WHY YOU NEED A MEMORY PILLOW

why you need a memory pillow - bedsheetsexpress

Getting tired of that lumpy old pillow that never seems to give your neck the cushion and support it craves? Well, you’re probably in need of a memory pillow. There are so many reasons why memory pillows are superior to regular pillows, read on to find out!

One of the best reasons to get a memory pillow is that it prevents your neck from bending while you sleep; making sure that your spine is aligned.

A memory pillow is made from a dense material which prevents your neck from bending in awkward positions. Those annoying neck pains would be a thing of the past when you use a memory pillow.

Another awesome reason to get a memory pillow is there is absolutely no adjusting required. Memory pillow does not require flipping, fluffing, or any of the adjustments of a regular pillow, as it will retain its shape and size.

If you’ve been looking for a way to reduce your snoring, then the memory pillow is for you! While regular pillows tilt your head upwards, causing air passages to close, a memory pillow contours your neck, allowing your air passages to remain open, thereby reducing snoring!

Memory pillows provide so many health benefits that a traditional pillow doesn’t, and has and have a much longer lifespan. When it comes to comfort and quality sleep, BEDSHEETSEPRESS memory pillow is definitely the way to go!

Are Your Bath Towels Clean and Dry?

are your bath towels clean and dry

Do you know that damp towels are susceptible to bacteria growth, which results in that unbearable musty smell? Hence, they are the most important laundry items to keep dry and clean. Now, a few tips on how to care for your towels and ensure they are always clean, damp, and fresh-scented.

–    A proper scrub during a bath/shower is necessary if your towel must be kept clean because dirt and body oils not washed off gets transferred to your towel.

–    Hang up your towel after using it, preferably in a well-ventilated moisture free space. The residual buildup of bacteria worsens when a damp towel is folded and kept in an enclosed place.

–    Of course, wash your towels regularly with heavy-duty detergent that clean well. Because towels are usually thicker than most laundry items, it is important to use enough water to rinse.

–    If your towel is in really bad shape, begin by washing the towel in hot water but do not add any detergent. Instead, add one cup of white distilled vinegar to the water. The vinegar will help strip away the build-up of detergent, body soil and fabric softener. Then, wash again in hot water with your regular detergent. Your towel will smell so fresh you might want to eat it!

When buying towels, look for 100 percent combed or ring-spun cotton like the ones we sell at Bedsheets Express. These towels will be more absorbent and durable than other towels in the long run.

What Are You Doing to Ease Stress?

what-are-you-doing-to-ease-stressWe often underestimate the power of stress. According to medical experts, 75 to 90 percent of hospital visits are directly or indirectly stress related. Stress can stoke symptoms such as headache, achy neck, ulcer, and allergies.

Aside medical reasons, the impact of stress on your personal life can be damaging. A person who is continuously stressed is definitely an unpleasant person to be around. It is easier to be cranky and upset when stressed. And of course, stress diminishes sexual desires.

The first step to reducing stress is accepting that you are stressed. Acknowledging that you are always fidgety, anxious, and easily tired is necessary if you must fight off stress.

The second step is identifying the things that cause you stress: a troublesome spouse, a nagging boss, a failed project, terminal illness? Then ask yourself what you can honestly do to change your current situation. If you have a solution, by all means go ahead and apply it. If you don’t have any solution and you can’t ask for help, then why cry over spilled milk? I know it’s easier said than done, but as the popular saying goes: ‘life is for the living’.

One way I like to ease stress is by Aromatherapy which is a complementary and alternative medicine practice that taps into the healing power of scents from essential oils extracted from plants in order to balance the mind, body, and spirit. Studies have shown that essential oils used in natural product diffusers are calming and can relieve stress. Essential oils like lavender have even been shown to react the same way biochemically that anti-anxiety medications do with certain neuroreceptors.

It is about time you take a deep breath and enjoy the little things in this fast-paced world. Relax. Breathe. Relax. You are here, now, and that’s what is important.

Let’s begin this journey on making life a little more pleasant for you.

What Are The Signs You Are Using The Wrong Pillow?

what-are-the-signs-you-are-using-the-wrong-pillowThere is a good chance you are using the wrong pillow if you wake up daily with neck pain, stiffness or headaches.

