(HealthDay News) -- Making sure that your bedsheets smell nice may help you drift into a sweeter sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Wash sheets and pillow cases at least once weekly, so they always smell fresh.
  • Have a second set of quality sheets to use when one set is in the wash.
  • Use a laundry detergent that smells pleasant.
  • Wash the mattress cover regularly in hot water.
  • Use an upholstery cleaner to freshen the mattress, or sprinkle baking soda on the mattress, then vacuum.
  • Wash your pillows regularly.
