My son and I both have too many allergies to count...really I'm serious. I mean who actually has a doctor tell you that they can't give you the full panel of allergy testing because it would over load your system? Well we do :0(
Anyway, those of you with allergies know that one of the major things you can do to reduce allergens is to encase your pillows and mattresses in allergy covers. And actually it does help.
But have you ever seen some of these products? I mean plastic is not exactly comfortable to sleep on, it makes you sweat and besides, the pillow cases tend to slide off. Then there are the woven covers with a plastic back that starts to peal and crack after a few washes.
Well, I have finally found an acceptable, although expensive, alternative. The Pure Slumber Pillow by Allergy Control Products. These pillows come in all sizes (body, king, standard, wedge, travel) and range in price from $34 to $69.
The Pure Slumber Pillow's shell is made from 200 thread count but it is the fluffy stuff inside that is so special. It is specially made to repell dust mites and remain "hygienically clean" for the "life of the pillow."
I have rationalized the price by telling myself that since I have to replace the pillow covers so often, really the price probably comes out the same...that's my story and I'm sticking to it :0)
