How do I wash/dry the pillowcase? TOP
Our pillow cases are machine washable/ tumble dry. They have been Professionally tested (AATCC 124 III A @ 105 degrees F, tumble dried) and rated a Class 4.5 (out of 5) for Durability of the Designs. Turn all screen printed products inside out to protect the design. You may iron, on reverse side only. In addition to the Professional tests, we have TRIED to destroy our products:) So far, repetitive laundering (2 pillow cases for over 10 years) we haven't been able to change the quality of our pillow cases! So, if you happen to dump 1/2 bottle of bleach in the machine...don't worry - we've already done it!!
How long will the design glow? TOP
Our designs will glow for 5-10 minutes. This depends on the intensity and duration of exposure to light. Children enjoy watching the design slowly fade away. We always said "the pillow case is going to sleep, time for you to close your eyes!" To see the design again, a quick shot of light will make it glow again. DO NOT lay pillowcases directly on lamp shades or lightbulbs!
What is the Federal Flammability Fabric Act? TOP
Comfy Cozy? pillow cases have been tested and rated as a Class 1 material in accordance with procedures of the Federal Flammability Fabrics Act. (Title 16 C.F.R. Section 1610) While there are NO flammability standards for many home furnishings products, including bedding, Comfy Cozy? submitted our products for testing. It was an expense we felt was important to the safety of our customers. The tests do not mean that our products will not burn. For a complete document (pdf file) click here.
What is the difference in size between a standard and travel pillowcase? TOP
A Standard pillowcase will fit any Standard pillow. The dimensions are approximately: 20 x 30. Our Travel or Toddler pillowcase is approximately 11.5 x 16 inches. See image below for comparison.
What type of ink do you use on your pillowcase? TOP
Comfy Cozy uses a non-toxic ink for our printing. The designs are hand screen printed by our own printer, then "cured" (heated/dried) to make the design permanent. They are safe to sleep on and easy to care for. The design will not peel off.
Why don't we use "water-based" ink? Based on the quantity we produce, we cannot use water-based inks. Products printed using water-based inks require a lengthy drying time and alot of space. We used them when we first started our business, however, we think our products now are more durable with our current process. The inks we use are perfectly safe. Please see next question for more info.
What is the CPSIA and does Comfy Cozy products comply? TOP
The CPSIA is the new Consumer Products Safety Improvements Act. It was passed in August 2008 and came out of the large amount of toys that had been discovered to contain high amounts of lead paint. Mainly, these products had been manufactured overseas for large companies, but the Act doesn't target only large manufacturers. While we support the intention of the Act, it's requirements can have devastating effects on small businesses across America.
Comfy Cozy, inc. has been using Non-Toxic inks since we started our company in 1994. We can assure our customers that the inks we use are safe and do not contain lead. On July 24th, Comfy Cozy,inc. sent samples of our products to a CPSC approved testing lab and will post results of these tests ASAP.
