Reasons to Change Your Pillowcases More Often

Reasons to Change Your Pillowcases More Often

Your pillowcase is more important, and dirty, than you ever thought.

Your pillowcase has a really close relationship with you. That means there are plenty of opportunities for dust mites and bacteria to make themselves at home and do damage to your skin and hair.


 Most people don't even realize that our hair holds dirt, oils, sweat and bacteria from everyday life.  At night when you lay down on your pillowcase and your hair is rubbing against your pillowcase, it is absorbing that dirt, oils, sweat and bacteria and now you are rubbing your face on your pillowcase.  This can cause acne and blackheads on your skin.

To avoid this kind of buildup, you should wash your pillowcase every 2-3 days.

Who has time to do that?  Extra pillowcases are needed to easily change out your pillowcases before you sleep or after you wake.

Even when your pillowcase is clean, you should be careful with fabric softeners or dryer sheets that are known to leave waxy residue on your pillowcases.  The 1800 Collection Sheet Sets has a clear care instructions, which do not include using fabric softener or dryer sheets.

The fabric of your pillowcase is also important when it comes to maintenance and care for your hair.  Cotton fabrics for instance can cause split ends, frizz, and hair damage.  Consider even using a lighter fabric like Bamboo, which is super soft on your skin.

Without washing or changing your pillowcase more frequently, dust mites and bed bugs can make a home and even worse, get into your pillow.   Bed bugs are more likely to cling to dirty laundry and are near impossible to get rid of.  Most people say to use a pillow protector, with Sleep Oasis, Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, it already comes with a protective case.  Bamboo is hypoallergenic, moisture wicking, cooler and helps to prevent mold, bacteria and dust mites.  Allergy sufferers no longer need to compromise comfort.
