About Our Pillow Protectors
Your pillow serves a very important purpose. It supports your head and neck throughout the night, ensuring that you can wake up without neck pain or stiffness. When you finally find a great pillow, you want it to last! A quality pillow protector will keep your favorite pillow stain and allergen free.
Pillow protectors are one of the basics of a healthy sleep environment. Pillow protectors are like pillowcases with fabric technology that offers enhanced features for your health and comfort. This can be done with a variety of materials, especially nylon and polyester. For instance, the Malouf Five 5ided® Pillow Protector features Omniphase® material to promote a comfortable sleeping temperature.

Learn More About Pillow Protectors - FAQ
What’s the difference between a pillow protector and a pillowcase?
A pillowcase is generally decorative and matches your sheet set. It may be made for comfort, but it isn’t made to prevent allergens, oils, dust mites, and other common contaminants from reaching your pillow. A pillow protector, on the other hand, is specifically designed to protect your pillow from these contaminants.
Do I need to use a pillow protector?
Over time, our pillows get filled with skin cells, dirt, and dander just like our mattresses do. Using a pillow cover will act as a barrier in between these nasty things and your pillow.
Can I put a pillowcase over my pillow protector?
Yes! Your pillowcase should be soft and comfortable, as it goes right up against your face. The pillow protector acts as the line of defense that stops your pillow from being ruined by spills, dirt, and allergens.
What is the best fabric or material for pillow protectors?
That depends on you and your needs. We sell pillow protectors made from different brands and a variety of materials. For instance, the Fiona Pillow Protector, from SFERRA, has a luxurious sateen feel.
How long do pillow protectors last?
You'll want to replace your pillows about once a year to ensure optimal comfort and support. We recommend that you purchase new pillow protectors at the same time.
What should I look for in a pillow protector?
You want to select a high-quality brand, like Malouf or SFERRA. Also, pay attention to the materials and make sure they fit your comfort needs. When it comes to any kind of bedding, you get what you pay for!
Will pillow protectors help with allergies?
Yes! The best pillow protectors are hypoallergenic.
Are pillow protectors waterproof?
Yes. The primary purpose of a good pillow protector is protecting your pillow from spills and stains.
How often should I wash my pillow protectors?
We recommend that you wash the outer cover every three weeks, and that you wash your pillow every three months. This ensures an allergen and contaminant free environment for your face!
