Nocturnal and nearly impossible to kill, these demons emerge from the shadows with one goal in mind: they want to drink your blood.
No, they’re not vampires – they’re bed bugs. Bed bugs are almost worse than vampires for a few reasons.
Since bed bug infestations are hard to eradicate, the best approach is prevention. So, how do you protect your home from these little devils? Crosses and holy water obviously won’t work. To answer that question, here are 3 quick and easy tips from Cozy Earth on how to prevent bed bugs from infesting your home.
Most people bring bed bugs home after a trip. To prevent bringing these pests home with you, inspect your hotel room upon arrival. Take a flashlight and carefully scan the bed frame, box spring, and mattress. You’ll most likely find these small, flat, red bugs in etchings on the bed frame or in the cracks of the sideboards.
If you discover that your hotel room has bed bugs, notify the hotel immediately and request a different room. When you arrive back home, don’t put your suitcase on your bed to unpack. In fact, don’t carry it into the house at all. Keep it in the garage while you grab a garbage bag to put it in. Take out all your clothes and immediately wash them in hot water. Finally, toss some no-pest strips into the garbage bag with your suitcase and seal it up. Let the strips fumigate your suitcase for at least two weeks before bringing it into the house.
While some of these steps seem extreme, taking fifteen minutes to inspect your hotel room and properly disinfecting your suitcase will save you months of battling a full-blown infestation.
Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs don’t just infest filthy homes. They can live in homes that are spotless by hiding in the cracks of furniture and even behind baseboards. However, keeping your floors clear and clutter-free will give them far fewer places to hide.
Also, make your bed and make sure your bed skirt doesn’t touch the floor. By keeping fabrics from trailing onto the floor, you prevent bed bugs from using your bedding as a ladder to climb up into your bed. That only leaves the bed posts as access points, which you can protect by placing bed bug traps around them.
The last tip on our list is to buy bamboo sheets. This tip is a little surprising, we know. How will bamboo sheets prevent bed bugs anyway?
Well, the natural enzymes in bamboo naturally repel bed bugs, discouraging them from climbing into bed with you. Additionally, bamboo doesn’t have sticky microcosms like cotton and polyester (Bed bugs love to reproduce in the microcosms of cotton and polyester sheets). By turning your bed into an inhospitable environment form these tiny terrors, this organic bedding significantly reduces the chances of a bed bug outbreak.

Do you toss and turn all night, repeatedly waking you to kick the covers off to cool down only to wake up a few hours later shivering? If so, then bamboo bed sheets and an organic comforter may be the answer for you.
Bamboo bedding helps you to have a better night’s sleep because it prevents you from overheating. If you don’t overheat, you don’t wake up to throw your comforter off and your sleep isn’t interrupted. By having uninterrupted sleep, you are able to sleep deeper and have better quality sleep.
So, why do you overheat in the first place and how does bamboo bedding help?
Well, as you know, your body always generates heat. If you’re sleeping under traditional cotton bedding, all that heat becomes trapped in the bed with you. Soon, you start sweating to try and cool down. However, your sweat also becomes trapped under the covers with you. Since it can never evaporate, it actually reflects even more of your body heat back towards you. Eventually, you overheat and your body jerks you awake to kick those unbearable blankets across the room.
However, bamboo and silk are exceptionally breathable and efficiently vent any excess heat and moisture away from your bed. In fact, these organic fabrics wick moisture away twice as fast as cotton, reducing the humidity in your bed by an amazing 50%! Since bamboo and silk allow your sweat to evaporate like it’s supposed to, your body is able to cool down when it needs to. As a result, you’re able to stay at the perfect temperature and sleep through the night.
So, are you ready to finally get a good night’s rest and wake up refreshed, ready to take on the day? Then browse our wide selection of organic sheets, blankets, and comforters at cozyearth.com.
We are so confident that you’ll love sleeping under our organic bamboo bedding that we offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee – If you don’t absolutely love your new bamboo bedding, just send it back for a full refund.
With a guarantee like that, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and try Cozy Earth bamboo bed sheets and an organic comforter today!
