This Better Earthing product is sewn in Australia using our custom-made earthing fabric with 99.9% pure silver coated fibre, that’s treated with German anti-oxidising agent to increase its longevity. Silver is naturally anti-bacterial and antimicrobial, and keeps your undersheet hygienically fresh (see more under the Antimicrobial tab).
Tencel is a strong natural fibre that is sustainably produced from eucalypt trees in Austria using an eco-friendly process. We use Tencel that is undyed and unbleached – it is a natural white colour before being woven with the silver. The grey-silver appearance in our fabric comes entirely from the silver fibres. You can actually see the silver threads in this fabric. See a close-up image in on our Earthing Sheet Fabric Explained page.
The high percentage of pure silver in this earthing fabric means you do not need direct skin contact. When you rest your head on your pillow, your pillowcase fabric is compressed. The tiniest bit of moisture in the fabric creates conductive channels that allow health-enhancing free electrons from the earth to pass from your earthing pillowcase to you. You can verify this with a multimeter or watch our video of a test here. Use with one (or two thin) regular cotton pillowcases (placed over the outside of your earthing pillowcase). This helps protect the silver fibres from normal body oil, hair oil, residue ingredients from face creams, men’s aftershave and other lotions which may damage the silver.

Silver is Naturally Antimicrobial
Sweat and body oils can build up on fabric through normal use, even with an underlay. This build-up can create a breeding ground for bacteria, mould or mildew.
Anti-microbial fibre actively kills or inhibits the growth of bacteria, including those that cause odour.
Better Earthing bedding uses pure silver coated fibre in 50% of the fabric. This reduces the need for washing, prolongs the life of the fabric and keeps replacement costs down.
This Better Earthing product comes with a 2-year warranty on its earthing effectiveness, plus a 1-year satisfaction guarantee.
Indoor Earthing Explained
This Better Earthing Sleep System comes with a special adapter plug and lead designed for earthing indoors.
All Australian and New Zealand powerpoints have a third ‘earth’ pin (at the bottom) that is wired to a metal rod or plate buried in the ground. This safety mechanism is called grounding – it’s there to send excess electricity back into the ground (earth). Indoor Earthing products use ground wiring in your home to safely pass free electrons from the earth to your indoor earthing product, then to you.
No electricity is used. You can earth with the powerpoint turned off. The top two prongs of Better Earthing adapter are plastic, instead of metal like a normal plug, so no a/c current from your electricity mains can pass through.
Both the Better Earthing Adapter and Lead have built-in safety resistors totalling 60,000 ohms. This protects against the rare (or theoretical) event of a power surge via the earth. If the nearby ground were struck with lighting, barely a mosquito bite of electricity could pass through these resistors. Better Earthing adapters conduct earth only. It is a safe and easy way to receive the earth’s health-enhancing free electrons from the comfort of your home.
You can use an autorange multimeter (sold separately) to verify that your products are correctly Earthed via the powerpoint. Compare the amount of electrical voltage carried in your body when you are not earthed, compared to when you are earthed. You’ll be amazed by how much excess AC electricity your body can pick up from surrounding electrical cables and devices and how much it dissipates (reduces) when earthed.
There is also an optional outdoor earthing rod and 15m lead if you don’t wish to earth via the indoor earthed wall socket.
