5 bedding hacks you need to know! The Fine Cotton Bedding review.

the fine cotton bedding review
You now probably know that I love bedding! Who doesn’t? I remember being this girl who wanted always be out and about. Once you hit 30, something is changing and I longer want to be that girl who holds glass of wine every other night, now i rather hold nice book, keyboard or tv remote! It’s scary! 
The one thing I love best in spending the nights in is the cosy and crisps sheets!not just while I am ready to bed. I like to drag my duvet to living room, wrap myself up and watch TV or blog! This is something that I dream of everyday, just to relax and keep warm. Especially now, where I got new duvet from IKEA, all I needed now is new duvet cover and new cushion!

I remember my grandma cosy and crisps sheets. Every holiday I was staying at hers in small village. I remember that it drove me nuts, as my grandma’s duvet where made out of duck feathers and when I covered myself one parts, was running toward end. It’s so weird how it all changed now and how much I want that bedding back! Especially that these days, these duvets are made in quilt like patches so nothing ‘’runs’’ away.

Here I have prepared for you 5 bedding hacks you all need to know!
  1. Storing your bedding! I was always struggling with strong my bedding. I have so many sets it’s unreal! Despite giving away few for charity I still have few! One of best hack to store I learned is to store your bedding in pillowcase! After wash and dry simply fold it and place inside pillowcase. One on another. Easy to find as well and you won’t misplace the parts ( one of the biggest struggle in my apartment apart from losing socks!)
  2. Count the threads! I never understood what on heck was with the thread count. I didn't realised it would be such a simple thing like number of threads going horizontally and vertically within a 1 square inch. So, apparently the higher the number of threads the softer fabric will be but there are some other ways where brands are cheating a little, they increase the thread count but the quality of the fabric won’t change and won’t be any softer. just bear that in mind. It will be determined also by the type of fabric and thickens of the fibres. The perfect bedding will be between 200 to 280 of pure organic cotton, this will give you the grandma’s style crisp and soft sheets! 
  3. Washing your bedding. Ideally you wash your sheets every week, the longest you should leave is 2 weeks top, otherwise the amount of sweat, body oils and bacteria build up on your sheets and it;s not just gross but also if you had a bit of cold a week before it may be the reason why it didn’t go away yet! Many people follow the safety labels where its says 30 or 40 degrees. If you have synthetic sheets then yes, maybe..with cotton you can safely go 60degrees. Human grease (blurgh) will dissolve in temperature 60C or above and bacteria can be killed in 100C only! I wash all my cotton and linens, towels etc in 95C but I do that on my own responsibility. 
  4. Drying. There a few mistakes I learned when I dried my sheets. I have new bedding every Saturday and of course I want to be always prepared with fresh ones, but sometimes I just don’t have time and wash all in one day. If you wash your sheets in hot water like me make sure you use the cool air (use the synthetic option) to dry them. The caller the temperature, the less wrinkles you get. Don’t mix towels & sheets when drying. Towels absorb more water and will take longer than your bedding and you won’t get the right result. Also, remember to dry one set a time. It will give you more ‘’air’’ in the dryer and you will have less wrinkles and with good dryer you won’t even need to iron it! 
  5. Style your bedding. Don’t just leave your bed with bedding on, it honestly takes 2 minutes to ‘’style’’ bed after wake up. Buy some stylish throw, get the cushions out. creating a nice ambience for your bedroom will honestly make the whole room look differently. Bed takes most of the space and it is the heart of each bedroom of course. Make it look good. You can check my post about bedroom makeover on budget or check these bedroom ideas from Homify.

I have posted last week few images of my new bedding to Instagram and everyone was asking ‘’where it is from’’. I was so pleased to hear that you loved my new dotsy duvet cover, so I am glad I can finally share it with you!

My lovely duvet cover and cushions was send to me by The Fine Cotton Company. When I was browsing through their website to find the one I wanted I was like a child in Disney store! They have so amazing products it’s unreal! The decision was so hard but finally I have chosen the Natural Spots Organic Cotton set and Goose Feather and Down 2 x Pillows. 

I’ll start with the duvet cover. When I opened the package and touch the fabric I instantly knew this was what I was looking for for many years, crisp and soft at same time! After trying so many for past years, I couldn’t find ‘’the one’’! I spend loads of money trying to find the perfect covers and I was always disappointed with the result. This luxury organic cover has really stylish spots embroidery, you can chose from blue, pink or natural like mine. The design is stunning and so eye-caching. I love these very delicate yet very distinctive dots! I was torn between the pink and natural colours but chosen the natural as I already have so many pink duvet covers (I believe you can guess haha)

The design is simple but it will complement many interior styles! Dots will go with literally everything! Industrial, French, Skandi, Contemporary. you name it! 
What is really amazing in this sheets, that these are made from 100% organic pure cotton. You can’t even describe the experience in words. I got back in time, I was again, that little girl in my grandma’s bedding, after cartoons and bath- ready to sleep. I was waiting for the moment to find the perfect sheets for long time, and finally I did! The covers are also made with 200 thread count cotton. Just perfect!

What made the experience even more amazing, was the goose feather pillows! I was heaving foam pillows flat as pancakes for past few years and these are just hell of new experience! What I love in these goose feather pillows is that it moulds into the shape of my head, so I can sleep very comfortably and wake up fresh without neck pain! The fabric cover is also made with 200 threads count cotton. You probably read my review of Eve Mattress now, so you now I have best mattress ever, now combining all 3 is just sleep heaven!

  1. That bedding is gorgeous. I love getting into crispy clean sheets, there's no better feeling, with the sheets tucked in really tight so you feel so snug and warm, it's blissful. I'm a huge fan of bright and white bedding too, and making the room feel very hotel-esq. I don't have any TV's or anything in my room, no distractions, so it really is the perfect place to unwind and relax after a long day.

    That bedding just looks divine, top quality and very very pretty, sometimes the simplest of designs makes the biggest impact. I'm forever dressing up my bed - the Mr doesn't understand why but it's all part of the ritual to me!

  2. Great tips! I'm all for a high thread count- I persuaded my partner to invest in some quality sheets when we moved in together and he never looked back, no more cheap sheets!

  3. I know what you mean about the stuffing clumping in certain areas of the quilt - it's maddening! I'd never heard of thread counting! Great tip! Tx
