Product Discussion: Mattress and Pillow Protectors

April 19, 2016


Everything you need to know about mattress and pillow protectors

Mattress and pillow protectors are as vital to a good night’s sleep as bedding.  These two items are often overlooked when buying bedding, and for the most part this is a great mistake. The first thing to clarify is exactly what they are, and why they are needed.

Both mattress and pillow protectors are removable items of bedding that are put on the mattress and pillows and act as a barrier between these and your linen. Most people wash their linen fairly regularly but very few wash pillows and it is almost impossible to wash a mattress, so while your linen may be clean there are all manner of things that collect in your mattress and in your pillows over time. Using a mattress cover and pillow protectors and washing them often you are protecting your bed, pillows and yourself.

Pillow Protectors

Pillow protectors guard against dirt, bed bugs, mites, mould, sweat and other contaminants. They are designed to keep what’s in the pillow in there, and to keep dirt out. They assist with allergies and asthma and keep your pillows clean and will ensure they last longer. One of the best products on the market is the Premium Pillow Protector from Protect-a-Bed. Cool, breathable, 100% cotton, machine washable and with a miracle membrane that is waterproof the Premium Pillow Protector offers the following:

· Hygienic protection against sweating and drooling

· Anti-allergenic, it keeps the dust mites in and the allergies at bay

· 5 year guarantee

Mattress Protectors

A mattress cover lies between the mattress and the sheet and acts as protection. The idea of a mattress cover is to safeguard against bed bugs, dust mites, pollen and mould. It stops the sheet from slipping and moving around – all too often mattresses are made of fabric with a sheen which can cause the sheet to move around on the bed. They are also designed to protect against liquid spills and other stains. Designed like a fitted sheet, the mattress protector adds years on to your mattress by keeping it clean, hygienic and good as new.
