You may have just spent hours laying on a variety of mattresses and think you just spent a lot of many to buy a good nights’ sleep. Unfortunately, this may not be the only thing keeping you from a peaceful nights’ sleep. Buying the right set of bed sheet is and should be a priority if you want the best quality sleep every night. Even the best mattress won’t make those scratchy itchy sheets feel great. If you are typically buying cotton bedding, you might be hesitant when thinking about buying bamboo bedding and wonder if they are actually a better product than the traditional cotton sheets or are they just a new trend of the century. Let’s take this opportunity to look at the benefits of bamboo sheets and how they may compare to the cotton products that we have been using for years. Knowing the real facts about bamboo products will help you make informed choices about the bedding that will be right for you.
Bamboo Bedding Facts!
Here are the key reasons you may want to choose bamboo sheets when making your next purchase.
Durability – Many of the traditional cotton fabrics will have a short life span and will lose their integrity after a few washes. Bamboo sheets are a good choice because of their durability and can last upwards of 800 to 1000 washes. Since the fibers aren’t just on the fabric surface, the fabric can be washed numerous times without compromising the durability. Many buyers of bamboo products compare the strength of bamboo sheets to the durability of a pair of denim jeans.
Softness – Bamboo sheets are not only strong and durable, they’re soft. And even better than soft, they can get softer after each wash. Unlike traditional cotton sheets that lose their integrity and softness after they have been used and washed, bamboo sheets become softer – they’ll just become more welcoming and comfortable.
Cooling – Bamboo is a very breathable fabric and much cooler than cotton products. In most cases, you’ll find that bamboo sheets keep you cooler throughout the night. Bamboo stays about 3 degrees cooler than traditional cotton products on average because of the bamboo’s lightweight properties and inherent ability to repel moisture. The breathability of bamboo sheets will allow your body heat to easily escape.
Hypoallergenic. Some organic cotton sheets are hypoallergenic, but all bamboo sheets contain hypoallergenic properties. If you typically struggling with sneezing, wheezing, or coughing at night due to the fabrics used in your bedding, bamboo sheets might be the solution. Bamboo sheets naturally repel dust mites and other problem allergens.
