What Is A Mattress Topper?
A mattress topper is a thin layer of padding that is placed on top of a mattress. It can be made from a variety of different materials, this includes memory foam. Using a mattress topper will provide you with more comfort, but also some additional warmth when it gets a little colder outside.
How To Clean A Mattress Topper?
There are various ways to clean a mattress topper. Firstly, you can use a laundry detergent and water mixture, which you can use to remove persistent stains. However, always be careful that you do not oversaturate the mattress topper with water as you clean it, as this could cause damage to it.
Please note that there are some mattress toppers that can be washed in a washing machine, this includes toppers that contain vinyl backing. If you want to make sure that your topper can be machine washed, always check the care label on the product itself.
Removing Dust Mites - In addition to stain removal or a machine wash, it is also a good idea to remove dust mites from the topper on a weekly basis. Just like you would vacuum your mattress, you should hoover the mattress topper properly.
How To Pick A Mattress Topper?
Mattress toppers come in various sizes and thicknesses, which cater to the very specific needs of the customer. Below, we have listed some protectors and toppers you could choose from.
Mattress protector - A mattress protector is usually thinner than a topper, since the sole purpose of this protector is the protection of the mattress, e.g. against bed wetting. Naturally, this kind of protector is mainly used on children's beds.
Memory foam mattress topper - The memory foam topper is used for additional comfort, so these will be significantly thicker than the average mattress protector. They also come in various thicknesses, so you can choose one that suits your mattress best.
Bed toppers - A bed topper can refer to the mattress topper we mentioned earlier, however, it can also be an extra shield between the bottom of the bed and the mattress. Bed toppers can be used to increase the height of the bed, but only as a temporary measure.
How Often Should You Replace Your Mattress Topper?
Thinner toppers should be replaced more often than the thinner options. So, if you have a relatively thin mattress topper, you should replace it every two years. If you have a thicker topper, you should only replace it every five years.
Are Mattress Toppers Worth It?
Mattress toppers are more than worth the investment, especially where personal comfort is concerned. It is also a good option if you find your bed too cold, as a mattress topper could provide some additional warmth in colder temperatures.
Life of your mattress - A topper can protect the lifespan of your mattress like no other. First, it protects the surface of the mattress against stains and odours. It also reduces some of the pressure on the mattress directly, which means it can add a couple of years to your mattress. So, if you invest in a decent mattress, why not add a mattress topper on top to expand its life.
