Miracle sheets use antimicrobial silver to kill germs. It may sound a little strange to be sleeping on sheets made of silver threads but comfort hasn’t been sacrificed. These sheets are soft and luxurious. 

The signature sheets are made with a percale weave to keep you cool and crisp throughout the night (more of a cotton feel). Extra Luxe sheets are made with a sateen weave for an ultra-luxurious, silky feel. 

Choose from Signature or Extra Luxe

Extra Luxe are bestsellers but the difference between them is

  • Signature is made from Premium 350-thread-count cotton. These have a more traditional cotton feel.
  • Extra Luxe is made from USA-grown Supima cotton, one of the highest quality cottons in the world, and are 500-thread count sateen weave set is designed for an ultra-luxurious, smooth, and silky feel.

Both have natural silver.

Miracle Brand Sheet Set Extra Luxe made with all-natural silver that kills 99.9% of bacteria

What Sheet Sets Include
2 pillowcases, 1 fitted sheet, and 1 flat sheet (twin size comes with one pillowcase).

Sizes
Full, Queen, King, Cal King

Antibacterial Miracle Sheets and Towels eliminate bacteria growth in your beds and bathrooms. Wash after wash, Miracle Sheets and Towels stay soft, durable, and protect your skin from odor-causing bacteria.

Colors:
They come in white, Stone and Sky Blue. The biggest complaint others have had is that they wished there were more colors to choose from.

Read the High Ratings

How Do They Work?

A process called ionization. Silver ions in the fabric naturally maintain a positive charge that attaches to bacteria like a magnet before it has a chance to reproduce, leaving you with cleaner skin. They claim it prevents 99.9% of bacteria growth from the inside out before it has a chance to reproduce.

While they say it’s a miracle, even if silver helps cut down on bacteria and hopefully allergens, these sheets are breathable, soft and highly rated by customers.

Is There Science Behind it?

We checked to see what research or tests back up their claims. These were done on towels:

  • They hired an independent agency in Maryland whose mission is to reduce the transmission of infections in the communities they serve. The doctors in this agency have over 20 years of academic research experience and have worked on numerous research initiatives including the use of antimicrobial surfaces in healthcare environments. The lab tests products that reduce pathogens on environmental surfaces including soft linen goods. Towels were tested with and without silver woven technology. All towels without silver technology reduced bacteria by 0%. All towels with Miracle silver reduced bacteria by 99.998%.

Doesn’t the Silver Wash Out?

  • They also ran multiple independent tests where towels were repeatedly washed. Miracle towels were removed at 25, 50, 75 and 100 wash intervals to see if the antibacterial system was washed away in any of these instances. The results revealed that the towels remained 99.9% effective even after 100 washes. So your towel will always be as effective for the lifetime of the product.

How Are They Different? 

Unlike conventional sheets, these help with smell, are more sanitary, wash less frequently, and actually improve your skin.  

What Are They Made Of?

Miracle Sheets are made of 95% high-quality USA-made Supima cotton and 5% natural silver for the Luxe and cotton for the Signature (type of cotton not stated). Silver prevents the growth of bacteria. By twisting these fibers with 100% long staple cotton, you get softness and absorbency. 

This fabric is amazing!

My husband sweats a lot in his sleep and I was having to change his pillowcase every second day. At least twice a year I’ve had to throw his pillow away and replace it because of the staining and smell from so much sweat. These new pillow cases last the entire week between washes and they don’t smell! I got the pillow cases to try before getting the sheets but I’ll definitely be getting the sheets next! What an awesome product!

Who Are They Best For?

Everyone! They protect your family from harmful bacteria and save you time in the laundry room. But, while they may resist germs and bacteria, it won’t perform the miracle of not having to wash your sheets. You still need to (sorry), just maybe less often.

Because we’re not looking under a microscope (yet) it’s tough to know for sure about the antibacterial claim. However, most customers talk about how soft and comfortable the sheets are and how they don’t smell. So if you sleep sweaty or your bedding gets stinky, this may be what you need.

Besides sheets, Miracle Sheets features antibacterial sheets and towels.

3 Benefits Of Miracle Sheets And Towels:

An average towel is comprised with bacteria and mold even after its first use.

1) Miracle products can be washed up to 3X less frequently than traditional linens.

