Protect-A-Bed Review

Protect-A-Bed is the creator of the world’s first ultra thin mattress protector. Their mattress protectors are made from natural cotton Terry toweling with a polyurethane Miracle membrane backing. It’s 100% waterproof, breathable, allergy free, easy to care for and helps make your sleep environment more comfortable. Protect-A-Bed is proud to be the #1 best-selling mattress protector and sells more than 2 million of them each year.

This product is great for people with allergies because it protects against bed bugs and dust mites. Yuck! I don’t even want to THINK about that because it just freaks me out! I’m happy to know that my bed is now protected!

Protect-A-Bed has a variety of products including pillow protectors, crib protectors for you wee one, and of course, mattress protectors. I tried out the Premium Mattress Protector which is their popular mid market model. It’s completely waterproof and repels liquid like urine or sweat. It’s also breathable and allows airflow through the mattress and bedding. Did you know that the human body loses at least a half-litre of body fluids through the skin pores and mouth as well as millions of skin flakes? I had no clue! An unprotected mattress can create a breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites which is a major cause of asthma, eczema and rhinitis. Wow- I really had no idea about this! Before finding this company, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a mattress protector, but I am happy I know about it now!

When I first got my Protect-A-Bed mattress protector, I washed it in hot water as per the instructions. It goes on very easily on my mattress like a fitted sheet. I have a double mattress, but the protectors come in all sizes. I then put my sheets and comforter over top. I found it very pleasant to sleep on and I was comfortable. I didn’t wake up with night sweats as I sometimes do. It’s also very thin so it won’t detract from the comfort of your mattress. I also liked that it has 10 year warranty and that Protect-A-Bed stands by their products.

The price for the Premium Mattress Protector I received is $110. I think its worth the investment though since you are getting protection against allergens and it will last you a long time. Its also backed by the warranty so you know it will last.

To purchase any of Protect-A-Bed products, please visit their website or find a store near you.
