How dirty are the sheets? Five major germs are harmful to health

1. The skin cells shed by the human body will become the food of mites, and mites and their feces will gradually accumulate on the bed sheets;

2. Dust, lint, fabric fibers, particles, small insects, pollen, soil, sand and cosmetic debris will also “patronize” the bedspread;

3. Some people have the habit of eating in bed, which will pose a great threat to their health, cause respiratory diseases and infectious diseases, and worsen the condition of people with allergies and asthma.

4. If the quilt is too thick when sleeping at night, people will also sweat about 1 liter, which will make the bedding damp and more likely to breed bacteria;

5. Animal hair, dandruff, fungi, molds, spores, secreted body fluids and other bacteria will also accumulate;

In addition, some new bedsheets have peculiar smell, which is due to the addition of formaldehyde in the production process. Formaldehyde can cause cough, allergic rhinitis and other diseases, and may even cause cancer. In addition, dust and bacteria will be contaminated in the production workshop and during packaging and transportation, so it is best to wash and reuse the newly bought sheets after soaking them in salt water.

Experts suggest that in order to reduce germs, it is best to change the sheets once a week. During the day, it’s best to cover the bed sheets and pillows with a dense bedspread, which can prevent bacteria and dust. When changing the bedspread and bedspread, you may as well use a vacuum cleaner or a slightly wet rag to clean up the residual scurf and hair on the mattress. If there is a stain, you can smear the dirty part with soap, and then absorb it with a dry cloth, so as to avoid mildew and odor.

From this, do you know now that there are so many hazards on the bedsheets, and frequent washing can promote health.
