Luxury sheets aren’t only found in the top hotels around the world but are available for purchase to experience the luxury in the comfort of your own home.
Over the past few decades, two types of sheets have become popular in the hotel industries for their multiple benefits – bamboo and eucalyptus sheets. Each has unique properties that make them ideal for use in the hotel industry while also offering maximum benefit for home use.
The benefits of eucalyptus sheets do, however, outshine those of bamboo sheets in the following ways:
Eucalyptus sheets are long-wearing and long-lasting, a definite bonus for the hotel industry where replacing sheets can be very expensive on an ongoing basis. For home use, this benefit means that your initial outlay to purchase these sheets will be of greater value in the long run. Unless something unforeseen happens (such as a rip or tear), these sheets should provide many years of quality comfort before needing to be replaced.
Eucalyptus has a menthol odor and is well-known for opening the nasal passages and unblocking stuffy noses for a better night’s rest. Eucalyptus sheets are, therefore, the ideal choice for those suffering from respiratory illnesses such as asthma. When cold and flu season arrives, these sheets are the optimal choice. The best eucalyptus sheets have properties that may even help with reducing incurable snoring that is a result of congestion of the nasal passages.
Another eucalyptus property is that it repels those tiny critters that are invisible to the naked eye and can infest beds, linen, and other materials. Dust mites exist everywhere and are a hazard for allergy sufferers and those with respiratory illnesses. Bed bugs leave nasty, itchy bites, and drink your blood while you are asleep. Repelling these bed bugs and dust mites with eucalyptus sheets will provide a far more hygienic and better night’s rest.
Microorganisms are the tiny, unseen biological organisms that exist everywhere and contribute to a whole range of health conditions. Bacteria and mold spores are just two of these types of invisible threats. Both these microorganisms thrive in wet environments. Eucalyptus sheets dry 30% faster than other types of sheets (including bamboo sheets), meaning that there is less chance of either bacteria or mold growing on the material.
This is also beneficial while sleeping. Respiration is deeper when sleeping, meaning that the amount of moisture expelled naturally with each breath is also increased. This moisture can make sheets damp and clammy, make for an uncomfortable sleep, and give bacteria and mold the ideal habitat to reproduce. The faster drying properties of eucalyptus sheets, therefore, help you enjoy a better night’s rest while combating disease-causing microorganisms.
Eucalyptus sheets are wrinkle and crease-resistant. This is partially due to their tough and durable nature and the much faster drying capacity. The sheets can be placed directly onto the bed from the dryer or the laundry line without requiring ironing. Even if the sheets are slightly creased when first placed on the bed, the heat from your body should be sufficient to eliminate these wrinkles. You will also experience the comfort of smooth sheets that don’t bunch up, making it difficult to sleep.
Soft, Softer, Softest
Eucalyptus sheets are incredibly soft, but you may notice some stiffness when you first purchase them for your bed. This stiffness will disappear after the first wash, and it is always recommended to wash new sheets no matter what materials they are made from. The sheets will continue to get softer and softer every time they are washed, making for a more comfortable sleeping experience. However, this will not compromise the durability of the sheets, so feel free to wash as often as necessary.
The best eucalyptus sheets are of a much higher quality than sheets that are made from other types of materials. However, like all things in life, not all eucalyptus sheets are manufactured t the same quality standards. It is recommended to do a little research into a specific brand or manufacturer to determine whether they offer the highest quality sheets on the market. Check out their reviews to find complements and complaints about their products.
Alternatively, find out if they provide their products to any hotels or other establishments in your area. Check-in at the relevant hotel and experience first-hand the quality, comfort, and luxury that eucalyptus sheets offer.
While the benefits of using eucalyptus sheets vs. bamboo sheets are clear, they often come down to value for money. These two types of sheets are similar in cost; however, they differ in value. The long-lasting nature of eucalyptus sheets automatically puts them in the category of great value. However, additional health and comfort benefits provide extra value.
