Pillow is an important part of bedding. It ropes the upper body and alleviates the pressure while sleeping or lying. Depending on sleeper’s choice, pillows are ballooned with different material which are generally soft and recover shape immediately. Different types of filling for pillows include polyester, memory foam, Styrofoam bead, natural cotton, natural cotton, and natural latex.
Sleepers who look for reasonably priced pillow stuffing can opt for polyester filling pillows. They are made from man-made plastic and polyester filling can last up to two years. Its value of filling depends on the quantity of threads. Pillows filled with polyester must be regularly cleaned, because polyester tends to absorb sweat and facial oil.
If you want the fillings for bean bag, you can prefer Styrofoam beads. Just like other pillow fillings, Styrofoam beads are very gentle on the neck and back and adapt to its shape. Because this type of filling is synthetic, it is known as hypoallergenic. Support pillows which are filled with Styrofoam beads can easily be washed and are very light to carry.
These days, people are looking for green pillows that help not only their health, but also the environment. These pillows are usually filled with natural or organic cotton mixed with wool batting to remain soft.
Memory foams have hundreds of holes providing adequate air circulation and reducing moisture collection. It is visco-elastic and provides greatest support. Because microbes cannot flourish in foam and memory foams are hypoallergenic. Memory foam is frequently used on anti-reflux and tail bone pillows for pressure reduction.
