Let’s face it, mattresses don’t come cheap, so at My Linen we recommend you look after your bed with a mattress protector. Not only can a mattress protector extend the life of your mattress, but they’re also great for those with allergies as they protect against irritants such as bed bugs, bed mould and dust mites. My Linen stocks a wide range of mattress protectors, including soft cotton that’s super absorbent and breathable, for a more comfortable night’s sleep. My Linen is also proud to stock a wide range of waterproof and anti-allergenic protectors.
Can you wash a mattress protector?
Most mattress protectors can be machine washed, but you can always spot clean your mattress protector! We would always recommend though that you check the care instructions on your individual mattress protector before putting it in the wash.
Do you put an electric blanket under a mattress protector?
You should always put your electric blanket on top of your mattress protector as the underside of your mattress protector typically has a layer that is quite susceptible to heat and can get damaged. This way you also get to feel the heat from your electric blanket without having another layer in the way!
What's the difference between a mattress topper and a mattress protector?
A mattress topper is a prefilled extra layer of comfort, and is not specifically designed to help with protecting your mattresses. A mattress protector on the other hand, is designed to keep your mattress clean from spills, oils, dirt and other bacteria.
How do I keep a mattress protector in place?
The best way to make sure a mattress protector stays in place is to get the right size for your bed. Make sure you get the right width and length, but also check the height of your mattress as you will need a protector that has enough of a skirt to fit around and under your mattress!
Do I need a waterproof mattress protector?
Without a waterproof protector on your mattress or pillow, your bed will get dirty from all the oils and dirt that come off your body as you sleep. Not only that, but if an accident occurs, your mattress will remain nice and clean! By simply placing a waterproof mattress protector on your bed, you will increase the longevity of your mattress.
