There has been quite a lot of talk about sleep on Mummy Matters recently, lack of sleep, getting sleep and products to help with sleep and that has mainly been centred around the children (which has the knock-on effect to me of course!).
I may have mentioned once or twice that I am being sponsored by BSensible to attend this year’s Cybermummy in less than 2 weeks’ time. Well my fab sponsors have now increased their product range to include Duvet Covers and sent me a couple to ensure that I get all the beauty sleep I possibly can so that I look in tip-top condition when I represent them at the ‘must-attend’ event in the Mummy Bloggers calendar.
As with their already successful cot sheets, bed sheets and pillow cases, the duvet covers are soft, waterproof, breathable and 100% hygienic. They keep your duvet fresh and clean with the new hypoallergenic and anti-dust mite protection. They come in a selection of sizes from single to king-size and the Tencel layer prevents moisture from reaching the duvet avoiding stains from spills and perspiration.
Ours is crisp white and looks lovely on, so fresh and clean. What really sells it to my Hubby is that it helps to control humidity and body temperature, he’s a bit of a hot one (lucky me!) and so would love to sleep with the windows wide open in the middle of winter but I’m cold-blooded so I like them closed and the heating on full! What I really like is that it has a zip along the lower edge – why don’t more duvet covers have these? Its so much easier when changing the bed and looks so much neater.
Personally, the only downside to the duvet cover is that you can’t iron it because of the waterproof barrier but I like a well ironed duvet cover. For many people I think this would be a huge positive! However, what I will be doing with my duvet cover and pillowcases from now on is packing them in my suitcase to use on holiday bedding, that way I can be sure that we aren’t breathing in all the horrible nasty bugs from the previous occupants – oh yes I will sleep well on my holidays! I’ve just got to book one now!!!
