Why use a pillow protector?
Pillow protectors may not be the most exciting item to shop for, although they add life and enhance the cleanliness of your pillow.
Luxury linens are an investment. And just like any other investment, you should take necessary measures to protect it.
Pillow protectors keep your sleeping pillows cleaner

Pillows become stained and yellow because of body oil and drool that that winds up seeping through the pillowcase and directly onto the pillow.
