CleanRest Ultra

Allergy Blocking Bedding

Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite

Nothing beats climbing into bed after a long, hard day – unless allergies have you sneezing and wheezing when you should be snoozing. It’s a unsettling fact that allergens like pollen, mold spores and dust collect in bedding. Even more disturbing? Dust mites can colonize your mattress and pillows by the billions. Forget the monster under your bed. It’s the monsters inside your bedding that are really scary.

CleanRest inventor Gary Goldberg decided to find a solution after his son was diagnosed with asthma triggered by a
severe allergy to dust mites. Gary, a third-generation textile scientist, developed a fabric called MicronOne. The fabric has an extremely tight weave that blocks anything larger than one micron from passing through. There’s no plastic feel, like a lot of allergy-blocking materials, yet the fabric still keeps dust mites and their itchy ilk from penetrating.

Carolyn B., a friend of Daily Grommet, first told us about these CleanRest Ultra pillows, pillow covers and mattress encasements made with MicronOne. CleanRest uses hypoallergenic fill in its pillows, and the fabric is water-resistant and washable. For the college-bound population, CleanRest offers an extra-long twin mattress cover that’s a perfect fit for dormitory mattresses, so you can make sure your college student has the healthiest sleep possible. At home or away at school, we all deserve to cuddle in and enjoy a good night’s rest, sneeze- and wheeze-free.

    .....let's not make too much noise, hopefully there are people resting. Either way, I am happy to be your guide for the day through the mystery and necessity of one of our body's most powerful self healing states, "sleep." So say "goodbye" to dust mites, bed bugs, mold spores, and pet dander and say "hello" to clean healthy rejuvenating sleep every night by trying our CleanRest(r) products featuring MicronOne(r) technology. I have spent years perfecting our patented fabric technology which I originally designed to help our young child overcome his allergies to dust mite waste. At CleanRest(r) we feel that everyone deserves the dignity of a clean night's rest, let's chat.

    I've heard a lot about all the bad stuff in pillows, but I'm confused about how it gets there in the first place? In other words are these mites in all pillows, but with your fabric technology the bad stuff just can't get out?

    Anna, dust mites are the single largest allergic trigger world wide, they exist in almost every home regardless of how neat or clean you are. They live off of the protein that we as humans leave behind, like our dead skin cells, and over time they can colonize in certain textile items, like an ant farm in a box of sand, dust mites colonize in your pillow. They leave their droppings behind after eating and that becomes the allergic trigger. Using MicronOne fabric prevents the intial colonization of the stuffed textile item so the mites dont have a chance to infest the pillow and create the build up of allergens.

    Are these machine washable? how do you recommend drying them? Does this have an effect over time at how efficiently the pillow fabric blocks allergens?

  • Gary
    Gary – Special Guest
    7/27/10 12:01 PM

    All of our CleanRest products are designed to be what I call, "Mom Tough" and what I mean by that is you can launder them as you would any other standard bedding item. This product is fully machine washable and can be tumble dried. We have laundered all of our MicronOne fabrics in excess of 100 cycles at 140 degrees (f) which is far hotter than your home hot water tank. After this test we measure allergen blocking performance and have no lessening of protection. I wouldn't want anything less for my family.

    Dan, this would be a good first step to evaluating your sensitivity to dust mite allergen. If you find that your waking up less stuffed up and your scratchy throat feels better chances are your bedding was making you sick. Best of luck, sleep well.

    There are two things, beyond the obvious, that I love about this product:

    First, I can wrap my brain around the fabric 'technology' - it simply makes sense. The fabric is so dense that it's impenetrable to the bad guys. Got it!

    Second, usually you expect to pay a high premium for products that outperform the standard product in a significant way. You were able to keep these at a reasonable pricepoint!

    I know that I have pillows hanging around that should be retired and this is just the push I need to do so!

    I'm one of those practical shoppers who runs in and just grabs the softest pillow off the shelf in HomeGoods. Never really looked at it as something I should put a lot of thought into. Have to say that I like that there's a real reason, and a real person, a family behind this pillow. You've made me think twice about what's growing ... living!! .. in my pillows at home.

    By the way, just heard that Dr. Oz did a show today about hidden health risks in your home, including dust mites -and his #1 recommendation is to use products that protect your pillows and mattresses from dust mites. Thanks for keeping us safe CleanRest!!

