Why are pillows important?

As much as your mattress, having a supportive pillow is a crucial part of getting a good night’s sleep.  Not only does it give you somewhere comfortable to lie your head but also supports your neck and helps avoid straining muscles.  However not all basic pillows can have the anti allergy components that some people may need so this is where pillow covers come into action.

Anti-allergy

Pillow covers and other bedding that are branded as anti-allergy actually do a whole range of protective jobs because there are quite a few different things that cause the allergies.  They protect against the main cause, dust mites, but also against mould and mildew.

Experts say when selecting an anti-allergy pillow cover, you should look for one that is easy to take on and off your pillow and maintains its appearance after numerous washes.  It should also be water repellent and breathable.

Pillow toppers

Another option for giving life to an older pillow that isn’t quite doing its job any more is to use a pillow topper.  These are very similar to the memory foam mattress toppers that have become ever more available and work in a similar manner.

Decorative

Decorative pillow covers are a great way of taking a plain pillow, or one that has seen better days and refreshing it with a new cover.  They can also be brilliant when you are changing your décor and want to add a touch of something fresh.  They are often referred to as throw pillows to differentiate them from the ones you sleep on and come in a huge range of sizes and shapes.
