Care of Cotton Sheets

The best temperature for washing cotton sheets is 40°, but a 60° wash will be fine, and better at killing any germs. Everyone knows cotton sheets are prone to wrinkling (if this is a problem, perhaps consider our polycotton range) but to best avoid wrinkles, remove the sheets from the washing machine as soon as the cycle is finished and air-dry, best on a line outside.  Tumble drying isn’t recommended, but a low temperature tumble for a short time will not do any harm.  Air drying cotton sheets is the best option, if possible.  Be sure to change your sheets once a week to keep things fresh.

Why is it Called ‘Housewife’?

‘Housewife’ describes what we might call a ‘normal’ pillowcase.  These pillowcases do not have the 5cm ‘frill’ present on ‘Oxford’ pillowcases.  These tend to be the most popular pillowcases and have an unmistakable ‘classic’ style, being simple and elegant.  Our housewife pillowcases are the standard Ireland/UK size, 50cm by 75cm and fit all our pillows.

The term ‘housewife’ – used by many, if not all, linen retailers – originated in the 1800s when The Housewives Co-operative in Bolton in Lancashire, designed the style with a flap at one end to easily open and close the case.  This simple design feature arose because previous pillowcases had a plain, open end, from which the pillows often fell out.

To pay tribute to the diligent work and design inspiration of the ladies of the The Housewives Co-operative, they became universally known as ‘Housewife’.

We know there has been some backlash to the use of this term recently, calling it rather dated, even sexist.  We’re aware of that, but use the term as it is a commonly accepted description.  If you feel we’ve made a mistake there, please let us know.

Which is Better, Cotton or Polycotton?

Cotton feels better than polycotton.  The natural fibres of cotton feel soft and natural.  Polycotton bed sheets, however, will keep you much warmer than cotton, but polycotton lacks the ‘breathability’ of cotton, as it offers less circulation o fair.  If the weather where you are is warmer, you might want to consider cooler, cotton, Egyptian or Pima cotton fabrics for your bed.  Cotton is much more absorbent that Polycotton, meaning that any sweat you produce at night is likely to be kept underneath the covers as you sleep.  Cotton, however, will absorb sweat.  We’re not sure which is better, to be honest.  If a person sweats much at night, the sheets will need washing either way.

Polycotton is More Affordable

Generally speaking, 100% cotton bedding is to be more expensive than Polycotton.  However, polycotton sheets and pillowcases cost significantly less and, if cared for properly, are far more durable, less likely to wear and tear.  Polycotton bedding might be more appropriate for beds with a high turn-over of guests, and clean or new bed linen.  Read more about Polycotton vs Cotton in the Bedding Blog.
