How Often You Should Really Be Cleaning Your Duvet Cover
If you have ever wondered how often you should clean your duvet cover, the answer is once a week — if the cover comes in direct contact with your skin.
This is due to the fact that individuals shed skin cells daily, which, coupled with bacteria, bodily fluids, and potential crumbs, can lead to a build-up of dirt over
a week.
However, if you share your bed with others, such as a spouse, pets, or children, this can introduce more bacteria, dust, and fungi, which might necessitate more frequent washing.
On the other hand, if you use a top sheet to protect your duvet cover, you might only need to wash the cover once a month and still enjoy a clean, restful sleep.
