Sometimes you can’t have the most luxurious of everything. We often have to pick and choose which items we spend more on and which items we can spend a little less on. Take paper towels for example. Some people want the best paper towels money can buy because when they are thicker they just seem to clean up the spills better. Others think it’s only going to clean up a spill and then it gets thrown away so why spend so much? It’s all in what you want and how you want to spend your money.
When it comes to things that don’t get thrown away, things you need to last a long time, then that when spending a little more can be the right choice. Another example is when you invest in new towels and wash clothes. Bed linens is another. You buy these things and use them over and over for a number of years hopefully and when you invest in those made with the best quality, they will last that long.
Most of us like thick cushy bath towels, but they can be expensive too. You dry off with them after you get out of the tub or shower and then toss them in the hamper. Your exposure to them is all of 5 minutes or less. When it comes to your bed sheets and pillow slips, well, that’s another matter! You spend all night long on those sheets and with your head cradled on that pillow. You NEED it to be soft and comfortable .
This is where buying Egyptian cotton sheets can really make the difference in a good night’s sleep and a great night’s sleep. Egyptian cotton isn’t called Luxury of the Pharaohs for nothing. Cotton grown in Egypt makes some of the best sheets, towels and clothing in the world. The secret is in the long fibers of the cotton. When spun, it can be made into thinner threads that have a more silky texture. Once made into fabric, the difference is obvious.
Since having the best night’s sleep we can possibly get is so important to most of us, it just makes sense to sleep on the best sheets you can buy for the money. Even though Egyptian cotton can be a little more expensive, especially for the higher thread counts, it will be well worth the investment. They will last longer, feel softer and in turn be more comfortable throughout the whole night. Using fabric softeners isn’t even necessary to keep them soft because the more they are washed the softer they get!
While you can often find sheets with higher thread counts in department stores in a range of sizes and colors, it’s not always easy to find Egyptian cotton. Searching on line is going to yield you the most choices in all areas for size, colors, thread count and specialty sizes.
Let’s face it, these days most of us have to stretch our dollars as far as we can, but it just makes more sense to spend more when we are getting more. You can buy cheaper sheets made from plain old cotton and spend less money, but they will wear out and have to be replaced much sooner and they are not going to be as luxurious to sleep on. Spend more and get the Egyptian cotton and you will have a nicer looking, longer lasting and sheets that are closer to sleeping on silk than cotton!
