Chantel Mila said our pillowcases can harbour all sorts of dirt and grime that can end up on our faces if we're not careful about washing them (pictured)

'Pillowcases build up sweat and oils, which can lead to breakouts and allergies. 

'Washing them every three to four days and rotating them is extremely important.'

To wash your pillowcase, the mum recommends you pop them in the machine along with a gentle liquid detergent.

Chantel said you shouldn't overpack the washing machine as this will mean the pillowcases won't clean well.

The mum recommends using a gentle liquid detergent as well as a few drops of eucalyptus oil, which helps to get rid of dust mites and allergens in the pillowcases (pictured)

Once you've added the liquid detergent, the mum-of-two said you should add two or three drops of eucalyptus oil to get rid of dust mites and allergens.

'Never use fabric softener as this can leave a residue that can cause breakouts,' Chantel said.

'Use white vinegar instead. It deodorises everything and leaves your clothes smelling amazing.'

Thousands who saw Chantel's video said they absolutely need to start cleaning their pillowcase more often (Chantel Mila pictured)

Thousands who saw Chantel's video said they absolutely need to start cleaning their pillowcase more often.

'I am going to wash my pillowcase right now,' one woman said.

Others disagreed and said once a week for washing is more than enough. 

Previously, consumer advocacy group CHOICE asked its followers to 'be honest' and reveal how often they wash their bed sheets and pillowcases.

The results differed dramatically, with one woman saying she washes her sheets once a week but her mother insists that every second day is more appropriate.

'I do mine fortnightly. With a large family I'd be forever washing sheets otherwise (and there's already enough clothes keeping me busy),' said a mother.

'Twice a week! Anything less to me is gross with the amount of dead skin cells we shed,' said another.

'I have a king size bed and sleep on my own so I sleep on one side of the bed for a week then the other side for the second week before washing,' said one man.

Others were less regimented with their washing schedule and made infrequent trips to the laundry room

'They were clean when I bought them. That's all they need,' said one man.

'Once a year whether they need it or not,' said another.

How often should you wash your sheets and pillowcases? 

According to CHOICE, Australians should be washing their sheets once a week, including the pillowcases.

This prevents a build up of dust mites, which feed off dead skin cells, sweat and seminal fluid.

They should be washing on a 'warm' setting rather than cold to kill any germs that might have built up since your last wash.

If you find your face is breaking out or you're waking up oilier than usual, wash your pillowcase twice a week.

According to CHOICE Australians should be washing their sheets once a week, including the pillowcases.

This prevents a build up of dust mites, which feed off dead skin cells, sweat and seminal fluid.

A person sheds on average 1.5 grams of skin each day - and if that's not 'disgusting' enough, that amount of dead skin can feed one million dust mites, Good Housekeeping reported.

Family’s heartache as girl, 10, unable to walk after motorbike mounted pavement & mowed her down in hit and run

A YOUNG girl has been left unable to walk after a motorbike mowed her down in a hit and run as she strolled along a pavement.

Emily McGregor, 10, was walking along a public path around 7:40pm on Saturday when she was struck by a motorbike.

Her heavily pregnant mum Laura got a distressing call that her daughter had been hit by the bike and rushed to the scene with her third child.

Emily and her friend had met up to go and play together but within five minutes she was knocked down.

Laura said: "There was two boys on motorbikes, one had hit her and she went flying across the fence."

She claims "they just drove off" as Emily's friend frantically phoned her while the young girl's brother called the Scottish ambulance service to the Livingstone address, the Daily Record reported.

Laura says everyone in the community is affected by what has happened.

She said: "The fact it's taken for a child to be hit for something to be done is disgusting, they just get away so quickly and fast.

"I just think its disgraceful, accidents happen but the fact they left her and didn't know if she was okay and they just left that's disgusting.

Emily's since leg had to be manipulated and put in a cast twice as it was put on too tightly the first time.

Her mum said: "She is really struggling with the crutches because she has a really heavy cast on as there were so many breaks in her leg."

Laura says Emily handled it "pretty well" but is worried about the mental impact the incident might have later down the road.

A doctor told the family they won't know the extent of damage for at least six weeks.

The injury has taken a toll already, with Emily worried she won't be able to fulfil her exciting role at school.

Her mum explained: "She's so proud of becoming sports ambassador and got her school hoodies with sports ambassador on the back now she's worried about that and says she doesn't want to walk on a path again."

Cops have launched an investigation to find those responsible.

They are encouraging anyone with information to come forward.

Inspector Kylie Barnard, of Livingston Police Station, said: “The victim and her family have been left shaken by this incident and we are appealing for information to trace those responsible.
