Are you waking up grumpy and groggy in the morning instead of feeling well-rested? You may be surprised that your bed sheets and pillows may be the reason. Of course; several other things contribute to the quality of your sleep either directly or indirectly- outside noise, your health, mattress, daily activities, and diet. But if you always feel that you are waking up not refreshed, then it’s time to look closely at your bedsheets and get the best bedding that guarantees you a sound sleep.

Features in a sheet that determines your quality of sleep
Consider a fabric that offers a good thread count, but remember that the highest count does not always mean that the quality is great. Count here means the number of threads that have been woven both vertically and horizontally per square meter of the fabric. There are instances where the count is manipulated, so what you see may not reflect the real truth. There are instances where the linen quality in some threads that have a higher count is lower when compared to those with a lower count, so take note of this while shopping.
Choice of fabric
Some fabrics are much better for summer, while others are great for winter. Synthetic fabrics are known to trap heat, which may make you get hot while sleeping. This can lead to frequent waking, restlessness, and generally poor quality of sleep. It’s better to choose cotton sheets because they are comfortable and breathable, and make it possible for you to regulate your sleeping environment. High-quality cotton will guarantee you great sleep during warm summers, and there are a few choices that have been specifically finished in a way to offer additional comfort. Also, choose the best colors because gray, white, and blue are the colors that are known to affect your sleeping space.
Launder new beddings at least twice before you start using them to remove dirt, treatment residues, and dust. Laundering also helps you to remove stiffening agents and starch that were used while processing the fabric. Be mindful about which detergent you will use because there are people who are sensitive to perfumes and dyes that are contained in laundry soap. If they come in contact with you, some dyes could cause skin problems, while others may cause respiratory ailments. After use, launder your bed sheets after every 10 days to make them clean and fresh. This way, you will continue enjoying great sleep. Change your sheets after a reasonable time.
However, the frequency of washing your bedsheets could increase if you sweat excessively; you eat while resting on your need, and if you sleep naked. Also, this should be the case if your pet sleeps on the same bed.
Other than making sure that you have great bedsheets, also ensure that your mattress is of good quality. You can have navy rack sheets instead, and you can be sure to enjoy great sleep. It’s comfortable and designed to ensure you have the right posture, while also ensuring that it supports your contour well.
