Bamboo Sheets VS Egyptian Cotton?
Bamboo Sheets VS Egyptian CottonThanks to their incredible softness, bamboo sheets or bamboo bedding sets are rising rapidly in popularity. Not only are they Eco-friendly, they are also anti-bacterial, and hypoallergenic. This makes bamboo an all natural material that is anti-fungal and naturally deodorizing which means that your sheets will remain fresh for a longer period of time.
Egyptian cotton has long been touted as an ultimate luxury in bed linen. Odd as it may be, sheets that have been made out of bamboo have risen in popularity over the last several years. They offer an excellent value, a soft silky sensation on the skin, and an anti-microbial quality that is unsurpassed. They're ideal for those who sweat a lot while sleeping. They can help reduce irritation to the skin and there are many great options to select from.
Let's face it, a person spends approximately one-third of their life in bed. Therefore, spending money on quality sheets is a good and sound investment to ensure a quality nights sleep. Egyptian cotton varies in how plush it is. It goes by a thread count per square inch.
when compared to such sheets, bamboo is a much sounder and better investment. They're up to three times as soft and they're in the region of $100 however, they're so creamy in texture that you'll never want to try anything else. Bamboo is always about 3 degrees lower in temperature than other sheets. Those 3 degrees can rapidly add up which means you'll feel a lot less clammy when you wake up in the morning.
This alone is reason enough to invest in Bamboo sheets. Many are turning to this especially in humid areas. Another reason is that they appeal to the Eco-friendly generations. Bamboo isn't a wood, it's a grass. It's one of the more sustainable plants on the planet and frequently utilized on farms as it grows rapidly. Cotton, on the other hand, is very labor intensive and will require more water as well as labor. The bamboo will yield more as much as ten times more per acre and will require up to 20 percent less water.
Bamboo is an all natural hypoallergenic product which makes it a good choice for anyone who suffers from eczema or other skin conditions. Since they're antibacterial and anti-fungal they also deodorize the sheets meaning that you won't have to wash them as frequently. Finally, after six months of sleeping on bamboo, I can tell you that they never lose their silkiness, even after being washed repeatedly.
