While there are many different people who enjoy doing many different things that are to include some really depraved activities, this must mean that somebody out there probably really enjoys cleaning dirty bed linens and towels. If this is not what you enjoy doing, you have more than likely scoured through your local grocery stores shelves looking for a product that promises to make doing all of the dirty laundry that seems to always need to be cleaned, a much less time consuming and more effective chore. In fact, a study done reveals that people will go out and buy a brand new front loading washing machine for the sole purpose of allowing them just a little more space to try and squeeze in a few extra items into just one load so that they are able to get it done and over with.
When it comes to cleaning in general, there are not many people who like to volunteer because it just so happens to be their absolute favorite activity. Even if you try to divide cleaning the laundry, if this is done sloppily, it can do great harm to a friendship, relationship, and even a marriage. There are actually many people out there who have expressed that they feel like they are suffocating under the need to try and balance their family, their job, and all of the other personal and daily household maintenance that must get done. If you are lucky enough though, there is a way that you can opt out of this continuous burden, that being to simply pay somebody else to do all of these chores for you. But even when you do this, the chores themselves are not really going away.
When you say it out loud, there should be a way for technology to help alleviate this burden of needing to get household chores done much more efficiently, as well as increase the productivity. At least that is what some of the bigger companies have continuously promised. However, people (and mainly women) have still been left with tons of work that they need to get done around the house, one of the most dreaded being doing the laundry.
With that being said, it does not mean that there are no companies out there trying to find some type of marketable solution to your cleaning and laundry problems. In fact, there have actually been several new start-ups who are promising to help make laundry just that much less burdensome by introducing textiles that are able to resist becoming dirty. These products however, are still going to have their limitations when it comes to the fact that living a life as a human is typically kind of gross, meaning that the amount of work that it will take to help keep the filth away is something that can probably never be eliminated completely.
How Dirty is Your Bed?
When it comes to keeping things clean, beds are simply going to be a nightmare. If you are getting the required amount of sleep every night, this means that you are going to be spending about an entire third of your life being wrapped up in your sheets and other bedding. While it may be a great feeling that helps you stay comfortable, it also means that there is going to be a lot of dirt, dead skin, oil, sweat, hair products, and even drool that will end up in and one your bedding and mattress while you are sleeping. This is the exact reason why it feels so good when you put on some fresh sheets, and why the old sheets are going to feel and even smell so gross. Your sheets are going to accumulate a whole bunch of different types of gunk, and they are going to do it very quickly.
While experts recommend that you change your bedding a minimum of one time per week, for a family of four, that means that you are going to need to strip all of the bedding, launder all of the bedding, and then remake all of the beds at least one time per week. While this may not sound like a lot of work, that is because there is a good chance that you are not actually the person doing it all. Just believe that it all adds up.
The Ultimate Solution to Clean Sheets?
When the company Silvon was originally launched back in 2014 under their name Sleep Clean, they made a promise that they would be able to bring one of the best pleasures of all luxury hotels into your everyday life, that promise being to bring perennially fresh bed sheets into your home without requiring any type of personal effort on your end. They now make both towels and bedding that uses one of the oldest and most reliable antimicrobial properties that has ever been discovered by man. This being to infuse their fabric threads with that of pure silver. This silver is woven into the company’s threads to a tune of about 7 percent, making it ready to start killing and all bacteria that just may scurry off of you while you are getting your beauty sleep, as well as drying off.
Silvon is just one of the many businesses that have popped up and incorporated very similar technologies into their everyday products over the past five years. Another company, Miracle, is also making their own silver-infused towels and bedding, with the promise that when you use their bedding and towels, you will be able to do roughly two-thirds less laundry than you are right now. Skin Laundry, which make several products to help take care of your skin, has recently developed a silver-washed pillowcase to their lineup, claiming that when you sleep on this silver-infused pillowcase, it will help you to clear up any acne that you may be dealing with. Lululemon, which you have probably already heard of, has recently launched its Silverescent line of workout gear, which harnesses silver’s antimicrobial properties, to help keep and maintain your ‘freshness’. The Mack Weldon brand of underwear is actually designed with a silver-infused fabric. No matter what the actual products are that have been infused with silver thread, they all claim the exact same thing. That being that their products are going to help eliminate any odor and acne causing bacteria, meaning that your stuff will be able to stay cleaner, for longer.
While it is not necessarily very clear what is actually meant when the word ‘clean’ is used by any of the above-mentioned companies, for the moment, it seems that the word may be more of a marketing term to help describe a potential end result. If you think about it, when a company uses the term clean, it can literally be used about anything. This can include food to the ingredients in your skincare products. Typically, it is pretty much referring to some sort of arbitrary, implied sense of naturalness that isn’t really telling you much of anything about anything when it comes to the actual product. With that being said, you must remember that clean is actually in the eye of the beholder. When it comes to silver-infused threads and fabrics, the word ‘clean’ is meant to imply bacteria free. It’s almost as though this is the Purell of fabrics.
Does This Mean That the Sheets Get Dirty?
When it comes to silver infused sheets, think of it like hand sanitizer. Yes, everyone who’s ever used it knows it works great, but you are still going to want to wash your hands the old-fashioned way as well. With that being said, that means that there are actually going to be limitations that will extend past the abilities of the so-called ‘self-cleaning’ sheets.
For example, what if you accidently spill some wine or pizza onto the sheets. There is more than likely going to be a very obvious stain. However, when it comes to the area of skin care, if you are spending lots of money on facial products to help prevent acne from occurring, you are probably going to want to make sure that you are using a pillowcase that is constantly clean every single night.
With all that, even if you are using silver-infused sheets, you are going to want to wash them the good old fashion way at least once every 10 days or so. While this is not going to eliminate your need to wash your sheets on occasion, it will help to cut back on how often that they will need to be washed. In today’s modern society where everything is always go, go, go, and nobody has enough hours in the day, getting a few extra days out of doing your bedding laundry can potentially be a huge burden taken away from your list of household chores that needs to get done. Either way, before you decide to try silver-infused sheets for yourself, make sure that you do some research of your own to make sure that they are something that you would like to actually try.
