On Season 12 of Shark Tank, entrepreneur Wen Muenyi from St. Paul, Minnesota pitches his innovative self-cleaning bedding brand Jax Sheets. They’re designed so a person can sleep comfortably all year round without having to change the sheets.
Bamboo and silver are the two main “ingredients” in Jax Sheets. Note: Silver “is naturally oligodynamic, which means that it can neutralize bacteria and stop its growth.”
According to its Kickstarter campaign, Jax Sheets are “engineered for men” based on a study that revealed “men generally sweat more than their female counterparts.” (But don’t try telling that to a menopausal woman with night sweats!) And another study revealed that men ages 18-25 wash their sheets only four times in a year.
