How it Works:
Pristine® fabrics are constructed of very tightly woven yarns, specially selected to give the best balance of softness, comfort, and color fastness. A unique finishing process allows these finely-textured yarns to create extremely small pores in the fabrics. These micro-pores allow air and moisture vapor to pass through, but are small enough to form a barrier to dust, dust mites, and associated allergens. Pristine® fabrics are not coated, laminated or otherwise given any finish that can come off during use.
you wake up in the morning with itchy, watery eyes, nasal stuffiness,
runny nose, and in some cases asthma you may be allergic to dust
mites and their allergens. These allergic reactions to dust mite allergens can be a year round problem.
Dust mites live in pillows, mattresses, comforters, carpeting and upholstery.
These dust mite covers
provide a barrier for up to 99.95% of mites and their allergens.
They also protect you from mold spores that may exist in your camp
or vacation home bedding.
Care of: Machine wash and dry up to 140 degrees. Can also be hung to dry to extend product life.
