I love traveling, but I have to admit there are a few things that I worry about when sleeping in a hotel room bed and bedbugs are just one of them.
Bedbugs are small, wingless parasitic insects that feed exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. Humans are the preferred hosts for the two main species (Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus).
Bed bugs can reproduce quickly and are not easy to eliminate and most of them feed when their host is asleep, with a peak time for feeding between midnight and 5:00 am.
While some bites can be seen pretty quickly, some can take up to 2 weeks to be seen.
Truth is, you never know how clean and sanitized the places you are staying are, but by the same token, you can not let this ruin your vacation and take away from your experience.
While bringing your own sheets might be a solution, space and weight tend to be a problem when you are traveling unless you join the smart part of the population that has taken control of their sleeping space when traveling and use a Brave Era travel sheet.
What is Brave Era?
Made with great quality materials and attention to details, these super compact travel sheets are very lightweight and heat up to 9 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it great to use in combination with a sleeping bag or by itself in warmer climates.
Hypoallergenic, machine washable, and easy to bring along on any adventure, these travel sheets are a great way to keep bugs at bay and prevent nasty bites from bedbugs and mosquitoes.
Brave Era’s 100% Mulberry Silk Travel Sheet weighs less than 6 ounces and folds down into a tiny pouch, fitting easily into a small carry-on or backpack.
Once you are back home, all you need to do is throw it right into the washing machine and it will air dry in about an hour. Then fold again and have it ready for your next trip.
Super soft to the touch and very comfortable to sleep in, the Brave Era travel sheet is one of those things that you realize you can’t do without once you have tried it. Since we all live in a “Brave Era” when more and more people want to explore the world, you should have one of these travel blankets with you!
