Ah! This is how often you have to wash your bed linen and towels

© Maaike Oude Geerdink Aha! This is how often you need to wash your bedding and towels.

It is easy to ignore your washing pile. Especially when you finally have time for yourself, you often do not want to have to do the laundry. Although you probably save different laundry items (white, colored and black), you may also do this with your bedding and towels. But how often do you really have to wash your linen?


Wash your towels every few days. Just like you regularly shower, your towels must be washed regularly. Try to wash your towels every three to four days, but if you want to extend the wash day, you can of course alternate it with several towels. Then wash them, preferably at 60 ° C or higher, at the same time. Tip: always check the washing label before you put them in the washing machine.

< Did you know that you spend about a third of your life in bed? Although you do not wear sheets as clothing, you do have to wash them weekly. Night after night, germs, sweat and skin cells accumulate. Pillowcases should be changed even more often, because of the oils from your face and hair that accumulate daily. So wash your bedding at least every other week, preferably at 60 ° C or higher to kill mites.
