How to take care of Bedding

When the day ends and it is time to sleep, after a long day's work, it is a pleasure to find our bed perfectly made with clean and well-maintained clothes. Wrapping ourselves between clean, soft and comfortable sheets favors our rest and will help us increase the feeling of well-being.

On the other hand, keeping the bedding in proper conditions will help us avoid allergies and other health problems. In bed it is inevitable that dust mites and moisture are deposited, so it is important to take into account some basic tips .

It is necessary to wash the sheets before using them for the first time, in this way we remove the remains of chemical substances derived from the manufacturing process.

To prevent the growth of mites it is also advisable to aerate the bed every day before making it and if it is possible to receive direct sunlight. Ventilation and sun rays on the sheets help keep them healthy.

It is recommended to change the sheets at least once a week. It is recommended to wash them at 30 degrees with a mild detergent. It is preferable to replace the fabric softener with a stream of apple cider vinegar or white vinegar. It is more ecological and clothes are soft; if you don't like that smell you can add a few drops of essential oil of your favorite smell. It is also good to dry these clothes in the sun as this acts as the best disinfectant and bleach. It is a good idea to introduce scented sachets in the closet in which you store your sheets, so they will always be fresh and with your favorite smell.

Do not forget to vacuum the mattress frequently to eliminate the mites and the remains of our skin that accumulate. The mattresses should be covered with a closed cover  and put on the protector to prevent dust and dust mites from passing directly. It is also advisable to wash the cover and the protector at least once a month.

If you use duvet cover follow these same tips and also ventilate and air frequently the filling to keep it free of mites and moisture.

And renew your sheets from time to time , it is a very simple way to change the decoration of your bed and adapt it to new trends.

Bedspread care instructions - How to hygienically clean blankets?

To keep the bedspread clean, you have to wash the bedspread. Because cleaning the bedspread minimizes dust mites and other allergy agents.

The optimal form of cleaning depends on the material of the bedspread. Thin blankets are more likely to be machine washed. Because thin fabrics cannot absorb so much water, the washing machine can easily clean the sheet. 

After washing, the best thing to do is hang the bedspread over a drying rack and renew the fold and position several times so that the blanket does not get out of shape. If the bedspread is thicker and made of wool or natural fabric, you can clean it in the bathtub. For this you need a mild detergent or a special cleaner. It is important that you let the blanket soak well. When washing by hand, you should also be careful not to pull the blanket out of the mold. With synthetic fiber blankets, it is sufficient to give the ceiling new freshness through regular ventilation. Because with synthetic fiber blankets, dust mites cannot penetrate well.

Ventilation is just as important as washing the bedspread. The ceiling should be ventilated on dry, sunny days outdoors. The UV light has a disinfecting effect on the bedspread. However, you should not put the blanket in the blazing sun, because then the color of the blanket will fade after a while.

Is the bedspread suitable for tumble drying?

Here again it depends on the material of the bedspread . If it is a bedspread made of cotton, you can also put it in the dryer. However, it is recommended to use gentle drying here. If the blanket is made of natural fabric, the bedspread is not suitable for the dryer. The natural fabric is matted in the dryer by the constant movements at elevated temperature. Therefore, you should only let natural fabrics dry in the air. In contrast to natural fabrics, a synthetic fiber bedspread is suitable for tumble drying. But even here you should only let the bedspread dry at a low temperature. The low temperature protects the blanket from knots.
