Why use allergy-sensitive bedding?
We all spend up to a third of our lives in bed, and while we are asleep, our bodies are busy generating new skin cells, losing hairs and sweat, as well as possible other bodily fluids, so it is no surprise that scientists have found that most of our pillows and mattresses contain a range of nasty organisms, bacteria, dust mites and more. Although not dangerous, they can cause skin irritation, trigger asthma attacks, cause breathing difficulties or make you wake up in the morning with sore eyes. If you are sensitive to any of these conditions, or are sensitive to particular materials, it may benefit you to invest in some allergy sensitive bedding available at Spotlight.
It is important to remember that allergies come in all kinds of forms, and people can be allergic to natural materials such as feather or down, often found in bedding, or man-made materials found in many duvets and pillows.

How do I care for my allergy-sensitive bedding?
All good allergy-sensitive bedding is machine washable, but make sure you read the care label to check at which temperature your bedding can be laundered. House dust mites will be killed at temperatures of 60c and above, but washing at lower temperatures will only provide temporary respite. Dry cleaning is not usually a good alternative for allergy sufferers because the treatment involves fairly harsh chemicals.
