You may have seen a mattress or pillow protector without knowing what it is used for or you have heard of it and wondered why you should get one. As the Bedding Company that cares, we whipped this up so you can understand what it is about.why you should use mattress and pillow protectors Click To Tweet
So this is what a protector does;
General protection for your mattress and pillow
This includes protection from dust mites, stains, and especially moisture- as the moisture is what attracts dust mites and lead to stains. This moisture could be the one your body loses during sleep, or that little spill on the bed when you decide to spoil yourself and have breakfast in bed. When you think about it in short term, it would seem as though it does not matter but steady deposits of such moisture can build up to a point where harmful microbes will be in surplus with a funny scent from the mattress and yellowing of pillows. However, with protectors you can be assured such moisture does not build up as you can easily pull it off and launder from time to time.
Extends the lifespan of your pillow and mattress
At least from the first point, you can understand how protectors work to elongate your use of pillows and mattress. Unprotected pillows are a potential breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites. With time, this gives the pillows a strange kind of weight and a new color – Yellow. However, with reduced contact with bacteria, your mattress and pillows will last longer.
Contributes to reduced acne breakouts
Surprised? This is how it works. Acne usually results from oily pillowcases. You put your face so much on these pillow cases without regularly cleaning them and they keep breaking out. Now, if you improve your cleaning routine and wash your pillow cases frequently (and not buy a new pillow), the oil that the pillow has absorbed over a time can still seep up to that pillow case and the cycle continues. Getting a pillow protector (and sometimes a new pillow) can reduce all that. You will notice that the protector serves as a barrier for oil to pass through it on to your pillow case.
