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.

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.
The same goes for crib sheets. You’re more likely to have more frequent changes because babies and diapers…and it usually involves removing the whole mattress. But again, with QuickZip you can simply unzip the top (babies don’t use top sheets). This makes it so much quicker and easier to change soiled sheets, especially in the middle of the night by otherwise worn out parents.
Crib sheets come in 15 designs which you can mix or match (and are so cute). Designed to fit all standard crib mattresses (52” x 27” wide, 5” to 7” thick); Compatible with all crib flat mattress pads; 100% Cotton.For kids who are potty training, special needs or otherwise need a faster way to change the sheets, get the QuickZip Fitted Sheet Set. It has a wraparound base & 1 zip-on sheet.
