Zippered Plastic Mattress Covers


Zippered plastic mattress covers come in handy, especially when you have kids and or pets. They’re also nice to have on hand when moving, so that the mattress is protected. Another great thing about them is that they’re cheap, which is good for the budget. However, there are a few things that one should know before shopping for a zippered plastic mattress cover.

The first thing you need to know is that they tear easily, but there is a way to keep them from tearing as easy and that is to buy them a size larger. For example, if you want to cover a twin size mattress you buy a full size zippered plastic mattress cover instead of a twin size. It may not be a snug fit, but the mattress will be protected.

You also need to know that they sleep hot. After all, this is plastic we’re talking about here. A couple of things you can do is sleep in lightweight clothing and cover the mattress cover with a cotton sheet. To add to this, there is also the rubbery smell factor, but this tends to fade away in time, however, until it does you can spray it with Febreze.

The fourth and last issue is the annoying crinkly noise that plastic mattress covers make when you move. This means if you’re a person who happens to do a lot of tossing and turning or if you’re a light sleeper it might not be so easy to go to sleep and stay asleep. The good news is that some claim to be noiseless, so I would look for the noiseless feature if I were you.

Plastic vinyl zippered mattress covers often are used for short periods of time and aren’t made to be long lasting. For this reason, and all the reasons mentioned above, they are the cheapest type of mattress protector you can buy. Nonetheless, they work out just fine for those on a budget that need mattress protection right away and then later, when money isn’t tight, get one of higher quality.

When shopping for a zippered plastic mattress cover you would be wise to read reviews and check ratings. This way you will at least be able to make a better informed decision and not waste time and money on a mattress protector that isn’t any good at all.

There are a few good brands on Amazon that are worth taking a look see that have positive reviews and ratings and they are Shop Bedding, J Lamb and Bargoose. Each one of these brands offer zippered plastic mattress covers for under $20.
