Where would you be without pillows on your bed? Needless to say, it wouldn’t be the most comfortable night’s sleep.
With pillows being such an important asset, you may already have a set of pillow protectors cocooning your pillow, but you may not be aware of the benefits a pillow protector can offer both your wallet and your health! At Mattressman, we’ve compiled a list of benefits about pillow protectors that you might not have considered:
Keeping your pillows clean
As we sleep, our bodies produce excess sweat that can find its way on to our pillows – a protector can help to keep this away from your pillows, preventing odours and stains from developing. Most pillow protectors are machine-washable and can be easily maintained and kept at their best.
Prolonging your pillow’s lifespan
Protectors are a great way to prolong the lifespan of your pillows, helping to prevent regular wear and tear. If you are able to maintain the cleanliness of your pillows by using a protector, the less frequently you will need to replace them. It is recommended that pillows are replaced every six months, but this can depend on whether or not a protector is used.
Prevent the trigger of allergies
Pillows are a great home for dust, which can be a problem if you suffer with allergies or asthma. Using a pillow protector can prevent the build-up of dust mites and other allergens that can trigger symptoms.
Pillow protectors can also add comfort, so if your pillows are in need of a refresh, protectors are a great way of giving them a new lease of life as well as adding an extra layer of plushness.
Now we’re getting into the chillier seasons, it’s the time of year that you may consider refreshing and replacing your current bedding – and now you know the benefits of pillow protectors, you can include them in your shop. If you fancy some plump new pillows too, our range can be found right here.
