Frequently Asked Questions

How is SilverGuard bed linen different from conventional bed linen?

Our bed linen is made using a blend of Supima® and IONIC+ silver thread. The IONIC+ silver thread is weaved through the Supima® cotton which prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi and other pathogens. 

Why is this important? Your body can shed on average around 15 million skin cells in one night, while it has also been estimated that a person naturally produced over 95 litres of sweat in bed every year. This means that your bed linens can become a breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria. The IONIC+ silver thread technology works to prevent the growth of bacteria, making your bed environment a safer and cleaner place in between laundering.

The same technology also acts to be kind on your skin. Your bed linen comes into contact with your skin for around eight hours a day. Studies have found unwashed pillowcases and sheets had several thousand times more bacteria than a toilet seat. As such, traditional fabrics collect bacteria, only to transfer back onto your skin causing acne-prone skin to break out. SilverGuard bed linens allow for healthier skin by tackling acne, redness, and skin irritations as the silver thread technology eliminate acne-causing bacteria working to reduce breakouts on the skin.

Is SilverGuard bed linen safe?

SilverGuard’s IONIC+ antimicrobial silver thread technology has been clinically proven to reduce 99% of bacteria and viruses. Our antimicrobial silver is just pure silver, which means it is not a topical coating, nor do we use nanotechnology. Our products are perfectly safe for your skin, children and pets.

What is the thread count of SilverGuard bed linen?

Thread count measures the number of horizontal threads and vertical threads in a square inch of cotton. All SilverGuard bed linen is single-ply and has a thread count of 300.

Higher thread counts have been associated with higher quality but this is not always the case. Wrapping a thread around itself to create a multi-ply yarn can give bedding fabric a thread count of 600 or more. However, a single-ply fabric, such as SilverGuard’s, can create softer, longer lasting and more breathable cotton bed sheets compared to multi-ply threads. Generally, 200 thread count sheets or more are used to make luxury bedding. Other factors such as the quality of the cotton and weave used in the fabric have a greater influence on the resultant quality.

How do I care for SilverGuard bed linen?

SilverGuard bed linen, like traditional bed linen, can be washed at temperatures of up to 40°C, and 60°C for white bedding. White bedding should be washed separately or with other white items to avoid subtle discolouration over time. Avoid the use of fabric softeners and bleach. If tumble drying bed linen, use low heat to preserve your bed linens’ softness. SilverGuard bed linen can be laundered over 100 times.

All our bedding products are made using soft, dense and absorbent Supima® cotton for its premium quality and plush feel. The longer yarn length of Supima cotton ensures smoother surfaces that make for softer fabrics which are also resistant to pilling. Although Supima® is a luxurious type of bed linen, you can still wash normally and use them without worry. The bedding will continue to maintain its soft feel after repeated washing.

How often should I wash SilverGuard bed linen?

It is generally recommended that you should wash your bed linen weekly. SilverGuard towels are woven with IONIC+ silver thread which gives the product antimicrobial properties, acting against bacteria. SilverGuard IONIC+ silver thread technology also eliminates odour-producing bacteria which means you can enjoy fresher smelling sheets for longer.

What colours and sizes does SilverGuard bed linen come in?

The range comes in white and includes fitted and flat sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases and cot sheets to fit beds in the following sizes: single, double, King and Super King.

Our fitted sheets have been made to fit even the deepest mattresses up to 36cm deep and with a wider elastic delivering extra grip so the sheets stay put. This also means a snug fit for shallower mattresses.

At present, our bed linen range comes in one colour – white. We are looking to add more colours to the range soon, as well as introducing other bedding products.

Is SilverGuard bed linen good for keeping cool in the Summer?

Cotton and linen bedding is recommended for keeping cool and fresh in hot weather. Cotton is soft, lightweight and breathable.

With SilverGuard bed linen being single-ply Supima®, this means that airflow and breathability is maintained throughout the fabric. This is further enhanced by the thermoregulating silver in our bed linen products which allows for sleep at the ideal temperature, every night, all year round. This is especially beneficial to anyone who tends to sweat at night or wake up continuously from becoming too warm.

What testing and certification does SilverGuard bed linen have?

SilverGuard’s IONIC+ antimicrobial silver thread technology has been clinically proven to reduce 99% of bacteria and viruses.

Our bed linen products are made from Supima® cotton and have also received Standard 100 Oeko-Tex certification, which certifies that it supports human ecology through biocompatibility and absence of harmful substances in the manufacturing process.
