Dust Mite Quilt Protectors - FAQs

Do dust mite quilt protectors really work?

Dust mite duvet protectors create a barrier against dust mites

Dust mite duvet covers serve as a protective barrier, effectively separating you from dust mites. Enclosing your duvet with these covers prevents dust mites from making direct contact with your skin. This protective layer diminishes the likelihood of allergic responses, including itching, sneezing, and breathing difficulties, by minimising your exposure to dust mite allergens.

Duvet protectors trap dust mite allergens

Dust mite allergens are found in their feces and body fragments. These microscopic particles become airborne and can easily be inhaled, triggering allergic responses. By covering your duvet with a protector, you effectively trap these allergens, preventing them from dispersing into the air and reducing their presence in your sleeping environment. This reduction in allergen levels can significantly alleviate your allergy symptoms.

Dust mite quilt protectors can improve sleep quality

Allergies can disrupt your sleep, leading to restless nights and fatigue during the day. By using mattress, pillow, and duvet protectors, you create a clean and allergen-free sleeping environment. 

What are dust mite doona protectors?

Dust mite quilt protectors are specially designed encasements that fit over your duvet (or quilt) to entrap dust mites. These encasements are made from tightly woven fabric that prevents mites and their allergens from penetrating the duvet or from escaping from the quilt. The pore size of the fabric is so small that dust mites, which feed on dead skin cells shed by humans and thrive in warm, humid environments like bedding, cannot pass through it.

The primary purpose of dust mite duvet covers is to create a barrier between the sleeper and potential allergens, reducing the risk of allergic reactions such as sneezing, itchy eyes, and asthma. These protectors are particularly beneficial for individuals with dust mite allergies, providing a cleaner, healthier sleep environment.

Best quilt for dust mite allergy

Finding the perfect hypoallergenic duvet can be challenging. However, individuals with dust mite allergies can use a quilt protector to encase any quilt, rather than selecting a specific type of quilt.

These protectors are crafted from tightly woven fabric that serves as a barrier against dust mites and their allergens, making any quilt safe for use by allergy sufferers. This method offers flexibility and ensures protection, regardless of the material. Dust mite quilt covers are not only effective but also convenient, as they are removable and machine washable, allowing for easy maintenance and a consistently allergen-free sleeping environment.

How to wash dust mite duvet protectors

Launder your duvet protector at temperatures of 60 degrees Celsius or below. If necessary, you can tumble dry on a warm setting. Use regular detergent for washing.

It's beneficial for the duvet cover to remain on the bed for extended periods. When it's time to wash, take the duvet to the laundry area and remove the cover there, leaving the duvet itself unsealed during the wash. After washing, reseal the quilt in the laundry area before returning the encased quilt to the bedroom. Avoid leaving the quilt unsealed while on the bed.
