Why Should You Choose Cotton Bedsheets - A Guide for New Buyers

Once you get back home after a long and tiring day of work, you need adequate rest. You will only feel energized the next morning if you get an uninterrupted night of sleep. One way to guarantee undisturbed sleep is to make your bed as comfortable as possible. This involves having the right mattress, pillow, and bedsheet. Many of us often don’t consider bedsheets to have an impact on how well we sleep. However, bedsheets are absolutely essential, especially the cotton ones as they are soft, durable and ensure good quality sleep. Read on to find out why you must choose cotton bedsheets:

  1. Cotton bed sheets absorb body heat:
    Being a natural material, cotton when spun into a sheet makes the whole fabric breathable. Each night your body temperature fluctuates as you sleep. This may lead to you waking up hot, sweaty, and anxious for some cool air. Cotton sheets will soak up the heat from your body all through the night, letting you stay cool and dry.
    In addition to keeping your body cool, cotton sheets also keep you warm all through the winter season by absorbing body heat. Synthetic materials, such as polyester, absorb body heat, so instead of ventilating naturally, they retain body heat, and you will start sweating.

  2. Cotton sheets lasts longer:
    In addition to enhancing sleep quality, cotton bedsheets last longer than sheets made from other materials. It could be appealing to opt for an inexpensive synthetic alternative, as cotton is marginally costlier, but it is worth a try considering the life expectancy of your sheets. A natural cotton sheet set can last almost two times as long as any synthetic substitute, so you will not have to change it often.
  3. Cotton sheets are soft on your skin:
    Lying down on soft, clean, cotton sheets is one of the best feelings. Cotton sheets are the best alternative for people with sensitive skin as it is a natural hypoallergenic and will not cause any itchiness or irritation, thereby enhancing your sleep quality.

  4. Cotton sheets do not require any maintenance:
    Most cotton bedsheets do not require special care and can be placed straight into the machine and washed just as any other piece of clothing. However, while washing, it is better to avoid combining your cotton with other materials and should ideally be washed alone. Cotton bedsheets can be washed using normal detergents and easily dried using the tumble dryer.

To boost the advantages of cotton bedsheets and pillowcases, go for cotton of the highest quality you can find. Pima cotton and Egyptian cotton offer benefits similar to some of the top synthetic fabrics but in an organic, breathable fibre. While Pima and Egyptian cotton sheets are remarkably soft and opulent, finding genuine high quality cotton fabrics could require some effort. That’s why it is vital to choose a sheet that contains what it says it contains.
