Giveaway/Review: Protect-A-Bed Mattress Cover - CLOSED

I have been blessed with both sensitive skin and a dust mite allergy, therefore it is important that I use allergen barrier protectors on both my mattress and my pillow.

When the folks at Protect-A-Bed contacted me about reviewing one of their mattress pad covers, I jumped at the chance! I just so happened to be in need of a new cover - because for the umpteenth time the cover I had purchased at my local superstore was ripped to shreds, and had a broken zipper to boot.

When my Premium Protect a Bed Mattress Cover arrived, I was surprised to see that it is a fitted sheet style cover rather than the full zippered mattress covers that I have purchased in the past. I wasn't sure what to think about this, but will say that after washing the cover and placing it on my mattress I loved how much easier it was to put on my king size bed. (If you prefer full mattress covers, Protect-A-Bed does offer them).

So far I have no complaints about this cover. It appears to be very durable even after washing, and fits my mattress well. I also love that the cover makes no "crinkling" noises (like some waterproof covers do) and is basically undetectable under my fitted sheet.

After about 3 months of use the cover shows no signs of wear, which is more than I can say for almost every other cover I have tried in the past. I also love that the cover comes with a 10 year guarantee. I have found products like these to be somewhat of an investment (at least for my king size bed!), and I have no problem making the investment in a quality product that will not rip to shreds within a few months.

If you have sensitive skin or suffer from allergies like me, or if you can't stand the thought of bacteria and dust mites hanging out in your bed at night (ewwww!!!), then be sure to check Protect-A-Bed out! In my recent experience, they appear to make a high quality product.

In addition to mattress covers they also offer pillow covers, crib mattress covers, mattress pads, and more on their website here. If you prefer to shop in store, you can also find a list of dealers on their website.

The folks at Protect-A-Bed were kind enough to offer one Premium Mattress Cover (any size) to one of my readers!

I am desperately in need of one of these for our son's/guest bed. We have one of those "crinkly-noisy" waterproof ones on there right now. My sister comes to visit all the time and likes the waterproof since she's breastfeeding and tends to have some nighttime "leakage", but the crinkle wakes up the baby! And my son says it makes him hot. They'd all love this!

Years ago, our dog became allergic to dust mites. Yes, he slept with us "blush". It made me more aware of the whole issue and I've wanted a mattress cover ever since. I wash our bedding in hot water, vacuum the mattress, etc. but a cover would be awesome.
Thanks so much for generous giveaways!

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

These look great- and I hate the crinkly sound and the plastic sound from the protectors. I have a pillowtop and sheets do not seem to fit after a few washings so was wondering if you had a pillowtop and if it still fit on top without pulling off corners after washing. We are shopping also for a new mattress and when we get one I want something like this on it from day one.i like the idea of one like a sheet more so its not a challenge putting it on- thank you for the review.
