Give some extra thought when buying a new set of sheets. Your sheets will last for some time, and every time you use them could be a pleasant comforting event. Look beyond sheets that are inexpensive and fit the bed. There is much more to buying sheets than most shoppers realize. Additional points to consider are thread count, style, finish, make, and most of all whether they are wrinkle-free or not. Wrinkle free sheets are one of the best buys you will ever make in your bedroom.
You know the joy of sleeping in a hotel bed. The sheets are crisp and clean and usually made of a very high thread count (at least in the better hotels). They feel so good because they have no wrinkles. In the real world, most of us don’t have the time or the ability to stand and press large pieces of material for bedroom comfort. Dragging a small hand iron across an entire king size sheet would take forever. So, if you want the feel of ironed sheets, the closest you can really get is to buy wrinkle free sheets.
You can buy traditional cotton sheets that are treated so that they do not wrinkle, or the wrinkles fall out with even the lowest amount of heat in the dryer. Another option is to buy sheets that are made from flannel or a brushed cotton so that even if there are wrinkles, you don’t really see them. Flannel sheets, and regular sheets have a different feel, wrinkle-free sheets or wrinkle-resistant sheets always feel the most luxurious.
You know the luxurious feeling of slipping onto fresh, cool, flat sheets on your bed. You feel satisfied and happy with your purchase. The difficulty is with keeping your sheets wrinkle-free, the time and effort involved. It is when you iron them that you realize how much real estate there is in one sheet! The size alone makes it difficult to keep them flat and smooth. Wrinkle-free fabrics are the solution for your lifestyle, and at a reasonable cost too.
When you are looking for wrinkle free sheets, check the package to ensure that they are actually wrinkle-free or wrinkle-resistant sheets. You can’t always expect that expensive sheets will remain wrinkle free. In fact, some of the most expensive, higher-priced, and high thread count sheets will absolutely require ironing to get the best feel out of them.
Another thing to look for when buying sheets is to identify the thread count. Although this is by no means the most important factor in buying sheets, it is something that has some value. A sheet that is 1000 thread count will feel significantly different on your skin than one that is 200. The price will also be different, obviously, but you may find that it is worth it. The feeling you get in a nice hotel’s bed is due in part to the fact that they are providing you with sheets of a higher thread count. Once you are accustomed to a higher thread count, you will have a very difficult time ever settling again for a 200 or 300 thread count sheet.
