Keeping Your Mattress Protectors Fresh

Waterproof mattress protectors can be a godsend when your little ones are in night time toilet training mode. These mattress covers play a vital role in keeping your mattress in a good state, and allowing your child to be comfortable as they sleep.

However, it’s very important these items are kept fresh. Their very nature means that they may encounter unwanted things on a regular basis, so you don’t want them going bad.

In our latest Brolly Sheets blog, we give you a few pieces of advice on how to keep your mattress protectors fresh and let them continue to play a vital role against bed wetting.


Clean Regularly

The most important factor when it comes to ensuring your mattress protectors stand the test of time is to clean them regularly.

Brolly Sheets has waterproof mattress protectors that are made with a combination of poly cotton,  polyester padding, polyurethane laminated polypropylene, and stretch polyester.

These sheets are designed to ensure no leakage makes it through to the mattress itself, making them ideal for night training.

These mattress protectors should be washed separately before use, with a cold or warm machine wash and a line dry or warm tumble dry.

Once in use, wash them regularly but do not iron or dry clean them, and don’t use bleach or fabric softeners on them. And if you happen to be using these protectors with an electric blanket, make sure the blanket is on a low setting.


Have a cycle of mattress protectors

With the need to regularly clean mattress covers, having more than one can be a good idea. This allows you to ensure the required mattress is always protected, while still keeping them clean and in a good condition.

Depending on your needs and the regularity of changing required, having 2 or 3 mattress protectors available is not a bad idea.


Ensure your mattress protectors are of the best quality