2) It is a self cleaning product. When there is no bacteria, there is no odor!

3) Miracle products eliminate acne-causing bacteria, which means healthier skin for you. 

 

Miracle Towels 

These deluxe cotton and silver bathroom hand towels are made of ultra-durable and fade-resistant fabric, feature maximum absorbency, and dry quickly. They prevent up to 99.9% of odor-causing bacterial growth.

Dimensions (L x W): 18 x 28 inches; Weight: 0.5 pounds

Miracle Towels are manufactured from the world’s most famous long staple Indian cotton grown from the central part of India since the middle ages. Their manufacturing partner, located in India, has over 50 years of experience in the textile industry.

The natural silver fiber is made in North Carolina and air shipped to India to be spun and blended with long staple India cotton.

Gravity Blanket Black Friday

Want to know what Gravity Blanket’s Black Friday 2020 deals are? Well, like everything else, it’s not just for Black Friday. From now until Cyber Monday, save 30% off your purchase. Then after Cyber Monday it drops to 20%. Use code HOLIDAY 2020.

It’s more like Black November-December though. Because the Black Friday sale turns into a holiday sale that lasts until December 31st! One of our favorite Christmas gifts for ourselves or family/close friends is a quality blanket. Now’s the best time to get one, during the Black Friday/Holiday sale.

We may earn a commission and you may get deeper, more restful sleep when you shop through our links. That’s because a Gravity weighted blanket can improve your sleep.

In Gravity’s 2019 sleep study, 72% of participants reported deeper, more restful sleep and 76% reported falling asleep faster when using the Gravity Blanket.

Gravity Black Friday

Take 30% Off Everything!

Take 20% off Gravity sleep products including

  • Famous Gravity Weighted Blankets, including the classic, flannel and cotton ones and weighted blankets with ZIPPERS
  • Fun patterned duvet covers to go over your blanket
  • Weighted eye mask and robes – yes, a weighted robe
  • New Gravity Ice Hybrid Mattress (read our Gravity Mattress review)
  • Modernist flannel sheet sets, great gift idea for the guy in your life
  • Gravity Bamboo Sheets
  • Gravity Pillow

We think the red plaid flannel weighted blanket is the best Christmas gift!

Gravity

What I learned from reviewing 2 products made by Gravity for other mattress in a box brands – go with the original. Both were inferior compared to buying directly from Gravity. I LOVE the weighted eye mask and now have two of those because I don’t want to accidentally lose one of them.

Choose from 15, 20 or 25 lb single size weighted blankets or 35 king/queen versions. We recommend getting ones with zippers instead of ties.

Level Up your Weighted Blanket Style with Gravity’s Duvet Covers

Say goodbye to boring duvet covers! Each one has different fabric and properties (no more solid colors only, here!). Vineyard Brush, Sea Shore Stripe, and Midnight Iceberg are all made of a cooling polyester fabric that’s 100% breathable and wicks away moisture from the body during use.

We love that they have zippers on some of their weighted blankets because we know from experience how weight can tear off the corner ties. Gravity’s weighted blankets come with a cover in the same material as the weighted blanket insert. The two pieces are separate making it easy to separate and wash the outer cover. These are additional covers to change up the look or as stand alone blankets.

We think they’re more appropriately named, weighted BLANKET covers. And you can get flannel or cotton covers (gray or white) too. Lastly, if you need more luxury in your life, they’re available in faux fur!

 

Modernist Style Sleep Products for the Modern Man

Gravity sells their products at Bloomingdales and collaborated with award winning designer Ron Chereskin for their Modernist collection.

Buffy Comforter Review

Buffy is an online-only comforter company. They’ve since come out with some other products but they started with comforters. Their comforters are environmentally friendly, with eucalyptus harvested from regenerative forests in Austria and the Czech Republic. Even the thread they use is 100% recycled.

These are super comfortable comforters. However, we found they’re practically the opposite of what’s advertised in terms of how warm they sleep. Be sure to keep reading to help you pick the best one for you.

We may earn a commission and you’ll get more environmentally friendly, happy sleep when you shop through our links.

Buffy Comforter FREE TRIAL

No matter which Buffy comforter you choose, Buffy has a FREE TRIAL. Here’s how it works. You order the product and a hold will be placed on your card, to make sure it’s valid (it will say, processing on your statement). You’ll only be charged if you keep it. However, you only have 7 days to return it. Unlike a mattress, you don’t need a long time to test it out. So sleep on it immediately.

