Hence, it's essential to clean & sanitize your washing machine at least once a month.

Let's understand how to sanitize it quickly & effectively.

  • Add Chlorine Bleach
  • Set the Washer Cycle
  • Scrub the Interior Components

  • Clean the Exterior of the Washer

This not only keeps your machine in proper working condition but disinfects it to get clean clothes & bed linens when washed.

Wash sheets at 140° F/60° C FOR OPTIMUM CLEANING

  • Cotton sheets are best washed in warm water
  • Opting for 140°F/60° C for washing bedding is ideal
  • The temperature acts effectually in eliminating bacteria, killing bed bugs and dust mites
  • It also reduces their lifecycle, removing grease and stains and giving fresh and crisp sheets
  • Statistics and research all point in favor of the 60°C/140°F wash as it acts in reducing allergens too
  • Do not wash colored bedding at 60°C/140°F wash
  • The high water temperature might cause the colors to get faded
  • Make sure your sheets can withstand the heat



  • The high-temperature wash along with a good detergent kills the bacteria, viruses, fungi and germs from the bed linen
  • Adding bleach to the wash cycle cleans the sheets effectively
  • Read instructions for the proper bleach quantity to be used before using
  • Use color bleach for colored clothes



A weekly wash is ideal in the following scenarios;

  • You sleep daily on the bed
  • When you and your partner sweat a lot
  • You or your partner suffer from a contagious disease
  • When your pet sleeps with you.



  • You can sanitize your bed linens post-wash by using fabric disinfectants and sprays
  • Please remember to use fabric sprays only as those meant for other surfaces may not be as effective on fabric

Use these steps & keep your bed linens clean not only during COVID-19 but throughout the year.
