Lets talk dirty in the bedroom for a few minutes since we are a day after Valentines Day and we may be washing sheets and making coffee. Here’s a quick read to shock and educate you quickly at the same time. There’s not too many things that can shock a housekeeper the day after Valentine’s Day because let’s be real, we are all humans and the bedroom is where we
relax, relate and release after a long day. One thing that really is shocking is something that I know is behind a lot of people’s allergies, and it starts in the bedroom.
The Hotel Housekeeping Secret.
Have you ever gotten in a hotel bed and wondered why is it tucked so tight and why and what is this sometime three step sheet process?
Maybe, maybe not. Most of us are too exhausted to care, or just wanna relax and don’t notice. This hotel secret however is the way hotels keep their comforters clean and dust levels to the bare minimums in any bedroom.
It’s all in the sheets!
The thread count isn’t a factor here, but the amount of sheets is.
Most hotels use a three sheet process to protect the comforter and occupants in the bed from dust.
IF YOU HAVE A DUVET COVER ON YOUR BED AND WASH IT WITH YOUR SHEETS THEN YOU’RE ALREADY ON THE PATH TO A DUST FREE SLEEP.
My Own Personal Bedroom Secret.
I went to grab my black eye mask on the side of my bed and was shocked at my own bedroom secret. I travel to our Dallas location using the Vonlane Bus at least weekly and use this eye mask to sleep. It had a light coat of grey dust. I was immediately grossed out. I dust often and change my sheets weekly, but didn’t expect there to be dust on an eye mask I use weekly.
That very moment in my own home took me back to when our housecleaning in Downtown Austin Condo clients taught us how to make their bed. 🤓
I know it sounds funny to hear that after providing cleaning services in downtown Austin for over 24 years that I’d need some instruction on how to make a bed but I was schooled quickly.
The Secrets That Hotels Use That Our Client Taught Us Too.
So if the eye mask is collecting dust in a week on my nightstand, imagine the dust collecting in a comforter on the bed. We wash the sheets often, but the comforter is protecting the sheets from the dust and collecting it over time.
In 24 years I’ve had two clients with this three sheet process and today I truly know why they implement it.
STEP 1. Place fitted sheet on bed.
STEP 2. Place longer flat sheet on bed but fit it to where it will cover over the comforter and sheets and fold back to the design or embroidered top area of the sheet
STEP 3. Place comforter and top sheet over comforter.
STEP 5. Fold the sheets over the comforter and hospital corner tuck in to make a secure fitting.
