Should you be using a pillow protector?

In the quest for a good night’s sleep, much attention is given to finding the perfect mattress and looking after it, but what about your pillow? It’s a sanctuary for your head, deserving protection and care. This brings us to an often overlooked but crucial bedding accessory: the pillow protector. But do you really need one?

The Unsung Hero of Bedding

Pillow protectors serve as a shield, guarding against moisture, allergens, and wear. They not only protect your pillow against moisture but also extend the life of your pillows by guarding against wear and tear. With pillow protectors like Hippychick’s, you get the added benefits of a soft, breathable fabric that doesn’t compromise on comfort, making it an essential addition to any bedding setup for a healthier sleep environment.

Pillow Protector or Pillow Case?

Pillow protectors and pillow cases serve very different purposes. While both cover your pillow, a protector is specifically designed to shield the pillow from moisture, allergens, and wear, often featuring waterproof and anti-allergy materials. It fits snugly around the pillow, usually with a zippered closure to fully encase it. A pillow case, on the other hand, is mainly for comfort and aesthetics, made from various fabrics to match bedding and not offering the same protective features as a protector. It’s common to use both, with the protector directly over the pillow, covered by a decorative pillow case.

What to Look for in a Pillow Protector

When choosing and using a pillow protector, consider its material, waterproof and anti-allergy features, and ease of washing. A quality protector should be comfortable, effective in its protective barriers, and easy to look after, ideally machine washable and suitable for tumble drying. Hippychick’s Pillow Protectors can be tumble dried on the lowest making washing them a breeze!

Don’t Forget Your Duvet & Mattress

Going all-in with protectors for your duvet and mattress, along with your pillows, is like giving your bed a super comfy, hygienic hug. Think of duvet protectors as your duvet’s best friend, keeping it clean and fluffy, and mattress protectors as the unsung hero saving your mattress from the dreaded spills and dust mites. It’s a total game-changer for your sleep zone, making everything snuggly, fresh, and clean.
