It's hard to pass up a great deal.  However those bedsheets you got on sale leave a lot to be determined in the comfort department.  They feel like sandpaper on your body.  Fortunately there's a pretty simple hack that can transform those harsh bedsheets into softness. Simply throw your stiff sheets into the washer, along with one full cup of baking soda and ½ cup of vinegar, and run for one full cycle. Start the cycle with hot water and switch to cold during the rinse cycle to magically transform those scratch sheets silky soft. This removes the chemical coat that make sheets scratchy, which is why you don't want to add detergent and/or fabric softener which can make those chemicals harder to remove. An added bonus is if you can let your bedsheets dry outside on a clothesline can also aid in softening the fibers.
