All you must know about bedding


1. Choose the best Material

When deciding on the fill of your comforter or pillows, also consider the lifespan of the material. Down-filled pillows and comforters hold up better than synthetic stuffings. You'll need to replace synthetic fills every two years, while down-filled items can last up to a decade.

The right fill for a comforter or pillow depends on the person. Just like with materials, there are many options.

Down fills are made from goose feathers and can help naturally regulate temperature, but they also tend to be one of the more expensive options and are prone to allergens. Polyester fills are budget-friendly, but they're not as good at regulating temperature. Memory foam conforms to your body—making it perfect for pillows—but it also tends to trap heat. Gel pillows, on the other hand, give your neck the same support as memory foam while offering a cooler surface.

3. Standard size

Most linens come in standard sizes, but it's important to measure your bed to make sure they'll fit, especially if you have a bulky mattress. Measure the width, depth, and length of your mattress to determine sheet size. Popular sizes include:

• Twin: 39 x 75 inch

• Twin XL: 39 x 80 inch

• Full: 54 x 75 inch

• Queen: 60 x 80 inch

• King: 76 x 80 inch

• King of California: 72 x 84 inch

 4. Care Considerations

The best way to extend the life of your linens is to carefully follow laundry care labels. Sheets, pillowcases, comforters, blankets, and more are all equipped with standard icons to indicate instructions for drying, washing, dry-cleaning, ironing, and bleaching. Pay attention to these labels before purchasing the product to make sure you're willing to commit to the item's care needs. Frequent washing will break down material quality, while hot temperatures can shrink fibers.

Machine wash icons use dots to indicate water temperature. The more dots, the hotter the water. .

A hand wash icon is self explanatory—the item should not go in a washing machine. 

Do not wash icons indicate that the item can not be laundered, and likely it need to be dry-cleaned. 

Triangles indicate whether or not the item should be bleached. A plain triangle icon means you can bleach, while triangles with an X through them are classified as do not bleach icons.

A non-chlorine bleach icon is a triangle with lines through it. 

A square represents the dry icon. Similar to the wash icon, small dots indicate which temperature to dry the item on. And if the square has a circle inside of it, the item can be tumble dried. 

Squares with Xs through them are do not dry icons. 

A small iron icon explains that the item can be ironed, while an iron with an X through it is a do not iron icon. 

Finally, an open circle is the dry clean icon, while a circle with an X through it is the do not dry clean icon.
