The Advantages of Mattress Protectors

Mattress protectors can be purchased to fit all sizes of beds and come in a range of styles.  Prices will vary according to the size of the protector and the type, but the cost is very reasonable when compared with the cost of replacing mattresses.  Not everyone can afford to replace a mattress when it begins to get uncomfortable and a protector can be the obvious solution.

The available mattress protectors also come in different fabric counts.  Percale is the name used for fabric that is often used in bedding materials.  The word is a reference to the weave of the fabric so the actual fibres used will vary, with some being a blend of natural fibres and synthetic fibres and others will be only natural fibres.   Anyone considering this particular type of mattress protector can choose from a 200 or a 330 percale.

The 200 percale is 100% cotton for the top and reverse fabrics, the filling, and the skirt of the mattress protector.  On the 330 percale, it is 100% cotton for the top and reverse fabrics but 100% polyester for the filling and the skirt.

A mattress protector can add to the level of comfort experienced by the user, and these are machine washable.  There is no danger of the filling moving around as close quilting has been used to keep it in place and the protector is easy to care for.  With proper care, it should last for a couple of years and will help to ensure a good night’s sleep.
