Pillow Health

Did you know that your pillow can harbour many bacteria, fungi and dust mites creating a microscopic city of bad guys?  There are an average of 2 million dust mites on your pillow and their faeces are the big problem, causing allergic symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes.  if this happens to you first thing in the morning - its no coincidence!  Your pillow is also a breading ground for bacteria and fungi also causing those allergen symptoms.  And if you have pets and you share a bed with them, they will contribute with potentially harmful bacteria.

To avoid those nasties and be sure that you have a clean pillow, there are a few things you can do:

  • Replace you pillow every 2 years
  • Wash your pillow twice a year
  • Use our DuraTherme Pillow - its totally waterproof and provides a barrier for those dust mites and bacteria so they can't penetrate into the pillow.  Simply wipe down any sweat or dribbles with warm water.
  • Use our DuraTherme Pillow Protector to cover your existing pillow, which also provides the same barrier protection from those nasties.  It also comes in a terry towelling option for a soft touch.
