A cozy bed is an important factor in attaining a good night’s sleep. However, if your allergies are acting up in the night, the odds are you’ll toss and turn rather than resting easy. Unfortunately, the average bed tends to play host to a plethora of allergens, from mold and mildew to dust and dander. If you want to rest easy, keeping this part of the home clean is of the utmost importance. At Latest Bedding, we recognize that the best bedrooms serve as refuges from the outside world, giving you a place to sleep, read, relax, and study. Read on for tips on turning your space into a healthy, restful spot to spend your nights.
The Truth About Allergy-Free Bedding
Allergy sufferers are often looking for a miracle cure for their condition. Unfortunately, no bedding on the market can totally eliminate your sniffles, wheezes, and sneezes. However, making smarter decisions about sheets and comforters can help reduce your allergy symptoms and boost your ability to sleep through the night.
To start, we recommend opting for cotton over other bedding materials on the market. That’s because cotton is naturally hypoallergenic thanks to its clean, breathable weave. Unlike other fabrics, which tend to trap moisture, cotton allows air and sweat to pass through while you sleep. The result is less mold and mildew in your bed.
If you truly want to send allergies packing, washing your bedding regularly is essential. Because most allergies are caused by exposure to dust, pollen, dead skin, and pet dander that’s trapped in your bedding, experts recommend washing sheets and pillowcases on a weekly basis. For best results, use water that’s 130 degrees F or higher and dry bedding on a hot cycle. You can go a little longer between comforter washes, especially if you use a top sheet.
Protect Your PIllows
Washing pillowcases is crucial to minimizing allergies. However, you should also ensure your pillowcases are made from the right materials. We recommend choosing 100 percent cotton pillowcases, which are known to protect your face from allergies and acne. Additionally, the right pillowcase can keep your hair from getting oily in the night. Want to prevent hair loss? A silk or satin pillowcase may be the way to go, as it won’t pull on your locks while you slumber or ruin your blowout.
Guard Your Mattress
Long-time allergy sufferers may want to consider picking up a mattress cover. A fabric case that protects your mattress the same way a pillowcase guards your pillow, a mattress cover stops dust mites from reaching the mattress. Additionally, it prevents any dust mites or dander already in the mattress from floating into the air where you can breathe it in. As a bonus, you can easily toss the mattress cover in the wash whenever it needs laundering. It’s much easier (and cheaper) than paying for someone to steam clean your mattress.
Healthy Bedding for Better Sleep
Cozy comforter sets are a key part of sleep. The good news is you don’t have to choose between plush bedding and bedding that’s good for your allergies. At Latest Bedding, we offer a wide selection of 100 percent cotton comforters that will keep your room cool on even the hottest of summer nights. Here are some of our favorite style-friendly choices for allergy-free sleep:
