There’s nothing better than climbing into bed with freshly washed sheets, especially if they’re still warm from the dryer. If you’ve ever felt like you just sleep better after laundry day, it’s not all in your head. Research from the National Sleep Foundation shows you actually sleep better when your bedding is clean.
Experts recommend that you wash your sheets at least every two weeks, but laundering your bedding once per week is optimal, especially if you suffer from allergies, skin irritations, or any upper respiratory symptoms.
You probably already have a laundry routine for your sheets and pillowcases, but when was the last time you washed your pillow? Every night, your pillows are collecting sweat, dirt, environmental pollutants and dead skin cells as you sleep. Plus, all those extra germs, bacteria and even dust mites are bad news for anyone with seasonal allergies, and can aggravate existing upper respiratory symptoms like a cough or seasonal flu.
You might be wondering, “is my pillow washable?” Our UMi pillows are the best memory foam pillows for allergies, designed with high-quality, hypoallergenic memory foam and bamboo pillow cases that are fully machine-washable at home to help remove those allergens and germs—and unlike traditional feather and polyester-fill pillows, they won’t go flat after laundering.
To wash and sanitize your shredded memory foam pillow, simply toss in your washing machine with a mild or natural detergent, then put them in the dryer until they are fully dry and fluffy. Wondering how often should you wash your pillows? Sleep experts recommend washing your memory foam pillows and sanitizing latex pillows a minimum of two or three times a year, and more frequently if you suffer from seasonal allergies, asthma, or chronic respiratory illnesses.
Clean, fresh pillows are a great way to get better sleep, especially if you have trouble falling asleep or wake up with a stiff, sore neck.
