I have no idea how to spell it, so I spelled it phonetically. You know those doovey cover thingies, those things you cover a down comforter with, that can be washed? Well, we finally washed the new sheet set today. The one I ordered that was on a crazy sale, that had no customer reviews. Yeah. Red flag. No customer reviews. I took a gamble, and may have lost big. I won’t know until I go to bed.
When I took the sheets out of the package, they felt so nice. When we washed them today, they didn’t feel so nice. They feel rough and really wrinkled. I got the fitted sheet and flat sheet on the bed, not caring for how they felt. Then, how to tackle the doovey thingy.
So the cover is like a gigantic pillow case. Picture a queen sized feather pillow going into a queen sized pillow case. First I had to figure out which way the comforter went on and I was having troubles telling. So B came in and said it looked right, and then started helping me put the thing on. All the while, the cats are going nuts, running on the bed, attacking the comforter. I had closed the door while putting on the other sheets, (Spinelli did not like this, and clawed and clawed and clawed at the door) but got really hot and had to come out and put on the a/c so they were able to run in.
B: Ok, this is a pain.
B: Did you know what you were getting into when you bought this?
Me: Well, I kinda knew the theory behind it.
Ugh. I did wonder how the heck you put these covers on. We ended up pushing the bottom in and then pulling it up. Then there are these buttons. The way it’s positioned, you kinda button the button backwards so it gets hidden in a flap. B ended up not buttoning in the right holes, so I got them all lined up and buttoned properly and then tried to get the comforter to spread out inside the cover. I think we got it going the wrong direction. It doesn’t feel right. But I just kinda smoothed it on the bed anyway haha!
I’m rather dreading going to bed. The old sheets were washed recently, so I folded them up and put them back in the zipper bags the new set came in, in case I have to put them back on. Those sheets are from a Wal-Mart bed-in-a-bag I bought when we first moved in here, and I love the sheets. I sure hope I didn’t waste money on this set. It might be that there was just too much material in the washer, so I’m not gonna give up on them until I have the chance to wash them again. Who knows, it might all work out just fine, but my Wal-Mart sheets were oh so soft, and these just aren’t. They feel like a softer potato sack hahah! Might be changing sheets at 10pm 😉
