The Need for Mattress Pads and Pillow Covers

Pure Parima Egyptian Cotton Sheets

There are few things more important to your health than the ability to get a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, many of us are sleeping on mattresses and pillows that don’t meet our needs. Not only can an unprotected mattress or pillow expose you to dust and germs, but it can also impact your comfort level, causing you to toss and turn rather than rest easily. At Pure Parima, we’re proud to offer a complete line of bedding products, including mattress pads and pillow covers. Keep reading to discover how the right accessories can protect both you and your bed for the long haul.

What Is a Mattress Pad?

If you don’t know what a mattress pad is, then you’re not alone. Still, this product can play a key role in protecting your bed over the long term. A thick piece of material that’s typically quilted, a mattress pad sits between the mattress and sheets. Along with providing extra cushioning and comfort, the best mattress pads protect your mattress from wear and tear while reducing the number of allergens making contact with your skin. Unlike the mattress itself, the pad tends to be washable, so you can run it through the machine when it needs freshening. It’s a great option for individuals looking for some added protection as well as those who don’t want to buy a new mattress just yet.

Benefits of Mattress Pads

From helping regulate temperature to keeping your sheets free of mites and dander, mattress pads offer numerous benefits. Here are just a few reasons to consider adding one to your bed.

Cleanliness and Comfort

Quality mattress pads like the ones available at Pure Parima offer support while you sleep. After all, even the best mattress can lose its structural integrity over time. A mattress pad cushions your body as you rest so you’re less likely to toss and turn or wake up with a stiff neck. Additionally, a mattress pad helps protect the body from dust mites, animal dander, bacteria, sweat, and dirt that can live in your bed. This is particularly valuable for hot sleepers as well as those with asthma, sensitive skin, and allergies. 


Experts report that the average mattress has a lifespan of about eight to 10 years. However, with wear and tear, your mattress can degrade even faster. One of the benefits of using a mattress pad is that you will extend your mattress’s lifespan by protecting it from the natural oils of your body. As a bonus, you can save hundreds or even thousands on the cost of a new mattress.


Everyone’s suffered a mattress snafu at some point in their lives. From pet accidents to spilled glasses of wine or cups of coffee, it’s easy to find yourself in a position where your mattress needs professional cleaning. The right pad can minimize damage while preserving the life of your bed.  

What Is a Pillow Cover?

Of course, it’s not just your mattress that needs a little extra care. As the place where you lay your head every night, your pillows are also prone to dander, dust, and dirt among other harmful substances. While pillowcases do some of the work, a pillow cover is the best way to keep your pillow and skin looking their best.

Benefits of Pillow Covers

Pillow protectors and covers offer numerous benefits. Ask any dermatologist or allergist, and they’ll tell you that pillows are a favorite home for all manner of nasty materials. It’s not uncommon to find dead skin cells, hair, sweat, dust mites, and even insect parts in your pillow. Moreover, these microscopic bugs and germs can trigger allergies, asthma, and other issues that impact your ability to sleep or feel your best. 

The problem is that washing your pillow too frequently can cause damage. In fact, many of the most supportive, neck-cradling pillows can’t be run through the laundry or dried in a machine at all. If you invest in a pillow cover, you can toss it in the washer with your pillowcases and sheets any time you feel the need. The end result is that your pillow lasts longer, your complexion stays clear, and you breathe easily throughout the night.
