With all the bedding terms and jargon, it might be difficult to figure out how to choose the right bedding for your home. We speak with Clara Teo, the co-founder of Sunday Bedding, on the four things to pay attention to when buying your bedding. Plus, she shares her best tips on storing bedding properly and putting sheets efficiently.
What is the best way to store bedding in Singapore’s humidity?
Singapore’s humidity and high moisture levels can encourage the growth of mold and mildew, and musty smells if we don’t store our bedding properly. Before we put any of our duvet inserts, quilts or sheets away, they should be clean and completely dry, and rid of any leftover moisture. The ideal place to store any bedding is to fold them on a shelf in a closet, where there’s airflow. Fold and stack your sheets as neatly as possible, to prevent your sheets from becoming overly wrinkled. Cloth bags are the best choice because they protect bedding from dust and bugs, but allow moisture to escape.
Can you share some tips for putting bed sheets on beds more efficiently?
Make sure you buy the right sized sheets for your bed – check the dimensions to be sure! Our sheets are aligned to Australian sizes so they’re slightly bigger than standard Singapore sizes, and can accommodate larger beds. All our sheets are fitted for easy fitting, but if you use flat sheets, try learning how to create hospital corners. The method is used in hotels too to create a crisp, tight look.
