Allergy Armor Advanced Pillow Covers Customer Q & A

Allergy Armor Advanced Pillow Covers Product Details
Q1: I see that Allergy Armor Advance has same protection against dust mites as the AAUltra, but AAUltra offers better protection against cat dander. I do not have a cat, but I do have a dog. What size is dog dander? "Allergy Armor Advanced has an average pore size of less than 6 microns, whereas Allergy Armor Ultra has an average pore size of less than 3 microns. Therefore, while both fabrics provide complete protection against dust mite allergen, Allergy Armor Ultra offers better protection against smaller allergens like cat dander." Thank you.

A: The size of dog dander, like that of cat, can vary some, but samples of the air from homes with dogs have shown that about half of all the dog dander in the air is attached to particles larger than ten microns. Another 20% or so is typically attached to particles roughly five microns in size or smaller. So the majority of dander carrying particles for dogs often fall in the 5 micron and larger range while for cats the low end of the spectrum is around 1 micron with a large chunk of that sitting around 3 microns. For dogs, Allergy Armor Ultra avg. 2.8, Allergy Armor Cotton avg. 3.9 or even Organic avg. 4.7 would work best. For that matter, Bed Bug and Classic would also be alternatives as both have the urethane lining that gives them an average pore size of zero. Hope that helps!

Q2: We wash our sheets every weekend and I love to use fabric softener for that "Downy fresh" smell when we climb into bed at night. Why can't I use fabric softener with any of the Allery Armor products?

A: Using fabric softener won't effect the performance of the Allergy Armor. In general, we simply recommend that since a fair number of the people who use these products those with allergies, asthma, COPD, MCS and other respiratory conditions are generally sensitive to those types of fragrances. However, if you've no problem with fabric softeners and have always used them, there's no reason why you shouldn't continue!

Q3: I have a snoozer upper body pillow. Does this pillow cover fit that pillow?

A: No. The Snoozer pillows all have that unique "J" shape to them while the Allergy Armor Body pillow covers are meant for straight body pillows that lack the curve.
