How Often Should You Wash Your Silk Pajamas
For daytime clothes, you've probably got a good laundry routine. But how to deal with your silk pajamas? Silk pajamas are used daily at home and don't show a lot of wear and tear. Also, they are usually worn when you're clean(after a shower). If your pajamas are used not often, it seems wasteful to wash them after every wear; it is also plain impractical. How often should you wash them? Before you go off spouting different numbers, here are a few things to think about.
Personal Sleep Habits
On the one hand, the frequency of cleaning silk pajamas depends largely on whether you wear underwear or not. If you like wearing your silk pajamas as a first layer without underwear, you may need to wash them after every use. If your pajamas are a second layer, it is probably suitable to wash them every two or three days.
On the other hand, even if you do not go out wearing silk pajamas, natural body oils(even after a shower), dead skin cells, and bacteria can still build up in the fabric, leading to odor and causing skin irritation. It's another thing to notice that if you're wearing pajamas all day, you may need to wash them every day.
In addition to sleep habits, you will need to check your sleep environment to determine how often to wash your pajamas. If you do not weat a lot when sleeping or you take a shower before tucking in silk pajamas, you can probably reduce washes.
People are recommended sleep in a cool place for quality sleep, which might also reduce the amount of sweat your pj's are absorbing every night. If you are experiencing hot and humid nights, or you like to use many skin care products before tucking in for the night, you will need to clean your silk pajamas more often.
