How to protect your bed

One of the best ways to secure your bed is to is to have a good quality mattress protector on your bed. A mattress protector provides a barrier against dust-mites, dirt, sweat, mould and even bed bugs!

Because your bed plays such an important part in your life, you want it to be clean and protected from all the nasties that might make their way in, such as mites, dirt and overall wear and tear.

To extend the life of your mattress, ensure you have a mattress protector, pillow protector, and regularly washed bed linen, as well as making sure the mattress itself is checked often to avoid sagging.

With the proper steps taken, you can create a bed that is fresh and clean and hard to get out of in the mornings!



Use a mattress protector:

One of the best ways to secure your bed is to is to have a good quality mattress protector on your bed. A mattress protector provides a barrier against dust-mites, dirt, sweat, mould and even bed bugs!

Having a mattress protector means less time cleaning the mattress itself – simply pop your mattress protector in the washing machine every other month and it’s good as new!

Depending on your specific needs and sleep health, you may need a waterproof mattress protector, such as our Coral Fleece Mattress Protector, or if you prefer a temperature regulated bed, you could try our Bamboo/Wool Mattress Protector. Both offer incredible technology that will protect you while you’re sleeping, while also coming in a range of sizes that the whole family can enjoy!

Alternatively, our Sleep Easy Mat is a fantastic choice for providing protection from night-time accidents, drawing away liquid from the top layer of the bed.

Use a pillow protector:

Just like our mattresses need protection, so do our pillows! The place where our heads rest every single night, our pillows over time can pick up dirt, sweat, bacteria, dust-mites and more! By having an extra barrier between our pillows and pillowcases, we can protect our faces, whilst also extending the lives of our pillows.

A good quality pillow protector is a great investment for that extra bit of security while you sleep, and there are a few options. Our Coral Fleece Pillow Protectors, alike the mattress protector, is waterproof and antibacterial.

Our Thermal Balancing Pillow Protector uses outlast technology to manage temperature control, and is a great option for those who tend to get a bit too hot or cold during the night, whilst adequately protecting you and your pillow.

Make sure your mattress is supportive:

Sleeping on your mattress every night, in the same spot, can often create unwanted sags and lumps around your mattress. When this happens, it might be your first thought to toss the mattress and buy another, however there are ways to care for your mattress to keep it for longer.

Flipping and rotating your mattress regularly can help to aid aches and pains you might be feeling from sleeping on the same parts of your mattress.

By building your bed correctly from inception and including all of the proper elements, such as a mattress protector, mattress topper, underlay and pillow protectors, you can greatly improve your mattress and your sleep health.

Wash your bed linen regularly:

It’s no secret that we should be washing our bed linen every 1 – 2 weeks, not only to protect ourselves and our gorgeous linen, but also to prevent unwanted dirt and bacteria from seeping into the bed.

The more often you wash your fitted sheets, flat sheets, quilt covers, pillowcases and throws and cushion covers, the less likely you’ll get nasties on your bed!



Taking the time to properly protect your bed, can massively impact your overall health, so make sure you’re taking the right steps today! If you don’t know where to start, make sure you check out our bedroom range here.