A good night’s sleep is heavily dependent on a good pillow which will support your head in natural alignment with your spine while providing a soft feel.

bad-day-because-of-lack-of-sleepIf you are consistently having a bad day because of lack of sleep it might be time to change your pillow.

Another sure sign that you need to change your pillow is an improved sleep when you visit a friend, borrow your partner’s pillow or stay in a hotel.

Why Bedsheets Express Pillows – The World’s Softest Pillows – Are The Best For You

memory-pillow-neck-relieveOur bestselling Bounce Back Pillow is ideal for a good night rest. It offers good support for the head and neck while retaining a soft feel, and improving muscle activity.

If you think our Bounce Back Pillow is everything, then you should try our Memory Pillow. Like the Bounce Back Pillow, the Memory Pillow relaxes the muscles and decreases the amount of pressure on your neck and head. The biggest advantage of the Memory Pillow is that it improves blood circulation and soothes sensitive pressure points. The Memory Pillow is also suitable for those with allergies as it is made from natural and organic materials.

Most quality pillows will only last you three to four years before you need to change; while lesser quality pillows will only remain supportive for a few months. The good news is our Bounce Back and Memory Pillows last eight to ten years!

Sometimes our days can be stressful with work, meetings, engagements and kids stretching us to the limit. A simple thank you to your body by changing your pillows can go a long way in making you healthy and more energetic.

Different Ways To Say ‘I LOVE YOU’

different-ways-to-say-i-love-you‘I love you’ is probably the strongest sentence you can say to a person. It is telling a person I see all of your imperfections and they don’t matter. It is saying when I am with you the world stops. And because love is the essence of life, almost everyone can close their eyes and think of a person they are in love with. What many fail to realize is that love is an action word. It is doing and showing. It is not enough to just love a person, or say you love a person. What are the things you do to show your loved one that you see them? What are the ways you show love?

While I don’t claim to be a love expert, I can tell you that everyone loves a well thought of gift on a day they least expect to get one. You do not need to wait for Birthdays, Anniversaries, or Valentine’s Day to give your loved one a gift that could brighten their entire week. Most importantly, you do not need to spend a fortune.

Top 5 Reasons to Use a Duvet Cover

top-5-reasons-to-you-a-duvet-coverA lot of people always ask what a Duvet Cover is and seem reluctant to make the move from buying fixed Duvets to Duvet that comes with a Duvet Cover. We understand that they may not have any idea on what it is and why they should use it, so here are Top five reasons to use a Duvet Cover.

1. You can change the look of your bedroom anytime for less

Duvet covers come at modest prices and you can get a lot to go with just one duvet. If you properly select the colours and designs when buying; you would find that you can easily switch up the look of your bedroom simply by changing the Duvet Covers.

easy-to-clean-duvet2. They are easy to clean

Duvet covers are generally easy to clean; by hand or with a machine. As they weigh less than Duvets, they can be pulled off from time to time and cleaned without much hassle. This is about the most popular reason people opt for Duvet Covers for a Duvet and not just a fixed Duvet. It can be thrown in with regular laundry and requires just the same laundry care and drying time that bedsheets need.

3. They protect your Duvet

A duvet cover under normal use circumstances will keep your duvets relatively new. By protecting your duvet from stains and tears, it will also reduce the high maintenance cost you will have spent on cleaning the duvet frequently as you will only need to slip off and clean the cover.

4. They are easy to switch and store

Removing a duvet cover and replacing with another can be done in a jiffy. It can also be quickly folded just like a fitted sheet and put away for later use; and not take up a lot of space.

5. You can always convert it to a flat sheet

This one is for the DIY enthusiasts! The Duvet Cover usually has same design on both sides and you can easily convert it to get at least one flat bedsheet or two; howbeit a size smaller but can come in handy for the Kiddies’ bedrooms. This is a great option to try out during the hot months when Duvets are just not what you want to get into at night.

5 Ways To Know If You Need A New Pillow

pillow-changeWe spend almost a third of our lives in bed and so it’s no surprise it’s easy to get so used to our favourite bedding such as pillows. However pillows can also accumulate dead skin, dirt, oil and dust mites that can cause skin irritations and aggravate allergies.Therefore we need to maintain them well and when need comes for it, change it.

