The moment you lie on a clean bed with washed and ironed sheets is priceless.

However, studies show that people do not wash and change sheets as often as they should.

How often should sheets be changed?

Experts in the field say that there are many people who change their sheets once every two weeks and some every three weeks.

The golden rule is actually that sheets should be changed once every two weeks, however this rule does not apply to everyone.

If you are people who sweat a lot, or live in hot places, sheets should definitely be changed once a week.

As for the best sheet material, experts recommend using cotton, which allows air to circulate.

What about the mattress? 

The mattress is one of the things that unfortunately gets cleaned the least in the house.

We dress it with clean and perfumed sheets, but we forget that the mattress needs to be cleaned at least once a week.

Experts recommend using baking soda to clean your mattress.

The first step is to remove all the sheets.

Then take a clean colander and pour baking soda into it.

Sprinkle the entire mattress with baking soda.

This white powder will eliminate all bad odors by absorbing dirt and moisture.

The baking soda should sit on the mattress for at least an hour and a half.

After this time, lay the clean sheets on the mattress again, without removing the soda.

Don't worry about the baking soda.

At the top of the next week when you wash the sheets again, use a vacuum cleaner to suck up the baking soda from the mattress.

During a week, baking soda has accumulated all the dirt hidden in the mattress.

Another alternative is to vacuum the baking soda after the first hour it has been on the mattress.

However, a deep cleaning is required at least once a week.

If you want your mattress to smell good, then you can spray it with a few drops of essential oil with the scent of your favorite flower./ AgroWeb.org
