Should I get a waterproof mattress protector?

We recommend a waterproof protector for the most defense. However, some waterproof protectors can be made entirely of synthetic materials that are treated with harsh chemicals. We recommend opting for an organic waterproof mattress protector as a more natural option that still fully protects your mattress.

How do you clean a mattress protector?

Typically, you should wash a mattress protector in your washing machine. Always read the instructions since each protector is different. Some protectors may require that you lay them flat to dry, while others can go in the dryer on low heat.

How often should you wash a mattress protector?

We recommend every 1-2 months. Always wash your protector immediately if there has been an accident!
