Here's another reason to opt for 100% organic cotton sheets for your bed: They can help you stay healthier during cold and flu season. When someone is sick, it's important to regularly wash the bedding they are sleeping on, since the sheets can harbor illness-causing germs. All-cotton sheets are the only kind that can withstand being washed in hot water with special disinfecting detergents. Synthetic blends can shrink and wear out quickly, and should be avoided.
