Worth knowing about washing the linens
You know it from yourself. Changing linens can feel awkward, but when you use it afterwards, you know it was worth it. There is now something about the special feeling of sleeping in a completely fresh bed after a long day.
How often to change bedding?
As a rule of thumb, change your bedding as often as you need to wash it. According to Asthma Allergy Denmark, it is a good idea to wash your bedding and linen at least every 14 days. Duvets and pillows must have a trip in the washer and dryer at least four times a year. The same goes for your roll mattress.
How to wash bedding?
Most of us have been trying to stand by the washing machine and pull out clothes that didn't look quite as nice as when we put them in. It is probably the feeling of a slave, as you say in Jutland. Sheets must therefore be washed and dried carefully. As a starting point, you can easily wash most linens at 60 degrees. It can withstand materials such as cotton and cotton satin. However, other materials, such as silk and satin, cannot normally withstand temperatures above 40 degrees. If in doubt, it is always a good idea to check the wash mark. The degree to which bed linen is washed depends on the material. For hygiene reasons, you may need to turn the washer up to 90 degrees if you or others at home have been ill. If the bedding can withstand it. Your light bedding should be washed separately from your bedding in darker colors. So you avoid your dark bedding fading, but you also avoid it staining on your light bedding. Now that you've got your bedding out of the washing machine, consider drying it outdoors if you have the opportunity. Not only is it better for the environment, but it also gives the bedding a feeling of freshness while saving you money by leaving the dryer.
There is a difference in bedding, and the bedding you choose can mean a lot to your night's sleep. Therefore, it is important to choose bedding of a proper quality. A material like cotton satin lets your skin breathe and gives you the best conditions for a good night's sleep.

Worth knowing about house dust mites and lice
For many of us, asthma and allergies are a daily part of life that we have become accustomed to. Especially the summer months can feel long and uncomfortable for us with hay fever, and what should be a nice summer day can feel like a sad affair with red eyes and stuffed noses. This feeling can be very vivid for those with allergies to house dust mites. When the bedroom, which should be a source of good sleep and well-being, turns into a fireplace for home dust mites and other outfits.
What are house dust mites?
House dust mites are small, white, eight-legged animals that are actually related to the spider. They are usually invisible to the naked eye and their size is somewhere between 0.1 and 0.6 mm. They live on skin peel from both humans and animals, and in us and our four-legged friends, the house dust mites have a good, full pantry, as humans lose about a gram of skin peel within a day. However, as such, there is no need to fear house dust mites. They are really harmless unless you have an allergy in the house. Almost after pollen, house dust mites are the most frequent cause of allergy in Denmark.
How to prevent house dust mites?
Despite the name, dust is not as important a factor for house dust mites. They thrive best in humid environments. The most important thing you can do to reduce the number of house dust mites and prevent them from spreading, is to make sure that the air is well ventilated during the winter. It is especially important to vent in your kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. You can also use the hood when cooking, and avoid drying clothes indoors. In the bedroom, you should be on safe ground if you remember to wash and change your bedding regularly. On top of that, you can safely use a roll mattress that needs to be washed about six times a year and vacuum your mattress when changing bedding anyway.
How long do lice live in bedding?
The word lice alone can cause it to itch. The vast majority of us have tried to be involuntary hosts for these uninvited guests. You have probably heard some stories about lice and how they spread, but some of the stories must be taken with a grain of salt. Let me fix one thing right away. There is very little risk that lice can survive in your bedding. Body lice live in clothing, but they are not very widespread in Denmark. On the other hand, as the name suggests, head lice live safely and well on the scalp, providing the best conditions for sucking blood. Lice eggs and loose hair you find on the floor and elsewhere cannot infect you with lice. You need to be quite close to another person with lice to get infected. They prefer to walk from scalp to scalp, and they prefer to stick to one strand of hair before grabbing another. For such a louse should not go long without food before it dries out and becomes weakened. It actually needs to eat four or five times a day. If a lice falls out of the hair, it will not last long. Admittedly, it can survive for up to two days, but typically it dies long before. It is most of all the sick, old and debilitated lice that let go of the hair and fall to the ground. It's reassuring to know that these little bloodsuckers can only survive in hair and that your bedroom is probably not in the danger zone. So there is no need to put duvets, pillows, bedding and other linen in the freezer.
