing. This ensures that the colours won't bleed, which can ruin the looks of your favourite sheets.
You might be wondering about what temperature to wash bedding at. This will depend on both the colour and materials used in your bedding.
It's best to take a look at the labels, as they'll tell you the hottest temperatures your sheets can withstand. Use those to ensure that you have the highest chance of eliminating bacteria and dust mites.
Make sure you use a plant-based and vegan wash, such as our Sleep Wash product. There are no harsh chemicals or toxins, and it smells great with calming wild lavender, chamomile, and jasmine petals.
Plus, it helps preserve your fabrics. Sleep Wash is even a great alternative to dry cleaning!
Simply use two capfuls for handwashing and soft water and/or light soiling. Increase to four capfuls for hard water and/or heavy soiling.
Once your bedsheets are done drying, you can either hang them up to air dry or tumble dry if the materials allow it.
Use Aromatherapy for Better Sleep
When the fresh bedsheet smell wears off a bit, we highly recommend using some Sleep Mist.
This spray refreshes your sheets and acts as a fragrance booster, replenishing your bed with the comforting smells of wild lavender, chamomile, and jasmine petals.
All three smells work together to calm and relax you, which will help you drift off to bed. If you're ever stressed out about anything, these scents will ease your tension and ensure that you get a good night's rest.
