Mattress covers are an inexpensive way to protect your mattress from body fluids, spills, and allergens. You can buy simple ones that only offer protection, or you can buy more involved ones that also add another layer of comfort and cushion to your mattress.
Pads and Covers
Mattresses are expensive, hard to clean, and dust and germ magnets. A mattress cover will protect your mattress investment, reduce the amount of cleaning and spotting of the mattress you’ll need to do, and keep allergen invaders away.
Magnetic Mattress Pads
Magnetic mattress pads let you gain the benefit of magnet therapy without the cost of buying a new mattress. I know people who have suffered from migraine headaches experience relief from sleeping on magnetic mattresses and mattress pads. Claims of relief for other kinds of aches and pains are made by magnetic mattress pad manufacturers and users alike. Is the therapy affective? Is it a panacea or real? If it works for you, who cares? The jury is still out though, on the real benefits of sleeping on magnetic mattress pads.
Magnetic Mattress Pad
Some people think magnetic mattress pads are a scam foisted on gullible people. But people who have experienced relief and a good night’s sleep on a magnetic mattress pad are convinced they are a great sleep and pain-relief solution.
Heated Mattress Pad
A heated mattress pad will let your bed feel warm when you first get into it on a cold winter night without heating the entire room. Many people love the feeling of cool air and a warm bed; this is the answer for those people. You can buy electric mattress pads from bedding stores, or if you can’t find one, try an electric blanket that you place under your regular mattress pad. Heated mattress pads add warmth and comfort to your bed when it’s cold outside. When you are feeling cold, turn on that electric mattress pad and sleep well.
Futon Mattress Covers
Futon mattress covers are both healthful and decorative. If your futon mostly provides an extra sitting space, you want it to look both attractive and stay clean. If sleeping is the primary function of your futon, a mattress cover isn’t as important because you’ll have a mattress pad and sheets covering the futon.
Foam Mattress Topper
A foam mattress topper will convert your existing mattress into the feel you want, be it firmer or softer. You can go the natural, latex foam mattress topper route, or the synthetic memory foam mattress topper route. Your sensitivity to off-gassing of synthetic materials will be part of your decision on which way to go. Make your mattress more comfortable by adding a foam mattress topper.
Foam Mattress Pad
A foam mattress pad can extend the life of your mattress, if it’s not in too bad a shape. This can be a good path to take for a mattress that is too firm or soft, or one that’s starting to sag in spots. You can’t fix a worn-out mattress with a foam mattress pad, but you can improve undesirable qualities with one.
Electric Heated Mattress Pad
An electric heated mattress pad is a brilliant bit of bedding to consider if you live in a cooler climate or are a bit cold blooded. They are also great for reducing aches and pains you may experience from health issues or a hard day’s work.
Down Mattress Pads
Down mattress pads are made in a variety of styles ranging from small pillows or channels to one large pillow without channels. They create a nest-like bed for sleeping in. They are comfortable year-round, regardless of the temperature. If you are looking for the experience of sleeping in a cloud, consider down mattress pads.
