Percale vs. Sateen Sheets – What’s the Difference?

Katie Golde: Hey guys, it’s Katie from MattressClarity. Today, we’re talking about the differencebetween percale and sateen sheets. Now, if you’ve been sheet shopping in thelast century, you probably have seen these labels, and you may not know what they mean. They refer to different types of weaves. It’s important to know what they are becausethey affect the overall feel and experience you’re going to have with the sheets. I’m going to talk about the similarities,the differences, and who I think they’re a good fit for. We’re also going to get an up-close look atboth different types of sheets so you can get the best idea on what’s going to be theright one for you. Let’s dive into these sheets. [music] Katie: I do have one quick question for you. I want to know, after you watch this video,if you’re more “Team Percale” or “Team Sateen.” Which one do you think is going to be thebest fit for you? Don’t hesitate to comment below.Let me know. Write “Percale” if you like percale sheets,”Sateen” if you like sateen. I’m checking back, and I want to know whichone you like. Personally, I’m Team Percale, but I thinkthat they’re pretty much great across the board. Of course, if any questions come up, leavethem there, too. I’m always checking back. I want to talk to you about these sheets. First of all, both percale and sateen sheetsare woven with different fabrics from all different manufacturers. You’re going to see them in cotton, bamboo,and linen. What it means is how they’re woven, but theother thing that they have in common is that they’re both used with long-staple fibers. For example, the ones I have in my lap righthere are long-staple cotton. That means is that they’re more durable andthey’re softer compared to short-staple cotton, which is not going to hold up as much. If you see these weaves in any fabric justknow that they’re going to be synonymous with a higher quality sheet.You can’t go wrong with either. Let’s dive into each one, and I can give youan idea of which one’s going to be the best fit for you. Now, it’s time to learn a little bit aboutmore about the percale sheet. They are very popular. You’ll see them all over the place. In fact, I’m sitting on a set of cotton percalesheets, as well as holding them up right now to give you an idea of the fact that theyare everywhere. I want to talk to you about how they’re madefirst and why that results in the kind of fabric that it does. Percale, the weave itself is very simple. It’s a one-under/one-over weave. Think about summer camp potholder loom making,very simple basic construction. That results in a crisp, lightweight feel. These are cotton sheets, so bear that in mind. They can come in different fabrics. There’s something called a “Hand-feel” inthe sheet world. That means how does it feel on your hand? I’m going to show you. It definitely has that, again, crisp is thebest way to describe it.The cotton rustling is happening. It does drape nicely over my hand, it is reallysoft. It does hold its own. It’s got its own structure. For a better example, think of a nice hotelsheet or a nicely crisp laundered menswear shirt or womenswear shirt. Again, I hope you’re getting that vibe thatI’m trying [laughs] to share with you. That’s the feeling of percale. It is lightweight. It’s a great fit if you’re in a warm climate,you’re a hot sleeper, you have the night sweats, or something like that.Go with percale. It’s going to be nicer for you but keep inmind that it does tend to wrinkle a little bit easier than other weaves. What you’re going have to do, if you eitherhave an iron on you or take it right out of the dryer when it’s a little bit warm andput it straight on your bed. What’s the deal with sateen and why is itas popular as percale? A lot of that has to do with the complexityof the weave. A sateen, you’re going to go one-under/two-over,one-under/three-over, even one-under/four-over. Although that might seem very simple in thedifference, it creates a very different weave, different fabric overall. As a result, a very different sheet set. These sheets are a little bit thicker. They have a buttery feel to them. I’m going to hold up and do the hand feelfor you so that you get this idea here. You can see how it’s draping a little bitcloser to my hand.It’s extremely soft, a little bit thicker. Hopefully, you can see here, there’s a littlebit of luminosity, a little bit of a sheen. I’d go so far as to say a “Silkier” feel overall. If you think about it, putting that on yourbed with your beautiful pillows, your comforter, it’s all going to create such a rich, luxuriousfeel. I think that’s so appealing to people. Now, again, I mention that it is a littlebit of a thicker fabric overall, so that’s going to be great for those colder months. Maybe you like to sleep cold and so you wantthat warm sheet set. The sateen is going to be the right fit foryou. It is durable. Make sure you follow the care instructionsto keep it as long as possible. It may not be as durable as percale, but thenice thing here is that it doesn’t wrinkle as easily.By now, you’ve had a chance to learn a lotabout both types of weaves and hopefully have a clearer idea of which is going to be theright fit for you. I want to briefly recap them again. The percale sheets are going to be crisp,lightweight, breathable, and very durable, all great qualities. Remember, they are going to be a little moreprone to wrinkles. The sateen sheets are, without a doubt, goingto look amazing on your bed. They’re buttery soft, they have that nicesheen to them, but because they’re thicker, they’re going to sleep a little bit warm. Keep in mind, they might be better for thewinter. Now, the weave is just one of the many factorsto take into consideration when shopping for sheets.Don’t forget you’ve got fabric, color, threadcount, and, of course, you’ve got price. If you want to learn more, check out our YouTubechannel Mattress Clarity. You’ve got a whole bunch of sheet stuff [laughs]going on there. Don’t hesitate to let me know if you’ve gotany questions. Now, I’m exhausted. I’m going to go take a nap on these sheets,so I’ll see you later..