Pillows should be changed regularly and if you’re not sure the frequency of change, here are some quick ways to know if you need a new pillow.

pillow change II

1. Fold it in Half

Try folding your pillow in half. If the pillow does not spring back to its usual flat form but stays folded, then it’s time to get a new pillow. However this method is best used for checking non-foam pillows such as Feather or Bounce back pillows and it should not be used to check foam pillows (such as memory pillows)

2. Feel for Lumps

Feel every inch of your pillow for lumps. If you feel lumps then it should be changed. Apart from being used for too long, these lumps also accumulate if the pillow is not properly fluffed after washing. However, this makes the pillow less comfortable to use and by not providing proper support during sleep, may lead to a lower back pain situation.

3. Check the Colour

What’s the colour of the pillow when the pillowcase and protector is taken off? If it is now yellow in colour as opposed to its white colour when you bought it newly, then you should get a new one. The colour change is a strong indicator that you have been using it for a long time as the discoloration is usually as a result of accumulation of body oils and drool whilst asleep.

4. Consider the type

Pillow labels or type usually come with an estimated lifespan. For instance, our Memory pillows can last for up to 10 years while our Bounce Back Pillows can last for about 8 years. While this duration is subject to factors such as frequency of use and maintenance rate, under optimal conditions, this can give you an indication of when to change it

5. Check the Size

This is how to know a pillow is the right size for you – Your forehead and chin are at the same height when your head is lying on the pillow. If it is not at the same height, then it means it is not the right size for you and will not provide adequate support.

Getting a New Duvet? This Is What To Look Out For

getting-a-new-duvet-coverAlthough most of us have been buying and using duvets for years. We may not be sure of what makes a good duvet or what type we should be using. This is a quick guide on what to check in duvet before eventually selecting one. Keep reading!

The Tog Rating

togThe performance of duvets is usually according to togs, which is a measurement of thermal insulation. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet. Such information enables the buyer to select a duvet suitable for that particular season. High togs such as 14 are appropriate for winter, while medium togs such as 8-10 will be perfect for cold, rainy seasons.

The Duvet Filling

duvet fillingsDuvets usually have natural or synthetic fillings. Natural fills could be got from either Duck or Geese and include Downs (the soft, light clusters found under the feathers of ducks and geese) or Feathers (which contain quills and so are firmer than downs). These natural fillings are a lot more expensive however.

Synthetic fibre fillings that could be microfiber or hollow fibre are a great alternative. They are not less effective than a natural filled duvet, but need more filling to be as effective as natural fillings. They are also less expensive and more practical as they can be machine washed and tumble dried.

Between the microfiber and hollow fibre synthetic fillings, the microfiber is the closest in feel to the natural down as it is lighter and softer than the microfiber.

The Duvet Size

Duvets come in normal bed sizes. However, unless your bed has got a bedding skirt, it is advisable to get a duvet that is a size up from the size of your bed. This in turn makes the bed more appealing and still leaves a lot to hold if you will be sharing the bed with someone.

What To Look For When Getting A Duvet Cover

what-to-look-for-when-getting-a-duvet-coverDuvet Cover is that decorative and protecting covering that goes over your Duvet.

As more than one cover can be used for a duvet, there is usually the need to get an extra cover to go with the duvet. Beyond going for unique designs and colours to give that classic look to a room, there are some extra things you should really look out for.

For Duvet Covers

Fabric Weight

fabric-weightWhen selecting a Duvet Cover, ensure you go for sheet weight fabric and not Heavy upholstery grade textiles. A lot of people think that a heavy Duvet Cover when combined with a Duvet is great to keep warm, however that is not true. While the Duvet Cover may look great on the bed, it will weigh too much and lessen the insulating properties. And of course, there is still the part of you sleeping under a lot of weight which you may not enjoy.

Fabric Texture

fabric-texture

When purchasing a Duvet Cover, get one with a soft textile that is easy to wash. This is really important as you will be washing it more often than the Duvet. We strongly recommend that you go for 100% Cotton Duvet Covers as cotton fabrics are hypoallergenic and breathable. Cotton sheets feel cool to the touch on warm day and can provide warmth on chilly days.

Functional Details

These include the duvet components that make it easy to use or able to last longer. For example, Duvet Covers from us come with a hidden Velcro closure so you can easily pull it open and close. The Velcro closure is a much better option than the button closure as buttons easily break during laundry.
