What sizes does the Rowland Earthing Sheet come in?
Is the Rowland Earthing Sheet suitable for king and super king sized beds?
The Rowland Earthing sheet is 90cm x 2.8m and is suitable for single, double, king and super king size beds.
For grounding two people in the same bed, one option is to fit the sheet across the width of the bed. However, we generally recommend fitting the sheet lengthways and having one sheet per person for maximum comfort and increased grounding exposure.

How to use the Rowland Earthing Sheet?
To ground your Earthing Sheet, attach the cord to the connection point on the sheet and insert the plug into a standard UK plug socket. The socket is only used to ground the sheet and it does not use electricity. The socket can therefore be switched off at all times and this will not affect the performance. The Rowland Earthing Sheet simply acts as an extension cord, bringing the Earth's energy inside and allowing you to stay grounded while you sleep.
Does the Rowland Earthing Sheet use electricity?
No. The Rowland Earthing sheet does not run on electricity, nor does it even come into contact with electricity. The sheet is only connected to the Earth point of the socket, which is the top hole of a standard UK plug socket. The other two prongs are plastic and are therefore non-conductive. The socket can therefore be switched off at all times and the sheet will perform the same.
What is the difference between the Organic and Original Earthing Sheet?
Our Organic Earthing sheet is made from 100% certified organic cotton, which makes it slightly higher quality than our original version. Organically grown materials are also better for the environment for a number of reasons, which you are welcome to read about on our website. However, both versions perform exactly the same in terms of achieving the grounding effect and both sheets therefore provide the same benefits.
How does the Rowland Earthing sheet work?
In the UK, a mains earth connection is required by law and is almost universally present. The Earthing sheet comes with a cord which allows you to connect the sheet to the Earth connection of a standard plug socket (this is the top hole of any mains outlet), and it is this that is used to Earth the sheet. The sheet itself is lined with a pure silver thread which makes the material highly conductive and this allows one to be physically Earthed when in contact with the sheet.
It is important to point out that the sheet does not run on electricity, nor does it even come into contact with electricity. The plug is designed only to connect to the earth point of the socket and is not connected to the live electrical ports.
Does plugging the Earthing Sheet into a socket expose you to dirty electricity?
A common misconception about Earthing technology is that when you ground yourself indoors by connecting to a mains plug socket, “dirty electricity” comes through the cord to the Earthing sheet, and through your body. However, this would be impossible as there can be no current on Earthing products connected to a plug socket because they are connected to one Earth point only, and not part of a closed circuit necessary for a current to flow. No “dirty electricity” can flow through the Earthing sheet, and then through the body because you are not part of a closed DC circuit.

Do I need to make bare skin contact with the sheet?
You will still be grounded through clothes/pyjamas if these are made from natural materials such as cotton or wool. However, as long as you have some of your bare skin in contact with the sheet, such as your hands or feet, this will not be a problem and your body will be grounded regardless of the type of clothing.
How long does the sheet last?
As long as the washing and care instructions are followed correctly, the sheet should have no problem lasting up to three years or more. Sweat and natural skin oils can sometimes tarnish the silver over time, reducing the conductivity. However, this can be prevented by washing the sheet regularly, just as you would a normal cotton sheet (once every 1-3 weeks is good!). Washing strips body sweat and natural skin oils from the silver and keeps it conductive.
Is there any possibility that I will be electrocuted?
No, it is important to point out that the Earthing sheet does not run on electricity, nor does it even come into contact with electricity. The plug is designed only to connect to the earth point of the socket and is not connected to the live electrical ports. It simply acts as an extension cord, bringing the Earth's energy inside and allowing you to stay grounded while you sleep.
Can I use the Rowland Earthing Sheet underneath my current bed sheet?
Yes, the Rowland Earthing Sheet can be fitted underneath your current bed sheet and this will work fine as long as the covering bed sheet is made from natural materials such as cotton or wool. For maximum benefit, however, we recommend having the Earthing sheet as a top layer so that you are able to make more direct contact. If it is more comfortable, you can also fit the Earthing sheet width-ways on the bottom half of the bed so that your feet and lower legs are making contact.
Can I use my electric blanket with the Rowland Earthing Sheet?