  • Katherine

    7/27/10 12:01 PM

    @Jeanne, what a fun coincidence. I just went to Dr. Oz's site and this is what he says:

    "Use products that protect your pillows and mattresses from dust mites. Their excrement, which totals two pounds every two years in pillows, can lead directly to asthma. You can obtain 1-micron pore sheets and pillowcases that filter the air in to keep the microdust from the organisms out."

    That sounds like a direct endorsement for CleanRest products!

    Hi, not sure if this discussion is continuing, but I have a question. I am coincidentally about to purchase allergen bedding for my daughter who is 4 and has a severe allergy to dust mites. I’ll probably do the same for the whole family since now that I’m educated, I’m totally grossed out! ;) Our physician gave us a catalogue from a company called Mission: Allergy and recommended their pillows and encasements. How does the MirconOne product compare? It seems more affordable and also it seems to have tighter fabric weave (not sure if that’s the proper way to describe). It seems their products range from 2 to 6 microns. Am I comparing apples to apples? Can you provide any clarifying information? I really want to make the proper decision to help her, regardless of cost. Thanks so much.

    @Christine - even after a Grommet's feature day, the conversation is still open and the products are still available for purchase. We will let Gary know that there is a question here for him to answer! Thanks for stopping by.

  • Gary
    Gary – Special Guest
    7/27/10 12:01 PM

    Christine, great question!

    I am familiar with the Mission Allergy products, and yes our MicronOne technology does in fact make our product different and more effective. What you will typically see when you review other products in the market is that they refer to their pore sizes as AVERAGE, not MAXIMUM. Here is the issue with averages, they are made up of many measurements and do not disclose what the largest pore size is or how the pores of different sizes are distributed. So while they may have an average of 2-6 etc, they may also have 10-15% of their pores which are 20 microns or larger, these pores are where you get into trouble allowing dust mite waste to pass thru. (remember dust mite waste is about 2-4 microns large) CleanRest products have a Maximum pore size of 1 Micron, too small to allow micro-toxins to pass thru. This is what I have spent the last 5 years of my life perfecting and I am glad that concerned parents like yourself can enjoy the fruits of my labor, also, my kids are glad too. You should also consider getting mattress encasements as well.

    #2 What is the difference between your 2 pillows~original micro 1 & ultra allergy blocking??

  • Gary
    Gary – Special Guest
    7/27/10 12:01 PM

    Katherine --

    1)The box spring encasement is recommended for severe allergy sufferers for the maximum in allergen resistance and protection.

    Most individuals realize a benefit just through the use of mattress and pillow protectors (or replacement stuffed pillows).

    2)The Original CleanRest pillow vs the CleanRest Ultra pillow is primarily a cosmetic one. The original pillows have a two sets of blue piping surrounding them. The ultra pillow is a loftier pillow as

    Gary,

    I just purchased your Clean Rest Ultra Allergen Blocking Pillow at Bed, Bath and Beyond, as well as the matching pillow encasement. Although your product is geared towards allergy sufferers, I am fortunate enough to not suffer from these debilitating symptoms. I am sleeping on your new materials because I heard about your innovative type of 1- Micron product from the Dr. Oz program during a "Three Ways to Look Younger" segment. It was the #1 practice to adopt to prevent wrinkles, ahead of moisturizer and sunblock... and this was enough for me to take the plunge! I look forward to the results.

    Thank you very much for making beauty within the shuteye of the beholder possible

    Gary,

    It looks like these comments were from a few weeks ago. I just purchased your Ultra Allergy Blocking pillow from Bed Bath Beyond today. I'm extremely allergic to dust mites and also have asthma. Your pillows/encasements with a pore size of 1 micron sounds like the perfect product for an extreme allergy sufferer as myself. My question is that I bought a Tempurpedic mattress set a year ago. I would like to encase both the mattress & tempurpedic box underneath (as I hear that despite the mite resistant claims of the tempurpedic mattress, they still can live in the mattress, just not breed, or feed?). I'm not sure you offer encasements that will fit the size, or are breathable (as needed by the foam). Do you offer this type? and if so, where can I buy it? Thanks so much,

    Nicole

    I, too, have a young son with asthma (dust mite allergy). We already had Clean Sleep pillow covers before finding this out. We bought a new bed and have it completely encased in the Clean Sleep stuff (by coincidence).

