Bed Sheets Tips & Tricks

A third of our lives are spend on bed and sheets form part of the bed thus our bed sheets require proper care. However, despite the long time spend on bed, no one has the time to wash the top sheets like multiple days in a week. The turning and tossing on our beds all night may make it a fungus and breeding environment. Some of the tips and tricks to bed sheets include:

1.) Purchase bacteria resistant sheets.

Companies have introduced sheets that are bacteria resistant. The linens of the products are not chemicalised but made with silver which is a natural substance that is resistant to bacteria. The silver used contains positively charged whereas the bacteria carries ions negatively charged, to fight the bacteria, whenever bacteria cells contact with the silver linens, the DNA of the bacteria is attacked hence no reproduction.

2.) Use of old water for wrinkled sheets.

After cleaning the bed sheets, the linen becomes wrinkled. For straightening this does not necessarily need a steamer or an iron rather the greatest secret is spraying plain old water tap. First sprinkle the water on the bed almost fully made where the corners should be sticking out. Secondly, shake the top layer of the sheets such that the creases settle. Finally, holder the comforter tight and using corner fold, pull to place everything.

3.) Thread count.

For beddings, the quality of the thread used is of importance. Cotton is of many types but then the fiber length defines the cotton quality. Therefore for best sheets, consider ones with long cotton strand compared to ones with higher thread counts.

4.) Avoid sheets labelled easy care or permanent press or wrinkle free. Such terms mean the sheets’ fabric is treated with a chemical not easy to wash out.

5.) Replace pillow cases as a way of freshening up your bed at least twice a year.

6.) To avoid your bed sheet getting wrinkles, get the sheets off the dryer when they quite warm and get them straight on bed.
