Best Mattress Protector Reviews

(Last Updated On: August 15, 2018)

What do you need in a mattress protector well obviously it needs to protect the mattress from holes. rips or dirt and stains. If it can prevent bed bugs and dust mites from appearing this is a definite plus. It absolutely needs to cover the mattress and it has to be a perfect fit. You do not want to spend a lot of money on a mattress protector either. You want the mattress protector to match the form and texture of the mattress as well. It needs to have the ability to contour to the body as the mattress will. The mattress protector needs to keep the bed at a cool temperature so you can sleep comfortably throughout the night. It would be beneficial if it would absorb independent movement so your sleeping partner does not feel it every time you roll over on the mattress. The mattress protector can protect the mattress from stains and spills as well. It should add years to your mattress with the protection it offers. There are some solid mattress protectors on the market today. Let’s take a look at some. They should be ones a lot of people are talking about.

Benefits and Uses: This mattress protector meets the first requirement we talked about above. There are a lot of people talking about this mattress protector over 7800 people wrote reviews about the product. The product is made of cotton and it is made in the United States. It protects against urine, sweat, dust mites and other impurities that may appear on the mattress keeping it clean and sterile. The protector is waterproof and will form fit your queen-size bed. It is 100% waterproof so you can spill all the liquids on it you want (it would better if you didn’t though) and they will not be absorbed into the sheets or the mattress. On second thought they would soak through the sheets stopping at the mattress protector. It is a fitted mattress protector measuring 60″x60″ and it is 18″ deep. The hypoallergenic terry cover is noiseless and it will not change the feel of the mattress. It also absorbs moisture keeping the mattress clean and dry.

Feedback: The customer tested this mattress protector first hand. I am not sure why the customer did it this way but here is their story. They took the mattress protector and put it under a faucet of running water. They made a pocket with their hand and let the water fill up into a pool in the mattress protector. The water eventually was absorbed into the mattress and the water did not leak through the mattress protector initially. The water did not soak through and the water was first absorbed into the top layer of the mattress protector and spread around. Eventually, it absorbs into the second layer it will keep the mattress dry. The customer claims the protector has two layers of fabric to protect the liquid from absorbing into the mattress. The mattress received a 5-star rating. The customer attached an image but you really could not see if it was wet or dry.

Best Mattress Protector

This is not a fair rating the customer gave this mattress. The client rated the mattress protector 4 stars because it was too big for her smaller mattress. The mattress is designed specifically for a queen-size mattress, not a smaller one. The customer says it keeps water and dirt from absorbing into the mattress. I do not see how potting soil would be able to be absorbed through the mattress protector in the first place. The customer says it keeps the water out and it does not make you sweat when you sleep on it. The mattress is noiseless as it said in the product description. The customer complains the mattress is too big for their smaller mattress. It is very hard to clean because you have to be so careful about washing it. You cannot use a fabric softener or a detergent with fabric softeners. This way it will maintain its waterproof properties and you have to dry it on a delicate cycle which takes a very long time. It must be washed by itself so it will last a long time. The customer rated the mattress protector 4-stars for the reason that was really not valid. The mattress protector received a 4-star rating because it was too small for the client’s mattress.

The mother bought the mattress protector for her 4-year-old son who recently moved into an adult-sized bed. The boy has the same issue his mother has and that is the frequently wets the bed. They have taken preventive measures but the urine soaked through the toddler bed. The customer checked out the mattress protector supplies at her local store. She was not thrilled with the store’s selection so she went online. She decided to buy these mattress protectors because of all the good reviews. She bought two of the size she needed for her son’s mattress and it seems to have solved the problem. The customer did not want to ruin the mattress on the full-size bed before it was too late to save the mattress. The client rated the mattress cover 5-stars. The customer writes that the mattress is made of the best construction. She washed the mattress several times and it has lasted through the washes. The terry cloth covering becomes softer after each wash. The client has washed other mattress protectors that fell apart after 6 washes. These were very poor-quality mattress protectors. The customer also said that the mattress cover fits nicely over a mattress that has large pillows. She believes it will fit over wider mattresses easily.

