When you add the number of sleeping hours in our beds, we spend more than 100 days in our bed - "just sleeping." That doesn't account for naps, working in bed, or surfing social media. Therefore, our bed and what kinds of bedding we choose all have an impact on how well-rested we are and the quality of that rest.
Let's talk about sheets. There are several things to consider when purchasing sheets for your bed.
First of all, you want to consider a mattress cover to protect the mattress and minimize the allergens and stains. For mattress protection covers, usually, the fabric is so tightly woven that the allergens can't fit through and get into your pillows and bed. Mattress covers also promote the long life of your mattress.
Jerome's offers the Clean Guard mattress protector - a smart choice. You'll want to wash your mattress pad several times a year and also give your mattress a once over with the vacuum at least once a year. Wash bed sheets at least every two weeks, but once a week is best.
The type of sheet you choose, and the cleanliness of those sheets, can significantly raise your chances of getting the best night's sleep. Approximately seven of ten people agree they get a more comfortable night's sleep on sheets that smell clean, according to a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation.
Dust mites, pollen, mold, and pet dander may linger in your bedding and prevent you from sleeping as deeply because of stuffy noses or hard to breathe conditions. When we don't launder our sheets or clean our bedrooms, those common allergens can multiply, and this will impact the quality of your sleep.
Sheets wear differently than our everyday clothing, and since we spend a lot of time in them, germs, sweat, and body oils accumulate quickly. Who wants to sleep in that every night? However, sheets do not need excessive agitation when washing. Select the regular or casual cycle instead of heavy-duty. If they are stained, you can pretreat with a stain remover rather than using the heavy-duty cycle, which can lead to wrinkling, tangling, or even ripping of your sheets. Wash in the hottest water temperature that is safe for the sheets to aid in killing germs and microorganisms. Do not over-dry your sheets; this will minimize shrinking and wrinkling. Sheets made of breathable natural fibers, like cotton and linen, are the best bet for sweaty sleepers, and lighter shades help too.
These are just a few of the things to consider when purchasing cooling mattress protectors, covers, and sheets for your bed. Let our experts at Jerome's Dream Shops take the time to enlighten you further. Visit one of our many locations soon.
