Fresh and clean bedding linen

Who doesn’t love climbing into a freshly made bed at the end of a day? Kids, that’s who – so make bed time that little bit more healthy and comfortable. Therefore to take care of it, there are two seemingly prosaic tasks – washing and ironing.

100% sateen cotton×135 Oeko-Tex 100 certified.

Indeed children’s bedding is used quite often and attracts certain allergens like dust mites, dander, mold, and dust. That causes the need for frequent washing and changing to fresh and clean. Therefore, children’s bedding should be made of the highest quality fabrics. Choosing these certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is also a guarantee of the absence of harmful and nasty substances. After washing, the bedding linen need to be ironed with a hot iron – above all washed below sixty degrees – to get rid of bacteria and mites.

Duvets and pillows for children

When it comes to duvets and pillows, it is worth choosing hypoallergenic ones – both for allergy sufferers and for children who are not. Those kind of duvets and pillows are completely safe – they do not cause skin irritation, allergies. An additional advantage is that the baby’s skin breathes freely and does not sweat excessively.

Moreover, our duvets and pillows are suitable for washing at forty degrees. It is also worth ventilating them regularly to maintain the sleeping comfort of the child. Thanks to such a simple procedure, we limit the activity of mites, bacteria and viruses. If you ventilate in the cold, you can completely get rid of these microscopic size of arachnids. In turn, the lack of fresh air means that bacteria multiply quickly, causing allergies and diseases.

In conclusion when it comes to finding the best kids bedding for your little ones, comfort and color are key. However we also must remember to regularly wash and iron bedding. Only thanks to these treatments we get rid of bacteria and mites ensuring healthy, hygienic and comfortable sleep. By neglecting these important activities, we can lead to unwanted allergies and skin irritations that will cause discomfort to our children.
