Upon receipt of your new bed bug encasement we suggest washing the encasement with normal household detergent (without bleach additives) and tumble drying on the low heat setting. This helps to soften the protector and remove any packaging odors there might be.
To ensure the maximum life of your bed bug encasement please review the following cleaning instructions below:
Wash with cold to hot water using normal household detergents that do not contain bleach.
Do not use bleach- Using any type of bleach product will destroy the waterproof lining of our protectors.
Do not dry clean- Harsh chemicals used in dry cleaning will damage the waterproof lining of the protector.
It is recommended to tumble dry on low to medium heat together with your bed sheets, towels or other clothing.
Do not dry on high heat. This will damage the waterproof layer of the protector.
Do not iron- This will damage the waterproof lining of the protector
Which way is up on the protector?
The cotton terry cover is the top and the woven waterproof liner is the bottom.
