I always assumed that pillows were pretty straight forward. Step one, buy a quality, supportive pillow. Step two, regularly wash my pillowcase to keep it fresh and clean. Sound familiar? As it turns out, the vast majority of us are missing a key component to healthy sleep; step three - the pillow protector.
Let’s chat the facts. People sweat every night as they sleep. In fact, between perspiration and drool, the average adult loses up to one liter of liquids per night. Perspiration and saliva hold bacteria, both of which can breed mold, and fungus in your pillow. Pillowcases alone, regardless of how often you launder them, cannot prevent this issue.
But liquids aren’t the only part of the unprotected pillow problem. Our bodies are constantly shedding skin cells that collect in our clothing and bedding, creating a breeding ground for dust mites and other allergens. Without the defensive shield of a pillow protector, skin cells settle deep within our pillows, attracting unwanted pests and invisible allergens. Again, your clean pillowcase is powerless to prevent it.
In all candor, the only way to keep your perfect pillow clean is to encase it in a breathable, washable pillow protector. It is not only an easy, no-nonsense solution for improved sleep health and wellness, but today’s sleep essentials can provide other benefits like aromatherapy, a cooler night’s sleep, and faster healing as well.
