allergies make you grumpy

Good-bye Grumpy and Sleepy

If your allergies or asthma keep you from getting a great night’s sleep, you can’t be your very best.

You’re just the grumpy and sleepy version of your best self.  When you put a  mattress cover from the Allergy Store on your bed you will be protected from all those pesky allergens that tickle your nose, make you cough, and prevent you from getting the restful sleep your body needs.

You wake refreshed; ready to grab your coffee and go. No one will mistake you for a cartoon dwarf. They will just see the real you, the rested you, the better you.

Friends and co-workers will thank you.

So Long Shiners

Those dark circles under your eyes are the result of more than just missing a few z’s.  Allergists and immunologists refer to them as “allergic shiners”.

They are a result of the increased blood flow to the nasal and sinus area as a result of allergic reactions.  Those reactions can be triggered by the hordes of dust mites and other allergens in your mattress, pillows, and other bedding.

When you zip up your mattress in one of our mattress covers and seal up your pillows in our pillow covers you won’t spend all night breathing those allergens.

Decreased exposure results in decreased blood flow and the end result is an end to those allergic shiners.  The cosmetic company won’t be happy because you won’t be using so much concealer, but your true beauty will shine through – shiner free.

When you face the day with uncontrolled allergies you head out armed with a plethora of tissues and an emergency backup hankie.  All in an effort to hold back the relentless tide of nasal discharge, watery eyes, and coughing that makes you look like a walking biological terrorist.  Those allergic shiners probably don’t help either (or the fact that you are grumpy and sleepy).

Tired of explaining that you aren’t spreading the plague but just have allergies?  Instead of defending your allergies, vanquish them.  Protect yourself with an Allergy Store mattress cover.  Put a protective barrier between you and the allergens that are determined to ruin your reputation.

Instead of drowning in a sea of snot each morning, awaken symptom-free.  Leave the tissues for when you really have a cold.   Instead of getting the stink eye from fellow commuters and co-workers get smiles. People will appreciate better you.

How Your Dust Mite Cover Should Fit?

We get lots of questions from people trying to decide what size dust mite cover to buy for their mattresses.  Over the months, I have written lots about the different fabrics, but I don’t think I have ever addressed how the dust mite cover should fit.

How Should It Fit?

There is a misconception that the cover needs to fit tightly.  Actually, the opposite is true.  If you try to put a too-small cover on a too-large mattress you will put stress on the seams and the zipper closure.  Those are the weakest points in your line of defense against dust mites.  You don’t want any strain or stress on those seams or zippers.  So, your dust mite cover should fit loosely and not tight at all.

How Do You Measure the Depth?

Most people know what “size” their mattress is (queen, king, twin, full, etc) but they are not sure of the depth of the mattress.  To measure the depth of your mattress, you need to strip the bed down.  That means removing all the bedding, including the sheets and any mattress pad you might keep on the bed.

Get down at eye level with the mattress (only measure the mattress for depth, do not include the box spring in the depth measurement) and measure from the top seam to the bottom seam.  If you have a pillow-top mattress, take the measurement in several places.

Round Up or Round Down?

Round that measurement up to determine the proper depth mattress cover to purchase.

For example, if your mattress measures 10″ deep, you want the 12″ deep cover.  While you might be able to stretch and tug to get a 9″ cover on that 10″ mattress, chances are you are going to stress the seam or tear out the zipper in your attempt.

While the 12″ cover will give you a little extra fabric, it does not affect the dust mite protection of the zippered mattress cover.  Just take that little bit of extra fabric and tuck it between the mattress and the box spring.  Your fitted sheet will hold it in place.

Properly sized, your dust mite mattress cover will last for years and give you night after night of protection.  So make sure your dust mite cover fits right.
