5 Myths About Buying Sheets

News | May 07, 2018

So it’s time to get a new set of sheets. Good for you! Some things in life are optional, but great sleep isn’t—and it all begins with what you sleep on. Here are five myths you should avoid, to make sure that your new sheets are worth every penny.


Myth #1: Cheap is fine

False! The lower the price, the more likely it is that you will run into problems. Fraying, wrinkles, bunching, and a hot, itchy night’s sleep are just a discount price tag away for the inexperienced shopper. Trust us: we’ve made this mistake in college, and more than one of us has spent years rolling over in the middle of the night, trying to get comfortable between a set of sheets that felt like sandpaper. They were cheap and cheaply made.

That doesn’t mean you need to spend an arm and leg for comfort, though! Molecule’s adapted sheet design combines high-performing comfort with competitive pricing. Luxury is just one good decision away.


Myth #2: Material doesn’t matter

Low thread count and the wrong type of material can make sheets harder to the touch and more likely to pill and wrinkle in the wash. And as we already know: with rough sheets, you can forget about that perfect night’s sleep. Molecule provides the perfect balance of soft cotton and silky Tencel threads to create a sheet that’s ideal for the bedroom. Our blended material is extremely comfortable and durable enough to keep you sleeping cozy wash cycle after wash cycle. Fabric matters!


Myth #3: It doesn’t matter where you buy your sheets

At Molecule, we believe that where you source your comfort from is important. We’ve taken the time to craft an amazingly comfortable product that is not only durable and comfortable—but is also environmentally conscious. You will sleep better at night knowing that every drop of water that went into processing your new Molecule sheets was recycled. Make the responsible choice and enjoy your sleep like the eco-hero you are!


Myth #4: You buy it, you're stuck with it

If you don’t like your new sheets, there’s nothing you can do about it, right? Wrong! At Molecule, we’re so confident in the performance of our new Tencel blend that you can try these silky-soft sheets for up to 60 nights of sleep, and if they aren’t for you, we’ll take them back and refund you. Why be stuck with anything less than perfect?

Myth #5: All sheets have the same lifespan

Nope. Sheets go through a lot. The average sheet runs through a washing machine countless times over several years. All that wear calls for a strong material. Sheets with a low thread count and low-quality materials hold wrinkles, stretch easily, and quickly lose their initial softness. How do you prevent that wear and tear? One word: quality.


Molecule has designed the perfect sheet with a new blend of cotton sateen that holds up better  against wrinkles and wear in the wash. What this means for you is peace of mind: you can rest easy, knowing that your new favorite pair of sheets will stay fresh and smooth for a long, long time.
