Do You Really Need To Sleep With A Top Sheet? The Answer, Once And For All.

Before writing this, I had no idea just how divisive the top sheet vs no top sheet debate was – you either fall into one camp or the other, and chances are, you’ll vehemently defend your use of a top sheet (or lack thereof).

Top sheet devotees say it keeps the comforter or quilt clean, while those of us who refuse to use one find it to be nothing more than a useless addition that provides no extra warmth and makes it take longer to make the bed. So once and for all, which is better? And should you sleep under a quilt or a duvet?

It turns out that top sheet or no topsheet, it all comes down to what you sleep with on top. If you typically use a thinner quilt with no removable cover that can be washed separately, you’re definitely going to want to use a top sheet. Since a quilt can’t be washed frequently, a top sheet will keep it clean and stop it from directly touching your body while you sleep. On the other hand, if you use a duvet insert with a removable cover, feel free to ditch the top sheet – simply wash your duvet cover as often as you wash your bed’s fitted sheet.

The bottom line: there’s no real winner in the great top sheet debate – it’s actually what’s on top that counts!
