The truth about your bed sheets

The bed sheets are full of fungi, bacteria, animal dander, pollen, soil, lint etc.: this is the gross truth of Philip Tierno, a microbiologist at the New York University School of Medicine.

Humans naturally produce 26 gallons of sweat in bed every year. This moisture, at high humidity, is an “ideal fungal culture medium“: pillows can contain between 4 and 17 different species of fungus!

To the fungus we must add the bacteria that come from the epidermis, from coughing or from sneezing. Finally, for those who have dogs or cats at home, do not underestimate the hairs of animals, in addition to pollen and dust mites.

bed hygiene is not to be underestimated, considering that a person spends about a third of their life in bed!

So, how often should you wash your bed sheets? Philip Tierno says once a week. This is the only way to avoid brooding germs that can cause inflamed throat, a stuffy nose, exacerbate allergies, or aggravate asthma. In fact, in the bed, the germs are in direct contact with the mouth and, although unconsciously, at night we inhale many of them. Is impossible to avoid it.*
