Great value pillow protectors for asthma and allergy sufferers

SADLY NO LONGER AVAILABLE – Go for the excellent Silentnight Anti Allergy Pillow Protectors (2 for £8.00 at Argos) instead.

These are actually even better value and much softer than the John Lewis ones and are approved by The British Allergy Foundation.   

A friend recommended I buy some pillow protectors for my son who has suffered from asthma and allergies for years.  I had never bought them before so, as a novice, I decided to opt for a cheap pair to see whether they would be worthwhile.  I ordered these online and was quite surprised when they arrived as the material was mesh like and not dissimilar to a hotel laundry bag.  I was quite concerned that he would be able to feel the material through the pillow case but he hasn’t mentioned it yet so I assume he hasn’t noticed any difference!

The protectors are a great fit for our standard size John Lewis pillows, easy to put on but not so bulky that I struggled to put the pillowcase over the top.  The zip seems quite robust too, so they should be fine when I take them off to wash them.  They are machine washable and it is recommended that you wash them at a temperature of 60 to kill all dust mites. I also felt reassured that they have the British Allergy Foundation seal of approval which shows that they have been tested by leading allergy specialists.

Overall a great bargain buy for allergy sufferers.
