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? 5 SURE SHOT WAYS TO SLEEP “COOL”!

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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! 

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.  

PowerPoint Presentation:

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!

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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!

PowerPoint Presentation:

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. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

An added bonus of buying light colored sheets is their easy maintenance – they can easily be bleached. Stay cool; sleep well ! For More Updates on Textiles Visit : http://loomhometextiles.com/blog
