5 SURE SHOT WAYS TO SLEEP “COOL”! 5 SURE SHOT WAYS TO SLEEP “COOL”! Presentation Transcript

  • How many of you have a different set of bed sheets for the summer and a different one for the winter? 5 SURE SHOT WAYS TO SLEEP “COOL”!
  • How many of you have a different set of bed sheets for the summer and a different one for the winter? Not too many, I am guessing. Here is a look at why it is a good practice to have a different set to suit sultry summer conditions.
  • When selecting sheets to drape on the bed this summer keep the following things in mind: Fabric Pick natural fibers.Avoid the satins, silks and synthetic blends for sure!
  • Cottons, bamboo, linens and some cotton blends work best because of their absorbent property (and yes, we do sweat even when asleep!). Natural fibers also have a cooling property. While some may argue that silk is also a natural fiber and has better regulating properties, the downside of buying silk is its high price and maintenance.
  • Also, silk wraps close to your body and thus traps heat. Nothing feels as good as a crisp cotton sheet on a hot and humid day. Oh, and try to buy cotton that has not been prewashed with resin, since that would decrease absorbency!
  • Color It is a scientific fact that dark colors absorb and light colors reflect. The obvious choice then is to go for all shades light and pastel. Not only do they look good and make you feel less hot.
  • Bothered, they also absorb less of the bright warm light in the room the whole day. I personally love hanging my sheets out to dry on a line in the bright sunshine. The sheet absorbs that outdoorsy, summery smell and retains it for a while.
  • Thread Count Yes, Egyptian Cotton sheets feel like bliss. But don’t you get caught up in the thread count of a sheet! In fact, the higher the thread counts the tighter the weave and thus lesser the air that can flow between fibers. If a sheet passes the feels-so-good test, pick it up.
  • Recommended counts are anywhere between 250 and 450 counts. Prints Small prints, pleasant patterns and pretty colors look tempting on a hot day. Loud prints equal noise and thus cause an uneasy feeling.
  • Stick to prints that calm you, that don’t have too much happening! Imagine a white sheet with pretty pink rosettes scattered delicately around versus a white sheet with a lot of abstract swirls in a multitude of colors. Remember, a cool mind is also important, so don’t introduce any elements that mess with the equilibrium of your mind and emotions!
  • Wash Care We need to change and wash our sheets more regularly during summer, even if we are in an air- conditioned room (we sweat in our sleep remember?). Buy sheets that are easy to wash, iron and use.
  • An added bonus of buying light colored sheets is their easy maintenance – they can easily be bleached. Stay cool; sleep well! For More Updates onTextilesVisit : http://loomhometextiles.com/blog
