This mattress protector is made of 100-percent terry cotton. It will extend the life of your mattress by keeping it waterproof and stain-free, and its elasticized walls give a better fit for added protection....more
My father is an elderly diabetic and now spends most of the day in bed. He doesn't like wearing adult diapers and so, wakes up in urine soaked clothes most of the time. My mother is working herself to death trying to keep up with changing his sheets and was having a hard time washing, drying and remaking the bed before he wanted to get back in it. She has a couple sets of sheets for my dad's bed but only had one mattress pad. So, I ordered this and had it sent to their home. My mom said it is better than the other they have which is hard for her to get around the corners of the bed (she has bad hands - arthritis). She said she likes this one much better because it is roomier and easier to work with. She actually asked that I order another which I have done. Now she will have two of these and the original one and should therefore always have a clean pad for a quick bed change. I am debating ordering another (3rd) and she can throw away the old original one which is hard for her to work with.
I had done a little price comparing prior to purchasing this mattress pad and it appeared to be a fairly good deal. Remember to FOLLOW THE WASH INSTRUCTIONS because this is waterproof and if the directions aren't followed, the waterproofing could be ruined.
I bought the queen size since my dad's bed is a queen. His mattress is a pillow-top but not like some of the very thick pillow-tops out there. I haven't actually seen this pad but from what my mother said, I suppose it would fit the thick pillow-top mattresses as well but with less corner material to work with. It is hard to review a product without having seen it but like I said, my mother (who is quite frugal) :-) likes this pad and enough so that she asked that I buy another. Hope this helps with your decision making...
I got this mattress protector to replace an old one I had that finally ripped. This new one, like the old one, is basically a fitted sheet that goes under your regular sheets. I like the terry cloth top because it's made of real cotton, HOWEVER this new mattress protector is very thin and doesn't prevent leaks! I have a geriatric cat who occasionally pees on my bed (which was my reason for getting this product in the first place).
This past weekend was his first incident with the new mattress protector and at least half the urine ended up soaking through into the mattress! I thought there was supposed to be a plastic under-lining? If I'm going to end up blotting cat urine out of my mattress anyway, why spend the extra money on this product instead of just using regular sheets?? I would NOT recommend this to anyone who expects there to be any accidents or spills on their bed, because it doesn't actually keep liquid off the mattress.
I read a review on here prior to purchase'n that this wasn't waterproof i decided to see for myself luckily, because this mattress protector is waterproof. I tested it before putting it on my bed, because i have a memory foam mattress topper and if it gets wet its done for, so i ran it under running water with a paper towel underneath to see if the paper towel would get wet and it didn't so, it is waterproof.. and i am happy with my purchase, fits well over my mattress AND memory foam topper which is an extra 4 inches.
the protector is nice and soft, and doesn't make a crunchy sound that is common to other waterproof products. the size is exactly right for our bed. i am not sure how effective the product is since my son has not leaked through his diaper lately, but i love that i can wash and dry the product without worrying that it will melt in the dryer.
This a excellent quality mattress protector. Does a great job of protecting the mattress. I had previously bought Rest-A-Sure protector. The rest-a-sure is good one too, but I think the side panel on Rest_A-Sure is flimsy. Compared to that, this one had much more thick sturdy side panels, for a marginally higher price. Both have equally good water proof panel that is on the mattress and both do an excellent job of protecting the mattress.
This arrived today, very fast shipping. I love the quality of this mattress cover. It's very soft and waterproof without being noisy. We purchased a new bed and needed something to protect it. This will do the trick!
I don't usually bother to leave reviews. But with so many mixed comments saying this pad doesn't prevent leaks (which nearly caused me to not purchase it), I felt the record needed to be set straight on this excellent product..... This mattress protector is exactly that - a protector of your mattress! It's without a doubt 100% WATER PROOF!!
First, the fabric is super soft! I could actually sleep on it without a sheet but of course I didn't. Most pads are thick, heavily padded, & stiff with plastic backing. This one is very thin, just 2 layers, which at first concerned me....but then came the leak experiment! I put my hand on the back side and held the pad under the faucet. I let the water run for a few seconds, then I gathered it up and let the water pool. I let this pool hang there for a min or two to see if it soaks through but it never did. All the while my hand is on the other side of the water pool still dry as it was before! So I am totally convened this pad will hold a 3 year old potty accident! Of course my 3 yo isn't a "Bull Mastiff" like one person used this pad for...and they wonder why it leaked! Hmmm?
Anyway if you're an average sized "human", with an average sized bladder, and you don't puncture holes with your massive paws & toenails then you should be just fine!
This is not a zip-around mattress cover so I do not believe it would provide adequate protection from dustmites or bedbugs.dede6677 on Mar 7, 2013

I have washed this mattress protector quite often (weekly) in cold water with Tide. My dog once had an accident on the bed and the liner saved the mattress. Washing in cold water got it out. Sorry, have never used hot water or bleach as my regular washing seems to do just fine.lruiz83 on Jan 23, 2013
While I understand your concern I hope you accept my deepest sympathies and best wishes. Unfortunately the best care instructions for the item is to not bleach, that will only defect the item, and it can only be washed with cold water, I hope that information should suffice. Please let me know if you have any more questions. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 31, 2013
You might try adding 1/2 white vinegar (colorsafe with all fabrics, unlike bleach) & 1 teaspoon tea tree oil (a natural antiseptic, so "old-fashioned" that MRSA hasn't developed resistance to it yet) to a cold-water wash. I can't guarantee that this wouldn't do any harm to a waterproof mattress cover; however, those 2 products added to every load of our family's laundry for the past 5 yrs. or so have greatly reduced the number of infections in our family.catherinemcclarey on May 21, 2013
We love how comfortable our bed is and do not want to feel the mattress protector much. Is this thin enough so that we would be able to feel our mattress?kirbee314 on Nov 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
There are over 200 reviews on this pad and that would be your source of information on this particular question. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 17, 2012