Which Buffy Comforter Should You Get?

There are 2 Buffy Comforters, the Breeze and The Cloud. Both are a thinner, lighter weight style comforter but they’re very different from each other both in the fabric they’re made of and how much they retain heat. Each is a down alternative comforter, with no real feathers. I appreciated that they’re both quiet – you know how some comforters are crunchy (not in the environmental sense) and you can hear the fabric move when the comforter does? Not these.

Also note that while the comforters are made with eucalyptus, they contain the plant, not the essential oil. There is no scent, so it’s safe for kids, animals and allergies.

Buffy Comforter and Duvet Cover Colors

Buffy comforters come in white only, with no dyes or bleaching. So if you want to change the color, get a Buffy duvet cover. The colors are created with plant-based, all natural dye. Choose from gray, pinkish and blue shades. 

  • Blush (so pretty, dusty rose color)
  • Light gray (almost off white) or Dark gray (still lighter)
  • Light blue or Dark blue (which is more a medium blue)
  • Soft Hemp duvet covers come in natural (light brown/tan), natural contrast (gorgeous) or white.

The Buffy Cloud Comforter

The Cloud is advertised as a cooler sleeping comforter. But we found it warm. Very warm. So if you’re cold and want to sleep toasty warm, get The Breeze.

The Cloud is a little fluffier and thicker overall than The Breeze. It’s made with soft renewable eucalyptus fibers which they make and they call polyester and if you read the label it’ll say polyester but instead of making it with recycled water bottles, like The Breeze, it’s made with renewable eucalyptus. Which uses 10% water to grow a eucalyptus tree than it does to grow cotton. It’s made from recycled water bottles. So if you feel guilty about all those water bottles you’ve thrown away at the gym then you’d better buy the Buffy comforter!

They said that so far they have this recycled over 6 million plastic bottles.

  • Shell is woven from Oeko-Tex certified, earth-friendly eucalyptus fiber
  • Each comforter recycles approximately 50 plastic bottles
  • Ultra-smooth fiber is naturally resistant to dust, mites, and mold
  • 100% eucalyptus fiber shell
  • 100% recycled PET, BPA-free fill
  • Super-soft, 300 single-ply thread count
  • Loops in every corner for duvet covers

Shop Now

The Buffy Breeze Comforter

The Buffy Breeze comforter features an outer layer made of eucalyptus, just like The Cloud. But the difference is on the inside, which is also made of eucalyptus too. They use eucalyptus fibers for the filling as well so again no goose feathers in either of these. So it saves the goose and if you have allergies…good for allergies but this one because of the eucalyptus on the inside it’s definitely cooler which was really nice for me in the summer.

  • Made entirely of Oeko-Tex certified, earth-friendly eucalyptus fiber
  • Wave stitching pattern keeps fill in place
  • Ultra-smooth fiber is naturally resistant to dust, mites, and mold
  • 100% eucalyptus fiber shell and 100% eucalyptus fiber fill
  • Super-soft, 300 single-ply thread count
  • Loops in every corner to accommodate cover ties

Care instructions include dry clean only, although we washed in gentle on cool and air dried with no issues. Some reviews complained about problems when dry cleaning which is why we skipped it (in addition to the extra cost and effort).

Prices for Queen Size Buffy Comforters

There’s a slight price difference in the Buffy Cloud vs Breeze

The queen size Buffy Breeze is $179

The queen size Buffy Cloud is $159

Comes in 3 sizes: twin/twin xl, full/queen, king/cal king.

Sleep Trial and Warranty

There is not a sleep trial, only the 7 day trial for Buffy products. Manufacturing defects may be covered after the 30-day return policy on a case-by-case basis. We think this is an inferior term compared to other online bedding companies, however, it fits with the company’s effort to reduce waste.

Idle gel memory foam mattress

Best Mattress for Side Sleepers? Idle Sleep Gel Plush Mattress

By | Bedding, Mattresses | 2 Comments

Of all the sleeping positions, side sleepers are most likely to need a very soft mattress. Side sleepers tend to have more pronounced pressure points at the hips and shoulders and so you need more cushioning at those points. The truth is, most side sleepers benefit from a soft mattress that gives and lets your spine align straighter.

