Am looking into changing the sheets. Some bed sheets seem more durable than others also there is the matter of stains. Do lighter or darker seem to hold up better? Which colors are considered more attractive? and Who offers quality sheets?

I like what the Comphy sheets sound like especially with the idea of having a few on hand to sell as I have sold a few other things. I have a few that the elastics are giving out and I want different colors and didn't realize poly cotton blends clean up better than cotton. Now, for the shopping, I have looking online and want to see what it will compare with in stores.

I've used Comphy sheets for over a year now, and love them. Very heavy duty elastics on the fitted sheets. After a year, they still look and feel like when they were new. Guests love them and I'm selling more sets than I ever dreamed of.

Use Comphy sheets and love them - we've even sold a few sets to guests and made some good money on the order.  We have beige for the queen rooms and light green for the kings -- I hate white anything, I'm a color person so my towels, etc. are all colored.  We have no issues with stains not coming out and obviously we can't bleach them.  I've gotten rid of all other sheets now and if you take them right out of the dryer you don't ever have to iron them.

The CostClub sheets are supposedly the same microfibre, from what I have been told. MoH complains that they are tough to pull when they are sheet to sheet. I can't really complain... okay, I can, but I don't have time to complain about minor irritants like that. I just make the bed and go one with life. Smiling

I'm with moh. I can't stand trying to line the sheets up when they are microfiber. Or trying to get the pillow cases on.

In giving these DKNY micro sheets one more season and then they go to the shelter. I won't use them, but the housekeeper doesn't care.

Beige or white or small designs. I find that the wrinkle-free from Targé or Penné do quite well. Those from L' Ands End are expensive but also exceptional in every way... lots of extra fabric to tuck in on the top sheets, feel crisp and come out very well from the dryer. The microfibre from the CostClub are inexpensive, wrinkle-free, wash well and dry quickly but don't have that crisp feeling that some people like.

I hadn't thought about L'ands End! Are they really Cyrs?

I would avoid Laura Ashley, they shrink like crazy and DKNY as they were really cheap, nasty fabric.

Ralph Lauren has good quality sheets. But they have to be ironed.

I like my old penny sheets. I just ran elastic through the sheets. They are so good I am not letting them go.

Try to avoid dark colors, you can't use real bleach and they do show every stain, especially oils.

Look for no iron sheets or you will hate them.

I try to find poly cotton blends as I seem to be able to get them cleaner than 100% cotton.

I have jcp sheets I've had for 7 years. The elastic is giving out but they are clean and soft as new.