The sponsor is Wix, and Wix is fantastic. That’s not why I’m terrified. With Wix, you can create aprofessional website by yourself. I know this is true because I’m a professionalwebsite builder.I built from scratch and I got a Bachelor’s ofScience in Computer Science. I know how to program the computers and do the coding, and all that stuff. I also know this is truebecause I’ve used it. I’ve been using Wix to build a website for the World’s Hottest Chocolate Bar.

And I wanna build awebsite to showcase it, collect all the videos thatpeople out there have made trying to do this challenge.And I wanna tell you a bitmore about my experience and Wix while eating someof this chocolate bar. It’s crazy, and that’s why I’m terrified. Oh, this is a bad idea. Oh, man. It’s so spicy, okay. Right off the bat, Wix is free. No coding necessary, whatsoever. Everything’s drag or drop. There’s all these templates, so no matter what kind ofbusiness, personal blog, whatever you’re trying tobuild you can do it with Wix. Those are spice hiccups. Photos, you don’t need toknow Photoshop to put photos (hiccups)onto your website. Not at all. Video gallery, easy, just bring videos in. You can customize everything, if you want. (exhales loudly)I’m a little scared because if this whole Vat19thing doesn’t work out website design was gonnabe my fallback career.You don’t need people like me anymore, you can do it with Wix. It’s really easy to use. It really is. If you’ve ever wanted to build a website you can do it on your own. Visit Go check it out. All right. I’m gonna go calm down and we can get this episode started again. (beeping) I got a shoutout for you guys. We don’t do this very often but this video is extremely cool and Iwanna share it with you guys. It’s from Hevesh5.

This one could ridethrough the whole thing. – Woohoo, the next dirt soda? – It’s that fidgety. – Okay, I’m ready. – This is the Crunchy Snowball. – Okay.- It’s a stress ball, right? But it’s got, like, snowinside of it and you can, (crunching)crunch it. – Oh, that looks fun to my eyes. I like it, it’s a rubbery, crunchy noise. I wanna do it just watching you.Ooh, yeah, that is nice. – It’s like the sound of your boots like crunching down the snow. I’m getting kind of jealous that you’re like hogging it. (laughing)- You’re just like, all right when’s my turn, Eric? (grunting)(laughing) – Your hands are hotand kinda, kinda sweaty. – Oh yeah, oh that’s me, yeah. That’s just, I’m always on. I run hot! I mean, right now it’s in the lead. – Yeah, that one’s definitely winning.All right, I’m bringing thenext thing and we’ll see. I don’t know if it’s,like, crunch ball worthy. – All right, wait hey! Don’t poo it.- Here we go. This is Spicy Cinnamon Taffy. And it’s not like challenge food spice, I know you can’t handleintense amounts of spice. – I don’t like spice. – You might be thinking to yourself, like, candy, is that really desktop? – Make it desktop. – This, right, is theplastic bag glass bowl. Right, it looks like a Ziploc bag. This is available at Vat19. (glass clinking)It’s made out of glass. – That’s nice. – Smell it, waft it. – Oh, yeah. – Yeah.- Yeah. – Yeah.- It’s nice. – I’m gonna have one too ’cause why not?- That’s fair.I guess it’s a desk I canshare with my coworkers. – This one takes, like, aminute to fully ramp up. – The more you chew. – I love that cinnamon flavor so much. It’s a good amount of it. – I say it’s got a little bitmore of a kick than Big Red. – Yeah. – Not too much more, but a little bit. – Big important question here, which one are you keeping on your desk? – I feel like you know the answer, Jamie. – Are you keeping this? I mean this is good. – Here’s a fun fact. (laughs) Jamie, at one time, coinedmy nickname to be Trashcan because I would eat everything. – Yeah. – Around the studio.- Yeah. – So I think you know— You have an appetite. – Which way I’m gonna lean. – Oh, I’m a little surprised but not. – I love my sweets! – Yeah, you are justall about your stomach. Gonna get you something else to try out. I got something prettyunique for your desk here.- Okay. – The Screaming Goat. – Okay. – Okay, I feel like this isalready off to a bad start but this thing’s pretty cool, okay? You’ve got this goat figurine in here. Let me just bust that out. Look at that folks, right? He’s on, like, a tree stump there. You get a 32-page leafletfilled with goat facts. – I need to know my goat facts. – To also have on your desk there. Let’s give an example of one. Well, this is actuallya quiz question. (dings) Why do goats scream? Is it A they’re hungry,B they miss their mom, C they’re in distress, or D all of the above. – I assume distress butmaybe all of the above. – It’s actually all of the above. (dings) – They’re just hungry and they scream? – I guess so. If you press him, here we go. (goat screaming) – Is that real? – That’s what goats actually sound like. – That’s nuts. I mean it’s fun, it’s unique, it’s quirky, it’s quirky.I like it. – But do you like it morethan the spicy taffy? – No. The taffy’s gonna be tough to dethrone. – Okay, this one is going totickle your brain bone, okay? – Ugh. – This is the Bioluminescent – Pass!- Mug. – Hard pass. It’s just a black mug! – I gotta show you what it does, Eric. – Okay. – It’s a heat change mugand it’s filled with fish and other sea creaturesthat live way down deep in the ocean that light up.- I dig it. – You gotta put somepretty hot water in it. – The suspense is killing me. Oh, wait. There’s something happening over here. – Can you see it changing? I love heat change mugs. I think they’re so much fun, so cool. And it’s got a wholebunch of different, like, deep sea creatures. Jelly fish.- All the creatures have emerged. – Right, the angler fish. You drink coffee and whatnot? – I do, I do. If we pretend like there’s coffee in here, I’m taking the mug. – But this isn’t a make believe show, it’s actually happening. Kara’s right there, we’re recording. So you have to make a decision if it’s this one or this one. – If I’m being totally honest, I don’t wanna mug full of water. – Oh, for the rest of theshow that’s your problem? So you’re sticking with the spicy taffy? – I guess so since you’re playingit real, we can’t pretend. – I’m gonna get another product.- Okay. – I don’t think the taffystands a chance against this. – Okay. – This is Desktop Curling. – Oh, playing on my love of the Olympics. – Yeah. Playing up your love of not working. – That’s true. I love me some not working. – And you can just putthis on your desk and play. – Give it a test curl. (object rolling) Decent, decent.- Yeah you’re right, I love not working. I love desk games. I’m going with the Desktop Curling. – Well, I’m glad you chose this one because it’s also this episode’sGolden Gummy Challenge. – [Announcer] Competitor’s ready for the Golden Gummy Challenge.