So, the last thing a side sleeper needs is a firm mattress. If you’re searching for a new mattress, keep reading to see if this is the best mattress for you. We may earn a commission when you shop through our links.

Idle Sleep logoBest Mattress for Side Sleepers?

It can be hard to find a truly plush memory foam mattress online and one that’s thick enough for a side sleeper. Thankfully, Idle Sleep just came out with the Idle Plush Gel Memory Foam Mattress.

The Idle Plush Gel Memory Foam mattress is a truly plush mattress. And believe it or not that’s difficult to find online. So if you like your mattress soft, be sure to check it out.

And if you’re heavier or don’t want to sink into your comfy bed too far, they also have a memory foam mattress that’s a medium feel.

First some quick facts you need to know about the Idle Gel memory foam mattress:

  • Plush mattress that’s Ideal for side sleepers who wake up with shoulder or hip pain.
  • Super long 18 month sleep trial and forever warranty that’s better than any other mattress. Yes, a full year and a half to try it and if you’re not happy in that time, get a full refund.
  • 14 inches thick – most mattresses you buy online are just 10 inches but the price is about the same. You get an additional 4 inches of height!
  • $200 less than queen size from other leading mattress brands
  • Take off 20% and Get 2 FREE Pillows with our link below (queen size and up)

Get 20% Off and 2 FREE Pillows

Are you a side sleeper who is searching for a new mattress? This is the best mattress for side sleepers who love memory foam. Then the firmness is very important – probably the most important factor when looking at mattresses.

That’s because the #1 one reason people return a mattress they buy online is because it’s TOO FIRM.

What Side Sleepers Need Most

When you’re a side sleeper all of your body weight is more concentrated on a few pressure points (your shoulders and hips). So choosing a mattress that has cushioning is especially important for you. Otherwise you can end up with shoulder and hip pain every morning.

In general, unless you’re on the heavier end (or over 230 lbs), you should choose a medium to soft mattress to help prevent that pain. Or just for better sleep. The good news is Idle has a medium option too. We just wouldn’t recommend a firm.

Your weight also matters. Someone who is heavier will sink into a mattress (especially a soft one) more than someone who’s lighter. But the good news is you won’t hit the firmer bottom layers of the mattress because it’s thicker than what we typically see (14 inches on the plush and 12 inches on the medium).

Now let’s look a little deeper and show you the layers of the Idle plush gel memory foam mattress.

Idle Gel Plush Mattress Unboxing

No matter how many unboxings we do, we always find them fun and fascinating. Want to see what the Idle Gel Plush looks like out of the box? Watch our video of the gel plush mattress being unboxed here:

Mattress Cover

Features a quilted surface that has the gel sewn right into it. The cover is pure cotton and yet has a silky feel. So it’s super soft and luxurious. The cover unzips and is washable.

However, I always recommend that you get a mattress protector because it’s not going to be easy to wash this cover and it’s not waterproof. Idle has a 5-sided waterproof mattress protector. It’s made of tencel fabric and covers all 4 sides plus the top of the bed. Most mattress protectors just protect the top layer, not the sides. So the next time you spill a cup of coffee and it goes over the sides of the bed, you won’t have to worry – you’re covered!

A mattress protector is like buying a case to protect your phone. It prolongs the life of your mattress. Once something like liquid or food gets into the foam you’re not getting it out and it’s going to start breaking down the foam and get bacteria inside your bed. So be sure to grab a protector if you don’t already have one.

Idle Sleep Memory Foam Mattress

Goodnight. Sweet Dreams.

Check Prices

Idle Gel Plush Mattress Layers

First Layer

1″ top layer of foam that reacts faster than memory foam to help cushion your pressure points.

Base Layer

3. 3″ of Gel Infused foam that they call Buoyancy Foam. To add extra durability to our mattresses Idle uses a 2.4lb base compared the industry standard of 1.8lb. The gel adds coolness to the bed.

Overall, there was some smell from this mattress but it did lessen quickly. It came out of the box ready to sleep on almost right away (you could sleep on it that same night that you open it). However, the pillows did need some time to fully expand.

