Many people are asking why they need a pillow protector. They are also wondering why a pillow case isn’t enough. In some cases, pillow cases are enough to protect your pillow from dust, sweat and stains. However, there are also times when you need more than a pillow case and this is where the pillow protector comes in. A pillow protector is an added layer between your pillow and pillow cases. Its main function is to keep your pillow stain-free and dust free.
For people who have dust sensitivity they know that dust is not really the problem. The problem is dust mites and their droppings. Dust mites like to feed on dead human skin cells that we shed on a daily basis. These dead skin cells accumulate in our beds, linens, towels, clothing, carpets and just about anywhere humans are. Pillows and pillow cases are not spared from dust mites. People who have allergic reactions are not really reacting to the mites but their droppings which is why it is important to protect yourself from dust mites.

Pillow protectors are not just for dust mite protection. They can also protect your pillows against spills and stains.

It might not seem much but the added layer can help prevent liquids from seeping though especially if you use Luxura’s quilted pillow protectors.
