Pillow, a sleep tool. It is generally believed that pillows are the stuffing that people use to sleep comfortably. According to modern medical research, the spine of the human body is a straight line when viewed from the front, but a curve with four physiological curves when viewed from the side. In order to protect the normal physiological curvature of the neck and maintain normal physiological activities during sleep, pillows must be used when sleeping. Pillows generally consist of a pillow core and a pillowcase. Pillows consist of a filler material enclosed in a fabric cover or shell. Covers are made of cloth, such as silk, known as the pillow case or pillow slip. Some pillows have a fancier cover called a sham which is closed on all sides and usually has a slit in the back through which the pillow is placed. Rectangular standard bed pillow cases usually do not have zippers, but instead, have one side open all the time. Often, a zippered pillow protector is often placed around standard pillows with the case in turn covering the protector. Fillers are chosen on the basis of comfort, resilience, thermal properties, cost and also for medical and ethical reasons. The most common synthetic fillers are materials derived from polymer fibers, such as polyester and memory foam. Synthetic fillers in general are inexpensive and in the case of memory foam can retain their form longer. Natural fillers have been used since antiquity. The most common are feathers, down, wool, latex, cotton (particularly in India), and buckwheat. More exotic materials have also been used including straw , wood, or stone. Down is usually the softer filler and offer good insulation, but is more expensive due to its relative scarcity. Down has been known to be plucked from live geese, but there are already cruelty-free certifications for down products. In India, traditional pillows are made with kapok, the fluffy, glossy fruit-fibres of the trees Ceiba pentandra and Bombax ceiba.
Latex pillows are made of the sap of rubber trees, and it is impossible to make latex pillows made of 100% pure latex. The latex content of latex pillows on the market is only 80%-97%. Because pure latex cannot achieve coagulation and fluffy effects, it needs to be artificially fermented with safe materials. Latex pillow has the characteristics of natural environmental protection, non-polluting, non-toxic, anti-allergic and so on. Designed according to ergonomic principles, it can effectively promote sleep, effectively prevent snoring, and is suitable for asthma patients. The latex pillow can effectively reduce the static electricity between the human body and the fiber. The honeycomb structure has good air permeability, and quickly dissipates the heat generated by the human body. The most convenient thing about latex pillows is that they can be washed with water. Natural latex pillows are easy to clean by hand. As long as they are dried with a fan after dehydration, or dried in an oven at low temperature, they will never be deformed. They are easy to maintain, foldable, and easy to collect. It is the most comfortable choice for the pursuit of healthy sleep.
A pillow case is something that wraps the pillow under the pillow cover, like a cloth pocket. Pillowcases are an important part of modern pillows. Ancient people did not use pillowcases. They used pillow cores and pillow covers. Modern pillows come in three common one-piece styles, Oxford (with a flat edge) and trim. All three types of pillowcases have an inner seal that secures the pillow, so that there is no need to implement some reinforcement measures on both sides. Cotton, cotton polyester and rayon can all be used to sew pillowcases, but the most comfortable pillowcase material is pure cotton, which is breathable and hygroscopic, and does not irritate the skin. Modern people also like to use silk pillowcases, also known as silk pillowcases. Silk is a good thing and has many reputations such as fiber queen and soft gold. More than 97% of silk is composed of animal protein and rich in 18 kinds of amino acids necessary for the human body. Silk is said to clean and maintain the skin and increase the vitality of skin cells.
A blanket is a swath of soft cloth large enough either to cover or to enfold most of the user's body and thick enough to keep the body warm by trapping radiant body heat that otherwise would be lost through convection. Many types of blanket material, such as wool, are used because they are thicker and have more substantial fabric to them, but cotton can also be used for light blankets. Wool blankets are warmer and also relatively slow to burn compared to cotton. The most common types of blankets are woven acrylic, knitted polyester, mink, cotton, fleece and wool. Blankets also come with exotic crafting and exotic material such as crocheted afghan or a silk covering. The term blanket is often interchanged with comforter, quilt, and duvet , as they all have similar uses.
A towel is a piece of absorbent cloth or paper used for drying or wiping a surface. Towels draw moisture through direct contact. In households, several types of towels are used, such as hand towels, bath towels, and kitchen towels. Paper towels are provided in commercial or office bathrooms via a dispenser for users to dry their hands. They are also used for such duties such as wiping, cleaning, and drying. Bath towel is a cleaning product, which belongs to a type of towel. It is made of cotton fiber and is used to wipe the body, cover the body and keep warm after bathing. Bath towels are made of pure cotton yarn, and are divided into two categories: yarn-woven bath towels and thread-woven bath towels.
Sleep mask refers to a type of mask that is applied to the face and sleeps directly after basic skin care is done at night; it is usually cleaned in the next morning and the face can be washed normally. Generally, sleeping masks are gel or cream textures, which are like a layer of skin care products after applying them. Sleeping mask can also be understood as an upgraded version of cream, which is characterized by leave-on and can be wiped overnight. The principle of sleep mask skin care is: use a thick layer of essence dressing to block the contact between the facial skin and the air, block the evaporation of skin moisture, increase the humidity of the stratum corneum and soften the cuticle; The temperature of the epidermis increases to expand the pores, which is conducive to the smooth absorption of nutrients. After the skin temperature rises, the blood circulation is accelerated, so that the nutrients infiltrated into the skin are spread deeper and wider, and nutrients can be replenished quickly; The water that cannot be evaporated on the surface of the skin will remain in the epidermis. When the water in the epidermis is full, the skin will look smoother and tighter, the fine lines will become lighter, and the whiteness and brightness will be significantly improved.
A picnic blanket, also known as a multi-functional blanket, a cushion, etc., is a flannel (or acrylic) fabric with a waterproof bottom mat configured for a picnic. It can be rolled out at any time outdoors to provide a tidy space for a picnic or leisure. Because it can be folded and stored, it is very convenient to use. It can be used as a picnic bag or as an independent product for outdoor picnics, fitness, children's crawling, beach use, moisture-proof mats, tent bottom mats and other bedding needs. It adopts European and American popular integrated folding design, which can be easily folded back to its original shape along the crease on the seat cushion. There are various styles, such as handbag type, cylinder type, bag type, etc.
A mattress pad, mattress topper, or underpad is designed to lie atop a mattress. Made from a variety of materials such as wool, cotton, memory foam, feather or latex, its function is to provide an extra layer of comfort, especially when the Existing mattress is worn or uncomfortable. Physically, it is a thin mattress, usually 5–10 centimetres (2–4 in) thick. Stand-alone mattresses of this size exist (see futon, and Bed base#Floor beds; traditional European beds were made of a stack of mattresses of this size). But mattress toppers are usually sold for use on top of boxsprings (secured with straps or elasticated cloth corners). They are used to extend the life of the more-expensive boxspring, make a bed warmer or cooler (with airflow , or heat-conductive materials), make a firm bed softer, and for travel and dorms, as they are portable, especially if they are low-density.
