Protect-a-bed AllerZip pillow encasements protect pillows against bed bugs, allergens, dust mites, dirt and liquids. Unprotected pillows create the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites, or provide harborage for bed bugs. Now you can protect these sensitive areas with Protect-a-Bed pillow encasements. Each encasement is machine washable and made of soft, terry cotton so your pillows remain cool and comfortable to sleep on. Each pack contains two standard pillow encasements measuring 21"x27".
Protect-a-Bed Pillow encasements are a recommended addition to any bed bug treatment program. You will still need to treat infested areas of the bedrooms. However, because the #1 breeding ground for bed bugs is the mattress, box spring and pillow you can now just spray and then zip up these critical areas which will eliminate a large part of the infestation. In addition, this can save an infested pillow so you don't have to throw it out and buy a replacement. Any eggs and/or bed bugs trapped in the encasement will eventually die. If you should find bed bugs on your bedding again at some point in the future, treatment would be as easy as taking off the encasement and washing it in hot water.
We recommend spraying an infested pillow with a bed bug control product, such as Steri-Fab first (or you may launder at temperatures greater than 120 degrees) before encasing it and then keeping the pillow encasements intact for at least 12 months (bed bugs can live a very long time without a blood meal). The bed bugs and eggs inside will die, and the pillows will be protected from further infestation.

The Protect-A-Bed AllerZip Pillow Covers are far superior to any I have ever used before. The comfort level is great. There is not outside plastic but rather a soft covering with waterproofing inside. I would recommend these covers to anyone who wants protection from any type of allergy. I would certainly purchase this product again.
We don't travel often, but I spend a lot of time picking out hotels when we do. Unfortunately, most hotels now have down pillows, and being allergic and asthmatic, I have to take my own pillows into hotels, on cruises, etc. Was pleased to find this product, knowing I wouldn't be bringing home any unwanted travelers. (I always change pillow cases before leaving hotel too and put in air tight plastic bags to bring home). It is a little "crunchy", but I covered them with a standard pillow case cover and pillow case and that helped. However, it did make my head sweat a little more than normal at times due to the unbreathability of the pillow case covers. Definitely a must for traveling though.
I was afraid it would feel like sleeping on a plastic bag, but I was pleased to find that they're very comfortable. I haven't been able to put the mattress cover on my bed yet because an auto accident has my shoulders almost unmovable, but I'm looking forward to getting that done soon.
I bought these for prevention. My son is going to college and I don't want to take any chances. I can say that these covers are made very well and I think they will prevent any bugs from getting into our new mattresses if we were to get them. I don't ever want to have to deal with bedbugs, but if I do, I will have taken preventative measures.
The pillow covers are extremely soft and comfortable. I am using for a one week, and I really got rid of bugs in my pillows. Really slept well in the dark powerless night after post Hurricane Sandy days, without the additional fear of bugs.
