Snuggle-Pedic products are known for being luxurious, USA-made, chiropractor designed, cool-sleeping, and environmentally friendly. We’re proud of that. Something else we can attest to, is how perfect our pillows are for those suffering from allergies. I myself deal with morning sniffles and like many others, have woken up breathing through my mouth from overnight congestion. It’s not fun, and it’s completely preventable. After years of just dealing with these sniffles by waiting an hour for allergy meds to kick in, I decided to do some research. What I found was both astonishing, and disgusting.
Why is my nose stuffy in the morning?
It’s simple, your bedding is destroying your peaceful mornings! There are little critters called dust mites that like to set up shop in your room, pay no rent, and cause your allergies to flare up. What’s even worse is that it’s not their actual presence that causes you to have an allergic reaction, it’s their feces. Dust mites eat dead skin cells and cotton fibers which they then digest and deposit all over your beloved pillows and mattresses.
This is what is living in your bedding. Disgusting right? It's estimated that the average used mattress can have up to 1 million dust mites in it! Your pillow is a culprit too, 10% of the weight of a two year old pillow can be comprised of dead dust mites and their droppings.
There are ways of cleaning your pillows with high heat to kill these bugs but I've always preferred more of a proactive approach to things. Which is exactly why having hypoallergenic bedding was my first choice and has paid out dividends every morning I wake up feeling fresh!
Cue our products.
While dust mites may enjoy living inside of your down pillow or cotton pillowcases, we use bamboo pillow covers and memory foam fill which are both resistant to dust mites and when paired with our Kool-Flow Pillow Cover, can be cleaned super easily! Lots of memory foam pillows are too heavy or get too hot but our proprietary blend of shredded memory foam plus the micro-vented Kool-Flow cover harmonizes into a night of allergy-free cool sleep. Our memory foam mattresses also use this same Kool-Flow cover that keep the dust mites away so that you can enjoy the perks of having a completely dust mite resistant sleeping experience.
For those wondering: "well that's great but I have a latex allergy, not a dust mite problem!" we've got you covered, Snuggle-Pedic products are also latex free so you don't have a thing in the world to worry about other than what book you're going to read before bed tonight.
If there's one message we hope Snuggle-Pedic preaches, it's to invest in your bedding, because it’s where you end up spending about one-third of your life!