The client says the mattress protector is quiet and you cannot hear it when her 4-year-old son moves around on the mattress. She was afraid it would be very noisy but it turned out to be a very quiet mattress protector. It breathes very nicely the other mattress protectors did not breathe and her son would wake up in the middle of the night a sweaty mess. This mattress breathes so her son does not wake up sweating profusely. She writes they live in Florida which does not help the sweating issue. The customer says the mattress protector is reasonably priced because, in her local Bed, Bath, and Beyond their mattresses were a lot more expensive than this one. This mattress protector was cheaper than 75% of the mattresses that the local Bed, Bath, and Beyond carried in their inventory. The customer says with this mattress protector you get more than what you pay for. The customer updated the review about one-year later and says there is nothing bad she can say about this mattress protector.

Feedback: The customer was looking for a way to keep her bedding dry. She tried this product and it is keeping the bedding dry. She sleeps comfortably on this mattress protector. She bought extra mattress protectors so she will always have a clean one. She is thankful to the company because they made this product.

The customer allows the older dog to sleep with her. The dog wets the bed and now the customer just has to wash the mattress protector instead of the other bedding. The dog will sleep on it and he will not scratch it away. I would not let a dog sleep on my bed if it wet the bed. This is unsanitary and too much work to allow the dog to sleep on the bed. The customer rated the product 5-stars and they are very happy with the product. The dog is pleased with the product as well. The customer has said the dog has not stopped smiling since he has been sleeping on the mattress protector.

The customer says it is a great product and rates it 5-stars. The customer stops there though and does not write why it is a great product or why they rated it 5-stars. It is necessary to know why the product is working so well for the customer. The review has no value for helping a shopping customer to buy the mattress protector or not. The customer says it fits well over the middle of the mattress but itis hard to keep under a wiggly 4-year-old. It rips off easily when it needs to be clean. The customer says it needs to be designed better like maybe with some velcro strips.

This would be to hold the mattress protector in place. This is why the customer rated it 4-stars. Another customer rates it3-stars because it only fits half of their king-size bed. The customer days the mattress protector is supposed to fit a king-size mattress. The customer says it works perfect but why does it work perfectly? Does it absorb urine and water leaving the mattress underneath it dry? Does the customer feel comfortable sleeping on the mattress protector? The review does not give any hint why the mattress protector works so well. The customer rates the product 5-stars but the customer does not explain why.

The mattress supposedly has been lab-tested but those tests or their results were not covered.

Feedback: There have been over 4900 reviews written about the product. So, it is a well-known product. The male customer says it fits his king-size bed perfectly and it is quiet, in the fact, that it makes no plastic noise when he moves on it. The thing that bothered him is that there was a sewing defect in the mattress protector. A seam was sewn over a “gather” (gathering is a sewing technique where the strip of fabric is shortened so the longer piece can be attached to the shorter piece. The stitching threads are drawn up to fabric forms small folds along the threads.) This made the mattress protector lie unevenly.

The customer originally rated the product 3-stars and the company read the review. They contacted the customer apologized for the design flaw and sent him a new one. They said to keep the old one as a spare. The customer says this was great customer service (it was) and he upgraded the rating to 5-stars. Not only did the company send the customer a new mattress protector for free they told him to keep the old one as a spare. This is excellent customer service as was discussed above.

Mattress Protector

Feedback: The customer says they had a surprise test on how well the mattress protector works. One of the pups wet on the bed and the customer took off the mattress cover and the urine did not penetrate the mattress. The customer wiped off the mattress protector and said washing was optional. The customer said they put the mattress protector on the bed by themselves. It was a chore but they did it. They started at the bottom of the mattress and worked toward the top. They found this to be the best way to get the mattress protector over the mattress. The customer suggests if you apply the protector to a large-sized bed get two people to apply the mattress protector to the mattress.

The customer says the product makes noise every time you get on the bed. If the dogs get on the bed and they are wet the mattress protector will absorb the moisture and it will not get into the mattress. Why would you let a wet dog jump on your bed? It does what it says it will. The customer does not love the product and rated it 3-stars. Most likely because it is a noisy mattress protector.

We have discussed some of the top-quality mattress protectors on the market today. Some received thousands of reviews others received several reviews written about the mattress protector. This does not mean that because a mattress protector has a few reviews written about it that it is not a quality mattress cover. And just because a mattress protector has thousands of reviews written about it does not mean it is a quality mattress protector.
