We've all been there. You come home after a long day of work, and the last thing you want to do is make your bed. So you pull the covers up to your chin and call it a night. But if you do this too often, your bed sheets will wear out much faster than they should.
Although Sloomy's bed sheets are very durable, they will eventually wear out if you don't take care of them. The good news is that you can do a few things to make them last longer.
Your bedding is considered an investment. If you want to know how to make your bed sheets last longer, read on.
Here are a few tips for making your bed sheets last longer:
Wash them so they last
- Wash your sheets and duvet covers in cool or warm water on the gentle cycle to extend their life.
- Reduce the amount of detergent suggested by half and avoid bleaches, which break down the cloth fibre.
- After your sheets are dry, don't tumble them in the dryer because this wears out the fibres.
Purchase long-lasting sheets
When shopping for sheets, look for a high thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the sheets will be. Sloomy's bed sheets are made of Eucalyptus pulp, making them one of the smoothest and most durable materials on the market.
When shopping for long-lasting linens, seek the following features:
- High thread count.
- Natural fibres over synthetic fabrics.
- Sold by a reputable company.
- A tight weave is also generally better than a looser weave. However, this may not be as comfortable.
It is a good idea to keep a few extra sets of sheets on hand. This way, if one set gets stained or becomes too worn, you can simply switch to another set.
Store them properly
Make sure that your sheets are stored in a dry place where they will not be exposed to sunlight. Sunlight can fade the colours and weaken the fabric's fibres.
Wash with Care
The best way to keep your sheets in good condition is to wash them with care. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for laundering, and avoid overloading the washer or dryer. Use only the recommended amount of detergent, and avoid fabric softeners, which can make the sheets less absorbent.
Since Sloomy's bedsheets are moisture-wicking and hypoallergenic, these sheets are not prone to dirt build-up and therefore do not need to be washed as often as other sheets. It is recommended that you wash them once a week or every other week, using cold or warm water and a gentle cycle.
Buy a Duvet Cover
A duvet cover not only protects your duvet but also protects your sheets. A good-quality duvet cover will last for many years and can be machine-washed and tumble-dried.
Make sure your bed is airtight.
It's critical to air your bedding and sheets frequently to keep them fluffy and smelling fresh in between washing days. This can help keep your bedroom smelling fresh by preventing pockets of foul odours and wetness from accumulating in your bed.
Begin by folding the duvets and blankets and hanging them on a clothes horse or airer to dry. After that, plump and massage the pillows back into form, then separate them so they can air out.
Airing your mattress is also a good suggestion, but it's not practical to do every day. Instead, when changing your bed linens, attempt to give your mattress some breathing room by removing the mattress topper if you have one.
