The Bed Sheets or No Sheets Debate Burns On as Winter Approaches
My whole life, I've never been a fan of the top bed sheet. Even if I went to sleep with it, I always woke up with the sheets tangled up or on the floor. I'm not referring to the fitted sheet that goes over the mattress, but rather the sheet that is sandwiched between the fitted and the comforter.
If you ask me, it's more of a hassle than anything. I've heard a rumor that it's designed to collect your sweat to preserve your comforter longer before having to wash it, but that's just baloney. The comforter has to be washed regardless and if you've seen how big of a guy I am in person, you'll realize that a dainty thin sheet isn't going to protect anything from the way I sweat at night.
Before I continue, it's imperative to let you know that I'm somewhat of a clean freak. The comforter gets washed once a month and the sheets – regardless if I use the top one or not – get changed out bi-weekly if not weekly depending on the season.
If I get cold, I have other blankets to toss on top, but I absolutely can't stand to be restricted in any way, form, or fashion. That goes for my night attire, too, but I'll save you the horrific imagery.
There are two types of people in this world: those who choose to sleep with the top sheet and those who choose to sleep without. I asked nearly 100 of my friends on Facebook and here are the final results of a somewhat aggressive topic that some took a little too much to heart:
Team No Sheet: 44
Team Top Sheet: 35
Call me strange, but my preferred sleeping arrangements also involve an AC all year or at least a fan to shave some money off the electric bill. When you got a lot of body such as myself, it doesn't take much to keep warm at night. I'm glad we could settle this hard-hitting question that's been on my mind for some time now.
