From the moment, this purchase arrived, we could tell that they focused a lot of attention to details as it was packed beautifully in what looks like a gift box. What was inside the box is even better thought through as this mattress protector is incredibly soft, while at the same time water proof beyond our belief. We double tested this, because we were skeptical about this claim and we were not interested in our kids or dog ruing our latex mattress. When we poured water on the surface, we discovered that this really was a mattress protector as the water balled up on top, refusing to soak down to the mattress. This product is everything they claim and then some. We are now total believers and wanted to share our experience.
This mattress protector may work fine, I don't know, I just got it. The reason I gave it only an average rating is because it is NOT all natural, as seems to be implied. The waterproof backing is Polyurethane. I did not see anything in the description about any materials except bamboo. So I assumed it used a tightly woven bamboo fabric backing to make it waterproof. I used to use cotton diaper covers that were very effective, so it did not seem unusual to me that a natural fiber could be used for this purpose. And I know there are organic cotton barrier covers that protect against dust mites, so I thought this would be the bamboo version of that product. The organic cotton ones are very expensive, so I thought I could still get something all natural only more affordable. I guess I'll just keep it and use it until I can afford an organic cotton one. The lesson learned here is "you get what you pay for."
I had a hunch when I saw the pictures that this was going to be a good mattress protector so I took a chance and was totally validated upon its arrival. This product is soft as I could have hoped and very quiet. So far it has washed well and it's water proof finish seems to still be as good as new after multiple washes. I have ordered 3 more for the kid's rooms and that for me, a born cynic,is a real and rare vote of confidence for this product.
So far this mattress protector is 2 for 2 in protecting our mattress from accidental spills as our 3 year old loves hanging out on our bed and does not want to take no for an answer when it comes to drinking apple juice from a Sponge Bob sippy cup that is far from fool proof. The waterproof component to this is almost miraculous, in keeping the liquid on top of the surface,with no penetration to our mattress. This alone makes this the best money spent but in addition the fabric is very cooling and comfortable, making this purchase a slam dunk.
By far this was one of the best mattress pads we have ever purchased! We couldn't believe the quality not only with the packaging, but the mattress pad was soft and obviously well constructed. Even after multiple washings this Greenzone mattress pad still looks new. We highly recommend this product.
I purchased this pad to protect our new mattress, since according to the 10 year factory warranty, any staining will make the warranty void. This mattress protector comes nicely packaged, is great quality and does perform as intended (to protect the mattress). However, for me personally, it sleeps way too hot! Not recommended for women over 50 or those people who tended to sleep too warm. There is little to no breath-ability as this is a moisture barrier-terry type pad.
I knew bamboo was extremely soft and temp regulating so i wanted to try this to replace my hot and noisy mattress protector, but it was very hard to tell what this product was all about from the pictures, which did not really tell much of a story. I took a chance and ordered it and in retrospect this is an amazing product. It does everything it promises and washes incredibly well. I am happy to reccomend it.
I tried to use this item with memory foam mattres. It does not allow the flow of air, turning mattress into a giant brick!! It also overheats!!!! I felt like sleeping over a grill. I had to wake up at 0400 AM to remove it, cause I could not sleep at all!
I was looking for an all natural mattress protector as I am sensitive to chemicals that most brand name mattress pads contain. I happened upon this product through Overstock and am super satisfied. It is approved by a Oekotex, which gives me comfort regarding the purity of the materials used. The ultimate test however is I have been sleeping extremely well since installing this mattress pad and have none of the headache symptoms that I sometimes develop when exposed to formaldehyde as well as other chemicals. This is a fine product and I will buy for my kids.
The mattress protector is a good quality. It is soft and comfortable under our sheets. I would say it is excellent if it was completely waterproof. I think it is mostly waterproof, but some water does penetrate the cover. For example, when my husband perspires at night, the mattress does get a little damp.
I am happy with this mattress pad. Fits our very thick mattress perfectly. Haven't yet been able to test the waterproof feature, but will assume it is as advertised. Fairly thin with a terry top, not lofty at all. Not what I am used to for a mattress pad, but it's fine. I also like the Greenzone feature.
The quality of this is really nice, but my husband and I found it unuseable. We found ourselves incredibly sticky and sweaty every night, and neither of us are sleepers who tend to get hot at night. Other people wrote reviews saying it wasn't at all hot, so perhaps when paired with a memory foam mattress like we have it gets hot. Total bummer.
This product arrived very quickly, was packaged very nicely, and fit perfectly. The Bamboo fabric is great, so much softer than cotton terry we had before. It is very cooling too. We do not feel the night heat that we have had previously. Also, we have washed repeatedly and it comes out looking very good. Great item, will buy again for the kids.
I was very surprised when I opened the box that this cover was so thin. But it's great! In the past, we had thick, crinkly, noisy waterproof mattress covers that shrank and cracked after a washing. This one is so nice! I bought two of them now, so that I can "double dress" the bed for my special needs son. One mattress cover, then a fitted sheet, then another mattress cover and another fitted sheet. So that way, if something happens in the night, I can just removed the top layers of a sheet and cover, and have a clean set underneath. This thin cover makes this plan very easy to do. I can't comment on the long term durability, but it's been washed and dried twice and looks brand new. I bought the twin xl size and it fits the twin xl mattress perfectly.
