When should you change your bed sheets?

When should you change your bed sheets?

A recent You Gov survey has revealed that 36% of British citizens switch their bed sheets every fortnight, 9% wash them after three weeks, and 11% replace theirs once a month. Thus, many aren't changing their bed sheets enough.

To ensure a clean, healthy sleeping environment as well as maintain the longevity of your bedding, it's ideal to change your sheets at least every two weeks. Every night our bodies shed millions of skin cells and sweat - which accumulate dust mites too - so replacing them regularly is beneficial for overall hygiene. You may want to consider changing your bed sheets more frequently if you have allergies, pets, or live in a warm climate. Sweat and pet dander can build up over time on the fabric, so it's important to wash them regularly.

Caring for your bedding properly will help to extend its lifespan and keep it looking its best. Investing in quality bed linen is key here – with the right care, the high-quality fabric is designed to last for years. You should also make sure that you follow washing instructions closely when laundering your sheets.


To make sure your bedding is thoroughly clean, use hot water and an appropriate detergent along with the recommended settings on your washing machine. Regularly changing your sheets will also help them to last longer, since dirt and grime can wear fabrics down over time. So for a comfortable night's sleep and long-lasting bedding, change your sheets every two weeks or whenever necessary!

Additionally, it’s also a good idea to rotate and flip your mattress every three months. This will help the mattress stay in better shape and reduce the amount of body impressions formed. Vacuuming your mattress during regular cleaning sessions is also beneficial, as this helps remove dust mites and other allergens which can affect sleep quality. Keeping these habits in practice will ensure you have a clean, healthy sleeping environment each night!
