Many people change pajamas only when they put the sheets or blankets on the bed to be washed. While other people don’t even do it because they think their pajamas don’t get dirty too easily. The truth is that pajamas must be changed every day. Otherwise, you may develop several health problems or see those that already have to be greatly aggravated. Why should you change your pajamas every day? That’s what we’re going to show you below by letting you know the seven main reasons for doing so. These are surprising justifications that will completely change the way you look at your pajamas and, of course, your night’s rest. They are:
1. Is the Place Where You Sleep Harmful to Your Health?
Yes, it can be harmful to your health if you use the same night pajama for two days in a row. This is because pajamas are glued to the body’s skin throughout the night, and during that time, it accumulates bacteria, impurities, and dead cells from the skin. This means that you are more likely to get a skin infection or get very sick when you wear the same pajamas on different nights. The fact that you change the sheets and blankets on the bed regularly does not produce great results if you sleep in the same pajamas. In these situations, unwashed sleepwear quickly contaminates washed clothes, and you sleep in a place that is harmful to your health.
2. Bacteria Present in Pajamas Can Be Transferred to Other Clothes
When a person wears the same pajamas for several nights in a row, it is natural to be filled with bacteria, impurities, and dead skin cells. This means that when you put your sleepwear in the washing machine, there is a greater likelihood of bacteria present in pajamas being transferred to other clothes – wash clothes is a science that not everyone knows. How often should you wash your pajamas? This is a controversial topic because people indicate that they do it every day to immediately eliminate all bacteria and impurities. In contrast, others argue that washing pajamas should be done at least once a week so that there is less water or detergent waste for the washing machine. Some distinguish the washing of pajamas by layers; that is, if they are used as a first layer (in direct contact with the skin), they should be washed more frequently; if used as a second coat (over an undershirt, for example), they should be cleaned more widely. The truth is that the longer you wear the same pajamas, the more difficult it is to eliminate bacteria and impurities, even compromising other clothes.
