Nothing says comfort like flannel sheets (except maybe flannel pajamas). Now is the time to get your bed cozy and soft for the winter nights. There are lots of grades of cotton flannel – pick a brand you trust. Flannels can bleed so select light-colored patterns or solids like white and cream. Wash before using and then before you tumble dry – spritz the sheets with orange or lavender essential oil. Fred Meyer has good deals right now on their flannel sheet sets. Skip the cheaper Everyday Living brand and get the HD Design – softer fabric, longer lasting and available in a variety of colors and patterns. Here’s to a season of sweet dreams!