(object rolling) – [Both] Oh! – I think he won becauseof that or something. – I don’t even think we needto go to the score thing.

Hundred percent desk. – I feel like thesarcasm is being laid on. – This is not shameless merch plug. Okay, this is the new Vat19 hat. – Oh. – That’s mine, you can’t have it. – But I can wear it, get my grease on it. Does this have to be on thedesk for it to be a desk thing? – I don’t know, this wasjust a shameless merch plug. They’re available now on the website. – Yeah, so I’m thinking because it’s yours and you’re wearing it and it doesn’t belong on a desk really I’m gonna keep my Desktop Curling.I think that’s a big winner here. – So, you need to explainthe title to this video. (sighs) – This is my last Awesome Time. (laughing) I really wanted to do likea joke for this, like, I wanted to make this, like, a funny joke. – Yeah but no one would believe us.

6 Crops to Plant in August for Late Summer Harvest πŸŒΏπŸ…πŸ₯’

hi everyone will I always want to havefresh vegetables to pick from my garden and today I’m gonna plant six new cropshere in August so that when my summer vegetables are finishing up and startingto die out I’ll have some fresh new vegetables ready to pick now I know whatyou’re thinking if you’re like me your garden beds are full well not a problembecause today we’re gonna actually create some new space by growingvertically on a really simple inexpensive trellis and in containersand we’re also going to tuck these plants into little holes in the gardenbeds now the crops I’m planting today are easy to grow and go from seed toharvest in about six to eight weeks that’s why I’m planting these particularvegetables because there’s still time to get a harvest before the cold weatherhits now most of these can be planted directly in your garden beds which makesit really easy if you want to you can start from seeds indoors under growlights but I just started these seeds in a tray here right outside on my deck theweather is nice and warm and they sprouted really fast now I just plantedthese on July 11th about three weeks ago ago and you can see how big they alreadyare and they’re ready to be planted now the first crop we’re going to planttoday is cucumbers now if you’ve grown cucumbers before you know they’re avining plant and they can take up a lot of space so we’re gonna grow themvertically up a trellis now I am really excited about this trellis it’s gonnamake a nice little arch over the garden bed and I got the idea from Gary at therest of the garden when he visited his house in Maryland about a month ago thisis called ladder mesh I picked it up at Home Depot it’s about 350 apiece so it’sreally inexpensive I have two pieces here that we’re going to zip tietogether and make a little arch over the garden bed so first off what I’m gonnado is attach my two pieces of ladder mesh with some zip ties I’m just gonnaline it up and to end so I overlap the ladder mesh just a little bit I’m goingto attach them as zip ties they’re nice and secure and I’m also attaching the ends of eachpiece of ladder mesh to the other piece that way we don’t have any sharp edgessticking out now that I have my two pieces of ladder mesh attached I’m justgonna arch it over at these two garden beds here now the great thing is becausewe’re growing vertically our cucumbers are not going to take up a lot of spaceand neither is this trellis so look for a garden bed or two garden beds that youhave a couple holes in pop the trellis in and you’ll be good to go with yourcucumbers so it’s super easy to install just gonna push it down into the soilsoil is nice and loose here and then arch it over but I’m really excitedabout this I think it’s gonna really add some texture and dimension to the hillhere it’s gonna look really pretty you’re putting it right down into thesoil here now what I’m gonna do is just pound in a bamboo pole into my trellishere to just give it a little bit of extra support now I’ve had these piecesof bamboo around my yard for a lot of years you can use anything you havearound your yard just something that’s nice and sturdy that will provide alittle bit of extra support for your trellis okay now let’s go to the otherside now the variety of cucumbers I’m planting today are the space mastercucumbers and the reason why I really like to plant these right now in thelate summer is because they’re are more compact quicker growing variety andthese are in my late summer garden seed collection which I’ve packaged togetherto make it really easy for you there’s seven varieties in here of quick growingvegetables and they’re on sale right now at my website 15% off with the codeAugust so pick them up and you can get your garden planted so we’re just gonnapop these out here and I am gonna add some her mysterio worm castings to thesoil you do want to make sure you’re amending your soil because if you’vebeen growing in it all summer it definitely needs