A quilt protector is a specialty product, and is usually only used by those with allergies. We stock the Bambury Mite Guard quilt protector. The quilt goes inside this protector, which then zips up, and you can then put your quilt cover over the top of it. The protector is designed to keep mites and dust out of the quilt, and is available up to super king size. It can be paired with matching pillow protectors and a mattress protector from the same range for full protection.
What if I’m a hot sleeper?
If you are prone to overheating, the best mattress covers or protectors will be ones made from natural fibres like bamboo or cotton. Steer away from polyester protectors where possible.
Can you wash a mattress protector?
Our mattress protectors are fully washable. For information on how to wash your mattress protector, consult the individual product information and follow all instructions.
Do pillow protectors need to be washed?
If you’re wondering if your pillow protector needs washing, then the answer is yes. You need to get your pillow protectors cleaned regularly, just like you’d get your pillows cleaned. Even though these pillow protectors are made of plastic, they can still get dirty. All of the dirt, oil, dead skin cells and bacteria that gets on your pillow before the protector goes on can still get transferred to your protector. So if you want your protector to last longer and be more effective, you need to wash it every couple of weeks.
How long does a pillow protector last?
The lifetime of a pillow protector is a function of how well it is cared for. The average lifetime of a pillow protector is between 1-5 years. Many factors can affect the life of a pillow protector, including:
1. How frequently it is used
2. The types of materials used in its construction
3. The nature of the environment it is used in (hot and humid areas will reduce the life of the pillow protector) The best way to maximize the lifetime of your pillow protector is to follow all of the washing and drying instructions provided with the pillow protector. Use a gentle cycle.
4. Use warm water and a mild detergent (if needed)
5. Do not use chlorine bleach (bleach will break down the waterproof material and make it porous and vulnerable to leaks)
6. Remove your pillow protector from the dryer immediately and hang it up to dry.
7. Avoid using fabric softeners or dryer sheets.
8. The use of a pillow protector will prolong the life of your pillow and ensure that it is thoroughly protected. Hope this helps. Cheers!
