Here are the main materials to consider: Cotton - This tends to be more expensive than synthetic, as it’s more breathable and better at regulating temperature. Cotton mattress protectors also come in hypoallergenic or anti-allergy options.
Natural cotton is ideal for those with sensitive skin. It’s also great for temperature control and protection. Cotton mattress protectors are often blended with latex or wool, making them moisture-wicking, and dust mite and mold resistant. They’re also very breathable and a good choice for regulating temperature.
Our bedding expert says: “King size mattress protectors measure 150cm x 200cm). If you want to use a topper under the king size mattress protector, choose an extra-deep one.”
While cotton is less soft, breathable, and odor-resistant, the bamboo fabric acquires these important characteristics during its growth.
Best for temperature control & protection. A simple cotton mattress protector is quilted, lightweight and machine washable. Add in latex, wool or moisture-wicking and temperature regulating fabrics and comfort is significantly improved. Mattress pads or toppers with latex and/or wool are dust mite and mold-resistant.
High-end hotels use breathable, polyurethane covers for most of their beds. Having spills or accidents ruin their expensive mattresses is not something that most innkeepers or hotel owners can afford. Because polyurethane covers are breathable and noiseless, most customers don’t realize that they are sleeping on them.
Reasons why bamboo mattress protectors are better
Super Soft - Comparing bamboo to cotton is like comparing cashmere to wool which would give you a more soft and luxurious feel. Skin Friendly - For those that have any form of skin allergies or sensitive skin, bamboo fabric is the best for you.
Even sleeping temperature
Wool breathes, so a woollen mattress topper helps with circulation of air around you when you sleep, this means the wool takes moisture away from your body. This helps you maintain an even sleeping temperature.
HIGH QUALITY: Super soft thick knitted polyester microfiber fabric with polyurethane lamination to provide optimal comfort and long-lasting strength. The smooth polyester top layer is soft and comfortable under the sheets, while the polyurethane laminate is waterproof to offer the utmost protection.
If it’s a new mattress, there is no need to purchase a mattress pad (assuming you are happy with the mattress). A mattress protector on the other hand is all but required. It’s inexpensive, protects your investment, has no visible impact, and shouldn’t dramatically change the way the mattress feels.
A mattress topper is essentially an extension of your mattress. Usually measuring about 4-8 inches thick and providing you with extra comfort and cushiony softness, they’re a great addition to a bed and will help improve a guest’s night’s sleep.
However, bamboo fibers are naturally softer, lightweight and more breathable than even the most expensive, high-thread count cotton. In that sense, thread count isn’t an accurate comparative measure for bamboo and cotton, as bamboo sheets are naturally softer than cotton sheets.
They protect against bedwetting and spills
Modern waterproof mattress covers also offer excellent breathability. So not only do they protect against urine and other accidental spills, they’ll allow good airflow through and from your mattress too.
Hotels and rental properties should change and clean mattress pads as each guest checks out. At home, wash your mattress pads as needed. Know that your guests want the assurance they are checking into a clean room and sleeping in a clean bed.
Typically, hotels wash their linens once a week. That includes sheets, pillowcases, and all kinds of comforters. However, they usually change sheets and pillowcases between guests. Ritz Carlson, the Peninsula, and the Four Seasons chain say they change all bed linen and covers between guests.
