Cotton home textiles first choice for 96% women - Report
Jan '11
Though 100% cotton sheets and towels are mainstays in many homes, cotton also plays a surprising role in other products we use every day.

As the winter white sales get under way, cotton remains a key purchase driver; 96% of women say they have purchased cotton home textile products before, according to the Cotton Incorporated Home Textiles Survey.

"Cotton is a great choice for home textiles because it's comfortable and natural," says Jenna Caccavo, Product Trend Analyst, Cotton Incorporated. "Whether you're looking for bedding for your family, or prefer re-usable fabrics in the kitchen and bathroom, cotton makes sense throughout the home."

The bathroom tends to be the most cotton-centric room in the house; almost 8 out of 10 women say they prefer cotton towels, according to the Home Textiles Survey. Since cotton is a breathable fiber, it also makes a great choice for shower curtains.

"Consumers look to cotton for typical bath products like towels and swabs, but what they might not realize is that cotton cellulose is also found in some surprising things we use every day, like shampoo, nail polish, toothpaste, and even some LCD television screens," Caccavo says.

In the bedroom, cotton is ideal for sheets, pillowcases, bedspreads, and even curtains. Look for 100% cotton on the labels to ensure that you're getting a comfortable, durable, and easy-care product.
