We all certainly cover our mattresses, cots or other sleeping surfaces with the sheets. Beautiful sheets not only attract the attention of everyone who enters the room, but are also essential for our personal hygiene and cleanliness.
According to a news article published in Healthline, most people change their sheets if they see them dirty or if they want to change the aesthetic. This is completely inappropriate, as sleeping on filthy bedding can be harmful to your health.
Long-term use of the same sheets can lower immunity and increase the risk of seasonal illness or infection. Today we will let you know why you should change the sheets of the beds regularly.
The beautiful sheet often collects all kinds of invisible things. Dust, oil particles, dead cells, germs and bacteria are among them. Research shows that all of these things can make you sick. Bacteria increase the risk of getting diseases, including pneumonia and gonorrhea (sexually transmitted diseases).
We usually wash the sheets in two or three weeks, but experts say that this can cause problems such as colds, flu, acne, allergies, eczema and asthma, as well as sleep-related problems, which can leave you feeling lethargic.
After looking under the microscope, the dirty sheets were found to contain Bacteroides, which can cause diseases such as pneumonia, gonorrhea and appendicitis. They contain both Bacteroides and Fusobacteria, which can result in a variety of serious diseases.
Everyone should wash a sheet every week, no matter how clean it is. The reason for this is that our body releases about 40,000 dead cells every day, which can also contain many bad bacteria. This harms our health and especially sleep.
