PillowShield was founded by Robert M. Glasser, M.D., FACP, a practicing Hematologist and Oncologist. He and his wife, Evelyn, are frequent travelers, and have slept on countless hotel and cruise ship pillows over the years. Dr. Glasser learned that hotel pillows are virtually never laundered and remain in use between two and seven years before they are discarded. In fact, studies have shown that the vast majority of these pillows contain live colonies of various microbes, as well as many other contaminants.

After an extensive search for an appropriate solution to this problem, Dr. Glasser was able to find a patented fabric, made in the USA, which is infused with an antimicrobial agent that has been certified to be safe and effective in inhibiting microbial growth on its surface.
PillowShield is a family-owned business, and we stand by our product 100%. Unlike copper and silver infused products, PillowShield fabric is non-allergenic and made from a single sheet of non-woven, non-porous material, making it an ideal antimicrobial barrier. Hospitals are now using this fabric to protect patients, and we are proud to make this technology available to the traveling public.
