So you don’t actually have the ones they’re selling on Morningsave? Because I bought some flannel sheets from Overstock last year that are really pretty, but the first time I washed them they pilled like crazy.
Oh c’mon! These comments show me how unappreciative Meh customers truly are. I’ve paid much more for decent tarps to cover furniture and floors when I’m painting a room. Granted, those tarps are probably much more comfortable than these…
@Chickenbox@werehatrack The nonpolar plastic fibers won’t wick sweat away from your body fast enough to keep you comfortable, so it seems like they might work as effective drop-cloths for water based paints. Alas, they will let just enough paint through to destroy a couch if the paint splatters have more than a minute or two to soak through. Obviously, an oil based paint will zoom through the sheets effortlessly.
@hamjudo@werehatrack Fair enough, but they’re certainly adequate enough to cover my bushes when I paint my house and the pillow cases are perfect for small shrubs and flower pots. Always look on the bright side is what I say, unless I slept a night wrapped in these sheets and my sweat. Then I’d be pretty cranky. OTOH, these sheets might prove to be just enough of a deterrent to keep me from waking up next to my lab every morning – unless the wife and I ended up crawling into his bed which is flannel.
I was going to buy two sets, but the colors I want aren’t available… I was going to get B*&%#y and buy them somewhere else. Now I’m not buying them anywhere. I’ll wait until next time for better available colors.
@whogots for some reason I saw the term deplorable instead of dependable. Not sure why that was in my head. Now I think it’s because I saw the Hillary Clinton giphy a few posts above. Reminded me of the notorious “basket of deplorables” comment. Not that it was incorrect…
@rob55431 Umm, yes, microfiber is polyester. Every time that Meh lists another set of microfiber sheets, there are howls of indignation over here in the forum. I don’t think that any sheets sold here have been cotton for the couple of years that I’ve been hanging out on the forums, and probably longer. We also get annoyed by the “bamboo” sheets that are actually rayon, usually disguised behind the term “viscose”.
