DETOX YOUR HOME Organic Bedding

Best Organic/Natural Bedding

I’ve rounded out my favorite organic/natural bedding on the blog today!  So you all know I’ve been on the hunt for some non-toxic bedding options.  As we’ve slowly renovated our bedroom it was a goal of mine to swap out our bedding.  I did have some sheets that were bamboo but they were 5 years old and needed an update.  Plus, they always came off our king size bed- not a fan!

I was able to test out a couple different sheet options. A higher budget option and a lower budget option.  They both worked out great and I would recommend them each.  Now you might be thinking why make the switch to organic sheets or bedding?  Well, there’s a lot of factors at play.  Allow me to explain.

Since we spend about a 1/3 of our life in bed it’s important to know what were sleeping on.  Cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops.  Being doused with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  However, that’s not the only thing we should be concerned about.  Sheets often contain formaldehyde, and toxic dyes too.  There are also toxic softeners that are used now on bedding, creating a recipe for a toxic sleep experience!

Obviously it can be hard to throw out all the old bedding at once but I recommend starting with one room and slowly doing it when you can.  I recommend starting with your sheets and towels since they are right next to your skin.

What to look for when buying organic sheets?

  • Look for sheets that are certified organic by the GOTS- Global Organic Textile Standard.  For more info. on GOTS click here. This standard ensures the product is made without any toxic chemicals and that at least 90% of fibers are organic.  Also, no child or slave labor.  It’s peace of mind when buying the sheets if you see this label.  It means the sheets were made using pure and clean standards.
  • Avoid sheets or blankets that say “Wrinkle Resistant”, “Easy Care”, or “Permanent Press.”  These words indicate that formaldehyde resin was used in the process and it will NOT rinse out.
  • BE AWARE- just because a sheet set says “organic cotton” does not mean they’re certified organic.  It may indicate the cotton was grown organically but after that the fabric was processed with toxic chemicals.
  • Look for Oeko- Tex Certified Sheets.  These sheets may not be grown organically but they are tested for unhealthy chemicals in the final product.  These often tend to be a little less expensive and easier to find. For more on Oeko- Tex Certification click here.

So what did I end up for my bedding?

Sheets-

SOL Organics- These sheets are what luxury is made of!  They are made with fair trade certified cotton, and certified organic cotton.  The second party certifications include GOTS, Oeko-Tex and FLOCERT- a global fair trade certification.  These 300 thread count cotton sheets wrap you up in softness the minute they touch your skin!  They come in a variety of colors too. We chose white and are happy with how crisp and clean they look.  They also have 3 different sheet sets.  You can get a hemmed version, classic or pleated.  We got the hemmed version.  Each set comes with two pillow cases, a fitted sheet and a flat sheet.  And yes they stay on our mattress too!  They also come in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King and Split King. Can’t say enough about these luxury sheets.  They also offer organic duvet covers and bedroom sets that include the duvet and sheet set.  They were kind enough to offer a discount for my readers.  Use coupon code: GGG25 for 25% off all products over $99, plus free shipping within the U.S.  Shop here for all bedding!

Target Organic Sheet Sets- Now you can find organic sheet sets at Target even.  I bought a set to try out for you guys too.  I wanted to give you a budget friendly option.  These sheets are also certified by GOTS and Oek0-Tex.  The king size comes in at $55.99- not bad for a toxin free sheet option.  These also come with two pillow cases, fitted and flat sheet.  They aren’t as silky soft as the SOL Organics.  They have a stiffer feel and texture to them.  Some people may like that feel, others may not.  It’s obviously your preference.  My hubs could tell a difference when comparing the Target sheets to the SOL Organics.  I think these would be a great option for kids, who may not notice.  However, for adults it might be nice to splurge a little on the SOL Organics!  These come in some fun prints if your into printed sheets.  We got the White- which does have some grey lines going across it but they call it White.   Check out the Target sheets here! 

