My pillowcase is white, for reasons listed in order of importance:
1) JCPenney was selling individual white satin pillowcases for $5.99, which felt reasonable. Were I richer, I’d want these
2) I’ve been using/slathering a benzoyl peroxide treatment on my acne, and it bleaches the dickens out of colored linens
3) I was long overdue for a Moody Blues reference:
One of the first CDs I ever bought was this Moody Blues album, and I still like it heaps.
Was the satin pillowcase a sound investment, you ask?
While I haven’t decided if it’s helping my curly hair, the pillowcase hides the nightly peroxide smears beautifully, and sleeping against satin feels extravagant. White satin is a tad bridal, but hey; I sleep with my eyes closed.
Have you ever tried a silk or satin pillowcase? What did you think?