Is there anything more rewarding for a parent than to know that your child is well, or even better that you are doing something to improve their wellness? I designed our award winning MicronOne® technology to help our son manage his allergic response to dust mites and their waste, that was almost 7 years ago, today there are literally hundreds of thousands of people that rely on CleanRest® pillows to help protect their sleep by preventing the transmission of dust mite waste, mold spore, pet dander and other micro-toxins that occur in almost every home. So before you hit the sack, or send someone off to bed, consider upgrading your pillows and bedding to the Worlds Cleanest Pillow, featuring MicronOne technology.

    I'm STILL mystified the by the whole dust mite issue. When your covers are put on items that are already infested with mites and their feces, then the cover keeps both the mites and their waste UNDER the cover, correct? Do the mites then die, or do they continue to breed and keep eating all the skin cells that were already in the mattress, etc.? Then, even with the cover on, we continue to shed skin cells, but now they are on TOP of the cover, between our sheets, in our blankets, where I would assume more mites gather to feed. The mites don't originally come from inside the mattress, but are attracted from the outside by the "feast," correct? So wouldn't a whole new group/tribe/colony of mites now feast on top of the cover? Can you explain how just covering up the ones already present ends the whole problem? This has mystified me for years, and it sounds like Gary is someone who really CAN explain it! Thanks!

    7/28/10 11:48 AM

  • Gary
    Gary – Special Guest
    7/28/10 12:39 PM

    Let's demystify the situation, allow me to "shed" no pun intended some light on the topic. When thinking about dust mites and their colonization and waste building habits your assumptions and thoughts are spot on, the build up will re-occur on the outermost layer as time goes on. However I would like you to think about two more dimensions to the discussion: 1 concentration of allergens or parts per million, and 2 Laundering.

    Regarding concentration, each allergy sufferer has their own unique threshold for tolerating exposure to dust mite waste, some are super sensitive and some are moderately sensitive, that being said, the concentration of allergen that builds up over time deep within the mattress over years and years only becomes greater and greater. Even after you put a CleanRest(r) encasement on! Mites will continue to breed and thrive, unaware that they have been shut out of the hopes and dreams of our expansive and normal world. On the outside layer, think of it as a brand new mattress, it has far less mites on the surface and the amount of waste or allergen will be far less than that which has been building up over time. It's fresher, cleaner, less poo-ed upon.

    Now, we recommend that our products are laundered about 3 times per year, this will reset the outer most layer to fresh and clean, our MicronOne(r) fabrics resist infestation and clean very well, so build up of allergens come of quite easily. This will allow you to dramatically reduce if not eliminate any exterior allergen build up.

    Does that help solve the mystery and or answer your question? If not let me know and I can see if Shaggy and Scooby have some free time today to further investigate.

    Sleep well.

    Loved the pun, intended or not! And let me add a few of my own. Thanks so much for your answer...it "covers" what I've been wondering about. But it still CREEPS ME OUT that those little "buggers" are quietly going about their business like "undercover" agents. Is there any way to at least make a dent in their population in the mattress before putting a lid on it (Other than buying a new mattress, which just isn't in the budget at the moment)? Have you guys thought about inventing something we can spray on first that might help kill 'em?

    Yes, there are/is products/product that I found at a Southern States store in Richmond VA, when a friend of mine was trying to rid his bed (and other furniture) of an infestation of bed bugs! The stuff was a spray in a fairly large container and it, plus another product that went with it, cost about $90! But, it DID work, for a WHILE and then the little "buggers" (LOL) came back. My question is, does your product work on bed bugs? At the beginning of the description bed bugs were mentioned, but no mention later; mainly dust mites. A response would be greatly appreciated, as my friend does not want to have to get another bed either!

    A girl asked about using this product with memory foam and was told to use the mattress encasement with AirFlow Technology MicronOne Fabric. I don't know how to decipher it from the others. Is the one sold here on the grommet able to be used on memory foam? We have tiny bugs, not sure of what kind that infested our old mattress and memory foam, but would like to cover it so they can't get out or in. We live and work in China, and are currently without a bed, so need to know pronto so we can order this and have it sent over with a friend. Thanks!