Yes, an electric blanket works fine with the Rowland Earthing sheet, just make sure the Earthing Sheet goes on top of your electric blanket in order to achieve the full grounding effect.
Can I use the Earthing Sheet either way up?
Yes. Both sides of the Earthing sheet are equally conductive and you can therefore have the sheet either way up.
Why are there 2 holes on the adapter?
The second hole on the adaptor is for grounding multiple sheets from the same plug. You can therefore use either hole to ground the sheet.
How do I know if my sheet is working?
As long as your Earthing sheet is connected to a properly Earthed plug socket, the sheet will be Earthed and you will receive the benefits. In the UK, a mains earth connection is required by law and is almost universally present. If you wish to check the socket in your home to make sure it is correctly wired and the socket has an earth connection, you can do so with a socket tester. These can be purchased relatively cheaply online. You can also check the conductivity of your Earthing sheet with a conductivity tester.
Is the Earthing Sheet safe to use in high EMF environments?
There is some amount of confusion surrounding the topic of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and Earthing. Some people are afraid that their Earthing sheet will attract EMF frequencies like an Antenna. However, this would be impossible because in order for an antenna to work, it cannot be grounded. Whenever you are grounded, your skin effectively produces a ‘faraday cage’ effect and will repel electromagnetic fields (EMFs) coming from the external environment. This effect can be demonstrated with a quick multimeter test measuring body voltage before and after touching the Earthed surface.
It is also not possible for EMFs to be ‘pulled’ or ‘attracted’ as EMFs do not have electric charges. They cannot be attracted to anything. They simply radiate outward to infinity from an emitting source, such as electric wires, appliances, and phone masts. For a more detailed explanation, here is a useful resource from the Official Earthing Institute: http://www.earthinginstitute.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/beware-of-earthing-misinformation-2018.pdf
Can I use an extension lead?
Yes. As long as the socket and the extension both have an Earth connection (the third hole), then you can ground the sheet via an extension lead.
Is there a limit for how much I can use it?
No. The longer you use the sheet, the better the results. You should aim to stay grounded as much as possible each day and night. If you think about it, before shoes and houses came along, humans were grounded most of the time!
I have a pacemaker, is it safe for me to use the Rowland Earthing Sheet?
Yes, the Earthing Sheet is safe for people with pacemakers.
I have started sleeping better using the Rowland Earthing Sheet and I feel warmer, what's happening?
This is your circulation improving. Studies on Earthing show that spending time grounded to the Earth improves blood flow around the body. This is because there is an extra negative charge to the surface of your red blood cells, which in turn stops them from clumping together and becoming sticky or viscous. One byproduct of this is the sensation of feeling warmer, especially in your hands and feet, but also throughout your body.
Why am I getting a pins and needles sensation?
A ‘pins and needles’ like sensation can happen if using an electronic device when it is charging, while being in contact with the sheet, as this completes a circuit in your body. It should be noted that this sensation is not dangerous or a sign that there is a fault with the sheet, it is just a natural occurrence of creating an electrical circuit through your body. However, to prevent this from happening, we recommend not using devices on charge while in contact with the sheet.
How do I wash the Rowland Earthing sheet?
The Earthing sheet is machine washable and comes with washing and care instructions. Sweat and natural skin oils can sometimes oxidise the silver over time, reducing the conductivity. However, this can be prevented by washing the sheet regularly, just as you would a normal cotton sheet (once every 1-3 weeks is good!). Washing strips body sweat and natural skin oils from the silver and keeps it conductive.
With regard to washing detergents, we personally recommend brands such as Bio-D Laundry Liquid (unperfumed version is best) and Dri-Pak Liquid Soap, although there are many other suitable washing detergents out there. Detergents that contain any of the following should be avoided as these can shorten the life span of the Earthing Sheet:
Chlorine based (Sodium hypochlorite, Calcium hypochlorite, etc.)
Peroxide/Oxygen based (Hydrogen peroxide, Sodium percarbonate, Sodium perborate, etc.)
Is it safe for pets?
Yes. Animals naturally want to spend time in contact with the Earth. Many indoor pets share our lifestyle and never make contact with the ground outside. People report that pets indoors are attracted to grounding products. We have written an article on this subject here.
