How to Get Soft Sheets

Oils, scented candles, red lights, I’ve tried it all. Because when it comes to performing at work, for me, sleep directly effects my output. But while these things can definitely calm me down after a busy day, I recently discovered a cheap hack on Well + Good that has helped me further in my pursuit of a zen bedroom. The best bit is that it only sets me back $3—but you probably already have them in your pantry.

What I found is that after you toss your sheets into the washing machine, by adding 1 cup of bicarbonate soda  ($1.60) and 1/2 a cup of vinegar ($1.20) to your cycle your bedding will come out feeling lusciously soft. Promise. The only downside is finding the strength to get out of bed in the morning. While you're here, shop some of our favourite bedding below.
