No sheeting should be damaged by accidental tearing. Particularly long cotton fibres, as in the case of mako-satin stretch sheets, impress with their enormous tear resistance. Polyester doesn't fray too quickly either.
The fabrics of the clamping bed sheets in the test were of different thicknesses, but they all withstood strong tearing.
If the round rubber around the fabric is torn or brittle, you can continue to use the sheet, but you have to live with reduced tension. Extend the durability of the rubber by washing and drying the sheet as cold as possible and cleaning it at 60 °C only in exceptional cases (after diseases such as flu).
Processing: Fabric quality more important than clean seams
Unclean seams and loose threads can be found even in products of well-known brand manufacturers.
Clamping bed sheets with thick fabric can still show defects in the hem. However, a stretcher cloth does not become unusable if threads loosen at the hem.
Since the hem that surrounds the stretching rubber of the sheet but is provided with a variety of seams, even with a thread that stands a little, an eye can be closed if it does not accumulate further after a few washes.
The processing of the clamping material is decisive. In comparison to the clamping bed sheets made of conventional cotton, the grammage can provide information about the longevity of the sheets.
Small holes can also be patched by hand.
A clamping bed sheet should have a minimum grammage of 120 g/m2, so as not to become holey after just a few washes. Thick stretch bed sheets = quality.
Care: Clamping bed sheets all hot washable
Clamping sheets in 180 x 200 cm or 200 x 200 cm take up a lot of space in the washing machine. If the model in your household is not large enough, we recommend a visit to the laundromat.
Washing temperature: 60 °C for hygiene
Change bed linen twice a month
According to an OECD survey, Germans sleep 492 minutes a day. This equates to just over 8 hours spent on the mattress and in the bed linen.
For the week, the level of pollution is comparable to having a sweater on almost 2.5 days continuously.
Nothing to rest in.
Change and wash your bed linen and sheets blogs about at least every two weeks so that you rinse sweat, mites and skin flakes out of the bedding.
As a rule, the clamping bed sheets can be washed up to 60 °C. This temperature guarantees that dust mites will actually be killed.
However, if your washing machine is an older device, you may prefer to avoid the energy-saving mode, as not all washing machines with eco function really heat up to 60 °C.
Only silk or satin sheets should be washed slightly cooler at 40 °C so that the fabric structure is not damaged.
Linen cloth for box spring bed
Only a few clamping bed sheets can withstand a cooking wash.
By the way, even after viral diseases, there is no indication of cooking bed sheets. Here, too, 60 °C is sufficient.
