bedding to soothe allergies and asthma {Aller-Ease}

Aller-Ease pillow encasement allergies and bed bugsAnyone with allergies knows that your bedding is the first place to consider upgrading to allergen-resistant products.  Pillows are a great place to start, since it is right next to your face.  Not only the pillow itself, but also its casing should be considered.   Next, of course, is the mattress–just as important.  No matter how much you wash your bedding, you can not protect yourself from what can be in your pillows and mattresses.  They are the perfect homes for allergens that trigger asthma and allergy symptoms.   While it is crucial to regularly wash your bedding, allergens are still accumulating deep inside your pillows and mattress.  They cannot be easily removed, but they can be filtered, protecting the sleeping bodies on top.

60 million people suffer from allergies and asthma, but only about 20% use an encasement–what a shame!  I want these products (especially for my 4 year old) but I would like to still be able to choose my own bedding.  Can you have both?  With Aller-Ease you can.  Aller-Ease is the #1 best-selling brand of protective bedding and Allergist Recommended.  They sell a variety of bedding, but I was most interested in the encasements (for mattress and pillows).   This way, you can zip up your most susceptible areas but still use the bedding on top that you choose–perfect.  The Aller-Ease Microbfiber Zippered Mattress Protector is designed especially for those who are allergy and asthma sufferers.  This mattress encasement is waterproof (great for kids or adults who spill a lot in bed).  Added benefits include protection from dust mite allergens, pollen, pet dander, and even bedbugs.  They really cover it all!  The encasement  is soft, unlike the plastic ones I have seen in the past.  It fits over your entire mattress snug (sells in Twin, Full, Queen, and King) and zippers closed, with an added flap for protection against any microscopic buggies trying to enter.  The Aller-Ease mattress protector encasementmaterial is made of two bonded layers.  The inner layer is a nonporous polyurethane film.  This makes the product waterproof. On top is a brushed microfiber.  The encasements also come in cotton.  For 360 protection, make sure you encase your pillows as well.  The Pillow Encasements come in a pack of two, and are sold in three sizes to perfectly fit your current pillows.

Don’t be fooled into thinking your mattress cover/pad will protect against allergens.  It is actually quite the opposite.  Those covers are likely to harbor even more allergens. If you have box springs and are very asthmatic or allergic, I suggest covering those as well with another Aller-Ease mattress protector. Before purchasing, check out the measurements on the mattress encasements: Twin (39 x 75 x 15), Full (54 x 75 x 15), Queen (60 x 80 x 15), King (78 x 80 x 15).  The Pillow encasement dimensions: Standard (20×26), Queen (20×30), King (20×36).  All products are machine washable and dryer safe.  Aller-Ease products come with a Good Housekeeping limited warranty as well.

Protect your family from dust mite allergens, pollen, mold, fungal spores, bedbugs and pet dander with Aller-Ease’s full line of affordable solutions. Look for Aller-Ease total bedding protection at www.aller-ease.com.