some more nutrients soyou can see here I have three little seedlings in my little seedcell here but don’t worry about it you can grow cucumbers really closelytogether but I’m just gonna put them in here plant them right at the base of mytrellis and they’re gonna grow right up over the trellis and be absolutelybeautiful now I’m really loving the look of this trellis so far I mean thisliterally took me about five minutes to install and it only cost me about $7 soit’s really quick and inexpensive so besides planting a couple oftransplants there you can also plant cucumbers from seed which I’m gonna dohere on the other side so that when this batch over here is dying out I’ll havesome plants at different stages of harvest so they’ll be ready for thepicking then so I’m gonna pour a few seeds into my hand here maybe aboutthree seeds and just poke them right into the soil and cucumbers are sofast-growing as long as it’s still warm weather where you live they’re gonnasprout within a week or so and start growing there’s nothing more deliciousin this summer than a fresh cucumber now because I want these plants to go reallyfast I do want to feed them with a good water water soluble fertilizer right offthe bat so I get going really fast so I put a couple of pumps of the good dirtplant food now I’ve tried this in my garden for several years it is reallygonna get these plants off to a great start it has a 10 in nitrogen so it’llgive them some nice good leafy growth and then I’m also adding some of thevermis Terra worm tea to my watering can here and that just adds all the goodbeneficial bacteria keep your plants nice and healthyso I water my cucumber transplant with it here and it is gonna be amazing towatch these plants grow you guys can do this too get out there and get some ofthese planted it’s so so easy and you’ll love having the harvest later in thesummer now the next vegetable that we’re gonnaplant is beans now beans are one of those vegetables that you can plant andgrow all summer long because they grow so fast so if you don’t have any spacein your garden beds definitely plant some in a container these were plantedabout 10 days ago believe it or not look how fast they’re already growingand you can pick one of these containers on my website but I also want you tolook for some holes in your garden bed so right here I have a little spacethat’s empty that’s a perfect spot to tuck some bean seeds so again I’m justgoing to add some of the worm castings to the soil to amend the soil I’m gonnaplant right here along this drip irrigation hose and you will be amazedat how quickly these beans grow it’s so much fun to see them pop through thesoil within just a matter of a week or so and these are the Blue Lake Bushbeans from the late summer garden seed collection a really tasty green bean sowe’re just gonna plant the seeds maybe an inch or so apart cover them with soiland we’re good to go now the third quick growing vegetablethat I’m gonna plant is squash now you can plant any variety of squash that youlike I’m gonna plant some of the crookneck squash from the late summergarden seed collection and I’m just gonna get it out of the container hereby loosening it up and you can see here I’ve got three or four differenttransplants growing and I’m actually only gonna plant one in this particularspot and I’ll look for another little hole in my garden to plant some more andsquash is another vegetable that you can also plant seeds directly in your gardenit grows so fast and I’m telling you guys this is gonna be ready to harvestprobably in another month or so and whoever stops by he’ll be sharing yoursquash with I’m going to gently separate the seedlings there we go get it in hereI already added worm castings to the soil let’s pop it right down here inthis hole and squash likes full Sun so the spot gets a lot of nice full Sunduring the day squash does like a good little bit of space so this squash willspill over this garden bed and look really pretty but if you want to savespace when you grow squash I’ll show you right here I have a zucchini plantthat’s actually growing in a tomato cage so you can see here I’ve been weavingthese leaves in throughout this tomato cage to help save space the plant growsup and doesn’t sprawl over the garden bed now the fifth vegetable it’sactually an herb that I’m going to plant today is basil basil is such an easyherb to grow so if you don’t grow any other warm weather herb grow basilso here I have some little seedlings again started about three weeks ago I’mgonna pop some here in this container and we’re also gonna pop them in alittle hole that I have over here in the garden bed you can also plant seedsdirectly in your container or in your garden bed and it doesn’t really matterif you plant basil and clumps like this it does just fine it’s very quick andsimple to pop into a container and it grows very very fast you can see theleaves are already

