A roll mattress, mattress protector or soft sheet – dear child has many names. Whatever you call it, it can be a great help and save you both time and money in the long run.

A mattress topper is the top layer between the mattress (or mattress topper) and the sheet. It is a soft, thin mattress that serves a hygienic purpose and makes your bed or mattress a little extra comfortable. A mattress topper will always be a wise investment.

What is a mattress pad?

A roller mattress also goes by the name “gentle layer” and is thin and flexible. It is usually mounted on the mattress with elastic corner straps and can be easily removed and washed.

Do not mistake a roll-top mattress and a top mattress , which is a thick (approx. 5 cm) mattress that lies on top of your regular mattress . The roller mattress can extend the life of your mattress and save you a lot of expenses as it can be washed – unlike many mattress toppers and mattresses. A mattress topper can moderate the experience of the underlying mattress, extend its life and improve your sleep quality,

Is a mattress pad necessary?

A mattress protector like a mattress pad is useful in many ways. It protects the mattress from the sweat and evaporation that the body releases during the night. Without a mattress pad, your mattress or mattress topper will absorb this moisture and wear out prematurely. In addition to the protective and hygienic benefits, a mattress pad prevents your sheets from sliding around and adds an extra thin and soft layer to your nighttime comfort.

Can a mattress pad be washed?

Roll-top mattresses are both washable and easy to remove from the bed and put in the washing machine. Washing a mattress or mattress pad can be a big job. Although some mattresses have a cover that you can zip off, it is not necessarily washable. Then you just have to hang it out for airing. Conversely, most roll-top mattresses can be washed at 60 degrees, so i.a. dust mites die.

Some mattress pad even have an antibacterial or anti-allergic treatment that prevents bacteria or dust mites from multiplying.

Which mattress pad is the right one?

Which mattress pad you should choose depends on both the size of your mattress and your individual preferences. Mattress toppers can be made of polyester, cotton or a mixture of materials. Take some time to consider what you prefer and whether you need extra protection against bacteria and dust mites.
