This dust mite allergy mattress cover is for those of us that don’t like using chemicals. An 100% cotton mattress encasement that doesn’t use synthetics to reduce dust mite exposure. The average pore size of this finely woven cotton is 4.91 microns (one-millionth of a metre). Fabrics with a pore size of 10 microns or below have been proven to block dust mite and other common household allergens*.
I’ve used this dust mite allergy mattress cover personally and can vouch that it is effective in reducing the rhinitis symptoms that I normally experience overnight and upon waking up, such as sniffles, puffy eyes and respiratory congestion (wheeziness).
Just like our Cotton Blend allergy proof mattress covers, these fitted mattress covers have a cool, comfortable cloth outside, and a breathable, urethane waterproof and dust mite barrier on the inside. Being a fitted cover they as easy to put on as a fitted sheet.
