ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the serviceability of polyester/cotton sheets in domestic use. The life expectancies of the polyester/ cotton sheets which lay in the range 300-460 cycles, suggest that they could last from six to ten years in domestic use if they were washed weekly and returned to the beds. More damage occurred in laundering than in use on the heds. The discoloration of white sheets made from the polyester/cotton blends would cause users to discard the sheets before they became too weak to be serviceable. This discoloration affects the center of the sheet more than the edges and this makes the effect more pronounced.
