Benefits of our New Under Sheet 100% Silver Earthing Pads:
- Can still use your favourite/luxury sheets
- Less wear and tear due to less washing and maintenance
- No damage to Silver thread from heavy sweaters and or the use of body oils and creams
- No direct skin contact needed.
Note: After a short time of laying on the pad, the natural moisture from your skin will allow the conductive flow of electrons through fabric and this will still effectively pass on the Earthing benefits from the Earthing Sleep Pad to you. (Please note if you are used to sleeping on an Earthing sheet for quick pain relief this method may take a little longer due to the need of a build up of a layer of moisture on the skin.)
Step 1: Check Your Outlets Are Earthed with our Socket Tester:
In order to use your Earthing products through an electrical outlet, you must connect it to the “earth port” of an earthed 3 prong outlet. Before plugging in your Earthing product, check that the outlet is earthed by plugging in the Socket Tester. Three orange lights illuminated is GOOD and means that you have a proper earth and you are ready to connect your Earthing product. Any other light combination means your outlet is NOT properly earthed. Try testing another outlet. If it still doesn’t work, then you will need to use a grounding rod in the optional step 2 below.
Please Note: In Australia it is compulsory by law to have all electrical power outlets Earthed, however, if in doubt for any reason it is easy to check with our socket tester which are inclusive in all our Starter Packs, otherwise you can purchase individually – please click here to order.
Step 2: (Optional) Using The Ground Rod When Outlets Aren't Earthed:
a. First Push the Ground Rod directly into the earth around 20cm to 25cm, close to the foundation of the building and where vegetation is growing or the area is damp.
b. Run the cord from the Ground Rod, under or around a window or door, near where you will be using your product.
c. Make sure to cover the cord to prevent tripping.
d. Plug the prong end of your cord into the receptacle end of the Ground Rod cord. If you live in a dry area, such as a desert, soak the earth around the Ground Rod from time to time for maximum conductivity.
Step 3: Setting Up The Silver Pad:
a.The Earthing silver plush pad is quite portable and can be used in a variety of locations. Just remember that only one side of the plush pad is conductive and not the other. Only the Silver side of the pad is conductive. The pad can be used under a bedsheet or on top of for direct skin contact. Both methods will work.
b. Insert one end of the Earthing cord into the grey adapter plug supplied, then into a properly earthed wall outlet or if using a Ground Rod, connect to cord of an Earthing ground rod placed in the Earth outside.
c. Find the connecting black tab on the sheet and snap other end of Earthing cord onto the tab.
d. When you lie down on the connected sheet, any bare skin contact will transfer the Earth’s energy to your body once you connect the sheet.
Please Note: Due to the nature of silver, our 99% pure silver products will discolour with use. It’s normal to have fading or discolouration spots after use and washing. This is the inherent nature of silver. The product will still function exactly the same.
Step 4: Setting Up Your Earthing Mat
a. Attach snap end of Earthing cord to silver snap stud on mat. This is the conductive side where you put your feet or hands.
2. Insert prong end of Earthing cord into the supplied grey adapter plug and then insert plug into an earthed power outlet, or into Earthing ground rod cord if you use a ground rod connection.
Step 5: How To Test For Conductivity With The Product Continuity Tester:
The purpose of the tester is to verify that your Earthing sheet is conductive
a. Firstly verify that the Product Tester itself is operational by pressing button that says “press” and release—the small light on front will flash green one time then goes off. Indicates tester is good. If no green light battery (Lithium CR2032) may be flat or unit faulty.
b. Snap Coil Cord included onto Product Tester’s metal press stud, if not already assembled.
c. Insert your grey Earthing Adapter Plug into the power outlet you intend to use with your product.
d. Insert prong end of Product Tester Cord into one receptacle of the adapter plug or if using a Ground Rod, attach a splitter to end of ground rod cord and insert into one of the receptacles.
e. Plug Earthing cord from pad into the other receptacle. You should now have both the Earthing sheet and Tester connected to the plug that is in a power outlet. Repeat for Earthing Mat.
f. Place product tester flat on the pad.or mat. The round metal plate must be in contact with surface of the sheet. Press firmly on the sheet to obtain a good contact and press down on the "Press" button. A green light means that sheet is in working order. In unlikely case that no green light comes on, the sheet may be defective or has lost conductivity and should be replaced – you should also check your connecting cords to make sure they are conductive as well (see below).
Sometimes, people have difficulty testing their sheets. If the light doesn’t come on, place one hand on the sheet while holding the tester in the other hand and with one finger on the silver button on back of tester. A green light would show that the body is grounded when touching the sheet. Make sure that both the tester and the sheet are plugged in to the earth, as described above. The reason for perhaps the light not going on: you aren't pressing hard enough on the tester. The surface fabric of the sheet sometimes prevents the button from contacting the conductive silver fibres of the sheet. The surface seems smooth, but if you were to look at it with a microscope you would see "hills and valleys." The pliant surface of the skin, unlike the hard metal button, will bend around fibres and make good contact. You can also put some moisture on your finger tips to create a better contact.
g. Disconnect product tester from the adapter plug or ground rod. However, it is fine to leave plugged in to test when needed later on
h. You don’t have to test your sheet often. Perhaps after cleaning. The more you use the tester, the sooner the batteries in the tester will expire, replace battery (Lithium CR2032 by unscrewing the back panel.
Test Your Product Cords For Conductivity:
- Replace the coil cord already on the product tester with the cord to be tested.
- Touch the metal pin of the testing cord to the back of the metal disk on the tester
- Hold down and press the “Press” button for at least 3 seconds.
- A green light indicates that the cord is in good working order.
Step 6: How To Wash and Care For Your Earthing Sheet
It is good to wash your Earthing sheet. It will not be harmed by washing, in fact it is beneficial. Washing in warm water strips body sweat and natural skin oils from the silver keeping it conductive.
- Wash a minimum of 2x per month or weekly*
- Wash in a washing machine, with a mild detergent such as Earth Choice “standard”
- Wash with warm water, approximately 40-60 degrees Celsius (105 Fahrenheit)
- Dry in a dryer on low or line dry
- Iron on low heat – only if needed
- Don’t wash with bleach or fabric softeners
- Don’t use whitening detergents (including lemons), oxi-detergents OR detergents with oils like lavender, coconut oil or eucalyptus oil.
- Don’t use dryer sheet fabric softeners or wool washes
- Don't apply lotions, medical creams or body oils before bed.
Bleach, body lotions and oils can tarnish the silver thread rendering it non-conductive. Fabric softener builds up on the silver and also ruins its conductive properties. Whiteners and bleaches will ruin the silver quickly and render them non-conductive.
It is advised to wait one hour to use the product after applying lotion to the skin and to make sure the lotions have been absorbed by the skin

Amazing Slept Better ImmediatelyBy: Lisa on 8 August 2017I was referred to get Earthing products from a Medical Practitioner and was not sure what to expect, however, from the first night I noticed that my sleeping improved. Previously I would wake up and not be able to get back to sleep and now if I wake I just stir and get back to sleep straight away. I am really pleasantly surprised that this is working for me.
