New review for fabric change.
This review replaces one I wrote 2/19/2021 about the product before the specs changed. I have just received my newest cases and found a completely different fabric. Instead of the usual non-woven, spunbond polypropylene its polyester, and appear to be a woven fabric, at least on the outside. Good quality construction, so far as I can tell, with a good zipper. I washed in cold water and hung dry before using. I would expect these to perform at least as well as the old version, and possibly last longer. Im thinking the new fabric may be an attempt to solve the old versions de-lamination problem. As for dust mite control, I have no valid way to determine if the claims are true or not. (Ditto the previous version.) But I can tell you the fabric does feel like its unlikely to let anything through. It holds water from the wash until I turn it upside down or inside out to drain. To my hand, the slightly shiny inside feels like a micro-thin layer of foam adhered to the outside layer. If Im correct, then it too has the capacity to delaminate. Well see what happens after some use. They are still a good value compared with other brands.Mary
Value-priced alternative to brand names.
I've been buying allergy bedding covers for at least 30 years. I have a bunch of this Pillow Guard brand in standard and queen sizes. I think most allergy bedding covers are made of spunbond polypropylene, a non-woven fabric, like you see in a Tyvek coverall. Thats why you hear the crinkly sound. These are the best price I've seen for allergy covers. However, I'm a bit uncertain about the quality, which seems quite good out of the bag, but sometimes not so good after some use. Once the inner layer starts to de-laminate, it continues to come apart. I've had the same problem with higher priced brand names however, so its not unique to this brand. And I've seen the same effect, only worse, on mattress covers. I suspect friction from body heat and movement starts the de-lamination, and by the time I notice, its too far gone to salvage. (I do salvage any intact sections for my sewing stash.) It could be that my lazy laundry habits contribute to the de-lamination. I usually air dry, but sometimes I forget, and they end up in the dryer.
The last two 2 packs I ordered contained one standard size cover, but the second is about one-half the standard length. (At least one other reviewer also reported too-small cases.) Unfortunately, it was months before I even opened them, although I believe Walmart would have replaced them anyway. My own fault: I never got around to reporting the defect.
For those who don't like the noise: I find that the additional cotton zipper cover I add before the outer pillowcase cuts down on the scratchy sound mentioned by others. (It may even prolong the life of the allergy cover, but I cant say for sure because I haven't been tracking wear.) I am sensitive to irritating noises, but this one does not bother me. Best to put both zippers on the same side in case you need to force out trapped air. Summary: I can only recommend these cases with the reservations shown above. Still, if they last even 1-2 years of nightly use, they are an extremely good value. I keep buying them because I cant justify high-priced covers while these are available.Mary
My girlfriend and I both suffer from allergies. Just to be sure our new pillows would not make for a terrible nights sleep, I covered them. I do not like to take chances when it comes to allergies. I've been using Walmart allergy relief bedding covers for years and never had any problems. These do make a little noise and tend to have air in them when you use them but that's much better than runny eyes and noses! Pillows and bedding can absorb allergens over time. With these, that won't happen!mrfixit9999
