The burning question*: Do you need a top sheet as well as duvet cover?

This and every Monday, let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. The new year and the working week looms ahead (tomorrow!) and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing questions…

This week: Sleep – it’s such a massive part of our lives that people tend to have very personal preferences about how they achieve it. One change in bedtime habits over this last generation is probably the switch from blankets to duvets. But not everyone can agree on whether you still need a top sheet between yourself and the duvet (presuming you use a duvet cover as well) or not. Do you:

B. Don’t need a top sheet?

Poll Results:

B - You don't need a top sheet (1671)
A - You also need a top sheet between you and the duvet (536)
C - Can't we all just get along? (140)
