How to choose an allergy bedding fabric:

  • 100% Cotton is our most popular fabric, and is the most comfortable, breathable dust-mite proof fabric on the market. Made with very tightly woven 100% Cotton only (with no urethane membrane), it is also very affordable. More comfortable than the older style 60/40 Cotton-Poly blend, and closer in feel to real sheets than the Pristine brand.

  • Organic 100% Cotton is just like the regular 100% Cotton but made from certified organic cotton only. It is not treated with any chemicals, dyes, or bleach, so you may want to consider this fabric if you are sensitive to chemicals or if you prefer to only use organic products in your home.

  • Bed-Bug Proof fabric - also known as "Stretch-Knit" - contains a urethane membrane to prevent even the smallest bed bug from passing through the material. It is also 100% waterproof, but still allows air to pass through for breathability and comfort.

  • Economy (SMS Econoshield) is recommended for box springs, or if you need dust mite protection but have a limited budget. It is a very lightweight material, which makes it ideal for travel. It is not the most comfortable material to sleep on, so if comfort is important, the 100% Cotton would be the best choice for your mattress and pillow.

How to Measure your Mattress:
Mattress encasings are made in several common sizes to fit most mattresses: Twin (39x75), Long Twin (39x80), Full (54x75), Queen (60x80), King (78x80), and Cal King (72x84). If you are unsure which size you need, just measure the width and length of your mattress. Next, you will need to determine the depth (or height) of your mattress. Mattress encasings are available in 9", 12", and 16" deep sizes, and you will want to get the correct depth encasing to ensure that you can properly encase your entire mattress and allow the zipper to close properly and seal out the dust mites. Measure your mattress on three sides from bottom to top, and take the largest of these three measurements. The 9" deep encasings will cover a mattress that is up to 9" deep. For mattresses that are between 9" and 12", select the 12" Depth. Mattresses that are between 12" and 16" will need the 16" Depth. If you are unsure which depth mattress encasing you need, it is always best to get the deeper encasing, as you can always tuck in any extra material underneath the mattress (encasings may tear during installation if the mattress is slightly too deep).

How to Care for your Allergy Bedding:
Regular washing of your sheets and pillow cases in warm to hot water is very important for any allergy sufferer, however these zippered dust-mite proof allergy encasings do not require any special care, or frequent washings. Most people choose to cover their allergy encasings with their regular sheets, pillow cases, and decorative duvet covers, which means that the allergy encasings will not get dirty as often. It is recommended to wash your allergy pillow encasings every 2-3 months to keep them clean, and your mattress encasings every 3-4 months. Most encasings can be mashine washed in warm water and dried on low (Economy encasings should be hand washed and air dried only).

About Dust Mites:
Dust mites are microscopic eight legged creatures, 0.3mm in length, and invisible to the human eye. They are the most common allergen-producing organisms found in homes, and they live in any bedding product including pillows, mattresses, box springs, comforters, carpet, and upholstered furniture. Dust mites themselves pose no threat to us, however their fecal matter is the allergen that many people are allergic to. A bed can contain millions of dust mites, which means that virtually all dust mite sensitive people will experience problems as a direct result of exposure to dust mites and their droppings in their bedding. Since we can spend 8 hours or more per day sleeping, it is vitally important to keep these dust mites and their allergens from coming into contact with us and possibly triggering allergy symptoms. The best way to do this is with these dust-mite proof bedding encasings.