so we just kind of doubled it up so a lot of a lot of you are doing it it’s just yes it’s precious it’s clean it’s beautiful I just wish I know you can feel what we’re feeling in fact we’re gonna say hi to Marcia from Wisconsin thank you so much for holding on the line welcome your live on the air Marcia with Ellen and Lynn are you familiar with our concierge collection at HSN I think why I ordered the blank or yeah the blanket or throw whatever you call it yes and it’s the first one I’ve gotten okay so they’re infratry you are in for a treat let me ask you which color did you choose and what size Marcia I got the lavender even and I ordered the King even though my bed is a queen and we often Ellen Austin often suggests that that’s you know it’s a great point that was smart why not because that we put the mattered same price yeah oh good well and it’s a nice wait I’m sure especially now this time of the year for you in Wisconsin it’s it’s not too heavy so and the softest thing you can imagine Marcia well we have had a break last two days the humidity I actually have my windows open it’s like 75 degrees you’re just trying to rub it in and see we’re here in Florida Marcin so we’re the COS right thank you so much for calling we’re gonna ship it right out to you Martha great day bye-bye now she’s in for such a treat actually she ordered the purple and if you did order the blanket I just want to mention the purple would work back to the little lace that were showing though pretty even in the cottage or not yeah and yeah how pretty that is there’s so much color in this you could even just put the same basic oh my gosh yes blanket the white it goes white with this yes and look how pretty this would be with that gray or the white just a great look to this striped set as well and then if you really love that coastal or you’re bringing back all that blue and white that’s timeless never goes out of style this one we’re calling Damus and you’re getting that damn ass print to that deep rich color on your sheet and don’t forget about our pink and white polka dots here so you’ve got the solid pink with a bite polka dot on the hem as then you’ve got the full set in the polka dot this is a great time it’s very rare that you get the complete 2-pack it’s true under $50 if you want the polka dot the pink we’re starting to lose in all twin full queen king and california you can’t help him happy it’s just it’s so bright it’s so cheerful it’s so happy and summery and just makes the room it really does and the thing about this set that I love is if you get bored with your bedding and sometimes sheets can get boring since microfiber came around it’s so affordable that we can not only afford to play a little bit but we can have more sets so you can mix and match you could flip the pillowcases you could do your polka-dots one day you could do your solid with the polka-dots the next c-money anyway like doing this this is the big look now in jewelry they’re doing that they actually don’t like mismatched so they do like you know a different gem and a different color and a different style it’s really fun it’s they harmonize but they’re completely different you know maybe if you have a room that has two like twin beds this would be so cute because she would have dwarf four bunks bunk beds we always recommend three sets of sheets per bed yes you pack here most of the way there and this is a sheet set that is exclusive so you don’t find it raining where else and you know thinking in terms of and I know we almost take this for granted but most places when you’re getting you know beautiful patterns or unique prints you’re going oh that’s a given but you’re you’re actually buying everything separately so you would but you know buy your flat sheet separately than you would your fitted sheet and you’re keeping your fingers crossed hope that they have the matching print that is available in the red sheet that you know you need for that sometimes they do sometimes they don’t and then you’re paying extra for the pillowcases that that’s not the case here and then you know everything is included it’s look at it she a does look custom and I love it when it’s done for you because you have the print that matches back to the solid all color-coordinated so it’s not like it’s off a little bit or no it’s all cons here and it’s just so rich looking we are very very busy I’m not surprised at this first time sale price so it brings it down to basically $25 per so my gosh to get these home I mean if you’ve shopped especially if you have a king-size bed or a California king typically you see a price and you can almost double it for your size bed to get just the four king-sized pillowcases in this and I love the fact too that it’s soft and it’s comfortable many times if you fall in love with a fashion sheet you know it’s not going to be comfortable and comfortable you’re not sacrificing that for style well we have the final minute they’re telling us and of course you can shop the entire concierge collection and continue if you’re having a hard time getting through because I know we’re very very busy shop oh my goodness between the blanket and I love it too because they do sync the colors because it’s an exclusive line windows so if you order one of the solid colors so you’re saying will work back beautifully nicer you know the white obviously with this blush and the polkadot but we have the sage and the grays and the who the gold fact what that Leopard I mean the sky’s the limit well we are building the perfect bed for you so we had the perfect absolute everything about it the softest blanket but the perfect weight for this time of year can’t get over this special in microfiber the 2-pack so let’s build that bed and we have to have of course our

Brooklinen Sheets Review – Should You Buy Them and is Percale for You?

