  • Have a consistent sleep time

Sleep experts recommend having a consistent time for sleeping and waking every day. This sets a regular sleep-wake rhythm for your body and prevents you from feeling groggy when you wake up. You can create a consistent sleep time by setting reminders and planning your activities to not exceed your scheduled sleep time.

  • Check what’s on your dinner menu

Ideally, it is recommended that you do not have dinner beyond 7 pm. However, heavy food and beverages like caffeine have a tendency of making you feel too heavy and can alter your sleep pattern. Ingesting a lot of liquid a few hours before bedtime can also disrupt your sleep time by inducing you to visit the rest room all through the night. Focus on eating right and light!

  • Mentally prepare for sleep

Mental preparation of sleep is what you achieve when you look forward to bed time rather than worry on if you would experience difficulty falling asleep as you may have in the time past. Attempt to get your mind better relaxed by engaging in activities that are relaxing such as great time with family and not activities that induce stress or great energy exertion.

  • De-clutter your bedroom

Reserve your sleeping space for just sleep alone. Bringing work to the bedroom or having a lot on your bed can affect your sleep pattern. Also, as much as television in the bedroom aid in relaxation, eliminate exposure to news that usually have stressful topics or disturbing content.

  • Invest in quality bedding

This matters a lot as it is what you have to actually lay on to sleep. Invest in luxury bedding such as Bedsheets Express’ offers and also pay attention to the laundry care of it so the fibres will not wear out before time. laundry-bedsheet

How To Wash Throw Pillows At Home

#bedsheetsexpress-throwpillow-wash

We all love clean homes. The fresh scent that hits us when we get in through the door welcomes us and makes us feel invigorated and welcome.

However, a clean home does not come by accident. It comes about intentionally, by paying attention to small items such as our decorative pieces. Throw pillows are one of them!

Throw Pillows have the tendency to suck in a lot of dirt and body oil and taking care of them can be a hassle.

We’ve got that handled with these tips and step-by-step guide on how to wash them

Some General tips;

  • Always check the washing instructions and if there is none, understand that Foam-filled throw pillows with cotton covers can be washed at home – with a washing machine as well while we recommend that throw pillows covered with delicate fabrics such as suede, wool or silk, or stuffed with down or feathers will need to be throw-pillowsdry-cleaned.
  • Also, note the nature of pillow filler before you commence. Solid foam pillow fillers will need to be soaked for a while in warm water and then rinsed until the water is clean and air dried. Putting the foam in a dryer is not recommended as it may destroy the foam shape. However, cleaning the cover and airing the pillow will be a great alternative if you are not sure of the nature of the filler.
    • To wash at home;
      You need the following – Sponge, a mild laundry detergent and a pre-wash spray (optional)
  • Remove the cover of the throw pillow (most are removable). Check for stains on the cover and treat it with the pre-wash spray by rubbing the spray into the stain and leaving to dry for a few minutes
  • Hand-wash the pillow case or the whole pillow with warm water and detergent or select the gentle-wash cycle to wash with a washing machine. However, you should wash the cover separately from the pillow.
  • Hang to dry completely in a well-ventilated area. Do not use the pillow while it is damp. Wet pillow stuffing can develop a musty odour if it is damp for too long.
  • Gently use your hand to fluff your pillow and shape it to fit into the pillow cover.

3 Reasons To Make Your Bed

There are two types of people on Earth; those who make their beds or get someone to do it and those who do not!
those-who-make-their-bedthose-who-dont-make-their-bed
If you are in the first group, we are beaming big smiles at you! However, if you are in the second group, here are three reasons why you should make your bed.

making-your-bed-helps-you-rest-better

It helps you rest better
Making your bed means you get to declutter your resting area and leave the bed to be just your sleeping sanctuary. Consistently making your bed and keeping other factors like overall bedroom cleanliness, minimal noise and optimal temperature constant helps you go to sleep on time and get better rest.

It is important for your health
Making your bed in the morning means that you keep dust mites and dirt at a minimal level. This is very important for anyone that has got allergies, that has got pets, eats in bed or sometimes goes to bed without a night bath (We all know it happens sometimes)

sound-internal-state-of-order

It contributes to your internal state of order
Constantly leaving your bed untidy could be a strong indicator of disorder in other areas of your life. The neat appearance of your bed and your bedroom matters and paying attention to such detail that is considered small will go some way in signalling your level of balance, growth and internal state of order.

Coming home to a well-made bed provides a sort of encouragement and relief.

And finally, ending with this solid words Admiral William H. McRaven said in his commencement speech, at University of Texas,

If you want to change the world, start by making your bed.”

His logic: You can’t do the big stuff right if you can’t do the little stuff right.

Five Things To Know About Bedding

5 Tips To Know About Bedding

One of the secrets that guarantee a great night’s sleep is your bedding, however,apart from the sheets themselves, some other factors come together to make your sleep time a relaxing time and we at Bedsheets Express know that.

So, we compiled five things you should know about bedding.

  1. Thread Count:

As much as a lot of packaged bedding comes with high thread marks stated on it, the quality of the thread is what matters most. The feel of the bedding should be soft, and our soft sheets are one of such that simply get better with time.

Thread count is a measure of the quality of a fabric, especially a bed sheet. The higher the thread count the more luxurious the sheet. Click To Tweet
  1. Protectors:

By this, we mean the Mattress and Pillow protectors. The protectors work by serving as a barrier to prevent dirt or dust on the pillow case or bed sheet from penetrating and settling into the pillow and mattress. If you have not already started using this, this may seem as a non-issue but when you take a moment to visualize cleaning your sheets and laying it on that mattress without protector that has absorbed some significant matter, it seems like you are dwelling in dirt all over.  However, having a protector helps to trap all that dirt that you can easily pull off and wash and continue to maintain that fresh cleanliness you love.

  1. Lifespan:

Bedding is not a lifelong product. However its lifespan also depends on factors such as: laundry care given to it, frequency of use, and quality of the bedding. We recommend you get fresh sheets when the fibre becomes weak or pilling starts on it.

  1. Colour Combination:

We recommend that you consider the tone you want to adopt in your room when buying that new bedding. The colour of your bedding when it is in consonance with the other colours you already have in your room helps in making your room visually stimulating and soothing for relaxation. Thankfully, at Bedsheets Express, we have diverse colours that you can choose from.

  1. Laundry Care:

This is important as it influences the lifespan of your bedding. We recommend that you wash your bedding with cold water and not hot water, as hot water can break down the fibres, making the sheets break down easily. Also, wash the sheets alone without adding any extra fabric especially coloured fabric. That way, you do not risk another clothing staining your bedding.
