Every once in a while, we all want to just leave everything behind, head to a new place, and relax in a hotel room, with a bed that shows what sleeping on clouds is like. It’s the kind of bed that makes for a memory that lasts a lifetime. Now, what makes a bed as comfortable as that?
Unlike usual thought, it’s not only the mattress. In fact, it’s also the choice of bed linen. Think about it, it’s linen that comes in direct contact with our skin, and has a much bigger role in a good night’s sleep than we give it credit. Ancient people were aware of this well; Egyptians even viewed them as the symbol of prosperity, light, and purity. Back in the day, cotton was the only material, unlike nowadays with the variety of options we have.
Yet cotton remains one of the most preferred materials for bed linen, considering there are those eco-friendly choices, GOTS certified, high thread count, and without use of toxic dyes. Its much-desired properties also add to the charm, such as softness, comfort, durability, breathability, moisture-wicking, and hypoallergenic, which makes them suitable for any climate. Unlike synthetic options, that make for nights of tossing and turning, organic bed linen is what sweet dreams are made of.
Moreover, when you go for organic cotton, you know it was grown and processed accordingly with the regulations (not treated with chemicals), so you’d rest assured what you buy is of quality, and is good for your well-being. More varieties of organic linen started emerging, so it’s not surprising the blend of cotton with bamboo, or pure bamboo have been quite the trend for some time as well.
The reason is these options are sustainable, antimicrobial (even without the use of toxic pesticides, and fertilisers), and bring about sophistication in the bedroom. Having in mind there are many choices when it comes to patterns and colours too, you wouldn’t have a difficult task in finding the right design that would help turn your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary. It’s important to note you have to pay attention to the sizes, so you get a perfect fit.
You’ve probably heard it’s important to wash bedding every week to keep things fresh in the bedroom. Considering this, it’s necessary to pay attention to how you care for them; if you want to extend the durability, you have to mind how you maintain the linen. You can’t go wrong by washing it in warm water, and mild detergent. Once that is done, dry well, and store cool and dry place.
