According to the expert, the ideal temperature for washing bedding, which will ensure effective bacterial destruction and reduce the need for washing, is 60°C. Hot washing at this temperature kills bacteria, germs, and fungi that can accumulate on the sheets.

The expert advises choosing a hot wash mode to get rid of bacteria and reduce the frequency of washing. This not only helps to save energy, but also maintains the durability of your bedding.