2 FREE Pillows with Mattress Purchase

When you order an Idle Plush mattress there are two pillows included in the box. They are totally flat when you open the packaging, but they become plumper with time (you can knead them to make the process faster). The pillow cover comes off and will unzip to show another chamber that holds the shredded memory foam.

You can take out foam and adjust how much fill is inside to get the exact feel you want. No one will tell if you prefer a flat pillow (although side sleepers usually opt for more support).

We got a queen and it comes with 2 FREE pillows.

 

Idle Mattress Cover

Firmness Of The Idle Plush Memory Foam Bed

This luxury memory foam mattress offers a superior 14″ thickness. Not only does this give you a premium feel, but also a more cushioned and soft all foam bed. This mattress will come in right around a 4.5 to 5 on a firmness scale. Giving you a more medium to medium-soft feel. But we think it’s actually softer – more like a 3.5.

Motion Isolation

All foam beds usually have very minimal motion transfer anyway. So if you’re sleeping. The fact that this mattress is also a little softer means you have even less motion transfer. So if you sleep with someone else or even a pet, you won’t feel the mattress move as much when they do.

Edge Support

How supportive are the edges of the mattress? Can you sit on the edge or sleep on the edge and not feel like you’ll roll off? The edge support also affects how easy it is to get in and out of bed. Since this is a softer mattress, it’s going to sink down on the edges. So edge support is ok, but if that’s a concern you have, can look at one of Idle’s hybrid models or their other foam mattress.

Price/Value

The Idle Plush mattress is a great price especially when you consider how thick it is at 14″ – an additional 4 inches than most foam mattresses sold online.

Currently the most popular size, queen, the Idle gel memory foam queen mattress is only $1561 before coupon. It does come with 2 FREE pillows, free shipping and an 18 month trial period. So you have a year and a half to try it out in your home and if you want to return it you can get a full refund. To top it off you also have a lifetime warranty.

Idle Sleep Coupons
You can use our link to save 20% off an Idle mattress and get the 2 pillows.

Idle Sleep Financing
If you want to get your mattress right away but pay for it in low monthly payments, you can take advantage of Idle Sleep financing. It’s easy and fast approval through their finance partner, Affirm. If qualified, you can get 60 days 0% interest and payments can start as low as $7 a month. This is one of the best deals there is and they’ll give you an answer within minutes. Plus, it won’t affect your credit score.

Alright, I hope this helps you get more familiar with the Idle Sleep Gel Memory Foam mattress.

Start my 18 Month Sleep Trial

Idle Sleep Gel Memory Foam Mattress - Best for side sleepers

Best for Side Sleepers – Final Evaluation

The plush Idle Sleep mattress has a lot to love with an 18 month sleep trial and lifetime warranty. This comes with every Idle Sleep mattress. So they really stand behind their product.

And again, if you like what I call marshmallow beds that you just sink into and that are snuggly and comfortable, then you’ll love this mattress. It’s definitely more plush than the other mattresses on the market that are mostly medium.

We don’t usually talk about other mattresses in a mattress review – it’s usually specific to that mattress only. But Idle Sleep doesn’t have just one model – you can choose from their hybrid model if you want a medium or medium firm spring mattress.

Idle’s other gel foam mattress has a medium feel and is 12” thick. Just remember that their mattresses are 14 inches thick EXCEPT this one. Yet it’s still thicker than most.

And last of all they have hybrid models – with foam and springs. The Idle Hybrid mattress is their best seller. But it comes in medium and medium firm or luxury firm. You can get one side of the bed one firmness (medium to firm) and the other side another firmness. Plus they’re flippable so you can get more wear from each side.

So no matter what your preference, Idle pretty much Idle has you covered as the one of the best mattress for side sleepers. The coupon for 20% off is good on any mattress on their website.

CBD Infused Mattresses, Pillows and Products Trending in the Sleep Industry

By | Bedding, Best Sleep | No Comments

2019 seemed like the year that CBD everything hit its highest popularity. Get it – it got high?? However, the joke’s not accurate because CBD oil doesn’t contain psychoactive properties. Rather, it’s a chemical compound in marijuana and it has a long history of being used as medicine. There are no psychoactive compounds in this part of the plant (the part that makes you high is called THC).

The idea is that CBD helps you get better sleep by lessening restlessness, pain, and stress.

