Why do so many people buy a case for their phones?
What does that question have to do with mattresses?
If you’re spending that much money on a phone, it would be stupid not to buy a little case to protect your investment. Why should your mattress be any different? I bet you spent more money on your mattress then you did your phone.
I bet you bought one of those new fancy Memory Foam Mattresses too, and you need to know what you should to do to protect it or should you even worry at all?
Just like your phone, you’ll need to protect or cover your new memory foam mattress. Covers are easy to get, but not all covers offer the same protection. So you must find the best mattress cover for your new memory foam bed, but out of the hundreds of them which one is the best fit for you?
That is where we come in. We research and study all these mattress protectors to find the best one that will work for your memory foam bed. We believe in our research so much that the number one pick is what I use on my very own memory foam mattress.
What’s wrong with them?
I want to start off with a bit of a rant. Why don’t these memory foam mattress makers just ship their mattresses with a waterproof protector from the factory already on it? I would pay more for that mattress to already have the cover on it when I open it.
Just a little rumble by me, I’m sure many don’t care and just want to know what the best cover is. So let’s continue…
The best protector – what I sleep on
If you believe in a product – you use that product. That is the case for me when it comes to my number one pick for a mattress protector on my memory foam bed.
The best protector and what I use is the SafeRest Premium Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector. SafeRest Protector for short.
- Dust mites
The biggest reason why I’m a fan of this mattress protector is that it makes no noise. Some of the other protectors will make a crinkly sound which gets old over time. No one likes to feel like there sleeping on plastic.
Okay, I’m confused? What is a Mattress Protector?
Before we move on to talk about the other mattress protectors, I feel we should take the time to better understand what a protector does.
All your modern mattress protectors will look and feel like a bed sheet, so why bother having one if it’s nothing more than a bed sheet? The mattress protector takes it a step further, and it doesn’t allow liquids through. So urine, wine, water, or any bodily fluids won’t go through it. Well, the good mattress protectors will stop the liquid, there are some bad ones, but we won’t talk about them.
Why is this important? Have you ever clean a urine soaked mattress? It’s not fun! Plus it seems like it gets stuck in the bed forever and you can really feel like it’s there all the time. No matter how hard you clean, it stinks. If you have a mattress protector, it will not make it through the cover, and you just take it off and throw it in the washer.
But I don’t wet the bed! Yes, but you’re still human. I don’t wet the bed either but I still enjoy a glass of water in bed, and I’ve been known to spill water. Even though water won’t smell, it can attract mold because let’s face it you’re sleeping on a block of absorbing foam, so it’s a no-brainer to buy a mattress protector for your memory foam bed.
The next best option
It’s not that the Sleep Defense System mattress encasement is bad, it’s actually one the best mattress encasements we have ever seen. But for features, reviews, and warranty it came in second place.
Trust me it was a close second place. Sleep defence puts up a good argument, especially if you have a bed bug problem.
We love how it sleeps cool and also stops water from coming through. Also, one big advantage is that this mattress cover has a zipper to fully encase the mattress. A big feature for bed bugs and dust mites. Full coverage is nice to keep liquids from coming over the edge too.
One problem with full encasement is that they can be harder to put on, the Sleep Defense System was actually easy to put on even for my petite wife.
Last, but not least
Just like before on the second place mattress cover, the third place mattress cover is actually a good mattress cover for a memory foam mattress.
The Hanna Kay Premium 100% Waterproof Mattress Protector is our last option for the best mattress cover. I will say that this mattress protector is softest one we have seen. I like how they don’t do the gimmicks of “bamboo” to make it seem like its better. The bamboo fad is lame and actually causes rashes on some people.
Like all the other protectors this Hanna Kay one is waterproof.
I feel like the Hanna Kay doesn’t get enough attention, so I have a common question review about it here.
