3 Main Reasons To Replace Your Sheets
Doctors say we get the deepest, healthiest sleep when our bodies are cool, comfortable, and able to breathe [1, 2]. If you're struggling to fall asleep or stay asleep, it may due to the quality of your sheets.
Let’s go over the 3 key reasons why you need to replace your old sheets.
1. They're Stained, Wrinkled, and Old
As a rule of thumb, sheets need to be replaced after two years of use. This may sound like a waste of money, but think about the shirts you wear. After two years of use, once or twice a week, your shirt looks worn and has visible signs of age. So, why would the sheets you sleep on every day be any different?
The visible signs that your sheets need replacing are the yellowing stains that are impossible to get out, as well as thinning or torn fabric. Not feeling comfortable while sleeping is a key indicator that you need to change your sheets ASAP!
2. They're Not Hypoallergenic
One of the key reasons for poor sleep is sniffling and sneezing due to the common household non-living allergens found on your bed sheets. The first rule of thumb is to wash your bedding every week. Not keen on doing this much washing? Look for bed sheets that have hypoallergenic and moisture-wicking properties.
As a person with expensive taste, but a normal salary, you may find it hard to find a set of sheets that feel perfect at a reasonable price point. Cosy House offers hypoallergenic Luxury Bed Sheets that are designed to wick away moisture while you sleep, keeping you cool and resisting odours and stains. The hypoallergenic properties of our sheets can help keep common household non-living allergens from irritating your skin and sinuses. It’s amazing what changing your sheets can do for your well-being!
3. They're Made From Poor Quality Fabric That Doesn't Last
Have you ever purchased a bargain set of sheets only to immediately realize how poor their quality is? Don’t harm your health or sleep schedule with these cheap sheets. Fabric of poor quality might even give you a skin rash or a headache. It’s simply not worth risking your health over a few bucks.