At the most recent mattress industry trade show in Vegas there were several new products touting CBD in mattresses and bedding.

Here are Some Examples of CBD Products Related to Mattresses and Sleep

  • Therapedic’s new b-Calm mattress line which has CBD-infused cover and foam.
  • MLILY’s Mprove CBD-Infused Mattress, an organic hybrid mattress with CBD-infused fabric.
  • Malouf’s $200 CBD-oil infused pillow.
  • Joy Organics CBD soft gels with melatonin to help promote better sleep.

QuickZip Sheets Make Washing and Disinfecting Sheets so Much Easier

By | Bedding, Sheets Reviews | No Comments

quickzip sheets

  • Bottom or fitted sheets are the biggest pain to launder because putting them back on is tough.
  • QuickZip has a 2-piece zipper design – you zip the top part of the fitted sheet on and off to make it easy to remove and put back on.
  • Besides sheets they have a zipper system to make duvets easier – duvets are perhaps the most challenging bedding there is to make!
  • Most people don’t wash their sheets often enough. QuickZip makes it easier.

QuickZip Sheets Review

We had a chance to try out QuickZip sheets. What we found is that they’re very durable feeling, thicker cotton. The zipper is well built and unzipping the top sheet is very easy to do. The biggest pain of washing and changing the sheets is definitely putting back on the fitted sheet.

It’s much easier to not have to remove and put it on. Instead, you leave it on and just change out the top. The sides and elastic part stays on the bed. That makes it more likely you’ll change your sheets more often because you it’s so much faster. You can still wash the sides but most people don’t need to wash them as often.

This is especially handy if you have guests or another reason (like someone is sick) that you need to wash the bottom sheets more often. Taking off sheets isn’t the hard part. Where you really save time and your back is putting them back on. You no longer need to lift up the mattress and fight with getting it back on.

As for the top sheet, it’s simply there to match the bottom. There’s nothing different about them.

One improvement is we wish that they had a version that zips your top and bottom sheet together so that they didn’t shift or fall off. This would help end the war with sheets if you sleep with someone who steals them. If we could try another product from QuickZip it would be the duvet – one of the most difficult bedding there is to put on the bed! And the ties sometimes break or don’t stay tied tight enough. Their system looks a lot more durable.

QuickZip Shees Material, Colors and Sizes

Choose from the more silky sateen or the cotton percale sheets. We have the cotton percale (requested and sent to us by the company) and they’re a little thicker and feel so well made.

Sateen Sheet Set

  • Luxurious 400 thread-count sateen 100% cotton that is soft and smooth- not slippery:) – with a subtle sheen.  OEKO-TEX Certified.
  • Made in Israel
  • Comes in 5 colors including pinstripe, navy, white, slate gray, sand or navy. You can mix and match the colors (so a pinstripe side and a navy top, for example). 
  • Sizes include: twin, twin xl, twin xl dorm, full, full deep, queen, king, cal king, split king, RV queen (short queen)

Percale

  • Comes in white, lavender or navy.
  • Sizes include: twin, twin xl, full, full deep, queen, king
  • Crisp, cool and light percale weave with a matte finish. 100% cotton, 200 thread count.
  • Made in Israel
We recommend the premium which comes with the base and 2 sheets if you don’t sleep with a top sheet. Otherwise we recommend the euro set (if you have a duvet). You can order sheets, pillowcases and duvets separately or together.

How Often Should you Wash your Sheets?

There’s no definitive rule on how often to wash your sheets. However, think about this. You probably wear clothes once and wash them. It seems logical to wash the sheets at least every week. Exactly how often depends on your situation. However, unofficial studies have show that college students NEVER wash their sheets. So they may go 4 years or so (unless a parent steps in). And if you eat in bed, drink in bed or otherwise utilize your bed to its full capacity, you need to wash your sheets more often.

Those who have skin issues or night sweats may have to change sheets every night. When someone in your family is sick or has the flu it’s important to wash and disinfect the sheets after they are well. Be sure to wash separately from other laundry.

Fitted Sheets can be a Nightmare to Change

Here’s a fun, lighthearted look at how standard fitted sheets can make your life miserable…

The Problem with Washing your Sheets

The issue with washing your sheets isn’t pulling off all the bedding. That part isn’t difficult to do. It’s making the bed again afterwards. And possibly the worst part is getting all the corners on the bed when it comes to the fitted sheet. If you don’t secure them you have a problem with them popping off and your sheets will get all bunched up. Sometimes you’re in a tight room and it’s difficult to get around on all sides of the bed.

