Luxury Linens Go Healthy
As a life-long allergy sufferer I was delighted to learn that Cuddledown, a luxury linen retailer, will be marketing “down comforters, bedding and other home fashions that are certified by Oeko-Tex to ensure that they are free from harmful levels of dangerous chemicals”. I am incredibly sensitive to a variety of natural and synthetic products and must use the utmost care when purchasing items that will be in close proximity to my skin. In the past linens for allergy sufferers and those sensitive to certain chemicals were less than desirable. A high thread count or an elegant style were rarely to be found. However it now appears that we sensitive allergy sufferers will finally be at peace with our healths and our bedroom decor thanks to Cuddledown because according to HomeTextiles Today:
Cuddledown recently introduced a line of mattress and pillow protectors that are Oeko-Tex certified.The Anti Bed-Bug Mattress Protector and Pillow Protector are made with all-natural wool infused with natural botanical extracts including lavender, lemon, eucalyptus, and chrysanthemum. The protectors do not simply repel bed bugs but have been proven in lab tests to actually kill them, according to Cuddledown. The protectors are also effective against dust mites.The fiber treatment will eliminate bed bugs for up to five years and dust mites for up to ten.
” all-natural wool infused with natural botanical extracts including lavender, lemon, eucalyptus, and chrysanthemum” I for one am impressed and looking forward to replacing my old anti-dust mite mattress and pillow protectors with these products from Cuddledown.
