It’s impossible to feel relaxed and get a good night’s sleep if your bedsheets feel uncomfortable. Consequently, buying the right bedsheets is more important than you might think. Specifically, the material your sheets are made out of is a top priority.
Nowadays, there are more and more bedsheets on the market made from microfibers. These microfiber sheets have become very popular, but are they the right choice for you. In this article, we look at the pros and cons of these sheets to see what all the fuss is about.
The main advantage of microfiber sheets is that they’ve woven using advanced technology in laboratories. As a result of this, the fibers are so finely woven that they become incredibly tight which causes them to be very good at repelling stains. If a sheet is stained, it can pretty much be wiped off straight away without leaving any traces.
The second advantage of microfiber sheets is their ability to dry very quickly. This means that you don’t have to wait around for almost an entire day for your bed sheets to dry. It takes a lot of stress out of washing your sheets, which is perfect if you have unexpected guests and need to clean your bed sheets quickly before they arrive.
As mentioned earlier, these sheets are very tightly woven. Consequently, they’re exceptionally strong and durable. This means they will last a long time and will be very hard to rip. Furthermore, this doesn’t compromise the texture or feel of the sheets. They’re still soft and extremely comfortable to the touch.
Finally, microfiber sheets are great for people with allergies as they repel any dust or airborne allergens.
While these sheets can be washed and dried quickly, they do have a tendency to shrink when you first wash them. Following this, colors have been known to fade quite quickly too.
Finally, while high-quality microfiber sheets are strong and durable, there are plenty of low-quality ones that are weak and rip easily. This poses a problem as you’re forced to pay for the more expensive items or else risk buying a sheet that rips.
All in all, there are many advantages and disadvantages of these sheets. They’re a great option for people with allergies, that’s probably their main selling point. In the end, it all comes down to your personal preference. If you don’t want a microfiber sheet, then there are other, more eco-friendly options out there such as good old cotton sheets.
