I can’t even imagine not using a mattress protector on a mattress. We grew up using them, and we always use them now as well. It’s a great way to limit the dust and dead skin cells from gathering in your mattress. They really help prolong the life of your mattress’ as well. It’s really impossible to actually clean and disinfect a mattress through and through. Surface cleaning is what is really going on. Nowadays we have bed bugs, and creepy crawlies to contend with. The whole thought of that is beyond gross. This mattress protector can actually be your third layer of protection since it’s not padded. Your mattress fits inside of it, and zippers shut. It’s an encasement for your mattress. This particular mattress protector is from Goodgram’s. It’s made out of 100%polyester. I have problems with that fabric, so I would have to use a regular mattress protector over that. Since your mattress has to fit entirely inside of this product, I recommend it anyway. It’s not convenient to just take this off and wash it. You do not have to worry about shrinkage with this though because of what it is made out of. They call this a triple protection layer: waterproof, allergen resistant, and bed bug resistant. It is really waterproof too. I poured a ton of water on it, and it just on top of it like a puddle; too cool. There is minimal stitching overall on this unit, but what there is was done tight and on point. It has that faint, normal sent to a polyester fabric like this. Nothing strong or out of the ordinary. Overall, I find this mattress protector to be a solid form of protection for your mattress. They offer it in all sizes as well. The particular one that I tested, was in full size.
I was afforded the opportunity to review GoodGram’s Hypoallergenic Waterproof Anti BedBugs/Dust Mites Zippered Mattress Cover Protector with Bed Bug Blocker – Assorted Sizes (Full), in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.
