Spring is near (great!), but so is allergy season (not so great). If you live in certain parts of the country, you’ve probably already been feeling it for weeks now. You can’t get rid of allergies forever, sadly, but you can make sure the products you use in your everyday life don’t contribute to sneezing, itching, and red eyes. The best place to start with allergy-proofing your life: your bed! You spend eight hours up close and personal with your bedding every night, so it’s worth buying comforters and pillows that won’t irritate your eyes and sinuses even more. We rounded up some of the best bedding for people with allergies so you can get a good night’s rest, even when the pollen count is high.

SafeRest Premium Mattress Protector

We’ve all heard of (and maybe seen) all the gross stuff that can get in mattresses over the years. Dust, dirt, sweat, bacteria, and more pile up, and that can worsen your allergies—not to mention shorten your mattress’s life span. Keep that bad stuff away for less than $30 with this mattress protector. It has a hypoallergenic cotton terry surface that protects against mites, bacteria, and more while a membrane back coating keeps your mattress safe from perspiration and other fluids.

The Company Store Company Cotton Comforter Protector

You don’t have to buy a new comforter when allergies hit. Just put this allergen-blocking cover over your existing comforter, and you’re good to go. The cover’s material is so tightly woven that it essentially forms an anti-allergen barrier that blocks dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and more from reaching you, but the material is light and breathable to maintain a cool sleeping environment.
