Snooze with Confidence: Importance of Washing Sheets and Pillows
Picture this: you settle into your bed, ready for a restful night's sleep, and breathe in the crisp, clean scent of freshly washed sheets. But did you know that the benefits of regularly washing your bedding go beyond just that heavenly clean bed sheet smell? In this blog post, we'll explore why it's essential to keep your sheets and pillows clean, backed by insights from the experts at Sleep Foundation. Get ready to learn why your sleep sanctuary deserves a regular washing and cleaning, including sheets, pillow cases, and covers!
1. Hygiene Matters - Even When You’re Sleeping
Your bed should be a sanctuary of cleanliness, a place where you can unwind and rejuvenate where you wake up each morning with a refreshed feeling. However, it might surprise you to learn that your sheets and pillows can harbor a variety of dirt, oils, and bacteria, even if your sheets and pillows may not appear visibly dirty.
Sweat, dead skin cells, and allergens accumulate over time, creating an unhygienic environment. By washing your bedding regularly, you eliminate these unwelcome guests and enjoy a fresh, clean sleep surface for your body every night.
2. Aiding Allergy Relief with New Sheets
If you suffer from allergies, just simply washing your sheets and pillows regularly can be a game-changer. Dust mites, one of the most common allergens, thrive in our beds. These microscopic critters feed on dead skin cells and can cause sneezing, itching, and congestion. Sound familiar?
By laundering your bedding weekly in hot water, you can effectively eliminate dust mites, reducing the risk of allergy symptoms and improving your overall sleep quality. When you sleep better, you live better!
3. Improve Skin Health with Antimicrobial Bed Sheets
Your skin deserves a little extra pampering, even while you sleep. When you don't wash your sheets frequently, oils, sweat, and bacteria accumulate, creating an ideal breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria.
Regularly laundering your bedding helps keep your skin healthy and blemish-free, promoting a clear complexion. Additionally, fresh sheets feel luxurious against your skin, enhancing your comfort and making your sleep experience all the more enjoyable.
Premium sheets from DreamFit® are equipped with antimicrobial properties to further eliminate irritants and allergens that may be hiding in your bed. Our best selling sheets are made from bamboo viscose, which not only keeps you cool at night but also has moisture-managing technology. Combined with the natural feel of bamboo sheets, you'll experience unparalleled softness while improving the health of your sleep.
4. Bed Sheets Care Creates Longevity and Comfort
Investing in high-quality sheets and pillows is essential, but taking care of them is equally important. Regular washing not only keeps your bedding clean but also helps maintain its longevity. Dirt and oils can break down the fibers of your sheets, causing them to become worn and uncomfortable over time due to the natural properties of premium sheets, such as DreamFit.
5. How to Best Wash Bed Sheets and Pillow Cases
By washing and drying your bedding according to the manufacturer's instructions, you can extend its lifespan and ensure that it continues to provide you with the utmost comfort and support.

First, our sleep experts recommend washing your sheets before the first time you use them. This creates a smoother, softer feel for the first time you use your DreamFit sheets and pillow cases due to the natural properties of our fabrics, including:
A tip for washing bed sheets is to always use a mild detergent that does not contain bleach or fabric softener. Keep in mind that some body lotions and other products may cause discoloration to the natural fabrics of our bed sheets. DreamFit’s sheets can be expected to grow softer over time and multiple washes when using a mild detergent with no fabric softeners or harsh chemicals.
Use a cold or cool water temperature when washing sheets as hot water may shrink the natural fibers of our sheets. It is best practice to wash sheets with sheets, and never mix your laundry load of bedding with abrasive materials such as towels or jeans.
In the realm of self-care, washing your sheets and pillows might not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, as we've explored in this article, maintaining a clean sleep environment is crucial for your health, comfort, and overall well-being.
Embrace the routine of regular washing bedsheets and pillow cases, bask in the crispness of freshly cleaned sheets, and let your sleep sanctuary become a haven of tranquility. Your body will thank you, and you'll wake up feeling refreshed.
