Pajamas are clothes that we wear next to our body every day, so hygiene is very important. Many people don’t know how often pajamas should be washed. Generally, they are washed only after wearing them for a period of time. The followings are the hazards of unscheduled cleaning of pajamas and the frequency of pajamas cleaning.

People will pay special attention to clean clothes that are in direct contact with the skin. However, pajamas are easily overlooked by people. Although, in a literal sense, pajamas are clothes worn when sleeping, in fact, people are always accustomed to wearing nightwear as home clothes.

Many women put it on as soon as they go home, wearing it for cooking, mopping the floor, and doing laundry. As everyone knows, this habit will make pajamas stained with bacteria, dust, and oil fume. Pajamas are made for people who need to relax and be comfortable when they sleep. Generally, they are made of cotton that does not irritate the skin. The style is very loose and is easy to drag to the ground to absorb dust.

Generally speaking, home wear and pajamas should be separated. Don't wear pajamas when doing housework, but house clothes. Pajamas are worn close to the body, and they should be dried in the sun after washing to fully sterilize them.

Washing pajamas frequently can also help people avoid the invasion of bacteria, otherwise, the bacteria on the pajamas will easily cause diseases once they are spread. For example, when you change your pajamas and put on another piece of clothing, these bacteria will also follow other clothes; if pajamas are full of bacteria, during the washing process, the bacteria will also get into the clothes that are washed together.

In fact, if pajamas are worn for too long but not cleaned regularly, the risk of skin diseases and cystitis will increase, and they may even be susceptible to Staphylococcus aureus. Human skin will shed a lot of dander every moment, and pajamas directly contact the skin, so naturally, there will be a lot of dander, and this dander often carries many bacteria.

Under normal circumstances, these bacteria are harmless to the human body, but they can enter the skin or wounds, and a little carelessness may cause other infections.

For example, many people carry Staphylococcus aureus, and once they come into contact with a bruised or cut wound, it is easy to cause infection. Human intestines have Escherichia coli, most of which are harmless to the human body, but if they enter the urinary tract, they will induce urinary tract infection and cause cystitis. Some people are more difficult to treat if they carry methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

According to skin experts, in fact, after we take a bath and when we sleep, our body’s metabolism continues, and the skin continues to secrete oil and sweat. These substances will stick to our pajamas. If you don't wash it for several weeks, these oils and sweat will irritate your skin, which may cause folliculitis or sweat spots. Therefore, even for people who take a shower every day, pajamas should be washed frequently, especially for people with oily skin. They should be changed every 1 to 2 days in summer, and every 3 to 5 days in winter.
