From Protect-A-Bed, one of the leaders in bed protection comes the Basic Waterproof Mattress Protector. It is a fact that every night the human body loses one pint of body fluid and millions of skin flakes. Mattresses that are not protected are a breeding ground for bed bugs and bacteria which can cause irritation and can disrupt your sleep. This mattress protector is perfect for allergy sufferers, providing a dust mite barrier. Being waterproof, this protector is also helpful in cases of incontinence and helps to protect your mattress from stains. The breathable 'Miracle Membrane' allows the protector to breathe, reducing humidity and provides an extra level of comfort. The Basic Waterproof Mattress Protector can be washed and tumble dried for ease and convenience.
