This Halloween marks GhostBed’s 3rd year Anniversary. So, first off, let me say, Happy Anniversary! I absolutely love the name of this company. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays after all.
I was sent their King sized Ghostbed mattress protector. This protector will be great on almost any mattress, but it’s ideal to pair it with any GhostBed mattress. I personally own a newer Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress, so that is what I used to test out this mattress protector. First off, let me state some company stated features about this mattress protector:
1. Works best with the GhostBed mattress.
2. GhostGrip: 2 inch thick elastic band encases entire bottom for maximum stability.
3. Comfort: Super soft knit top provides quiet breathability.
4. Security: Total water-proof barrier with long-lasting durability after every wash.
5. Technology: Non-migrating antimicrobial technology helps eliminate allergens.
This mattress protector also has a 10-year limited warranty and free shipping! I absolutely love free shipping! I was so excited to be able to try out this product. I have asthma and insane allergies, and suffer from frequent anaphylactic reactions. The mattress protector I purchased when I bought my mattress was nothing like the description, when I ordered it online. It’s thin, a little noisy, and slides on my oversized mattress. It’s pretty annoying. I have to keep a clean bed, clean room, or I have trouble breathing, sleeping, and my skin will, itch, itch, itch. I am highly allergic to dust, and dust mites. Both hazards in a bedroom due to all the fabric involved in that room. That is why I must always use a mattress protector.
This GhostBed mattress protector arrived quickly in the mail, even with its’ free shipping. I received it in a few days. When it arrived, it arrived nicely packaged, and with a card explaining about the product, proper care and installation, and what the minimal warranty covers.
When I first opened the mattress protector, what I did NOT notice, was wonderful for me and my allergies. I did not detect any chemical smell. I have literally had many anaphylactic reactions opening mattress protectors, clothing, pillows, and more, from products. They use so many poisonous chemicals to “size” materials and treat foam, nowadays. Chemicals like Formaldehyde, lead, mercury…. When I went mattress shopping and couch shopping, I actually brought a formaldehyde reader with me. The results were terrifying. So, I was able to open this product up, pull it out of the package, wave it around to open it, and place it directly on my bed without even a sniffle. My respiratory system is quite happy with this Ghostbed Mattress Protector!
My mattress is around 22” thick. It is a beast, and I love it. However, I do have issues finding sheets, etc.. for it, lol. I am quite happy to announce that this protector fits beautifully on it. The protector has a soft outer covering on the top, a more sheet like material on the sides, and an enormous and wonderful 2” wide elastic band on it. This protector not only fits my bed, but WOW, holds it in place perfectly. It passed the jump, wiggle and squirm test by my big and adorable 11-year-old son, lol. I am 5’3” with big hair, and I have to lean and pull, etc.. to put the sheets on my bed. It didn’t even slide while I was doing that! This really is fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!!!!!! I cannot stress that enough.
As I have been sleeping on this mattress protector, I have not even noticed the protector. That right there is a blessing. It has not smelled, or bothered my allergies. I have not been awoken with my asthma and allergies, due to this protector. It has cut that insane dust smell I always get. My dust allergy is off of the charts, I have been told.
I have not awoken to bunched up sheets, due to the mattress protector sliding on our bed. In the morning the sheets are still on the bed, not pulled up on the corners, as they had been daily with my prior mattress protector. It does not slide, finally a mattress protector that does not slide, lol! The Ghost Grip elastic band really does its’ job.
We have not woken up sweaty or itchy; no skin irritations at all. This protector keeps our skin cool and dry. Overall, it has been doing its’ job perfectly. I am in love with this product, no lie!
The quality is fantastic. Mine is so well made. There was not a snag, or a tiny thread to trim off upon arrival. It is easy to wash. I have a front loader washing machine, so no agitator. It fits well. I wash on eco-cool, which is no extra electricity cooled water, lol. Do not add bleach or a bleach alternative to the wash with this mattress protector. Then it states to hang dry, or tumble dry on low heat air. Do not place it in the dryer alone, though. Place other linens or towels with it. This will help it from twisting itself up tightly, on itself. If you have a shower with a shower rod, just hang it over that. It fits perfectly. The company also states to not use strong detergents and fabric softeners on it. They can destroy the water proof barrier. It does come with a 10-year limited warranty, which speaks volume for their quality control. Big thing though, do not forget to register your product with them at www.GhostBed.com within 30 days.
Overall, I have nothing but positive to state about this product. I truly love it. I have never spent this much on a protector, and now I wouldn’t blink an eye. I have wasted money on many protectors in my past, that haven’t lived up to their promise, in the least. Pennies are hard earned, and this gal hates wasting money! I highly recommend you check out their website and what they have to offer. They do sell what looks like to be a fantastic line of mattresses. If I love their mattress protector this much, I can imagine the mattress!