Sarah Riccio: Hey, gang. It’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today we’ll be taking a look at the ClassicCore sheet set from Brooklinen. I’m going to show you what they’re made of. What I’m loving about them and what I’m notso crazy about. You can decide if this might be the rightsheet set for you. If after this video, you’re really not surethis is the right fit, just google “Sleepopolis best sheets.” We’ll help you find the bedding that is bestfor you.Let’s get started. [music] Sarah: The sheets are on the mattress. Before we get into what they’re made of, justwant to take a second to acknowledge the packaging that they came in. The sheet set comes in this cute tote bag. It’s got the Brooklinen insignia on each side. It feels really durable and it’s a prettygood size, so you can, of course, use it for practical bedding storage. You could also use it to carry your books,small laptop or other knick-knacks. I like when bedding brands offer little perkslike that. Props for a cute packaging. These sheets are made from 100 percent long-staplecotton. They feature a 270 thread count in a percaleweave. Basically, that’s leaving them feeling breathable,cool, crisp and in the words of the folks at Brooklinen, “hotel bed” feel. Right away, I can tell why they call it theClassic Core set. Because it does have that classic percalepersonality, super-crisp to the touch, very cool, super-breathable, also very light andairy. I’m definitely getting the sense that theseare going to be a go-to in the summertime. What you’re getting with each set is a fittedsheet capable of accommodating mattresses up to 15 inches deep, which are relativelydeep pockets.Folks with taller mattresses, this might beparticularly beneficial for you. I’m on a mattress right now that’s about 11inches deep. There was an excess fabric that is tightlytucked underneath the mattress for a really snug fit. Comes with one top sheet, which like I said,it’s giving me this very crisp, hotel-bed feel. I can feel, it’s very light and breathableand very lightweight. I’m definitely getting a sense, these arevery cooling Then you get two pillowcases which featurethese little envelope closures on the side, which is, in my opinion, a big perk. These little details like envelope closures,that in my opinion make a big difference because you got this little piece of extra fabrichere.There’s none of these like tag, pillow spillageout of the side. It doesn’t have the slit down in the middle. This is definitely how I like my pillowcasesto be. My first impression of these sheets is thatthey’re definitely, like I said, what I referred to as a classic percale personality. Even taking what we know about percale, whichis light, cool, airy and crisp, taking all those factors to the next level a little bit. These don’t feel just a little crisp, lightand airy, they feel very much all of those things. I’m pretty excited to see how they perform. Let’s get in and check it out. [music] Sarah: As soon as I jump into bed, the firstthing I’m noticing is how cool and breathable these are. Definitely seeing that they’re going to bea go-to in the summertime. As I’m billowing the top sheet over my body,I’m feeling that they’re more than just breathable. They’re actively serving to cool me down.I am a year-round hot sleeper, so it’s a goodchance that I would use these for year-round use. However, if you’re not prone to night sweatslike I am, or you are not a hot sleeper, you might want to save these for the summer months. Another thing I am realizing is that thesemay be the crispest percale sheets I’ve ever tested. Definitely giving me those hotel-bed vibes. They’re super-crisp, like I said, very thatpercale personality, but even more so. Something that the crispness is contributingto a little bit is a crinkling noise.[crinkling sound] I don’t know if you canhear, but when you’re bunching the fabric together, even rolling around in bed, youcan definitely hear a lot of crinkling. I’m a pretty sound sleeper, certainly wouldn’tbe enough to wake me up. But if you are sensitive to those crinkling,swishy noises, something to keep in mind. Like I said, definitely keeping in line withwhat we know about percale, it’s light, it’s breathable, it’s airy. Another thing [laughs] is they’re definitelywrinkly. Even just removing them from the packaging,they were already pretty wrinkled. It’s something that’s pretty characteristicof percale. I’m noticing of a little more pronounced withthese sheets than what some other percale sheets I’ve tested. Luckily, they are machine-wash and dryable,so I would definitely want to remove them from the dry cycle as soon as it’s finishedyou can spread over the mattress when they’re still warm and wrinkle-free.That should serve to keep the wrinkles atbay. Something I’m also loving though is that thefitted sheet is staying very snugly put on the mattress. I am a combo sleeper. When I’m rolling around at night, I need toknow if the fitted sheet is not going slip off the mattress. It’s not going to have the gapping or bunchingat all. As you can see it’s still got a very tightfit on the mattress, that’s important to me. Also loving the envelope enclosures of thepillows. When you want to embrace your pillow…IfI’m sleeping on my stomach and I want to put my arms underneath, I like that there’s noway for my hand to get caught, when this slit is sometimes down the middle. I’m liking that. I will say that they’re definitely very lightalmost bordering on a little thin. Hot sleepers, this product is going to begood pick for you. Folks who love the cool crispness of percale,definitely a good recommendation.Ultimately, I’m feeling like this is a veryclassic core bedding essential. I think would be a great addition to any beddingcollection. There’s lot to like about these sheets, butjust to name a few. They’re obviously going to keep even the hottestof sleepers cool. As I’m rolling around in these sheets, I amfeeling their cooling, breathable nature. Feeling really light and airy, like I said,definitely going to be a great pick for those warmer summer months, or if you are a year-roundhot sleeper like myself, it might be great for year-round use, but definitely lovingthe cooling quality.Another thing is they are, like I said, maybethe crispest percale sheets I have ever tested. They’re really giving you that fresh hotel-bedfeel. If you are a sleeper who loves that crisppercale nature, you might be particularly compatible with these. Another thing is these small details likethe envelope closures of the pillowcase, especially the labeling of the fitted sheet. It’s got the short-side label short, the long-sidelabel long. You can breeze past that fitted sheet shuffling. I am in favor of anything that’s going toget the bed made faster. I like that between the nice envelope closuresand the labeling of the fitted sheet.Brooklinen’s making my whole sleep experiencea little bit easier. Couple of things to note about these sheets. Firstly, like I said, they are super-crisp. In my opinion, almost a little too crisp. Again, this is totally a matter of personalpreference, but in my experience, it almost felt like the super-crisp nature of thesesheets detract a little bit from the softness. Granted, I do prefer a silky smooth satinweave.I’m putting my own personal preference onthis. If you are sleeper for whom sheets can neverbe too crisp, definitely want to give these a try. Another thing that I am noticing about thesesheets is that they do wrinkle really easily. Again, this is very characteristic of a percaleweave, so it’s not specific to Brooklinen sheets. But it’s something to keep in mind. These definitely wrinkle pretty easily andwrinkle pretty much throughout. Luckily, they’re machine-dryable. Running them through the dry cycle and pullingthem out when they’re still warm and wrinkle-free spreading them out on the mattress like thatit’s going to help keep those wrinkles at bay.Lastly, the super-crisp nature of these sheets,in my opinion, is contributing a little bit to a crinkling sound. Again, it’s not that big of a deal. I doubt it’s going to keep you up at night,certainly wouldn’t keep me up. But something worth noting when you roll aroundthese sheets, when you’re rubbing into the fabric, there’s definitely some crinklinggoing on.

