I ordered these futons to use as cushions for a long sofa that I made. They were the perfect choice for this application, but I need to say that if you are planning on sleeping on this mattress you are best to find a better quality. They are filled with cotton batting that I think is probably recycled material. They are quite, the only word I can use it, toxic. The off gassing is still going on and I've had them for two weeks. I let them air out but there is still a very slight chemical smell. I only sit on it for limited periods, if you would sleep on it I would worry a little about my health. My eyes itch and I get a slight headache when I take a nap. I will be covering them with a plastic mattress cover in a few weeks so this won't bother me, but I wouldn't let me children sleep on it.

I'm happy with the 2 twin futon mattresses I bought for my boys' room. I am using them for their twin beds. Not super cushy like a traditional mattress, but they are only 4 and 6, so they don't mind. The bonus is they won't jump on them! Maybe when they are older, I can buy 2 more and stack them for added comfort...or get a feather bed topper. The twin sheets I bought fit great, as well as the twin mattress protector. There is a smell to these mattresses. I guess it's a cotton smell. Pretty strong for the first week or two, but didn't smell chemical. I would have preferred organic cotton, but these were more in our price range. I talked to customer service/chat to ask about fire retardants and was told they use Boric Acid. Would have preferred no fire retardant chemicals, but I think Boric Acid is better than others used. Not 100% on this. Overall, happy with purchase. Would do it again if I was limited to this price range, but if I wasn't, would definitely go all natural, organic, no chemicals, etc. I thought this was a bargain though!
My understanding is that these cotton futons are treated with Boric acid as a fire retardent. My hope was that there would not be a significant smell from this but the smell is very very strong even after several weeks. I am going to look into returning it.

I thought the futon would be a little thicker. it is very thin. i am at a vacation rental and the mattress was too soft and non supportive (i need a VERY firm sleeping surface). i ordered this and put it on top of the box spring, would might explain some of the non-stellar rating....but i still thought it was a little lumpy in places. anyway, thank God the owner had a thick mattress topper i used on top of the futon and now it is working fine. i was surprised that i wasn't totally thrilled with the purchase because of the great reviews. it would do fine as an occasional emergency bed or something for guests.
So yes, it has the green tea smell which is slowly dissipating. However, I love the fact that it is all cotton. It is heavy though, which is great once you get it where you want it. I ordered the natural color and it looks really good.
Even after over a year it has kept up wonderfully with heavy use!
Folds up well an responds to folding direction.
Pure cotton inside - buy a cover - this zips over but is not a cover.
Keeps good shape! Comfortable! Very comfortable even for co-sleeping, or changing from child's bed to adults bed). Heavy use (night time plus day time naps) is great! Wonderful futon!
Note: natural cotton means its heavy. Like four or five loads of cotton t-shirts and jeans lol

Can I order this mattress without the boric acid treatment?mayyar on Jul 23, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello mayyar, this mattress does not come with a boric acid treatment. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 24, 2014
According to response from Overstock Customer Care on Nov 26, 2012, boric acid is used as a flame retardant in the mattress. Has this changed since then?
"The flame retardant used is boric acid. Its a powder that is put on the cotton

Is this mattress reversible? Is the smell from the boric acid treatment or something else?twinm on Feb 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I did some research...boric acid is oderless. If it has a strong smell, it must be something else in the cotton. Maybe pesticides? Is the cotton new or recycled cotton?twinm on Feb 10, 2013
We consulted all of the experts and have the following information. The foam is a soy based CFC free urethane foam. When one sticks your nose right up to it, it has no smell. The casing fabric is grey goods which is about as natural as possible which means no treatments of any kind. The casing also has no smell. If one puts their nose up to the cotton, polyester batting, or wool components, the best way to describe their smell is like one has just cut the grass.
Because a mattress is like a sponge, we are thinking there may be a residual temporary smell from either the shipment packaging, individual components’ packaging, or a smell picked up in transit. For example, the foam comes wrapped in plastic and maybe the foam in yours was the outside piece next to the plastic and the plastic wrap smell was a bit absorbed. Another possibility is that your futon mattress was in a truck to you with something “smelly” in it and your futon mattress absorbed some of its odor.
Our suggestion is to unpack it and leave it in the open air for a few days without a cover or bedding and let the residual packaging smell dissipate.

Now you really have me confused. I thought there is no foam in this mattress! Description says 100% cotton batting. I ordered because of that. I don't want any urethane foam for health reasons. Can you clarify ASAP if it has foam or not?twinm on Feb 25, 2013
Sorry for the delay we consulted once again with the manufacturer regarding the previous statement they provided. They were able to confirm this item is cotton. We apologize for the confusion. We are trying to acquire more information regarding the product and will post information as we receive it.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 26, 2013
