This dust mite allergy pillow cover is made from cotton, so it’s great for those who prefer natural fibres. A comfortable, breathable, 100% cotton pillow encasement that doesn’t use synthetics to reduce dust mite exposure. The average pore size of our tightly woven cotton is 4.91 microns (one-millionth of a metre). Research has shown that fabric with a pore size less than 10 microns blocks dust mite and other common household allergens*.
Tightly Woven 100% Cotton Dust Mite Allergy Pillow Cover Allows Air Flow but Blocks the Passage of Dust Mites & Allergens From Your Pillow to You.
It’s hard work to wash a pillow; they’re bulky and dry slowly. It’s much easier to wash an anti-dust mite pillow cover instead. 100% Cotton pillow covers allow the best airflow, while still preventing the dust mites, dust mite allergens, most moulds, bed bugs & cat allergens that live in your pillow from reaching the skin and airways of hay fever sufferers.

As an rhinitis sufferer, I ‘road test’ the products that I make available at Allergy Australia. I don’t test a product unless I can find reliable medical/scientific research to back up the product’s use.
I’ve used this dust mite allergy pillow cover personally and found it effective in reducing the overnight hay fever symptoms that I experience. My symptoms are sniffles, puffy eyes and occasionally, wheeziness. As an added bonus, I have an oily hair type and find that the ‘breathability’ of the cotton dust mite allergy pillow cover means that the oil in my hair takes a little longer to build up, compared to when I’m using a synthetic fabric cover.
