Rest Easy: Top Tips for Taking Care of Your Mattress Topper in College

Posted by Savannah Branch on

College life can be stressful and busy, but it's important to ensure you're taking care of yourself, including getting enough sleep. One way to improve your sleep quality is by investing in a Sleepyhead Mattress Topper. This topper can provide extra cushioning and support to your bed, helping you get a more comfortable and restful sleep. However, it's important to take care of your Sleepyhead Mattress Topper during the school year to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Here are some tips for caring for your topper:
  • Use a fitted sheet: Put a well-fitted sheet over the topper. A fitted sheet can help protect your topper from spills, sweat, and other accidents. Make sure the fitted sheet is a snug fit and doesn't bunch up, which can cause discomfort and wear and tear on your topper.
  • Air out your topper: Your Sleepyhead Mattress Topper should be aired out regularly, especially if you tend to sweat a lot at night. This can help prevent moisture buildup and keep your topper smelling fresh. You can air out your topper by simply removing the sheets and opening up your windows for a few hours.
  • Spot clean spills and stains: If you do spill something on your topper, it's important to clean it up as soon as possible. Use a mild detergent and water or baking soda to spot-clean the affected area. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as this can damage your topper.
  • Wash your topper cover: You can easily remove the cover from your topper and wash it in the washing machine. We recommend doing this at least every 2 weeks to ensure your topper is always fresh and clean.
  • Rotate your topper: To prevent uneven wear and tear on your topper, it's a good idea to rotate it every few months. This can help distribute your weight evenly and prevent sagging.
  • Don't use a mattress protector: While you may be tempted to use a mattress protector to protect your topper from spills and stains, we don't recommend it. Mattress protectors can trap heat and create moisture, which can lead to mold and mildew growth. If you do use a mattress protector, you will need to clean your topper cover twice as much as you would need to without the protector.
  • Store your topper properly: If you need to store your topper during the school year or while you’re back home for the summer, make sure it's properly cleaned and completely dry before storing it. Roll it up and store it in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your Sleepyhead Mattress Topper lasts as long as possible and continues to provide you with comfortable and restful sleep throughout the school year. Remember, taking care of yourself includes taking care of your bedding!
