It's no secret that one of the best ways to save money and protect your clothing when doing laundry is to wash everything in cold water. Modern detergents are even created to work best in cold water. But when it comes to bedding and towels, it's important to regularly remove germs, bacteria, body oil and grime and properly sanitize them for continued use. So, meet in the middle: With every other laundering of bedding and towels, choose the hottest setting and wash them separately; then use cold water on alternate washings to keep them clean.
