Mattress protectors are amazing. What else can keep your mattress safe from spills, pets, and bed bugs? They wrap around your mattress like a glove and work hard to keep your bed in brand new condition for years after you buy it. But for some reason we don’t quite get, a lot of people overlook them. Maybe not everyone realizes all the benefits a waterproof mattress protector brings to the table—or the nightstand.
At Sleepsteady we have a million reasons why you need a mattress protector immediately. But we figured a million reasons might run a little long, so here’s our top 7.
1. Potty Training is Hard Enough
Kids are adorable. They’re accidents? Less so. Potty training toddlers is hard enough without having to worry about cleaning up their mattress when things go wrong. And things always go wrong. No matter how hard you scrub, those “accident” stains never come out. Trust us on that one. A Sleepsteady mattress protector is totally waterproof, so the mattress stays dry and stains and bacteria stay out. Your kids can have all the accidents they want without the repercussions.
2. Pets Like Snuggling Too
Cats and dogs have a way of worming their way into our hearts and our beds. But that doesn’t mean we want their dander soaking into our mattress. And just like kids, pets can have accidents too. Whether it’s an ill-timed furball or a walk that came too late, a mattress protector means you never have to worry about any of it. Accidents and dander stay outside the mattress where they belong.
3. Even Parents Goof Up
Your morning ritual probably consists of a mad rush to get ready for work or kids or both. That means coffee and food get eaten while you do your makeup and fix your hair. But sometimes even parents goof up and that breakfast sandwich you were chowing down on falls onto your bed, ketchup side down. Don’t freak. Whether it’s ketchup, nail polish, or an evening cup of tea, your mattress protector has got you covered.
4. Allergies Get Better—Like Way Better
Dust mites lurk unseen by the naked eye. They infest your mattress and cause congestion, so you wake up with a stuffy nose. Try cooking breakfast for three kids on no sleep. It’s not easy. But there’s no reason you should have to suffer. Tencel mattress protectors keep dust mites and bed bugs out. That means your allergies get better and you can actually get a good night’s sleep for a change.
5. No More Sweaty Nights
We all sweat more at night, it’s just the way our bodies tick. A new white mattress can turn yellow fast when the sweat starts piling up. Over time, that light yellow turns a nasty brown, and things start to smell. Our cooling mattress protector wicks away moisture and keeps you cool so you sweat less. And when you do sweat, it can’t get through the waterproof barrier, so no stains will rear their ugly heads.
6. Keep Out Germs and Bacteria
Colds and flu bugs have a way of tracking kids home. A runny nose can turn into a breeding ground for bacteria, especially if things start running onto your mattress. Germs thrive in moist environments, but it’s a mattress protector’s job to keep moist things out. Your mattress can’t get infected if the germs can’t pass through it. Your child’s bed stays clean, healthy, and safe from lingering bacteria, which means they recover faster and you can stop playing Super-Mom and finally get some rest.
7. Save Money—A Lot of Money
Mattresses are expensive. Seriously. They can cost thousands of dollars. We’ve seen mattresses that cost as much as a used car. You don’t put that kind of money into something and then do nothing to keep it safe. A Sleepsteady mattress protector is like insurance for your mattress. It keeps your bed safe and helps it last longer so you don’t have to buy a new mattress every year, saving you tons of money for things like family vacations and college tuition.