Recently, actress Catherine Bell named Cozy Earth as her favorite sheets in her blog “Cozy”est Bed Ever! We are honored by her praise and wanted to take a closer look at exactly why she loves our bamboo sheets and silk comforter so much.
If we take a closer look at her blog, Catherine Bell explained:
“I have been in need of a new bed makeover top to bottom. I had the same soft familiar sheets and duvet forever but I found myself constantly shifting from being too hot or too cold and always grabbing or throwing blankets and sheets on and off of me to get comfortable. And then in addition the sheets were starting to get torn and finally got to the point where my child almost got her head caught around one of the holes. Need I say more?”
In short, there were two complaints that had about her old bedding:
So, how does Cozy Earth’s organic bedding address these concerns?
The first issue of traditional bedding is that you are never at the right temperature. You’re either swelteringly hot, trapped inside the sauna of your bed, or you’re shivering in the chill night air.
The reason that you are never comfortable under traditional bedding is because it is usually made from cotton, polyester, or a blend of the two. Unfortunately, cotton and polyester trap too much moisture under the covers with you, which increases the humidity in your bed. As we all know, humidity aggravates extreme temperatures and makes it feel even hotter or colder than it really is.
However, Cozy Earth bamboo sheets and silk comforters don’t have that problem. Bamboo and silk naturally keep you at the perfect temperature because both are surprisingly breathable fabrics. As a matter of fact, bamboo and silk wick moisture away twice as fast as cotton and reduce the humidity in your bed by 50%.

In addition to always keeping you at the perfect temperature, Cozy Earth’s organic bedding will never pill or tear under normal use. So, what makes our bedding so durable?
The short answer is that our bedding is made using a proprietary blend and weave. We only use 100% premium bamboo and the highest quality silk to make our sheets and comforters. This means that the fibers in our bedding are stronger and less likely to break apart than their cheap counterparts.
Moreover, by using premium bamboo and silk, we ensure that we only use long-strand fibers. These long strand fibers reach across the entire length of the sheet or comforter, which is extremely important for the weaving process.
In traditional weaving, the ends of short strand fibers are overlapped to create the illusion of one long thread. Yet, over time, the thread ends work themselves out of the fabric, causing the sheet or comforter to “pill.”
Since Cozy Earth’s bedding only uses long-strand fibers, the thread ends are securely anchored along the edges of the fabric. As a result, we completely avoid the problem of pilling and tearing. In fact, Cozy Earth bamboo sheets and silk comforters can last up to 15 years with proper care.
In summary, Cozy Earth bedding is temperature regulating and more durable than any other type of bedding on the market today. We know that you’ll love our bedding just as much as Catherine Bell does that we offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee with every purchase.

Valentine’s Day is pretty easy for the guy. All they have to do is go with one of the three standbys: flowers, chocolate, or jewelry. Yet, what should you buy him for Valentine’s Day? Obviously, those standbys aren’t going to work, so what are you supposed to do?
The trick to buying your husband or boyfriend the perfect present is to keep it simple. Don’t overthink it. Just stick to the basics. For example, here are 3 fantastic gift ideas that your loved one is sure to love.
To begin with, all men thrive on competition. Whether it’s at work, on the sports field, or during a chess tournament, they want to be the best. That’s why your boyfriend prefers to jump on his game console over snuggling on the couch after a long day at work. It’s not that he doesn’t love you and want to spend time with you – it’s just that he needs to feel that sense of victory after being beaten down by his boss all day.
So instead of fighting for his attention, join him! Give him that game he’s been dying for and spend the afternoon playing with him. You don’t have to turn into a gamer, but playing with him every once in a while will let him know that you want him to relax and have fun.
If you’re worried about buying him a game he already has, pre-order one of the amazing games that are coming out this year. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Wii U) and For Honor (PS4, PC, and Xbox One) are two of the most anticipated games for 2017.
There’s a reason why the saying “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” is so prevalent – it’s true! Men associate home cooked meals with being loved and cared for, so cooking for your husband or boyfriend is the perfect way to show him you care.
