That being said, whether you are allergic to mites or not, you still have to wash your bedding every week. If you donít do this, you risk developing acne or skin breakouts, eczema, bacterial infections, allergies and so on. In addition, you should know that these dust mites feed on your dead skin. In other words, the longer you postpone washing your bedding, the more the number of mites increases.
According to Mary Zeitler of Whirlpool’s Institute of Home Science, if you want to keep mites and other allergens at bay, you should definitely wash and clean your bedding once a week. Experts recommend washing sheets separately, as they need lots of space to get clean, so donít add other items to your washing machine. Try to sanitize them by washing them on a hot/warm cycle.
