Top 5 Reasons you need Pillow Covers
Pillow covers are easy to remove and wash; they help to conveniently guard against allergens and extend the life of your pillows by keeping them cleaner.
Sohum provides our customers with a wide range of pillow covers, also called protectors.
1. Keeps your pillows cleaner
Pillow covers are the first line of defence to keep pillows cleaner for longer. The reality of life is that we shed a little every day. Over time, our pillows get filled with skin cells, dirt, and dander just like our beds do. Using a pillow cover will prevent buildup on the down and feather inside the pillow. This extends the time between pillow washings, saving laundry time.
2. Blocks out allergens
Our allergy pillow covers are made with tightly woven fabric. This fabric keeps dander and dust out of the pillow to prevent allergens from building up in the filling of the pillow. These pillow covers are also hot water washable, which is important since allergists commonly recommend washing linens weekly in 130 degree water.
3. Fluffier for life
Using pillow covers creates a defence against those body fluids that end up on our pillows. The oils and dirt in sweat and saliva can build up to weigh down the pillow and reduce its fluff. While this can happen to any pillow, it can be a bigger factor in fibre pillows since they are light and we want them to be fluffy to maintain their performance.
4. Assurance against bed bugs
Bed bugs aren’t a big issue for pillows since they tend to like the creases of the mattress better. For some having a little extra security can be important for those with a bed bug problem as it is common in large cities.
