Protect-A-Bed Luxury Mattress Protector Review and Give Away

Friday, May 11, 2012 Posted by Dina N

A good night's sleep is essential for me. I need a dark, quiet room that's not too cold and not too warm, and a comfortable bed.

Protect-A-Bed products go a long way in making my bedding snooze-friendly. I love their pillows and mattress protectors. Their Luxury Mattress Protector is a fitted-sheet style protector that keeps me cool in these summer-like temps, and will keep me warm in the winter. The mattress protector fits well on my mattress. It's very soft to the touch and made with all-natural Eucalyptus based fibers. This is the first time I've slept on Eucalyptus fabric! Its fibers work all night to wick moisture away from the mattress. I have sensitive skin, and this particular mattress protector is perfect for me. Eucalyptus fibers are very smooth, even when compared to cotton. The mattress protector is waterproof and comes with a 10-year warranty. In addition, the Protect-A-Bed Miracle Membrane® provides a barrier to dust mites, liquids and irritants. I am very happy with it - what more to ask of a mattress protector? Hmmm, maybe wishing for a goodnight story and a lullaby is a bit much...

The Luxury Mattress Protector is available in a variety of sizes from twin to king. Prices range from $69.99 to $119.99. You can purchase the protectors at specialty stores and online from the Protect-A-Bed website.

Protect-A-Bed is a company that wants to help everyone get a good night's sleep. They recently launched a new blog, . The blog is a great resource that provides information on various sleep issues. The Healthy Sleep Zone discusses sleep-related topics such as allergies, dust mites, pets, sensitive skin, bed bugs, incontinence, bed wetting and sleep pattern issues.

The Giveaway
To celebrate the launch of The Healthy Sleep Zone blog, I am hosting a giveaway! One lucky U.S. reader will win a Protect-A-Bed Luxury Mattress Protector (ARV $120).

    Wow--animals are susceptible t allergens in much the same way humans are--this makes perfect sense, I just hadn't thought about it.

    Eating Right – Avoid rich, heavy meals late at night. Fatty foods are harder to digest, making it uncomfortable to sleep.

    Read the blog post about animals have the same or similar allergies. My dog and I both go through sneezing spells.

    I read that Animal allergies can be managed with medication, just like human allergies.

    Try spending time in the sunlight, particularly in the morning. This can stimulate production of melatonin in the body, which helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle

    From 'Do You Know What Your Sleeping With': Had no idea so much stuff could grow in beddings. I thought mattress protector was just protecting from spills and sand.

    If you share a bed with animals they may cause you to have allergies. Plus animals can have seasonal allergies similar to humans.
    Thanks for this giveaway.

    I had no idea! Animals tend to be allergic to many of the same things people are hypersensitive to such as pollen, mold, dust, house dust mite and foodstuffs!!!

  15. holdenj said...

    The whole thing about discarded human skin cells being meals for dust mites is disconcerting, to say the least! I think I will be doing extra laundry today!

    Wash bedding in water 130 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit and dry them on high. Bleach and non-bleach bleaches are germicidal and will eliminate the vegetative materials.

    Make sure an alarm clock is not within view of the bedside. Waking up in the middle of the night and checking to see the time can actually cause stress, making it more difficult to fall back asleep.

  20. Trung Nguyen said...

    I like that Protect-A-Bed has a variety of products available on their website that can help keep your sleep zone healthy.
