Polygiene BioStatic antimicrobial technology is based on a silver salt solution, embedded in the fabric, which stops odor at the source by permanently inhibiting the growth of bacteria. This means products stay fresh and hygienic for longer and can still be washed less frequently.
Humans shed millions of microbes every single hour. Most experts recommend washing bed sheets every 1 or 2 weeks, depending on how often we shower. Yet, according to studies undertaken in the past year, the average person in the USA changes their bed sheets roughly every 24 days, while in the UK 30% of people admit to washing their sheets just once a year.
A growing number of bedding and mattress brands are treating their products with Polygiene BioStatic Stays Fresh technology from Polygiene AB, Malmö/Sweden. The technology is suitable for mattress and pillows, as well as bedding sets and quilted mattress pads.
Furthermore, Polygiene ViralOff is an antimicrobial treatment sparked by Covid-19 that reduces over 99% of microbes in a treated material or product. This technology enhances a product’s hygiene and protection qualities as well as extending its life, as with all Polygiene treatments.
Moreover, sleeping bags are also increasingly being treated with Polygiene antimicrobial products.
