    I know why a mattress encasement but why use a pillow encasement?
    Would you use a pillow case on top of it?
    How often would you wash it?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    I never used them. I figured it would be just as easy to examine and/or run a pillow through the dryer, so it seemed like an unnecessary step

    So I understand you correctly, are pillow encasements snake oil? So I take it that means you consider them unnecessary.

    bed bugs could hide inside a pillow case, right?
    A pillow protector at least keeps them out of that area?
