The Barrier Materials are on the Way

Today we placed orders for 7 different types of barrier cloths to test. 

  • 100% Organic Cotton

  • 100% Cotton

  • 60% Cotton/40% Polyester Blend

  • 100% Polyester

  • 100% Stretch Knit Polyester Laminated to a Urethane Lining

  • 50% Cotton/50% Polyester Laminated to a Urethane Lining

  • Silk Barrier with a Cotton Cover

All of the products are advertised as being effective for dust mites and other allergens, but none of them specifically mention mold. If you are aware of any mattress covers that are being advertised specifically for mold, please let us know by sending us a message by clicking the "Ask a Question" button.

We have increased the number of barrier materials that we want to test from five to seven, which means our Phase II funding goal is being increased to $2100.

Thank you for your support!
