At what temperature should bedding be washed: the ideal option is named

The right temperature and regimen will rid the bed of dust mites

Bed linen, in which we spend a third of our lives, must be hygienically clean and properly washed. This will not only ensure comfort during sleep, but also help maintain health. After all, dust mites are prone to settle in the fabric, which accumulates microscopic skin particles.

Therefore, OBOZREVATEL asked professional advice on the temperature of washing bedding that will ensure maximum cleaning. Experts advise to take into account several factors at once.

First of all, you need to take care of getting rid of dust mites. Fortunately, these microscopic organisms die at a temperature of 50 degrees, and it is suitable for washing sheets and pillowcases made of any natural fabric. However, you should set the wash cycle to be as long as possible - at least two to three hours.

If you have cotton bedding, you should also pay attention to its color. Colored items will fade very quickly if washed at temperatures above 50 degrees. On the other hand, white linen will look even better if you wash it at 90 degrees.

Flax is also very unpretentious to the temperature regime. It can be cleaned qualitatively in the range from 60 to 100 degrees. Therefore, here you should also focus on the color of the fabric and the dye resistance.

Experts also advise against filling the drum of the washing machine to the top when you wash the bed. There should be a little space between things so that water, with or without detergent, can pass through the fibers well. At the same time, you can add even a little less powder or gel than the instructions suggest - an excess of the product can make the fabric of the bed stiff and cover it with an ugly gray coating.
