Changing Your Bed Sheets: How Often Should You Do It?

As we sleep snugly under our bed sheets, many things attach to them and accumulate like dead skin cells, body oils, and dust mites which could be the source of several problems like acne or allergies. So it would be best to regularly change your sheets. But how often should you do it?

Well, according to experts who provided Self with their knowledge, at least once a week is best. But as microbiologist Michael Schmidt, Ph.D., told the wellness site, "[a] myriad of factors determine if you should wash your sheets more often than once a week based on your lifestyle."

Based on several suggestions, there isn't one specific answer that would fit everyone's preferences or lifestyles so it depends on your circumstances. Once a week is a good starting point but if you have special conditions, it would be best to do them more frequently.
