Tip #1 – Clean Your Sheets

Plain and simple – wash your bedding regularly. In addition to getting rid of allergens and acne-causing bacteria, a regular laundering routine will help expel sickness-causing germs from your sleeping space. The common consensus suggests cleaning your sheets weekly, but some experts recommend swapping out your pillowcases every two days.

Tip #2 – Protect Your Pillows From Bacteria

You spend 30% of your life in bed, so it makes sense to invest in antimicrobial pillows and pillow protectors to keep bacteria, dust, mildew, and other allergens from infesting your pillow. If you have allergies, this is especially important. The pillow protector will provide an added barrier between your pillow and pillowcase, making it even harder for allergens and bacteria to make their way into your pillow.

Tip #3 – Invest In An Air Purifier 

Most people close their windows and set their heaters up high during the winter, resulting in stagnant, recycled air that can trap allergens and germs. Consider purchasing an air purifier to use in your bedroom. The majority of air purifiers circulate the air numerous times per hour to filter it. Most allergists and doctors recommend using a device with a HEPA filter.
