How Often You Should Change Your Bedding and Towels

Posted by The Canningvale Team on 13th Feb 2023

These home essentials are everyday staples and sometimes, it can be easy to forget that even staples need a little TLC now and then. When was the last time you changed your pillows, quilts and towels? If you can’t remember, then it might be time to hit refresh!


Looking for a cheat sheet to help you keep your sheets sweet?

When to hit refresh: Wash every 1–2 weeks
Once a week is best, but if you have allergies, get red-hot at night, or sleep with your furry friends in the bed, pop them in the wash every few days.

When to break up:
All our products have a 5-year warranty, but if your sheets run their course after this time frame, you can always think about upcycling!

We recommend:

  • Vintage Softwash: if you like a vintage finish and a soft touch
  • Alessia Bamboo Cotton: if you want a sheet set that’s temperature regulating (perfect for cold and hot sleepers)
  • Lustro: if you like a silky-soft touch that's totally indulgent
  • Antica: if you want to inject a little colour into your life
  • Palazzo: if you love a luxe hotel vibe (without the hefty price tag!)

Money can't buy love, but it can buy 5-star comfort. Our top tip – invest in not one, but two good quality quilts. One for summer and one for winter. Regulating your sleeping temperature is one of the easiest ways to guarantee your beauty sleep.

When to break-up: Every 5 years

The easiest way to maximise the life of your mattress is to invest in a protector. Keeping your biggest bedding investment safe from any night-time nasties is the life’s mission of the mattress protector (plus, they’re much easier and cheaper to wash or replace than a mattress).

When to hit refresh: Wash every 2 months

To keep your skin healthy and clean, you need to dry off with a fresh towel. If you have allergies or skin conditions, you'll want to wash them a little more.

When to break up:
If you invest in your relationship, our Canningvale towels should last five years or more!
