7 Reasons Why Bamboo Bed Sheets And Towels Are Better Than Your Old Ones
Sleeping soundly on the sailboat and under the humid weather is a luxury nowadays. I’m actually used to the heat because I lived in the Middle East for almost 4 years. But compared to the Middle East where even our toilets have a small aircon, we only have a fan in our sailboat.
Jonathan and I are becoming sweaty sleepers here and sometimes it can be really gross. Haha. I swear I’d do anything to get a good night’s sleep! I’ve been researching on ways on how to get one like drinking milk before bedtime, exercising, eating good food, etc.
What really surprised me on the course of my research is that the linen we’re using greatly affects our sleep.. So immediately, I got a King Size Fitted Sheets, Flat Sheets, Pillow Cases & Duvet Cover Packs, Bamboo Travel Blankets, and Bamboo Towel Sets all from BedVoyage ♡
You might be wondering what’s so great about these Bamboo Bed Sheets and what all the fuzz is about. I’ll give you 7 Reasons Why These Bamboo Bed Sheets And Towels Are Better Than Your Old Ones (Aside from them being new, of course)
1) It is luxuriously soft!
It’s really soft but not too much like a silk linen. The texture is more like better than cotton but never too silky-- you’ll definitely experience comfort and luxury in your sleep and in your bath.
Customers of Bedvoyage (like us) leave wonderful comments such as, ‘it’s like your sheets are hugging you’, ‘it’s like slipping into butter’, and ‘I make snow angels when I get into bed!’. Personally, we felt like being caressed by the clouds.
2) Bamboo is a natural hypoallergenic
You won’t have to worry about your skin allergies including eczema or psoriasis with these bamboo fibers. These bedsheets and towels are hypoallergenic, antibacterial and antifungal. (That’s already 3 reasons haha)
Additionally, BedVoyage does not to treat their fabrics with chemicals which means that they are formaldehyde-free unlike most wrinkle-resistant cotton, and do not contain flame retardant chemicals which cause allergic reactions in many people.
3) It is thermoregulating
This means that the sheets are cold when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. It’s a highly breathable fabric, senses your body temperature, and adjusts accordingly. This is very beneficial for couples like me and Jonathan who sleeps differently. It’s the perfect sleeping/bathing companion through all kinds of weather.
4) It has deodorizing properties
I hate smelly sheets & towels and I’m sure you do too! Odors are not as easily absorbed by rayon from Bamboo. This deodorizing property keeps them fresh for a longer time than your old ones. Goodbye to that mildew scent you usually get with your wet towels from your gym bag! Trust me. You’ll see the difference when you get one. :)
5) It is eco-friendly
Bamboo holds the Guinness World Record as the fastest growing plant. It can grow up to 3 feet per day and reach heights of up to 98 feet all without the aid of fertilizers or pesticides. In contrast, non-organically grown cotton accounts for 24% of global pesticide sales and 11% of global fertilizer sales. Bamboo stalks are cut at harvest, not pulled out by the root, allowing stalks to re-grow from the existing root. This makes bamboo an excellent tool for soil conservation.
Bamboo likewise plays a critical role in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide. It releases 35% more oxygen and takes in 5 times the volume of greenhouse gasses as an equivalent stand of trees. Furthermore, bamboo requires 1/3 the amount of water that cotton does.
6) It is moisture wicking
Rayon from Bamboo has an interesting quality of being three times more absorbent than cotton. The micro-structure of bamboo, with its gaps and holes, draw the moisture away from the body faster than cotton. It keeps you drier throughout the night-- perfect for sweaty sleepers!
7) It lasts long
Wash it over a hundred times and it will still feel and look the same as the first time you had it. It can last for 3-5 years depending on how often you wash it. I’m not exaggerating here. The colors never fade as BedVoyage uses a reactive dye to keep the colors deep and true. Feel free to check out verified reviews from Amazon.
I never want to sleep/bathe on any fabric again when I felt the difference when we first used these bamboo fabric. Jonathan and I had a deep, comfortable, luxurious, & perfect sleep and bath. Now that I’ve experienced what a luxurious bath and sleep feels like, I’m never settling for anything less. I really feel like I’m living in a 5-star hotel and spa ♡
