Want your sheets to last longer? Do these three things.
1. Don’t sleep in polyester. It wears out cotton sheets much faster than if you wore a natural fiber nightgown like cotton or silk – or you can just go naked.
2. Overdrying your sheets taxes the fibers and decreases the life of your investment. In fact, if you can line dry, that’s the best option. It’s also better for allergies as the sun kills dust mites that aren’t killed by dryer heat.
3. Use mild detergent and avoid bleach and brighteners.
