I ordered these pillow protectors four and a half years ago and have been using them ever since. Aside from a random stray thread every once in a very long while, I've had no problems with them. I've used them on all our pillows, including our memory foam pillows, laundered them all, and they all come back in great shape. Come to think of it, if my husband doesn't stop me from buying more stuff, I think I might go ahead and order more if they're still available...
For the price you cannot beat the quantity and quality you get. That and the reviews caught my eye at first. When I received the package I did have a very strange "whoops" in my order. I had 11 beautiful white pillow cases and 1 that had a burnt, (urine looking for lack or better wording) large stain in the middle. It was very odd as it was one of the center pillow cases in the stack and none of the others had this. I washed with a little bleach and the stain came out. I chalked it up to "one of those things" and I still wouldn't hesitate to buy more. After washing they are very wrinkled. If this bothers you, I would use the steam setting on the iron. I actually used an ironing spray and it took them right out. They fit the new pillows I just bought perfect. My purpose was that I wanted that extra layer of protection on the pillows as we all know pillows can get stained after time. I am very pleased with these cases. I felt I couldn't quite give them a 5 star but darn close
Although the zipper is not covered by a fold of material, the quality is very good. They washed & dried well, a bit wrinkled but fit snug enough on our standard pillows to look as if they were ironed. The material has a bit of slipperiness to it which makes it easier to place the pillow in. Excellent price compared to other places I have researched Of course, I like that fact that they are good old cotton.
I have very large 10 bedroom oceanfront houses that I rent out on a weekly basis, and at the end of the season, some of my very expensive pillows along with my pillow protectors always seem to be missing. I bought these pillow protectors a few years back and loved them. I wasn't sure when I ordered another pack if I was getting the same ones as I had ordered a few years ago on Overstock.. Was I ever happy when I received them and saw that they were the same protectors. They are so well made and feel so luxurious.
We purchased these to cover pillows we provide in a linens bag to a professional hockey team. After a full season, these protectors have held up beautifully and look like new after being washed. I imagine we will get at least 5 seasons of wear and tear out of these pillow protectors before needing to replace them. Well worth the price!!