QuickZip is a great concept because the fitted part of the sheets stay on the bed (you can wash them less frequently). The middle part zips off and on so that you don’t need to fuss with the corners. Plus, if you get their starter pack it has 2 fitted sheets so that you can remove one sheet and put the next one on. So you don’t have to wait to remake the bed or sleep without sheets in case they’re not dry in time.

 

Ideal for Daybeds

If you have a daybed with a high back and sides you know how difficult it is to change the fitted sheets on this bed. QuickZip makes changing the bottom sheet surface so much easier.  You don’t feel or see the heavy-duty plastic zipper since it’s covered by a flap of cotton. They have a neat and tidy look. They also make changing the sheets on bunk beds much easier.

Box Spring & Mattress for Very Low Bed

By | Bedding, Platform beds | No Comments

Are you looking for a box spring and mattress that is lower to the ground? Today’s beds are made so they don’t require a box spring (they’re difficult to ship if made of metal springs). Really, you just need a flat surface to set your mattress on.

Mattresses and box springs can add a lot of height to a bed. But what if you want a shorter bed? We have options for you!

Some mattress brands sell foundations and frames with their bed in a box options that you may look at but we recommend  Wayfair. Why? They just have so much more selection. Plus you’ve got to love FREE Shipping on thousands of items at Wayfair. In addition, Wayfair makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Sort by height, type of material, size, price and ratings so you don’t waste your time searching for the perfect fit. If you want to buy now and pay later, Wayfair has financing options too.

Low profile mattresses – under 6 inches deep.

Low profile box springs – typically 2-5 inches off the ground and have metal springs inside.

Low profile foundations – these are box spring replacements that you place your mattress on and they’re firmer than box springs. Some foundations can be folded.

Low profile platform beds – a simple bed frame that doesn’t require box springs – they often have slats and may include a  headboard and/or footboard.

Why Buy Low Profile Box Spring and Mattress?

A low profile box spring (or low profile foundation) reduces the height of your box spring (or foundation) and mattress. Standard box springs are 9 inches high. Then add a bed frame that can add another 7 inches. Mattresses themselves can be 15 inches deep or more. That totals over 30 inches off the ground – 2.5 feet.

Additionally, you can choose to skip the box springs altogether and just get a foundation. Then just put your thin box mattress on the foundation, no box springs required.

5 reasons you might choose a lower profile bed:

  1. Difficulty getting out of bed (like you’re disabled, shorter or a child). A thin box spring can make your bed lower and easier to get into.
  2. Bunk beds need enough room between your bed and the ceiling so you don’t hit your head!
  3. You’re a minimalist. A lower profile mattress and foundation that are close to the ground can give a simple, uncluttered aesthetic to a bedroom that’s clean and modern. In Japan, the futon is an example of a low profile bed that lies flat and doesn’t clutter the room.
  4. You move a lot or don’t have a lot of space. Lower profile beds may not be as heavy and some can even fold so you can store them when you don’t need them (like for a guest room).
  5. Budget is a concern. A lower profile box springs or foundation costs less.

Coop’s New Flip Mattress Topper Is Firm on One Side Soft on the Other

By | Bedding, Mattress Topper Reviews | No Comments

Coop Home Goods, the online company known for helping you find the perfect pillow for you, recently introduced a new 4″ thick reversible Mattress Topper. Called the Flip because you can switch between two support levels: firm or soft.

This is the first mattress topper they’ve added to their collection of sleep related products.

Most people buy a mattress topper to solve a specific sleep problem, because it’s easier and less costly than buying a new mattress. It also helps you extend the life of your mattress.

One of the biggest complaints or top reason a mattress gets returned or people don’t like their mattress, is because of the feel. In most cases, the complaint is that the mattress is  either too soft or too firm. The Flip is perfect if you have this problem. Or, if you have a guest room (or Airbnb) you can change the feel to fit different preferences.

What we love most about Coop is how they make quality products and stand behind them (even bedding) with a generous sleep trial and warranty. It’s a brand you can trust.
