A GUIDE TO OUR MATTRESS PROTECTORS
We are big believers in mattress protectors, especially when they are affordable, waterproof & velvety soft like ours.
They extend the life of a little ones mattress dramatically, never under estimate the value of a good mattress protector. They fend off accidents, stains & sweat. They stop hidden bacteria forming that can create an unsafe sleep environment.
Simply put, our mattress protectors are a highly durable, waterproof and resistant type of fitted sheet that goes over your child’s entire mattress. Crafted by our team here in England using 100% organic terry towel cotton fabric with a PU backing finished with (quick-drying) elastic edging.
They are simple to clean as our mattress protectors can be thrown into the washing machine at 30c & line dried. A huge must if your child is transitioning out of nappies.
Our Laundry Care Advice:
- Wash with similar colours
- Wash at 30c in your washing machine
- Wash weekly or after every accident/spillage
- Out of the washing machine, give the mattress protector a good shake & then line dry
- Turn inside out to ensure that the underneath waterproof layer is dry too before popping back onto the mattress
- Wash before use
30°C uses 38% less energy than washing at 40°C. Wash with other whites as Cotton easily picks up other colours.

Top tip for parents: Layer two fitted mattress protectors under your little ones fitted sheet. If your child has any accidents, leaks or is sick during the early house their mattress remains dry & you have another mattress protector ready on the mattress underneath the soiled one, minimising the need to rummage for another in the dark.
