Did you know experts suggest changing your pillow case every 2-3 days? Most people change their pillowcases with the sheets about once a week, which seems perfectly logical! But, your pillowcase really should be changed much more often than your sheets. That’s right. According to cleaning expert Shannon Lush in this Better Homes and Gardens article, “pillowcases should be changed every second day without fail.” Pillowcases collect dirt and oil off your skin and hair from the environment, which transfers back to your face causing clogged pores, blemishes, and sometimes allergic reactions.
In a recent Huffington Post article, Dr. David E. Bank, director and founder of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, explains, “No matter what material your pillowcase is, if it is not changed regularly, then it can have more grime, dirt and sweat. If you have any thick products on your hair when you sleep, the oils from your hair sit on the surface of your pillowcase and that can transfer to your face. However, this can happen if your pillowcase is cotton, silk or satin.” The post offers these tips for a “heavenly slumber”:
- Wash your face every night. This helps to prevent dirt, grime or makeup from getting onto your bedding. You know what they say, “cleanliness is next to godliness.”
- Sleep on pillowcases made of natural fabrics. These materials breathe better and transfer less oil. PillowGrace only uses the highest quality natural fabrics, 100% ultra-sateen cotton and 19MM silk.
- Launder your pillowcases every two to three days. This ensures you’re not lying on a pillowcase with several days’ worth of oil soaked into it or pooled on the surface. Also, avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheets. We recommend washing your PillowGrace on the delicate cycle in cold water with a mild detergent to ensure its longevity. Though warm water will not harm your PillowGrace, it may cause the fibers in the fabric to wear down faster than they would with cold water washes.
