Clean Bedding Properly Without Causing Damage

Cleaning your Slumber Cloud bedding regularly is essential for both health and happiness. Failing to regularly clean bedding can damage the fibers in the material and cause bacteria to accumulate. But how do you wash all the component parts of your bed without causing damage? Read on to find out about the best way to clean bedding. Clean bedding: How to Keep Your Sheets Fresh How often you need to wash your sheets depends on your sleeping habits. You will want to wash your Slumber Cloud sheets more often if you perspire in your sleep, if you sleep naked, if you share a bed with a partner, or if it’s the summertime and you don’t have air conditioning. Once a week is ideal, but every two weeks works too. Sheets absorb sweat and the skin cells you shed in your sleep, so having clean bedding is essential for your hygiene. On a mental and spiritual level, having clean sheets makes your bed a more inviting space, which can help turn your bed into the sanctuary you need it to be for a good night’s rest. Wash sheets in warm water and add a dash of baking soda to deal with any stains or discoloration. Another way to extend the life of your bedding is to have two or three sets of sheets that you rotate weekly. Finally, dry your...

Outlast Technology: How Thermocules In Our Bedding Help Regulate Body Temperature

Do you have trouble sleeping because you find that your body’s temperature fluctuates from hot to cold during the night? Regulating your body temperature during sleep is an important part of gaining restful sleep, which is why Slumber Cloud employs a patented technology that uses comfortable bedding materials that can also stabilize your body temperature through the night. Here is a brief history of the Outlast® Thermocule™ and how this bedding technology helps manage your thermal regulation. Outlast Technology At Slumber Cloud we use Outlast® technology in our products so that you fall asleep faster, and stay asleep, because of the increased level of comfort our bedding provides during the night. Outlast® technology allows the material to absorb the heat your body gives off during sleep, store it, and then release that heat back to the body if you get cold during the night. How Does Outlast® Technology Work Exactly? The technology in our bedding begins to work when the body’s microclimate begins to change, or in other words, when the space between your body and your bedding creates either a colder or warmer environment. For instance, when you become overheated in bed, your body will get rid of your excess body heat by sweating, in order to naturally cool you down. Outlast® technology can absorb the excess heat your body is creating and store it in patented microcapsules...
