How To Take Care Of Your Bed Sheets

High-quality bed sheets are expensive; therefore, you should take good care of them. To help you out, here are tips that you should follow to take care of your sheets:

1.Washing
For the sheets to retain their nice look for a long time you should wash them regularly. You should avoid using bleach as it can easily damage the fabric. If you want to brighten the units you should use ΒΌ lemon juice instead of bleach.

You should do the washing with lukewarm water that is less than 104 degrees F. If you are using a washing machine you should set the wash cycle on "gentle" as the sheets are usually not dirty. To reduce wrinkles you should remove the sheets as soon as the cycle is over.

2.Drying
If it's possible you should dry the bed sheets on an outside clothesline that isn't under direct sunlight. If it's impossible to dry the units outside of the home, you should use a clothes dryer. To reduce the damage brought about by high temperatures, you should set the dryer to low heat. You should avoid over drying in order to avoid wrinkles.

Once dry you should remove the sheets and fold them soon. Also, remember to hand press them to remove excess wrinkles.

If you had forgotten the units in the dryer and wrinkles have set, you should toss a damp cloth in the dryer and dry the units for another five or ten minutes.

To have a clean and attractive looking bed, it's recommended that you iron the upper section of the sheets.

3.General Tips
For the sheets to wear out evenly you should rotate them. To always have a clean bed it's wise that you have three sets of sheets per bed: one set should be on the bed, one in storage and the other in the laundry.

To prolong the life of the units you should change them every week. To reduce the number of times that you clean the units it's recommended that you always bathe before you sleep. This way you will keep dirt, oils, and sweat out of the bed.

Conclusion
These are essential tips on how to take care of your bed sheets. For the units to last even longer, you should use a mattress pad between the mattress and bottom sheet. For a clean bed always clean the pad after every few months or as need arises. For example, when the bed gets wet.

anyone got any tips for getting a better nights sleep without having to take medication?


Try some of the following tips. It's what I use to help myself feel relaxed and then I can fall asleep easier.

Try going to bed at the same time every night, even on the weekends. The routine is really helpful for your body clock.

Follow the same kind of routine every night ie shower, teeth, reading in bed as this also sends triggers to your mind.

Sleep in a cool room without any background noise.

Sheets how to wash do not fade?


I believe it's Tide, I could be wrong, but one of the major brands has
a detergent that helps to keep colors from fading. Also, don't wash them in hot water. The new detergents work just as well in cold
water as they do in hot. If you can line dry them, during the day when they can get a breeze, without being in the sun, that might
help keep your colors from bleaching out. If the sheets are from
your sons bed, you might think about getting some of those pads
like the hospital uses. You know the blue ones that they always
put under you on the bed. They make some that are pretty big.
I would check at a Walgreens or CVS. They should carry them.