If you really want to make a special meal for him, call his mom. She can give you the exact recipe for his favorite meal or comfort food. Since it’s a recipe he’s familiar with, his taste buds are sure to love it and he’ll appreciate the extra effort you made to make him happy.
However, if you’re too nervous to call his mother for whatever reason, here are three delicious and easy recipes for you try this Valentine’s Day.
You were probably a little surprised when you saw this last gift idea, but sometimes the best present you can give is to take care of your man. Men often only think about the necessities and not about making their lives more comfortable. That’s where you come in.
For instance, your boyfriend probably bought the cheapest set of sheets he could find when he first moved into his apartment and hasn’t thought about buying bedding since. If so, his sheets are worn-out, holy, and more than a little faded. By giving him high-quality, organic sheets, you’re giving him a gift that will last for years and help him sleep better at night.
Now, I wouldn’t go out and buy him that super cute duvet cover that you think would just completely transform his décor (or lack thereof). Instead, stick to bamboo sheets or a silk pillow. Bamboo bed sheets will keep him from overheating at night and a silk pillow will provide better neck support than the flat cotton pillow he’s currently sleeping on.
While giving him something practical isn’t the most romantic present, it does show that you care. Plus, it provides the perfect opportunity to transition the night into the bedroom, which is what your guy really wants anyway.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking of what to give the wonderful woman in your life. Yet, Valentine’s gifts can be tricky. It’s hard to come up with the perfect present that shows her how much you love her.
To help you gentlemen out, here are 5 creative gift ideas that are sure to sweeten your sweetheart’s day.
Are you looking to get cozy with your loved one this Valentine’s? Then give your lucky lady a beautiful set of bamboo bedding! Whether it’s a bamboo blanket, bed sheets, or a comforter, she’ll feel like a goddess when she sleeps under the soft, silky texture of bamboo.
Moreover, if you buy your bamboo bedding from Cozy Earth, you don’t need to worry about finding the right pattern or design to go with your wife or girlfriend’s decorating taste. All of Cozy Earth’s bedding comes in a crisp, clean white that will never gray or yellow and will go with everything!
However, if you know she wants a bed set with a little bit of color, bamboo bedding is still a fantastic present. You just need to break your Valentine’s Day gift into two parts. First, you give her the luxurious, high quality bedding that she always wanted, but never been able to justify buying for herself (especially if you have kids). Then, you offer to take her shopping for the duvet cover of her choice. She gets to pick out the design she really wants and you get to give the perfect present – it’s a win-win for everyone!
In addition to a good night’s sleep in a luxurious bed, what a woman really wants is some time to relax. After all, she works, cooks, cleans, and takes care of the kids – when does she have time to slow down and take care of herself? Consequently, one of the best gifts you can give her is to book her some time off and send her to the spa. While this present is a tad cliché, it’s cliché for a reason.
So, which spa should you send her to? One option is Massage Envy. They were ranked as America’s #1 spa franchise in 2017 and they have locations in all 50 states. Additionally, their prices are relatively cheap while still receiving good reviews.

After all, how could she not think of you as her Mr. Darcy or prince charming after giving her one of these gorgeous books?
If books aren’t really her thing, every girl loves flowers. Yet, flowers aren’t really a surprise on Valentine’s Day. So, how do you take your darling’s breath away with this traditional gift? By giving her a membership to the Flower of the Month Club!
When your sweetheart is a member of the Flowers of the Club, Amazing Clubs sends her a gorgeous bouquet of exotic, in-season flowers every month. As each new bouquet arrives, you’ll show your girlfriend or wife that you love them not just on Valentine’s Day, but every day of the year.
All of our suggestions so far have been rather grand gestures, so let’s end with a present that’s more light-hearted. What’s a quirky gift to start your Valentine’s Day festivities on a fun note and bring a smile to your girl’s face?
Try giving your girlfriend a coffee mug with the message “You’re So Lucky to Have Me” inscribed on it! Imagine her surprise and laughter when she gets her morning jolt. You can make this gift yourself or buy it from etsy.com.
