Having a really nice Mattress Protector really does make a huge difference in the life of a mattress. As someone who finally owns my dream bed that I hope to own for years to come, a Premium Mattress Protector review couldn't have come at a better time. So, when Protect-A-Bed contacted me and told me about their line of Mattress Pads and Protectors, I was thrilled to test one out.
It seems everything needs washed more often now that we have a little one in the house, but bedding is by far the most daunting. Since our bed has become the Saturday Morning Cartoon bed, we've seen at least twice as many loads of bedding, which makes me extra grateful for Protect-A-Bed offering both protection and comfort, as well as minimizing the amount of loads of bedding that need laundered each week.
While I was searching through the Protect-A-Bed website, I found a fact that seriously made me feel ill: Every night the human body loses at least a pint of body fluids through skin pores and mouth, as well as millions of skin flakes. I don’t know about you, but I find that absolutely disgusting. That’s the kind of fact that makes you realize that waterproof mattress covers aren’t just for the very young or very old, but rather for anyone who wants to protect their mattress investment.
What makes the Premium Mattress Protector by Protect-A-Bed so unique is the Miracle Membrane® material that is breathable and comfortable in addition to being waterproof. I don’t know if anyone out there remembers the waterproof mattress pads of our youth, but growing up my best friend had one, and it felt and sounded like you were sleeping on a tarp. After reading that the Protect-A-Bed offers superior waterproofing without the plastic feel and sound, I was more than intrigued. But, once the Premium Mattress Protector arrived, I realized it absolutely was true. In a size that is only a little bit bigger than a fitted sheet, Protect-A-Bed gives you the ultimate in piece of mind and still is remarkably soft and comfortable.
In addition to waterproofness, Protect-A-Bed also is perfect for those with allergies and health concerns. By creating a barrier over the mattress to protect against dust mites and allergens that can thrive in an unprotected mattress, Protect-A-Bed offers you and your family relief and a good night's sleep.
Before this, I had always purchased premium pillow topped mattress pads, hoping to find one someday that was able to hold up longer than a year or two. It seems like no matter how much I spent for it, or what the label on the package claimed, that they all were made of the cheapest fabrics known to man in the areas it really mattered and really didn’t offer much in the way of mattress protection. Sure, the top may be 500 thread count suprema cotton, but it’s the poor sides of the pad that will cause you to replace it after just a few washings.
Speaking of washing, another huge frustration with the big and bulky mattress pads I used to own was that they took up an entire washing machine load. This meant that it literally doubled my laundry that needed to be done. So, instead of having to run the washer and dryer both twice fully in order to make the bed again, we ended up getting an extra mattress pad as a spare and rotated them each time we did up the bed. For those of you who haven’t seen a plush mattress pad any time recently, I will let you in on a little secret – these things are mammoth and require a frustratingly huge amount of space to store in between uses.
Protect-A-Bed solved all of these problems and more with their Premium Mattress Protector, offering superior protection in an ultra small package. I was finally able to reclaim a whole shelf of my linen closet that had previously stored a huge spare mattress pad. No longer do we need to spend all day laundering our sheets and mattress pads, but now can throw the Protect-A-Bed Premium Mattress Protector in with the other bedding with space to spare. But, even better than that was that facts like the one listed on the Protect-A-Bed website really didn’t bother me much anymore. As long as I know that the pint of bodily fluids and skin cells is not making it into my beloved mattress, I am a happy girl.
