Accidents happen. Your mattress is at risk everyday of being ruined by fluid spills, urine accidents, dirt and mud tracks, and whatever else your household can throw at it. With the average selling price of a mattress today surpassing $800, it’s more important than ever to protect your investment. Fortunately, with a SafeRest waterproof mattress protector, cleanups are fast and easy:
After a spill or other accident, simply lift the protector off by the elastic band, starting with the corners of the mattress. Take care not to let any liquids spill off of the sleeping surface of the protector. Take the protector directly to a washing machine, either by hand or in a plastic bag.
Wash your protector using a normal laundry cycle with a household detergent that does not contain bleach, as bleach can damage the waterproof lining. Once the wash cycle is done, tumble dry your protector with the rest of your bedding, taking care to only use the low heat settings.
Once your protector is completely dry, you may reinstall it onto your bed along with the rest of your clean bedding. If you suffer from allergies, we suggest routine quarterly launderings to prevent the buildup of dust mite fecal matter or other seasonal allergens.
These same care instructions can be followed to lauder your bed bug encasements, pillow encasements, and crib mattress protectors.
