Do I Really Need Pillow Covers? October 22, 2018

Do I Really Need Pillow Covers?, Mason, Ohio

If you regularly get a healthy night’s sleep, you’ll spend a third of your life in bed. Keeping quality bed linens is essential to your comfort and health, but nowhere is this more crucial than on pillows. Most people use pillowcases but covers, or protectors, act like pillowcases but provide an added barrier between you and your pillow. Unlike cases, covers block all kinds of outside substances from contaminating your pillow. Below are some reasons you’ll benefit from investing in these products. 

The Top Benefits of Pillow Covers

1. Promote Cleanliness 

As you get ready for bed every night, you may not wash off your lotions, face creams, or hair products. These substances, along with the natural sweat and saliva, will rub into your pillows through the pillowcases and make it increasingly unhygienic. But when you have pillow covers, they will block all these substances and keep the bed fresh and clean.

2. Block Allergens

Dust mites are microscopic insects that live everywhere, including your bed linens. Many people have varying levels of allergies to these creatures ranging from mild respiratory reactions to asthma attacks. But with a quality pillow cover you can prevent dust mite infestation of your pillows. Get a better night’s sleep when you can breathe fresh and clean air.

3. Prevent Bedbugs

Bedbugs are another home invader that feeds off of dead skin cells in your bedding. Cut their food supply by easily keeping your pillows clean with covers.

4. Maintain Fluffiness

PillowThat lotion and sweat that can rub into your pillows will weigh it down over time. Eventually, even the downiest pillows can lose their billowy cushion because of this. Again, when you block those substances with a pillow cover, this won’t be an issue.

5. Travel Safe

Have you ever stayed in accommodations that felt a little bit less than clean? Instead of planting your face in pillows that might not be quite hygienic, bring your own travel pillow cover with you to maintain peace of mind.
