#5. Think about how easy or difficult it will be to clean
Bedding can get dirty as quickly as you can say “Oops” (or some other four-letter word). Whether it’s an accident from a baby or one of the kids has spilled something on his or her bed, easy-to-clean bedding will make everybody’s life easier. And, unless you’re looking to say goodbye to your own sanity, stay away from bedding that is dry-clean only.
