On certain nights, the weather can be ridiculously warm in Singapore that sleeping in an air-conditioned bedroom sounds like a great idea. But how many of you still experience feeling very warm in bed even though you’re sleeping in an air-con room?
We MIGHT have an answer to that problem. But first, you will want to learn more about the fabric you are sleeping on every night.
Here’s a short introduction about Microfiber and Cotton bedsheet.
Microfiber bedsheets are an affordable option in the market as they are man-made and they composed of extremely fine fibers of polyester. Whereas Cotton bedsheets are more expensive as they are made from natural materials.
Microfiber bedsheets are exceptionally comfortable and smooth to touch. Cotton bedsheets have the crisp look and feels rough in the beginning. They will only get softer with every wash. Therefore, if you were to compare both of them just by feeling it out on the spot in a departmental store, a Cotton bedsheet may be on the losing end because Cotton bedsheets only gets softer and more comfortable with time.
But hey, do you know that Cotton bedsheets are more breathable than Microfiber bedsheets?
Microfiber bedsheets tend to trap body heat, which keeps you warmer at night. This is probably the reason why some Singaporeans feel hot and stuffy which can wake them up in the middle of the night. It could affect your ability to get a good night’s sleep. Cotton bedsheets, on the other hand, are ideal for having a cooling and more comfortable night’s sleep, especially in a humid country like Singapore.
At the end of the day, it still boils down to a matter of personal preference. If feeling hot and stuffy is an issue every night, you might want to invest in sheets that keeps you cooler in warm weather.
