Mattress Protectors

If you have spent money investing in the perfect mattress, it is worthwhile in investing in methods of protecting it. A mattress protector will protect the mattress against stains, dust mites, wear and tear, which ultimately extends the life of your mattress. Pillow Talk offers a wide variety of mattress protectors, from waterproof to bamboo cotton to washable wool protectors – there’s one to suit you and your mattress.

Many of our mattress protectors come in two styles:
Corner strap – with 4 elastic straps to go over the corners of your mattress
Fully Fitted – with an elastic skirt to cover the side of your mattress and fit snugly underneath. It is important to enquire if the depth of the fitted skirt is the correct depth for your mattress.

While many people wisely invest in protecting their mattress, they often neglect to protect their pillows. Both mattress protectors and pillow protectors are much easier to launder than a mattress or pillow, helping to eliminate a potential breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites. As with mattress protectors, a pillow protector will also extend the life of your bedding, and protect from moisture, which your body loses during sleep.
