Tips On Allergy Proof Bed CoversRoyal Beddings
In 21.st, century, there are many studies and researches based on people who experience allergies while spending time in their homes. One of the main sources of allergies is the bedroom and the place where you sleep. So we did detailed research on allergy proof bed covers, and how to protect your bedroom from dust mites, bed bugs, pollen, and other allergens. It is very important to understand the value of cleaning and maintaining your bedding and covers since we all like a good night’s sleep, right?
To have completely allergy proof bed covers and while keeping yourself protected from allergens in your bedroom, we recommend using only cotton bed covers which are absolutely fantastic in terms of fabric quality, breathability, comfort, and price. Having a couple of pairs of 100% cotton beddings is always a great solution to have around. The reason why cotton is a perfect solution for people who experience allergic reactions in their bedroom is that this material is completely organic. Organic materials don’t tend to cause allergic reactions in people, even for ones with heavy symptoms.
Changing your bed covers with allergy proof bed covers such as cotton covers is not enough to get rid of all allergens in the bedroom. Taking this into consideration, you need to understand how to completely fight off dust mites and other little pests that cause allergic reactions in your body. Allergens live in many areas of your bedroom and house, but with little work and patience, you can make your life stress-free and finally enjoy your sleep and day to day activities.
Common Causes Of Allergies
We can say that it all starts from your bedroom and the place you spend the night in. Dust mites and dead skin cells tend to stick around your bedding and bed covers, or if you spend time in upholstered furniture. These allergens cause common reactions like sneezing, itchy nose, and skin, sinus pressure, red eyes, scratchy throat, coughing, etc.
Do not be mistaken with these symptoms by adding them to the same basket with seasonal allergies, since there are a lot of similarities between the two. The best to understand season allergies is how you feel when you are spending time outside or at work, and compare your symptoms.
Dust mites live in the dust itself, so this makes completely removing dust mites almost impossible. But common misconception with people allergic to dust and dust mites is that they are allergic to high concentrations of dust mites, and not just to any amount. Our body posses many ways to fight off bacterias, and allergic reactions are just the product of it.
To reduce your allergic reactions in general, you have to remove sources and high concentrations of allergens around the places where you spend the most time. Bedrooms and sleeping areas are where you will find the most allergens and dust mites, so keeping the room and furniture clean is also one of the main ways to protect yourself from allergies.

With allergy proof bed covers like cotton, we also highly recommend making a schedule of bedroom maintenance at least once per week, but for people experiencing difficulties with allergies, we even recommend doing it 2-3 times per week.
Cotton Allergy Proof Bed Covers
At this point, you probably know how cotton bed covers are an excellent solution to have allergy proof bed covers. We also have to point out that there are cotton beddings that are mixed with different materials, such as polyester. By making the mix of these two, you will get more affordable material and products in general, which can be used on your bed.
For people experiencing allergies in the bedroom, we do not recommend using blends and mixtures of different materials, and this is especially the case with organic and non-organic materials. If you decide to use cotton material for your allergy proof bed covers and beddings, then be sure to buy 100% pure cotton beddings, which will ensure that you are using a completely organic material. By knowing this, there is not a chance that you will experience allergic reactions, at least not from beddings.

This statement is valid for most organic materials out there. Each piece of organic bedding is made in a way to be environmentally friendly so it does not contain any genetically engineered substances and chemicals, which can cause various health issues for people with strong reactions.
To reap all the benefits of having a good night’s sleep and not worrying, go with organic beddings such as wool, cotton or sateen. All these materials are commonly used in beddings and bed covers. There is a large array of options on the market, so our suggestion is that you do not have to take chances with polyester or latex beddings since these are the materials that cause allergies and skin irritations, especially in warmer seasons.
100% organic sateen is also a nice solution, and for days we can praise the quality and comfort of this material. Of course, this type of bedding is considered as a luxurious one, which means that you have to be more comfortable with your budget and be ready to spend a bit more money on this type of textile.
Preventing Dust Mites In Pillows & Beddings
So how to prevent dust mites in pillows and beddings? There are a lot of ways to do it, so by applying all methods have mentioned earlier and which we are about to mention, you can be sure that making your home allergy-free is definitely worth it.
All beddings, pillows, pillowcases and any type of cover used for your bed must be made of a tight woven which blocks any dust mites, allergens, and substances that cause reactions. On the market, you can find dedicated allergy proof bed covers, beddings, pillowcases and mattresses that keep you protected.
While keeping you safe, these types of beddings made from organic materials will make your sleep cozy and comfy. Any 100% pure organic material will ensure to do the job, but always compare and look for the best supplier.
Pillowcases are also a critical spot, so having pillowcases made of cotton or any other tight woven organic-cloth is the way to go. We also recommend buying pillowcases with zippers, and not with buttons. Buttons are unable to completely close down the pillow, so using a zipper will ensure that the pillow is completely closed down and cut down the number of allergens reaching your pillow to a minimum.
Like it’s the case with pillowcases, having bed covers and sheets made from organic materials is also something we highly recommend. Sheets do not tend to cause reactions since they are oftentimes made from simple cloth and they do not contain any chemicals and strange substances. On the other hand, if you are buying “special” sheets, the ones in different colors and various designs, these might contain chemicals since they must be used to produce a certain color. Be sure to read the label and find out detailed information about the sheets and covers you bought for your bedroom.
Before buying new bedding and bed covers, always make sure that you are buying the ones that are easy to wash and maintain. Some materials might need more attention to washing and cleaning. From our experience, using cotton is the safest option since it is very easy to maintain. After a few years, it must be replaced since often washing in the washing machine will cause the fabric to tear, but it has the best ratio between quality, breathability, maintenance, and price.

Additional Steps For Extra Protection
To keep yourself protected and extra cautious about allergens and allergic reactions and by reducing them to a minimum, it might be a good idea to spend more time on self-awareness and take a look at your surroundings. If you have pets in your house if you are spending a lot of time with your neighbor’s or your friends’ pet, this is also something that can cause reactions. Pollen and animal dander can be transferred from your clothing to your bed very easily. Try your best to keep your home or at least your bedroom pet-free if you want to play it safe.
Cheap detergent can also cause allergies and skin irritations. Most people tend not to care much about the detergent they use for their beddings and clothing, but this is something that might cause most of your problems since we wear clothes every day and spend an average of 8 hours in bed.
Take a good look at the label of your detergent and read through the substances used for that detergent. If you are aware of what substance you are allergic to, then the only way is to switch your old detergent with a new one that is of better quality. When visiting the store, try asking specifically for a detergent that is okay to use for people who might experience allergies of different chemicals.
