Changing bed linens is a process that differs from family to family. Experts recommend doing it once a week so that dirt, dust mites and bacteria, invisible to the naked eye, do not accumulate on the sheets, pillow and comforter, as they do on our bodies.
Despite these recommendations, some information is surprising. For example, one study found that one in three Britons only wash their sheets once a year, which may give an idea of the color they can turn before going into the washing machine. That's what happened to one housewife.
Her name is Vicki Daniels and she shared on her TikTok account the moment she was about to wash her husband's favorite comforter, after years of not doing so. To do this, the woman decided to use the bathtub in the house, where she poured all the cleaning products she could find at home to let the comforter soak for hours.
As we can see in the two videos that Vicki Daniels uploaded on social networks, the quilt changes color radically. While at first it looked beige or light brown, we finally discover that it was white and that what had made it change color was nothing but accumulated dirt.
As it turned out, this was not enough to remove all the dirt and Vicki decided to put the quilt through the same cleaning ritual again. So for the second time, she put it back in the bathtub, filled it with water and emptied all the cleaning products from the house. She succeeded in doing what only a few hours before seemed impossible.
The comforter came out completely white, as can be seen in the video. It was not revealed how long it had been since her husband washed his favorite comforter, but the number of people who saw this transformation was revealed: more than 2.5 million views on TikTok made it one of the most watched of the year on social networks.
