Bath Pillows Buyer’s Guide

Choosing a perfect bath pillow can be tricky since there are quite a few options available for the consumers today. This variety of options in essence has to be for the convenience of the consumer but they are in reality serving the purpose of confusing the consumer. The other thing when it comes to selecting a bat pillow is that it’s a matter of personal preference and no two bath pillows can be equally comfortable for a consumer so there is a difference even when you narrow it down to two options depending on your personal requirement. So in this publication we are going to discuss some points that will help our readers in making a good choice when it comes to bath pillows. So let’s get into that.

  • Inflatable Bath Pillow Quality

When it comes to inflatable bath pillows you have to keep in mind few things that will help you ensure that the quality of the inflatable bath pillow is not compromised in anyway. Apart from the obvious joints around the suction cups and the seam you should look for joints in any other part of the pillow as well. After identifying all the joints and seams on the pillow you should look for any tiny holes around the joints and the seams because they are obvious indications of poor quality. Around the seam area you should look for the seam material itself that it’s not starting to break or anything like that and there should be no cracks around the seam area as well. If these points are all good in the bath pillow then you will not have to worry about any air or water leakages in the pillow.

  • Filled Bath Pillows

When it comes to filled bath pillows which are usually filled with micro beads or some other material you have to look for the same thing as the inflatable bath pillows. There has to be strong seal that will ensure that no filled material escapes the bath pillow if that does happens you will have to replace the bath pillow as a whole there is nothing else you can do about it.

  • Proof Cover

When you select a bath pillow of any type you should make sure that it has proof cover on it that will resist any type of odor, mold,  mildew and bacteria.

  • Cover Material

There is variety of options available when it comes to cover materials of bath pillows ranging from PVC to Fabric. In the end this point comes down to the user’s preference. But if you do buy a fabric covered bath pillow you should make sure that the fabric can be removed so that it can be washed or cleaned when necessary.

  • Suction Cup

Finally if you are selecting a bath pillow for yourself you should check the quality of the suction cups. This is necessary especially in the case of inflatable bath pillows because when the bath pillow is filled up the weight of the bath pillow increases. The increased weight can test the limit of suction cups and if you find that the suction cups are not strong enough in the bath pillow you want to purchase you should leave that bath pillow and look for another one. Strong suction cups will improve your bathing experience and weak suction cups will lead to bath pillow moving around too much and you having to adjust it a lot during your relaxing bath, this is annoying.
