Clean and well-maintained bed sheets are the key to a good night’s sleep and a happy wake-up in the morning.

How Often Should You Wash Them?

Changing your jersey fitted sheet or cotton sheet every once in a while, is a rule of thumb. The same goes for pillow covers, duvets, and other bedding items. Generally, you should wash your bed sheets after every two weeks, however, if you can handle your laundry and it doesn’t seem like hefty work for you, then you can wash more frequently as well.

Pillows don’t make piles of laundry, so you can wash them once every week to keep them fresh and clean. You can devise a washing schedule and wash your pillows, cotton sheet set, and other laundry items separately to avoid stocks of laundry and prevent yourself from getting bogged down with washing it every week. Keeping multiple sets of sheets is another way to prevent yourself from frequent washing days.

Washing Steps

It is always best to follow the guidelines that are mentioned on the label of your jersey fitted sheet. The information provided on the label is very important. The care for your bedsheets starts before you buy them. By carefully choosing the bedsheets and buying from a reliable place, you can make sure that the bedsheets are of good quality.


Before you toss your bedsheets into the washing machine, keep the following things in mind:

       If there are any stains on your sheet, clean them before putting them in the washing machine.

       Don’t overload the washing machine.

       Separate your sheets from other clothing items.

       Check the label of your sheets and use the correct settings.

       Use a gentle detergent

       To maintain hygiene, it’s always best to wash your sheets in hotter water.

Once you have carried the above checks, you’re all set to go!

Below are some extra things to keep in mind for washing certain types of bed sheet materials.

How to Keep Your Bed Sheets Smelling Fresh

Therefore, you should make sure that your bedsheets are smelling fresh after washing. One way to ensure a freshly smelling jersey fitted sheet is by using a scented detergent.
