Filed under: Healthy HabitsHow often do you wash your bedding material? Things like sheets and pillowcases are generally best kept washed at least once a week, and in the right temperature water as well. Eek - there is a difference in washing machine temperature, you say?
That's right -- lower water temperature when you wash won't kill many of those pesky and allergy-causing dust mites that feed on dead skin and live in everyone's bed. Simply washing sheets in low-temp water won't do the trick, and if you're an allergy sufferer, this can be wishful (but worthless) effort.
Want to really kill all those mites? Wash in at least 60-degree (Celsius) water, which may have to be watched since some materials can be damaged by tat kind of material.
