Sometimes there is nothing better than snuggling under a just clean duvet, but keeping it as fresh as the day you put it on, can be a bit tricky. These little tips will help keep your bedding and bed as fresh as a daisy.
Forget about making your bed as soon as you get up, you will trap moisture, the best thing you can do is fold the covers or duvet back and let it air, so that the moisture evaporates.
Bedlinen needs to be washed once a week or fortnightly at 60°, higher if your fabric can take it. If you use pillow or mattress protectors, wash those at least once a month to keep them fresh, try and wash them at a similar temperature or to the temperature the manufacturer states.
If your mattress smells a bit tainted, try a sprinkle of bicarbonate of soda on it, leave it for between 3 to 4 hours and then vacuum off. The soda will trap unpleasant odours that build up on the mattress. Don’t forget to vacuum pillows and blankets.
It may be a little chilly outside but it is the perfect time to air bedding, it helps get rid of bugs, plus there is nothing like that clean, vibrant outdoors smell.
