There's something about a bed wrapped in crisp white linens that not only makes your bedroom look clean, simple, and elegant, but also makes your space feel automatically cozy and inviting. Plus, it's the perfect blank foundation for endless throw pillow and quilt combinations. But, the hang-up of investing in white bedding is, of course, that it will show every single stain — ugh. Well, that shouldn't stop you from having the white bedding of your dreams, especially when sheets and duvets can be cleaned so easily by tossing them in the washer.
