Beyond your mattress, your pillow goes a long way to providing a good night’s sleep. However, you don’t want to rest your head and face on the pillow itself. The dirt, sweat, saliva, skin cells, and other unpleasant things we shed can shorten a pillow’s life. This is why a high-quality pillowcase is so important!
We carry numerous pillowcase options, in different colors, materials, sizes, and brands. That’s because City Mattress wants you to have plenty of choices. For example, we carry luxury pillowcases from SFERRA, a brand known around the world for their top-tier 100% extra-long staple Egyptian cotton linens.
A pillowcase does a lot more than just match your sheets. The right pillowcase ensures a restful night's sleep. Whether you want cool cotton, silky sateen, or something to offer the best allergy protection, we have the right pillowcase for you!
As a general rule of thumb, we recommend you change your bedding every two weeks. Refer to your pillowcase’s label for best cleaning options. Some pillowcase materials, such as silk, should be washed less frequently. Furthermore, silk pillowcases are best washed by hand, to preserve the soft, silky quality.
Silk pillowcases are the top choice for hair, because silk provides little friction. This translates to less opportunity for tangling and fraying.
Again, silk pillowcases are the best choice for skin. The reason for this is that silk has low absorbency. This means that silk pillowcases don’t absorb as much oil from your skin, and therefore they lower the chances of acne.
Because everyone is different, there is no single pillowcase that is best for sleeping. Instead, consider which materials are most comfortable to you. Your pillowcase stays in contact with your skin, so you want the most comfort you can get.
