Your Secret is Safe with a Mattress Protector for Incontinence

Nighttime accidents can happen at any age. It’s time to put away the shame, stop the destruction, and protect your mattress as well as your good night’s sleep.

First thing’s first. You need a mattress protector for incontinence. No, it’s not hot and uncomfortable. The right mattress protector is soft, cool, and ultra-thin, so you never even know it’s there. It keeps you dry and stops liquids from soaking in. That’s a win-win in any situation.

How Can a Mattress Protector Help?

In short, a mattress protector keeps your mattress dry even when you have an accident. Liquids can’t get through the protective waterproof barrier, so even if your sheets get wet, your mattress won’t.

Let’s talk about what that means for you.

  • Stop Stains: Sleepsteady mattress protectors have a polyurethane barrier that lets air in while keeping liquids out. Stains won’t have a chance to set in.
  • Prevent Orders: Bacteria from accidents cause odors that intensify over time, even if you clean things up fast. A mattress protector stops odor-causing bacteria from building up.
  • Easy Cleanup: Forget cleaning sprays and scrub brushes. A Sleepsteady mattress protector for incontinence peels off like a sheet and is machine washable.
  • Save Money: Extend the life of your mattress by keeping it clean and comfy, so you don’t have to buy a new one every year.

There are different types, styles, and fabrics to sift through, and they’re not all equal. Add in a waterproof layer, and it’s hard to know what you’re looking for.


  • Cotton: Cotton sounds good in theory. It’s soft, affordable, and everyone’s familiar with it. But cotton doesn’t hold up as well as other materials.
  • Polyester: It’s machine washable and won’t hurt your pocketbook, but it locks in heat even on cool nights. If you’re already a hot sleeper, best to avoid.
  • Bamboo: It’s eco-friendly and hypoallergenic, so sensitive skin won’t be affected. The downside? It’s expensive and out of budget for many people.

  • Plastic/Vinyl: Plastic does an outstanding job of keeping your mattress dry. It also traps air and makes your bed uncomfortably warm.
  • Polyurethane: It’s ultra-thin, breathable, and keeps liquids out while letting air in. Enjoy a cool, dry night’s sleep.
