How often do you wash your bedding, bras and pyjamas

It took me a while to find the right balance when it came to how often I should wash my bedding, bras, pyjamas and all. And I know many people struggle with this issue as well. Some people just wash them when they stink (yuck) or when they remember. But it should be quite obvious how often we should wash these things. So here is a quick guide for anyone who may be struggling to decide.

 

Bedding

We use our bedding everyday and clean sheets help us get quality sleep. So keeping them clean is important. Now how often do we wash our bedding? There are different answers to this question depending on the situation. If you tend to sweat a lot and you have a lot of activity on your bed, like little children joining in, and all, then you should be changing your complete bedding set every week. It is a lot easier to follow this washing rule when you have a couple of bedding sets. Groupon has loads of affordable quality bedding sets on their website, so it is worth having a look on there to get a few spares.

If you don’t sweat as much and you sleep alone, you could leave your bedding for longer, say 2 weeks. Your duvet cover can stay longer, say 3 – 4 weeks, as well. It all depends on your sleeping conditions.

We need to wash our bedding regularly to remove a buildup of debris, dust and sweat. It is also important to change our bedding regularly if we suffer from allergies or have breaking difficulties.

 

Bras

Now let’s be honest. How often do you wash your bras? Do you remember the last time you washed the bra you have on now? Bras need to be washed after 3 wears at least. The build up of bacteria, bodily fluids and general dirt means that after 3 bras wears, a wash is needed.

Like with the bedding, it all depends on the lifestyle. Some women who sweat more and have very active lifestyles may need to wash more regularly than others. Hand wash is better for bras. Machine washing tends to be detrimental to the elastic. But if you can’t hand wash for whatever reason, ensure you use gentle setting and hook the clasps to avoid ruining other pieces.

 

Pyjamas

When it comes to Pyjamas, I tend to wash them after 2 wears. Sometimes, I wash them after 1 wear, especially in the summer months when it is dead warm.

Research has also showed that dirty pyjamas can cause all sort of health problems from acne to cystitis. So this is not something we should neglect. Having to deal with acne or cystitis from a dirty set of pyjamas is the laziest thing ever. The skincare hassle is not worth it at all. Get the pyjamas in the washer.

Home Furnishing Ideas for Spring/Summer

The Spring/Summer season makes me feel like spring cleaning my home, and adding some bright home furnishing extras, to brighten my home. As you should all know by now, I enjoy making a house a home, and as a homebody, making sure my house looks pretty is very important to me. This season, I am currently working on sorting the home office, the children’s room and sorting out some window blinds and curtains for the house. We also need a bed set for each room as well, so there is a bit to get done.

I recently came across a Home Space Direct, an online home furnishing store, which stocks stylish and luxury bedding, children’s bedding, duvet covers, curtains, cushions and towels, and it has been keeping me very busy. I am loving the stylish duvet covers with matching curtains, and the cute kid’s bedding sets on the website.

Since I am working with a very small budget, I would need to get the needed home furnishing items as cheap as possible, so I am very pleased with the price range on Home Space Direct.

Here are a few items I am currently checking out –

 

Cupcakes Duvet Cover Set – Single

 

This Cupcakes Duvet Cover Set is really pretty. I love the polka dots themed design, and I know my daughter would love it too. It is also very affordable at £11.95 only. I think this is a fabulous cheap bedding set for girls.

 

Disney Sofia The First Amulet Single Duvet Cover Set

 

For a fancier design, this Disney Sofia The First Amulet Single Duvet Cover Set is a great option. My little diva is a Sofia The First fan, and I know she would love this duvet cover on her bed.

 

Disney Mickey Mouse ‘Play’ Single Duvet Cover Set

 

We are Disney fans in our house, so this Disney Mickey Mouse ‘Play’ Single Duvet Cover Set would be a great choice for my little boy’s bed. At £13.99 only, it is a bargain!

 

Camouflage Single Duvet Quilt Cover & Pillowcase Set – Green

This Camouflage Single Duvet Quilt Cover & Pillowcase Set is another option for my boy’s bed. He has a sleeping bag in a similar camouflage design, and I know he would love this bedding set a lot. And it is just £11!

 

Arlington Natural Curtains

 

A good curtain has the power to change a room for the better, which is great, as I need a few urgently. I am in need of some cheap curtains for the home office, and I like my curtains eyelet, so this Arlington Natural Curtains, naturally caught my eye. I love the chic and simple design. It would suit our existing home decor so well.

 

I could go on and on listing the amazing items I found on Home Space Direct, and we will be here all day. The website is a great place to shop for cheap bedding sets and curtains. They also offer free UK delivery which means you save even more money.

Bedding & Bedroom Comforts

My bedroom is my little sanctuary. I like to retreat to my little sanctuary when I need my sleep, or to relax. So I like my bedroom to look nice and chilled. I pay attention to my bedding and bedroom furniture. I have lost count of the number of bedding sets I own at the moment. I like my bedding smelling fresh and clean, so I change them quite regularly. I even got a bedding spray recently while holidaying in Amsterdam, and I have fallen in love with the fragrance.  There is nothing not to like. Show me someone who doesn’t like the smell of clean sheets?

I am currently lusting after a few pretty things for my bedroom. I have been snooping online like I always do and I am happy to see most stores have the summer sale going on at the moment so this is the perfect time to shop. Here are some of the items I am loving at the moment.

 

Fleurie Platform Valance £59.99 £39.99

This Fleurie Platform Valance bedding set by Yorkshire Linen is a true beauty. It look so posh and out of this world. I love the beautiful shade of gold. It is timeless and very elegant. It would look amazing in my bedroom and as this best part of it, is that it currently on sale, with a lighter price tag of £39.99. I can see myself buying this high quality bedding on Yorkshire Linen‘s website easily.

Faux Mohair Throw £20

This Faux Mohair Throw by Matalan will be a nice bedroom addition. And it would look amazingly beautifully paired with the Fleurie Platform Valance set above. I love the rose gold colour. And it looks like a soft, comfy throw to have around. At just £20, I see myself grabbing this too.

 

Debenhams White Pillow Top Duck Down Mattress Topper £100 – £185 £90 – £166.50

I see mattress toppers as bedroom essentials. They make the bed so comfortable. I recently came across this White Pillow Top Duck Down Mattress Topper by Debenhams, and I think I will be needing it. It is quite pricey but I believe it will be worth the price tag. It looks so good and I bet it will be quality stuff.

 

Sky Tv

Now I have never had a TV in my room but I think I want 1 now, even though our living room is just across the bedroom. Having SKY TV in our room would mean I would be able to watch some TV from the comfort of my bed on a big screen. That would be so cool! Do you agree?
