Laundry hacks: Simple way to remove bacteria from bed sheets

The laundry expert claimed this hack is “extra beneficial for white sheets”. Bed sheets can become homes for bacteria if they’re not washed correctly or regularly. Good quality, clean bedding can make a bedroom feel hotel-worthy and luxurious.

Martin Seeley, CEO and sleep expert at MattressNextDay has shared his guide to getting rid of bacteria from bed sheets.

The expert said: “Create a mixture of half and half for each and use it when making your bed in the morning.

“If you see a wrinkle, spray the water, and pull the sheet towards you until the wrinkle disappears.”

This method should not only remove wrinkles but oust any unpleasant smells too.
