SmartSilk, Sleep Allergen-Free

Think you can sleep allergen-free with SmartSkilk? Not to freak you out … ok, this might just creep you out, but it’s true and you need to hear this.

Even if you sleep alone, you’re really not. And, I’m not talking about not letting your toes peek from the covers in case of monsters, but the real TRUE critters in your bed. Millions of microscopic dust mites! And don’t think because you routinely wash your bedding, that you are mite-free. The average human sloughs off 1/3 ounce (10 grams) of dead skin a week, and that’s mite-food. Yep, living in your bedding and pillows, muching away on your skin waste. *shudder*

Besides being a disgusting thought, dust mites are a major cause of asthma and allergies, most affecting children and the elderly. I never thought of myself as having these allergies, yet most days {especially in the winter} I do wake up with a stuffy nose. Eww.

The best way to combat the mites is to remove allergens from the home. One easy way to directly make that change is with SmartSilk products. This Canadian company has a full range of bedding products that protect people from dust mite allergens. Their products are the first and only all natural bedding to be certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma Society of Canada.

I recently got two SmartSilk  Pillows for review, and was pleased to learn that they have some very attractive qualities

  • All natural polyester micro gel fiber filling
  • All natural silk fill liner
  • All natural cotton outer shell
  • Moisture wicking properties help to reduce effects of night sweats
  • Keeps your skin moisturized
  • Water repellent non-woven material
  • Breathable materials: no longer need to flip the pillow around looking for a cool spot

I decided to test the new pillows on hubby when they arrived. On the bed was the two SmartSilks and two other brands. I asked hubby which 2 pillows were the most comfortable, and after testing each one – he pointed at both SmartSilks. Indeed they are comfortable, hubby even stating, “the best he’s ever tried”. I do notice less stuffiness in the AM, yet I have to fully admit to being a pillow-lover and I do have 2 non-SmartSilks on my bed as well. But, I think it’s worth notting that I choose to lay my head on the SmartSilk each and every night, and wake up on it. As well, I’ve always been a pillow-flipper {Love cold pillows!}, and I have noticed that I don’t flip anymore!

I had surgery this week, and have pretty much been on these pillows for the last 4 days straight. Still comfortable, and at a time like right now – I appreciate that!

SmartSilk products come with a 10 year warranty {on manufacturer defects} and a 60 day, 100% satisfaction money back guarantee. The brand carries mattress pads, duvets, comforters, crib bedding and pillows. Pricing is a little on the higher end, yet if you suffer from allergies and aren’t getting proper sleep, the cost is worth it. We all know how quality of sleep affects all aspects of life, so maybe 2012 is the year you take back your sleep!

  8. My youngest has pretty bad asthma, and his doctor has been recommending that we get these instead of the brand we have now, so I’d choose the Complete Bed Set.

  9. Oh my word, the complete bedding set, for my entire family LOL, both my oldest and I have terrible allergies, these would be so wonderful for us!

  10. I’d like the Smart Silk Complete Bedding Set – that way I don’t have to pick just one 🙂

  11. Okay it sounds like a broken record on here, but i really would love the Complete Bedding Set, in my opinion why change just one part of the bedding when you can do it all 🙂 Great giveaway!

  12. I’d like to try their mattress pad on my oldest son’s bed to see if it helps with his allergies.

  13. I’d like to try the duvet cover too! This would be really useful because of my son’s allergies!

  14. I GFC although I heard a rumor that bloggers are no longer going with it, and switching over to google+ ?

  15. oh and what I like on their site are the mattress protectors, I need to replace two of ours

  16. I would love to try the mattress protector.
    The human body loses a litre of water during sleep.
    If this product can wick it away, many ladies of a certain
    age would be super-happy !

  17. a netbook from their HP Mini 110-3700 PC series! perfect for dragging to the university! x

  18. I’m making a point of trying to choose sleep products which will help in my quest for a great night’s sleep, and I would particularly like to try the SmartSilk™ Mattress Pad on my bed. Thanks for reviewing such beneficial products (and so soon after surgery, too – yikes!).
