That's why it's so important to keep all of that bad stuff from getting into our lungs by keeping it out of our pillow with a pillow protector.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 9, 2009
While for many Americans, a great nap often ends with a giant puddle of drool on the pillow, it doesn't have to end with allergens and bacteria breeding inside of it. In honor of the naptime drooler on this National Napping Day, Protect-A-Bed (http://www.protectabed.com) is showcasing its pillow protector (http://www.protectabed.com/pillow-protectors/pillow-protectors.aspx) line and making the case for a more sanitary napping environment.
Studies abound tout the benefits of napping, from enhancing memory and learning, to improving work performance, and increasing mental acuity and overall health. That's why on the first Monday after daylight saving time begins, when the majority of Americans lose one precious hour of sleep, it's fitting to celebrate the benefits of the nap and those who take them.
On this National Napping Day, Protect-A-Bed has chosen to salute the most magnificent of our napping species: the drooler. Droolers are particularly special because they fall into such a wonderful napping slumber that a puddle of drool is the inevitable result. A salute to the drooler is a salute to great napping.
While their naps are superb, many naptime droolers feel a bit of embarrassment about leaving spots on the outside of the pillow upon waking from glorious slumber, but it's what's happening inside of the pillow that's more of a concern. The average pillow is a veritable Petri dish of allergens, dust mites and bacteria. The drooler often compounds the problem by introducing extra moisture to the pillow. The warm, moist environment offers the perfect haven for allergens and bacteria to grow.
Sleeping on pillows filled with allergens and bacteria exacerbate allergy problems, as you inevitably breathe in the toxins, whether you're taking a 20-minute restorative nap or getting eight hours of sleep.
Luckily, droolers and people with allergies can give a sigh of relief, because it doesn't have to be that way. Pillow protectors, like those offered by Protect-A-Bed, create an allergy-free sleep zone and prevent allergens, dust mites, bacteria and moisture from getting into a pillow.
"Dust mites and bacteria are serious problems for those trying to get in a good nap, and for those of us who sleep so well we drool a bit, we're causing ourselves extra problems, " said James Bell, CEO of Protect-A-Bed in Chicago. "That's why it's so important to keep all of that bad stuff from getting into our lungs by keeping it out of our pillow with a pillow protector."
For those wishing to protect their pillows, and themselves, Protect-A-Bed offers three types of pillow protectors for consumers to choose from:
- Premium pillow protectors (http://www.protectabed.com/pillow-protectors/premium-pillow-protectors.aspx) provide protection for the individual and the pillow. The super soft, absorbent yet ultra-thin Premium pillow protectors are air vapor porous and cool, and they protect users from allergens, dust mites and bacteria. Premium pillow protectors prevent staining on pillows, too (Perfect for the droolers of the world).
- AllerZip™ (http://www.protectabed.com/pillow-protectors/allerzip-pillow-protectors.aspx) pillow protectors are ideal for chronic allergy sufferers, and provide a protective barrier against bacteria, dust mites and bed bugs. In fact, AllerZip pillow protectors feature the BugLock™ secure seal, making them bed bug entry, exit and bite proof. For those interested in protection against allergens and bed bugs, AllerZip products offer the perfect solution.
- Plush Pillow Protectors (coming in mid-March) provide superior allergy protection by guarding pillows against unhealthy dust mite infestations and other harmful allergens. The Plush pillow protector features a terry cloth surface for superior comfort and a soft feel. It has the added benefit of being waterproof and absorbent while still remaining air vapor porous.
So, droolers, with all of the options for pillow protection, there's no need to be ashamed of the puddle you wake up next to on this National Napping Day. Drool on, friends! Embrace the benefits of napping; just remember with the right pillow protection, the quality of the experience can be even better.
