We need to tackle a sensitive subject here folks. Its about those horrid little dust mites that are living in our homes with us, particularly in the bedroom which is the perfect spot for them.
Scary thing about them is that they are so tiny that you can’t see them without a microscope. And really, you don’t want to because they are not a pretty sight. What we do know for certain is that every home, no matter how hygienic it is, harbours these pests. They live off dead, shed human cells (skin) and the sheddings of man’s best friend (the one who sneaks onto the bed the moment you turn your back).
They love to make their homes in upholstered furnishings, mattresses and rugs but their number 1 accommodation choice is – your pillow. Here’s a truly yucky fact – 10% of the weight of a 2 year old pillow can be composed of dead mites and their droppings. And just to think; you put your head on it to rest every night
It is this little known fact that prompted ePromo to launch their new Bamboo pillow. One of the properties of bamboo is that it has natural, aggressive anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. Dust mites plain don’t like bamboo fibre and that’s why we love it! Both the cover and the inner of this supremely comfortable pillow are washable so you can make double-sure you’re not sharing your pillow with any unwanted guests. Bonus – this pillow stays cool in the warm weather and cozy warm in winter.
