Fight those mites!
Keep them at bay by using a topper - you manage the situation better by reducing the allergy trigger points.
You also get a healthier sleeping environment through improved air circulation.
Wash the cover along with the sheets to eliminate bugs and eggs along with other allergens that get trapped on the surface of the protector.
Use a commercial laundry for best results.
Nothing new in that - it's old hat. Take the old Romans, they ate and drank lying down - well the wealthy and upper classes did. The plebs had to make do with a bench in a smelly tavern.
The trouble is, if you do drink in bed regularly, whether it's a smoothie or a glass of dark red wine, it's almost certain there will be an accident at some stage - especially after a few glasses of alcohol! You might also have to resist an attack by kids with juices (Oh! the joys of parenthood!) perhaps backed up by slavery dogs who have just slurped from their water bowl.
And there is, of course, the upsetting problem of bed-wetting. It happens and we reckon that any product that helps to lessen this matter is a good thing.
Odors and stains on the coverlet are easily machine cleaned - a mattress can't be scrubbed up so easily.
What a nightmare - or it could be, but all is not lost. We have a solution for you. And no, it's not get rid of the children and pets!
The answer is that, even if your mattress is stated as water-proofed, it's sensible to take extra precautions and you'll have the extra safeguard for your bed by fitting a twin size waterproof mattress cover.
We show a choice of five highly-rated products that should meet the demands of any health-conscious family.
Conditions like asthma or allergy reactions can be helped with these items. They also protect against liquid penetration and combat the usual bedtime irritants like dust mites and bed bugs. How good they are at keeping out liquid might be affected by how quick someone removes the top from the bed when there's a spillage of some sort.
All the products listed in this post are vinyl-free which means that there are no toxins present to cause harmful side-effects. They use layered membranes as the main barrier to wetness.
People say that they are comfortable in use and this helps them get a relaxing sleep, because of the improved air-flow that reduces heat and perspiration build-up.
We've included for encasement-types of cover for folks who need one to fight bed bugs. These models are securely zippered to exclude any annoying little insects that insist on feeding on humans. Generally, covers are usually tops only or five-sided. This leaves access for biting insects to penetrate the mattress and frame.
This selection of covers are among the most popular bought online and can be fitted to all types of mattresses such as latex, box spring and memory foam.
Although we focus on the twin size, these items are available in the usual bed range sizes. They can accommodate mattresses from around 6 inches to 18 inches deep. Check out each type to find the best fit for you.
SafeRest and Linenspa give their ranges a 10-year full replacement guarantee which is very reassuring - we would guess these warranties are a big part behind the impressive reviews by over 54,000 people for SafeRest alone. Luna offers an even more impressive 15-year warranty. They can do this, they say, because they make the whole cover and source all parts within the USA.
Additionally, SafeRest have independent testing to the OEKO-TEX standard for textiles. Another favorable factor for this particular model.
