Always worth it. I suffer from bad dust mite, pet and plant allergies and for the longest time I would find myself coughing in bed and waking up with such gross and uncomfortable swelling in my face (not to mention the congestion). When my allergist told me about Mission Allergy everything changed. I use mission allergy products on all of my beds, the barrier on my desk chair at work, the shower curtain, and of course the pillows, comforters, and casings. It’s changed my life and for me being able to go to bed and wake up without worrying about the discomfort or pain is worth every penny. Everyone knows that the quality of Mission Allergy quality items is the best. I used to use the thinner mattress covers but I rather like the pads as they’re a little thicker and they have a nice quilted pattern. Honestly, this company is a lifesaver.
