You might have heard about what others say about thread count- the higher the thread count, the more comfortable the sheets. But some say that a higher thread count doesn’t necessarily mean that your sheets are soft because manufacturers can alter them by enhancing them with silicone softeners that disappear after the first wash. Comfortable sheets are those that are 100% cotton and not the 1000-thread count. Egyptian cottons, Pima cottons or combed cottons are good choices but if you want a more affordable option, polyester/percale blend is best
Speaking of percale, some people may ask which is better percale or satin? Actually, it is just a matter of taste. Percale is a plain, matte weave that has a crisp, cool feel which are perfect for those who gets overheated when they sleep. Sateen is very soft, with a lustrous, smooth finish that’s almost like satin. You can try touching the fabrics and compare which one you would prefer to lay your backs on.
Well, no matter what kind of bed sheet you choose, it’s important to treat them well so that they will last for a long time. Using fabric softeners could eat away fabrics and it’s putting a coating of chemical that make your sheets softer but are actually damaging the fabric. Washing sheets in hot water and over drying them in high heat would cause the threads to break faster. If you want to extend the life of your sheets, always use lukewarm water and do not dry them on high heat.
