About Mattress Pads

A mattress pad adds extra comfort and softness to a mattress that is either already great or a bit too firm. Also called mattress toppers, these can range from a thin padded protective sheet to thicker products that add several more inches of plush. Mattress pads also help with temperature control. This is because they're absorbent, which helps keep you cool.

Mattress Pad Materials

Cotton, latex, and wool are commonly used for mattress pads. Cotton ones are usually thinner and quilted, but they are machine washable. Latex and wool pads are dust mite and mold-resistant, which makes them more durable than cotton. The right mattress pad will stay comfortable relative to how hot or cold you are in the night. You’ll want to consider mattress pads filled with natural fibers like cotton, wool, or down for this. Cotton is, of course, well known for keeping you cooler and you know you can toss it in the washing machine whenever you sweat on it. Almost counterintuitively, wool pads can work for the warmer months too.

Mattress toppers are thicker than mattress pads and are used to make your bed feel more cushioned. Mattress toppers may be used for adding plushness to your bed. Mattress pads add a bit of cushion, but are also used to protect the mattress. It adds an extra layer in between spills and dirt and the mattress.

The answer is it depends on you! You mattress preference is completely personal, just like this. Some people prefer a thin layer to protect the mattress while it stays firm, and others like to add even more inches of softness to their bed.

Always follow the instructions on the care label of the pad, but, typically vinyl-backed mattress pads can be machine washed in cold or warm water on a gentle cycle using mild detergent. Never use bleach on these pads.

Mattress pads add an added layer of comfort and luxury to your mattress. The primary goal of the mattress pad is to include an extra layer of comfort on the surface of your mattress, as well as keeping the mattress safe from spills and stains.

A good quality product that is made from durable materials should last anything between 3 to 10 years. Just like your mattress, you get what you pay for!

Crib mattresses are constanly being stained! Crib mattress pads provide an additional layer of comfort for the baby and act as a mattress cover to help keep the crib mattress protected from leaky messes.

Cooling mattress toppers and pads help you sleep cooler. They work by absorbing excess body heat and keeping it away from skin. These are much less expensive than cooling mattresses, and are a great idea if you love your mattress's comfort feel but it makes you sleep a bit warm.

Each fabric comes with unique qualities that determine what purposes it is well suited for. When bamboo is used in the making of a mattress pad, it is more durable, better absorbs moisture, and allows sweat to evaporate easily. Copper is anti-microbial and anti-fungal and is sometimes used in bedding for this reason. Because copper itself is anti-microbial, germs, including odor-causing ones, cannot thrive on or in copper ion infused textiles.

Check if your mattress topper comes with a feature to keep it in place. If not, there are different ways to improve the grip of your mattress topper, like a tightly fitted sheet, sheet straps, and a velcro system.
