When you think about exercising it’s safe to say perspiration comes hand in hand. We wear breathable, light weight clothes and in some cases, like gyms, it is mandatory to bring a “sweat towel”. We prepare ourselves that we will sweat and we shower afterwards to make sure we are clean and presentable.
Well believe it or not, you can sweat more while you sleep than when you exercise. So the question we need to ask is, are you prepared for this much sweat in bed?
Summer is here which means hot sunny days and sticky muggy nights. During these summer nights you are more likely to sweat up to 2 litres of fluids. This fluid doesn’t evaporate or miraculously leave the body without a trace. It seeps into the mattress long with the dead skin cells creating your very own eco system! If this doesn’t make you squirm I don’t know what will.
The solution is simple. To stop your eco system growing, developing and giving you all those nasty allergies, all you need to do is cover your mattress with a quality mattress protector.
A mattress protector forms a barrier between you and your beautiful bed. Having a mattress protector is key in promoting quality, hygiene, comfort and reliability in your mattress.
The things to look for when buying a mattress protector:
Waterproof – Offers unrivalled protection against stains and spills, and greatly reduce the ability of mould to grow on a mattress.
Warranty – Look for a range that offers warranty on your mattress protector. This is generally a good indicator on a brand who values their product.
Purchase more than one – When you wash your sheets, wash your mattress protector at the same time. When you have two mattress protectors, it allows your mattress to always be protected.
