New and Improved Allergy Armor Polartec Fleece BlanketJust in time for winter, we're rolling out the new and improved Allergy Armor fleece blankets. You may remember the original microfleece blankets. While both the original and the our latest versions were both Polartec fleece, there are several differences between them, not the least of which is the our new blankets are less expensive than before!

Why are they less expensive? There are two main reasons for this. First, the fabric itself is a big reason why we dropped the price. Polartec was finally able to supply us with fabric that was wide enough to eliminate any seams in our blankets. This means they not only look better, but they are quicker and easier for us to sew for you. The other reason is that we simply purchased more raw materials. Larger volume = lower price.

So what are the other differences between these blankets? Aside from the fact that king and queen sizes no longer have seams, there is now an additional color to choose from, so currently your choices are Ivory, Navy, and Light Blue. All are available in Twin, Queen and King sizes. The fabric itself is actually thicker than before. Polartec has long been the leader in American made fleece and textiles built for warmth, and the Polartec 200 fleece is no different. Allergy Armor Polartec Fleece Blanket Now Available in Navy, Ivory, and Light BlueWhile it is still super lightweight, the slightly thicker fleece feels more plush, even after several washes. The way we sew them has also changed. Now each blanket features a hemmed edge for extra durability. So overall, you're getting a better product, with several upgrades, for less money.

There are a few features that have remained the same. First, we use only Polartec fleece, made right here in the U.S.A. Check the tag on the fleece you see in your big box store, and I will almost guarantee you won't see "Made in the USA" on it. Second, each blanket is handcrafted and packaged here in our Atlanta location then shipped to you. Next, all of our Polartec blankets are machine wash and dry. This is important for people with allergies or asthma, as washing your bedding more frequently and in hot water is key to reducing dust mites. Lastly, each blanket won't pill, water resistant, and 6" longer than comparable fleece blankets. So warm up this winter with our new and improved Allergy Armor Polartec blanket!

One of our favorite companies, Ogallala Comfort Company, is in the midst of a makeover! Ogallala will be changing their fill for their hypodown bedding. Currently they have a blend of 80% goose down and 20% Syriaca used in their mattress pads, pillows and comforters. With an increase in availability of Syriaca, the silky milkweed seed parachutes, the blend will now become 70% goose down and 30% Syriaca. This makeover also includes an addition of bedding products made with high quality white duck down. All of these changes will ultimately bring down the prices for consumers.

If you looked at prices around the turn of the year, you might have noticed a HUGE price increase! Trust us, we were just as upset over that as you were. With the price of down dramatically increasing, they adjusted their prices up to compensate. Needless to say, people weren't very happy about this, so from the pricing you would have seen around New Year's there has been about a 40% reduction.

Ogallala Pearl Crescent Down ComforterOgallala has been a mainstay at AchooAllergy for over a decade. As the highest quality, luxury bedding available, Ogallala offers custom bedding options that are nearly unmatched. For people dealing with allergies or asthma, their blend of Syriaca and pure goose down (no feathers), has allowed them to offer and stand by a very attractive guarantee. For ten years, your Ogallala bedding will NOT cause an allergic reaction. Reactions to bird feathers is a very common one, and low quality down can often cause sneezing, congestion, or coughing and wheezing in asthmatics, but not Ogallala's Hypodown.

Prices across our Ogallala bedding offering have been adjusted, so if high prices a few months ago scared you away, it is probably worth taking a second look now!

A Bedbug resting peacefully, ugh!These days it seems like everyone is on the attack against the investment banking industry. It looks like bedbugs have joined the fray and possibly have invaded the Goldman Sachs building. With bedbugs, you always can count on two things. These critters do not discriminate, and it is very costly to exterminate them.

Last week on the Top Stocks blog at MSN Money, writer Elizabeth Strott posted about a report that Goldman Sachs brought in bedbug-sniffing dogs and exterminators for their 42-story office building. According to Strott, bedbugs have become a big problem in New York City. Bedbugs are tiny, reddish-brown insects that attack at night and feed on the blood of humans. Clean up costs for an infestation can reach $5,000 for a single family home.

In our blog and at our company, we have been talking about the rising bed bug problem in the U.S. for several years. One of our former employees had a nasty encounter with bedbugs in Las Vegas. In response, we have developed our Allergy Armor Bed Bug bedding to help combat the menace. These mattress covers are designed to trap the bedbugs in the mattress.

No one can argue that a good night's sleep is paramount to good health and feeling good. As any allergy sufferer knows, nights plagued by sneezing, itchy eyes, and a stuffy nose are anything but restful.

While allergy relief bedding goes a long way in helping to alleviate the disturbed sleep caused by allergies, what many don't know is that what's beneath the bedding could be causing problems as well.

Mattresses actually may contain components that make it hard for some people to get a good night's sleep - and may even be making some people sick. Allergy sufferers are often sensitive to chemicals, and some may experience a condition known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (which can affect non-allergic individuals as well). Typical mattresses contain many synthetic materials and chemicals, such as fire retardants, that are toxic.

Enter Royal-Pedic Mattresses, custom-made the old fashioned way out of the finest natural ingredients, including natural latex and lamb's wool, which act as dust mite repellants. Not only are Royal-Pedic mattresses hypoallergenic, but they also offer superior orthopedic support.

Organic Mattresses are also an excellent choice for those with allergies or Multiple Chemical Sensitivities - or anyone who desires a safe, non-toxic bed. Free of chemicals, synthetic fabrics, and other potentially harmful materials present in mainstream mattresses, our NAOMI (National Association of Organic Mattress Industry)-compliant organic mattresses are sure to give you countless nights of healthy, comfortable sleep.
Healthy mattresses offer allergy-free, comfortable nights for better sleep.

Dust MiteThe Handyman Glenn Haege writes in The Detroit News that a 1,500 square foot home generates 40 pounds of dust in a year, and bigger homes generate even more dust.

Haege highlights several interesting facts about dust mites:

  • Each of us sheds about one-fifth of an ounce of dead skin a week.

  • Human and pet skin flakes are the prime food of dust mites.

  • Ten percent of the weight of the average 2-year-old pillow is dead dust mites and their droppings.

  • Dust mites and their droppings are not harmless. According to an article at NewScientist.com by John Pickrell, their fecal matter contains enzymes that break down human skin.

  • Every time you move or the furnace goes on, dust mites and broken bits of their bodies and their droppings are whooshed into the air. You breathe them into your lungs and eat them day and night.

  • Our indoor atmosphere is often two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.

  • Humidity control, air exchange, filtration and cleaning are primary defenses against indoor air pollution.
When it comes to your mattress and pillows, there's no better protection against dust mites than Allergy Armor allergy relief bedding.
