This Super Cheap Hack Will Make Your Bed Sheets Feel Like A Million Bucks

File this one away, y'all!

The only thing we love more than a good hack is a low-cost hack, and the brilliant minds behind TruTV's Hack My Life series just served as a serious game changer.

An episode revealed an ingenious trick for making cheap, scratchy bed sheets feel like a million bucks. And the best part: it only costs about $3.

Make your own magic happen by throwing your lackluster sheets into the washer with one full cup of baking soda and ½ cup of vinegar and running for one full cycle. It works best if you start the wash on hot and then switch to cold during the rinse cycle. The results are ultra-soft sheets, and getting them won't break your back or your wallet.

The show had six blind testers lie down on two beds to prove the effectiveness of the hack, each dressed in a different set of sheets—one with super fancy sheets and the other outfitted in a cheap set "hacked" with baking soda and vinegar. At the end of the experiment, five out of the six testers admitted they believed that the expensive bed sheets were actually the cheap ones.

You better believe we'll try this out before considering splurging on a new pricey set of sheets!
