Bamboo sheets review
In my last blog post I talked about bamboo bedding, now let's have a closer look at bamboo sheets. I’m going to look at some of the best bamboo sheets available for us to purchase online.
I live in hot and humid part of the world and I always used to have cotton sheets until I discovered bamboo sheets. I knew I had to find an alternative to cotton sheets as my husband does not want the window open all night or the AC blowing cool over him either. I use wake up many times during the night so hot and clammy, broken sleep is not pleasant.
The cooler months of the year are ok, but the summer months when its 30c at night is too hot for me to get a decent night’s sleep. I had tried everything from cotton sheets to light duvet cover to a light blanket, even polyester sheets, which were the most horrible sheets ever! So, it was either a fan, no good when it’s too hot, AC on all night, husband not happy or the window open, just as bad, warm coming into the bedroom and mozzies.
A friend of mine told me about a bamboo sheet set she bought and she gushed about wonderful they were. I thought, well, let’s give them a try, but before I purchased any I read some bamboo sheets reviews and work out which was best for me. Just about every review said the same thing about how these sheets were a cure for everything, do I believe them or not?
The sheer amount of properties the sheets had and the rave reviews made me a little suspicious of the claims. Things like being antibacterial, antimicrobial, softer then Egyptian cotton, longer lasting and most importantly being able to regulate body temperature, too good to be true or not?
I bought some ivory colored Cariloha bamboo sheets in King size direct from Amazon and at first I thought I can’t sleep on these because of the smell. After reading some reviews of these sheets, it seems there is an initial smell to any bamboo bedding products, but luckily enough after a week the smell went away.
I bought the sheets last summer and I’ve had them every day since, apart from a wash once a week. Funnily enough they do get softer after every wash, incredible but true! I can now sleep without having the AC on or having the window open or using the fan, maybe I should have looked into these sheets before.
The comparison between bamboo sheets and cotton sheets is massive, one is cool and refreshing to sleep on and the other is hot and sticky. I’ve now bought bamboo pillows and a bamboo duvet cover too, next on the list is some bamboo towels for the bathroom. No more hot and sticky night’s is like a dream and I do have pleasant dreams as well now!
If you are a non-believer, then try and convert yourself to the best bamboo sheets, you will not regret it. Have a read of this bamboo sheets review for more information.
