How to Care For Your Encasings


While sheets and other linens should be washed regularly in hot water or with an allergen-removing laundry detergent, Allergy Control encasings need only be washed once a year or when soiled. When changing bed linens, you should gently vacuum or lightly wipe the encasing clean to remove surface allergens.

To care for your encasing, please follow the instructions below:

Allergy Control COTTON PERFORMANCE, Pristine COMPLETE and COTTON PURE Encasings:

  • Machine Wash HOT on Permanent Press
  • Non-chlorine Bleach can be used when needed
  • Wash with Zipper Open
  • Tumble Dry on Permanent Press Setting
  • Do Not Iron (Pristine COMPLETE). Iron, Low Setting (COTTON PERFORMANCE or COTTON PURE)
  • Do Not Dry Clean

NOTE: If you have a bed bug problem and have covered your bedding in a COTTON PERFORMANCE or a Pristine COMPLETE Encasing, then do not remove the encasings for at least 18 months. Bed bugs can lie dormant for up to 18 months, and they will resurface if the encasing is removed too early. An encasing can help prevent bed bugs from infesting your bed as a preventative step. The encasing can also contain bed bugs in encased bedding if a problem arises. If you experience a bed bug infestation, additional steps and professional services designed to eradicate bed bugs will likely be necessary to remove these pests from your home.

The above care instructions also apply to all Allergy Control fabric-based encasings purchased in the past (non-membrane encasings).


Allergy Control Micro Protection Encasings:

  • Machine Wash HOT
  • No Bleach
  • Wash with Zipper Open
  • Drip Dry
  • Do Not Iron

The above care instructions also apply to other Allergy Control membrane-style encasings purchased in the past.

* STORE all encasings with zipper open and in a safe place, out of reach of children.
* Proper care of the encasing in accordance with these care instructions is required for coverage under our warranty.