Indoor Tabletop Forest Garden | Indoor Garden Ideas | Indoor Plants Decoration//GREEN PLANTS

welcome to my channel in this video i’m going to make a table top forest garden first i just take a piece of plastic sheet place the plastic sheet on the flat surface placing the coconut husk around the sheet placing the another piece of plastic sheet adding the stones next adding potting soil next planting some indoor plants add the stones on the top of the soil placing some gravel rocks and colored stones after all, watering the forest garden.


hey loss how’s it going it’s Anne welcome to my channel I have been sharing with you my lifestyle change on how I want to simplify and live toward a more minimal lifestyle and I’m just so grateful and happy that you also resonate it with my message so I want to continue on with this and share with you all my lifestyle changes my healthy habits and so today I’m going to share with you how I create a reduce waste a zero waste kit that you can carry around with you every day or leave in your car for traveling or for work I truly believe that everything starts with the right intentions and from there you create it through healthy habits and you live by example by your actions and just by doing that you know you can just create this whole new lifestyle that is going to enrich everything around you and yourself I know that I have a lot to improve but I’m really happy that I’m doing something about it and that I’m moving forward with this so I hope that I can impact and inspire you in some way or the other so let’s go ahead and get started alright so let’s go over the basic items that you can make and keep in your kit we’re gonna start off with this non-toxic a DIY hand sanitizer I’ve been wanting to make this for a while now so finally here’s my chance this is super easy to make you can make a whole bunch of this for you and your family starting with a 4 ounce spray bottle I’m going to fill it up 1/4 of the way with some aloe vera gel this is great for soothing irritations and reduce inflammation and also hydrates your skin now we’re going to fill up the bottle with some witch hazel it’s antimicrobial and also an astringent that helps heal the skin from irritations and other allergy reactions then I’m going to add in about 6 to 10 drops of vitamin E oil which helps soothe skin and also is a natural preservative lastly I’m going to add in about 15 drops of lavender oil to give it a nice a scent make sure to shake up other ingredients well and then you can use it I am such a fan of the spray I actually made an extra bottle to leave in my car for whenever I need to use it now for this next DIY we’re going to make some handkerchief here I have an older organic cotton flannel bedsheet that I’m going to repurpose and cut into rectangular squares alright so this next part is totally up to you but what I’m going to do with the raw edges is fold them about half an inch in and sew them by doing so the edges will look nice and clean and I can use this over many times as reusable napkins without having the raw edges unravel on me this really helps me eliminate using paper towels and it’s been super practical to have around in the house and made a whole bunch of this and after I’m done using them I just wash them and reuse and of course I’m going to include a reusable tumbler for my kit you can of course use any other containers you prefer I love using straws because it’s very similar to ordering a takeout container and I’d love to see what I’m drinking at the moment it just gives me that satisfaction to reduce waste and to also enjoy my day I would take this to my local cafe and ask for them to fill it up with my favorite drink this tumbler holds up to 20 ounces of liquid altogether so I would just pay whatever it’s equivalent to and my cafe don’t mind filling it up at all this next tip is very handy when it comes to going to the farmers market alright so if you have some paper bags I highly recommend for you to include that in your kit make sure that they come in different sizes I love bringing this to the farmers market with me or just going produce shopping because all my produce stays more fresh in paper bags then they do in plastic bags so what I do with this brown paper is I just cut them up into different sized pieces I roll them up and just tie them together with this twine so when I go to the grocery stores or the local farmers market I just buy my produce wrap them in between this and place them in the fridge they will stay fresh longer than in a PLAs the bags my fifth essential item that I like to carry around with me is a foldable reusable shopping bag although I am carrying a tote bag already sometimes I do pick up other things along the way especially when I’m running errands and this help prevents me from just bringing home more plastic bags you can customize your own kit too however way you like whatever is more suitable for your lifestyle you can add a food container depending on you know what you do during the day time or where you’re going so I have a few kits here this is my travel kit and then I have a work kit and then I also sometimes like to switch up my bag to something more edgy you know so it could go with my outfits and that way I can still excited about this lifestyle change instead of filling restrict it to being a certain way I hope today’s video inspires you so that way you can start creating healthy habits for yourself and everything else around you thank you all so much for watching make sure to give this video a thumbs up comment below let me know which one is your favorite item in this kit what would you add what would you not have and I will see you next Thursday love you ciao

