Easy care - caring for your covers
Yes, MiteGuard covers are easy to care for - there's not much more you have to do...
To keep the allergen levels down in your bedding, do a hot wash of your normal Sheets, Pillow Cases and Duvet Cover every week. You need your hot water to be 60°C to be able to kill Dust Mites. Normal household hot water is usually set to 55°C, so you may need to contact a plumber to by-pass the ‘Tempering Valve’. Alternatively, you could use a front-loading washing machine (which tends to operate at higher temperatures).
Wash your MiteGuard® Covers in hot water (60°C) every 2-3 months. We tell people that you should do a hot wash at the change of every season.
In the meantime, you can vacuum your covers, or wipe them with a damp cloth between washes to keep allergen levels down.
NOTE: The covers will shrink slightly with the hot wash because they are made with natural cotton. To allow for that, we make them slightly 'over-sized' to allow for the shrinkage. And as an added benefit, the oversize will accommodate any slight variations in the sizing of Duvet Inners. Don’t be surprised if the cover seems a little baggy when you use it for the first time.
