Kevin: It's me, your Sleep Paralysis Demon… Kevin. Blocko: A demon? Umm… Animator? Little help here? Kevin: Your Animator has no power here, my little square friend. Kevin: Who dares intrude on my… wait… is that a cat? Get away! I'm allergic… Blocko: Phew! Thanks guys, that was a close one! Well, as I change my bedsheets for no particular reason at all, let's talk about how important it is to regularly wash your sheets.. and what would happen if you never changed them out at all. While studies have shown that many people will wait a month or more to wash their sheets, it's recommended that you do it way more frequently than that. Experts say that you should try and wash your sheets weekly using hot water. That's because a number of not so great things can build up on your sheets if you let them. You know how you love your bed? Well, a lot of other things love it too, including fungi, bacteria, dirt, pollen, harsh chemicals, and even dust mites. Dust mites are the worst because they leave little bits of feces all over your bed. Gross! But hey, you're not a great roommate either. In addition to your own bodily excretions — I don't need to go into those details, do I? — humans shed millions of skin cells every day. That stuff builds up! And according to a 2006 study, adults can produce up to 100 litres of sweat in bed every year — that's like a full glass of sweat every night! And guess what? Your sweaty bed can be a prime spot for fungus to show up. While mild fungal diseases might not be much worse than a rash, less common ones like fungal meningitis and bloodstream infections can quickly turn deadly. If you're never washing your sheets, all of this stuff is just going to keep on building up over time. That could be especially bad if you have asthma or suffer from allergies. Pollen, dust, mold — any of that stuff can aggravate your symptoms. All that grime and dead skin is also terrible for acne, as it can easily clog your pores. Not great for a place where you spend about a third of your life. While never washing your sheets would be bad, according to a recent study, you don't need to wait for years or even months for there to be a problem. Researchers found that bacteria linked to pneumonia and gonorrhea can start growing in your bed in just 7 days. So, if you never washed your sheets, all this bad stuff would happen. Please, do yourself a favor and start washing your bedsheets. I might need to wash mine more frequently if this sleep paralysis demon keeps popping up and scaring me! Kevin: And keep those evil cats out of your room too. Blocko: Hey. Be nice, Kevin. Kevin: Hmph. Fine… nice kitty... So, be honest, in the comments lemme know, how often do you change your bedsheets, or tell us, what should we talk about next? Curious to know what you should be doing if you have to stay at home for weeks, yeah it's pretty relevant, you should check out this video. Sunlight is your primary source of vitamin D. Without direct exposure your levels of vitamin D will drop, which could put you at risk for poor bone health. As always, my name is Blocko, this has been life noggin, don't forget to keep on thinking!
