What are Pillow Protectors?

As the name suggests, pillow protectors are designed to protect your pillows from spills, stains and wear and tear. It’s essentially an extra layer of material which sits between the pillow filling and the outer case. You can fit them on exactly as you would a regular pillow case, with some folding over to close and some zipping up to create a complete seal

Pillow protectors are generally sold in packs of two or four to accommodate for sets of pillows and are available in a range of sizes. Prices can range anywhere from less than Rs. 300 to over Rs. 600 depending on the material.

What are the benefits of Pillow Protectors?

There are several benefits to using pillow protectors. The first, and most obvious benefit, is preventing the dreaded yellow pillow. These yellow stains are formed from sweat seeping through your pillow in the night, although makeup, oils from the body and drool can all contribute. You might notice similar stains on your duvet for the same reason. Pillow protectors act as a barrier against this moisture, particularly if you use a waterproof one.

Of course, the stains will appear on the protector instead, but the good news is these are much easier to wash and dry than the pillow itself, which is another benefit.

If you have allergies, a hypoallergenic protector, as mentioned above, can really help. As you sleep, dead skin cells as well as sweat can cause an abundance of dust mites to build up on your pillow, making you react and sneeze in the night. With a hypoallergenic pillow protector, dust mites are kept at bay from the pillow itself, leading to a more peaceful night’s sleep. In fact, pillow protectors are so effective that they can even stop the spread of bed bugs.

Finally, a pillow protector will prevent everyday wear and tear, stopping feathers from poking through as well as softening any pressure on the pillow itself. This means a foam pillow would be harder to tear, and a synthetic pillow would take longer to flatten. Ultimately, your pillow will last longer with a protector.
