Getting a good night’s sleep can be a challenge – there’s so much still to get done, you have so much on your mind and you can’t shake the feeling that your forgot to do something important.  For allergy sufferers it’s even harder.  According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, dust mites are the most common cause of allergies from house dust.

How could something so small cause such misery?  These teeny tiny bugs will make themselves quite comfortable in your pillows and mattresses. They also love to make their home in carpeting and even upholstery.

If you have allergies, you’ve probably already heard all of this.  Allergist will routinely recommend that you rip out the wall-to-wall carpet and invest in pillow and mattress covers.

According to Good Housekeeping, “Allergy doctors say that the only kind of allergy barrier bedding that benefits allergy sufferers are those that completely encase the mattress, pillow, and box spring.” The folks at Good Housekeeping have evaluated a number of products for performance and durability. They’ve also put the over-the-counter claims you see in television commercials to the test – you can check out their round up of the best tested allergy-control products.
