Well, winter is clearly gone. And with spring in the air, it’s time to give your bedding a refreshing makeover. Out with the (c)old, and in with the new! Here’s a guide to cleaning your winter bedding and selecting cool options for the spring season.
Spring Cleaning Your Bedding
- Start with Clean Sheets: Remove all sheets, pillowcases, and blankets from your bed.
- Machine* Wash: Launder them, including cushions, in your washing machine for a fresh start.
- Duvet Covers: Pay special attention to duvet covers as they can be easily refreshed. You can also wash your duvet*.
- Mattress Protector: If you have a mattress protector (always a good idea), don’t forget to wash it as well.
- Throw Blankets: Toss throw blankets in the wash* for a complete overhaul.
*Check the washing instructions on the bedding label/packaging before you wash it. Consider making use of professional cleaning services if you are unsure.
Now that your winter bedding is clean, fold it neatly and store it in the cupboard for next winter. Then get cool and creative with spring bedding.
Cool Bedding Choices for Spring
- Lightweight Fabrics: Opt for breathable fabrics like cotton or linen for your sheets and duvet covers.
- Pastel Colors: Choose pastel-coloured bedding to embrace the springtime vibes.
- Cooling Technology: Consider bedding with cooling technology for added comfort on warm nights. Also, consider buying a new pillow with cooling gel to avoid waking up in a puddle of sweat.
- Layering: Layer your bed with a lightweight quilt or blanket that can be easily removed as temperatures rise.
- Floral Prints: Add a touch of nature to your bedding with floral prints.
By following these tips and selecting cool bedding options, you’ll create a cosy, refreshed sleeping space perfectly suited for the spring season.
