Considering the mixed reviews about this mattress pad, I was hesitant about purchasing it. I am glad that I went ahead and got it. I purchased 2 of these mattress pads (one for a back up) to use on my new futon mattress (also purchased from Overstock) because my new puppy seems to think that the futon is his personal potty (which he is quickly learning it is not). Since we are in the midst of puppy potty training, I didn't want to take any chances and went ahead and bought these mattress pads in (full size). When I received them, which was very quickly, I put one on the futon mattress and poured a bottle of water on it to see what would happen. The water just pooled up and then eventually was absorbed (after about 5 minutes of sitting pooled up). When I went to remove the mattress pad to see if the water had seeped through, I was surprised to find that it was completely dry on the other side (after letting the water sit for 30 minutes total). As if that test wasn't enough, my puppy peed on the mattress pad later that night (which we didn't find out about until morning) and when we removed the pad the next morning, there was nothing on the other side of it (no yellow stain like on the front, no smell, nothing!). I am so happy with this purchase, plus I liked the fact that the pad doesn't make the plastic scrunching noise like so many others do. Bonus is that it is made by Sealy (no knock off brand), is comfortable to sleep on (according to overnight guests that I recently had), and washes/dries wonderfully. I recommend making this purchase!