Coverlet/Euro Shams- I ended up going with a West Elm Coverlet cover.  I used to have a duvet cover and down cover but due to allergies and not having a big enough washer to properly wash it all the time(hello dust mites) I ended up going with just a bedspread.  It’s organic and super chic if I do say so myself!  They have shams as well that I got to match as you can see above.  I got the euro shams.  I went with the frost gray color and really love it.  I really like how the coverlet isn’t stiff feeling and is soft and cozy.  West Elm also has more options for organic bedding too.  Check out the coverlet I got here! 

Plisse Blanket- This is an organic cotton blanket my friend Steph from @stephdufordlifestyle had recommended to me from West Elm.  She had raved about them and I knew once I started detoxing my bedding I was going to snag one of these for the bed.  It’s such a perfect layering blanket.  We have our sheet down first, then this Plisse blanket.  It gets softer the more you wash it too!  We got ours in the color white.  I like having a couple layers of blankets on the bed and this is a perfect fit.  Get your Plisse blanket here!

Oeko-Tex Blanket- Ok, so I wanted a warmer blanket for during the winter to layer on my bed.  I knew in the summer I would take it off.  I found one from Target that I like.  It isn’t organic, however, I was ok with that.  My biggest concern was that it was at least Oeko-Tex certified.  As mentioned above they test for harmful substances once the product is made.  I was excited to see how many options for Oeko-Tex were at Target!  I was ok with it not being organic since it’s not directly touching my skin and it’s Oeko-Tex Certified.  Check out all the blankets here!

Nightstands- The nightstands are from All Modern and they’re made from a combination of real wood and manufactured wood.  I wasn’t as concerned with the nightstands since they’re a lot smaller piece of furniture.  Plus, I let them air out in the garage for a week and outside when it was sunny to help off gas as much as possible.  There wasn’t a strong smell at all once we brought them in. Here are the nightstands I got from All Modern!

Lamp- The lamps I got from All Modern too.  I had been eyeing them for a while.  I love anything with gold and these just make a statement!  Check out the lamps here!

Bed Frame-  I’ve been searching for a new bed frame for a while.  I had some strict guidelines when looking.  It had to be made of real wood- no particle board or manufactured wood because of the chemicals involved in the process.  Since a bed is such a large piece of furniture I didn’t want it off gassing harmful fumes. It also couldn’t be cloth or fabric.  Although I do like the look of the cloth headboards, from research I’ve learned how dust mites can live in them!  Plus, I wondered how they would really get clean, since you can’t take the cloth off.  After much looking I landed on the West Elm Mid Century Modern Bed.  It’s not only made with real wood but fair trade as well.  The price wasn’t so crazy either.  I found most furniture made from all wood can be very costly.  I’m SO happy with the purchase!  It didn’t even have a smell when we opened it other than just a pleasant real wood smell.  My hubs was impressed with how well it was made too.  Can’t recommend it enough!  Check out the West Elm Bed Frame here! 

That sums up my organic/natural bedding review!  Did you see anything you like?

    I like all of the organic bedding products you described. I never thought of the toxic load that traditional bedding carries. Scary thought! I’ll have to check out the organic sheets next time I’m at Target

    I haven’t tried organic sheets yet but it’s on my list of wants. We’ve been trying to live a cleaner life by paying closer attention to what we use and buy on a daily basis. We made the switch the natural laundry detergent so now we just need some organic sheets!

    I just bought Under the Canopy organic brushed cotton sheets and really like them! Bought them on sale at JcPenney and used a coupon so they were super reasonable. I bought Target Organic sheets based on their great reviews and they were way too stiff for me, but agree that they are an affordable option for kids. Thank you for the Target microplush blanket recommendation….definitely getting one of those!

    Talk to me about mattress pads/covers! Do you use one, and if so, what is the best kind that is waterproof (still got 2 littles that like to crawl in bed with us lol) and non-toxic/organic? We just bought expensive non-toxic mattresses and I want to protect them. Better to shell out the money for an expensive mattress pad/cover or do you have a budget friendly option that you’ve come across? Thanks!
