Mattress Protectors


There’s no magic trick to maintaining your mattress. All you need is a top-notch mattress protector.

The fact that a clean, well-kept mattress can work wonders when it comes to helping you drift off ought to be music to the ears of any restless sleeper. All you need to do is slip it on and your bed is transformed into a far comfier, far healthier, far superior surface.

But despite their effectiveness at sending you into a blissful slumber, mattress protectors aren’t as widely used as the surfaces they’re designed to defend. This is, in part, because people aren’t familiar with how they work or how to use them. Which is why we've put together our customers top 4 most frequently asked questions:

Mattress Protector FAQ's

  1. How do mattress protectors work?

  2. The specific way in which mattress protectors work depends on their design type. Some literally wrap around a mattress (these are sometimes known as “fitted protectors”), but others simply rest on the surface of the bed. Regardless of type, each protector shares the same purpose: which is to protect both the mattress and sleeper. Without a protector in place, a mattress can become dirty and damaged after extended use, whilst the bed user will be exposed to a potentially unhygienic surface.

  3. How do I attach a mattress protector?

  4. The great thing about mattress protectors is that they’re super simple to use. All you need to do is strip your current mattress of all existing bedding, and then proceed to unpack the mattress protector. A lot of these products come with elasticated corners that curl around each edge of the mattress. Others arrive with attachments, and some just lie on top without the need for you to connect them to the bed at all. Regardless though, mattresses protectors are all very easy to use.

  5. What mattress protector should I buy?

  6. The type of mattress protector you should purchase depends on the kind of surface you like, how often you’re expecting to clean it, and who is going to be sleeping in that particular bed. For example, a baby or small child will benefit most from a soft texture like cotton and waterproof material that can be washed easily. Our Organic Single Mattress Protector is the perfect example. Consider the bed user’s needs before you leap to purchase a particular protective bed material.

  7. Do mattress protectors actually work?

  8. A lot of people wonder whether mattress protectors are worth the money. The truth is that they do work and they do help. By functioning as an absorbent layer between you and the mattress, these protectors catch dead skin and sweat, preventing contaminants from seeping into the bed. After several uses, you can simply throw your protector in amongst the washing – which is much easier than trying to wipe down an entire mattress.

Kids Teepee Cabin Bed

Fantastic bed! My daughter loves this as do I, it is really well made and heavy and was relatively easy to assemble. It gives my daughters room a really magical feel, would definitely recommend.

Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

So easy to use and produces simply excellent pizzas. Wood fire oven pizzas taste so much better and in the UUNI they cook very quickly indeed, (you'll need to turn them every thirty seconds or so for the perfect pizza). Well made product and only took fifteen minutes to assemble - even the correct tools were provided so no digging around in my toolbox.

The Garden Igloo 360 Dome

I love our igloo. Not too hard to put up, it's lovely to sit inside as the nights are drawing in. It's like a conservatory. Spacious too. We've added some fairy lights and candles. There is a slight smell of pvc but the fragranced candles disguise it. Looking forward to using it in the summer too and will buy the canvas cover. I may even put some flooring down to make it even cosier!

Kubu Rattan Hanging Lamp

Amazing first class customer experience!! Very helpful and honest staff. I will look here again!!