How To Roll Sushi Rolls – How To Make Sushi Rolls

In this video Im going to show you howto roll sushi. Rolling Square Sushi or Circular?When it comes to rolling sushi there are two schools of thought, there is a square schoolof thought and a circular school of thought. Now both are great, it doesnt really matter,I mean just whatever you prefer to roll is what you should do. I like to mix and matchbecause then I do one roll one way another roll another way, it adds diversity on theplate, you know? You can make beautiful color floral and you can also have them differentshapes which makes it quite interesting to look at instead of just having the same plainshape. Once youve decided to go circular or squaredthe next option is half a sheet or full sheet.Now a full sheet is easier because most peoplewhen they try to make a sushi roll they will overstuff the roll and then you wont beable to close it. Now by using a full sheet you can use pretty much as much filling asyou want and youll be more or less guaranteed that youll always be able to close it.Half a Nori Sheet Rolling The half a sheet Nori sushi roll is what isnormally made in most sushi restaurants. You simply take a whole sheet of Nori and youjust fold it in half and then just split and you just use half a sheet of Nori, as suggested,so just this. Now, the reason why this is used in most sushirestaurants is because youre using way less Nori to start with and thats savingcosts. Its quite efficient to roll it, its pretty fast, and it produces a nicesquare roll. Now how to do it. Spreading out Sushi Rice on Nori for Inside-OutSushi Rolls What I am doing here is Im spreading out150-grams of cooked sushi rice or 5-ounces of cooked sushi rice over half a sheet ofNori.Now you simply spread it out, nice and softly, dont overdo it, thats fine,it doesnt have to be perfect, you just want to get a nice spread over it. Later whenyou roll the roll it spreads out the rice more evenly than compressed.Cover the Rice over the Entire Sheet of Nori Rolling Sushi FreehandYou just add the avocado, and well it doesnt matter the filling.So Im adding heresome avocado and salmon, and you simply lift up the back, turn it over the filling keepingwith your other fingers here, and then turning it over and pushing it in like so. Then youjust turn it over like so, and now you firm it up with a bamboo rolling mat.What I like to do is turn it on its side then firm it up again and turn it back to the originalposition and firm it up one more time. Turning it gives it a more uniform finish.Rolling an Inside-Out Sushi Roll with a Bamboo Rolling MatYou want to fully cover the sheet of Nori and now you want to flip it over, you wantto place it on top of your bamboo rolling mat with a plastic bag over it.Now you bringit towards the end here, like so, you leave a little bit of space, and you add your filling.In this case some crab sticks and a little bit of cucumber, this is just to show, andnow you begin the rolling. Just bring up the back of the mat, so youroll it forwards, holding in the filling with your fingers, and then you press in this waytowards yourself, applying pressure on the back and firming it up like a square. Thisgives it the square shape, by holding the sushi mat in the square shape.Now you detach,push it forward over to the next phase and just firm up that square piece. Now you dothe same to make sure the roll is completely done and thats it, now you just apply pressurefrom the sides and pressure on the top. You do this with both hands and using the indexfinger to press down and that creates a square roll.Rolling Towards Yourself or Away From Yourself? Now rolling it, you can roll it either awayfrom yourself or towards yourself, I dont really care as long as you just roll it. Nowmost sushi chefs in the restaurants they roll it away from them, keeping the content ofthe roll in with the fingers and rolling it over with the thumb. Okay now when I startedout I used to like rolling it towards me, and controlling the content with my thumbsand rolling it up forward, this way I could have visual contact with the food as yourerolling it and you could see what was going on to correct it.Now the other way you cantyou have to curve over and look down underneath, its not as practical. I would say for beginnersyou probably want to start rolling towards yourself just to get some confidence and thenwhen you can flip it over turn it around and do it the other way, away from yourself.Tips for Rolling Inside-Out Sushi Rolls Now I would say the best method is with theplastic bag around like so, it does get a little bit strange sometimes but if you justleave a little gap in the corner, so dont completely seal it, that allows some air toflow in and out and then you get the compression, or if you could somehow vacuum seal this soyou just completely have no air inside so that the rolling mat is just tight.This is the best method and if your rice still sticks to the plastic what you want to dois just run this under the tap, cold water, and even though there is no water on the plastic,you can see there are microscopic particles between the plastic and whatever you placeon it, so when the rice comes in contact with it, it actually doesnt stick to it.Thekey to make sushi and not having the rice stick to your hands or anything around youis to have just a little bit of water just before you touch the rice. So either cuttingit, rolling it, or touching it with your hands, even just to grab some rice, you want to alwayshave them slightly damp, not wet, but just a little bit moist.Rolling a Maki Sushi Roll Alright the basics of how to roll a simpleMaki roll is you just take your rice, you spread it out, but you leave a little gapabout 3/4 of an inch long which would be about 1.5 centimeters.
