I’m thrilled to bits with our new Mattress Toppers. These luxurious sleep-enhancers have become really popular in the last few years and lots of AllergyBestBuys customers have asked me for a Topper that will add a layer of protection and comfort to a mattress but also be safe and suitable for asthma, eczema and dustmite allergies.

Most of the Toppers I looked at have to be dry-cleaned, which is costly and impractical for allergy sufferers who need to wash all filled bedding at least once a month. Dry-cleaning kills dustmites but is ineffectual at removing dustmite allergen (the amount is variable between 20-70% ) and no one knows if it removes cat allergen. The residual chemicals from dry-cleaning are also of course bad news for anyone with chemical sensitivity.

I did find a few Toppers made in China that said they were washable, but these could only be laundered in a commercial machine and only at 40°, which will get rid of cat allergen if you run the rinse cycle twice, but won’t remove dustmite allergen.

So finding our new Anti-allergy Mattress Toppers proved to be a big challenge and to see why I’m so pleased with them, please click through to the website here.

    I’d like to buy a mattress topper, since my firm bed is too firm now that I have a hopefully temporary hip issue. A lot of mattress toppers are made out of Latex, to which I’m allergic, or down, which I prefer not to buy out of animal welfare concerns.

    There’s also a topper for back pain price range, with these things clumped under $100 and over $1000. For the latter, I could buy a new mattress. There are also mattress pads that claim to be three inches thick and sound like they to accomplish the same thing as mattress toppers, although I assume they don’t.

    I’m also wondering about the ones that are quilted in large squares, that look about 2 feet by 2 feet. I’d think that surface would be really noticeably uneven.

    Do the ones made out of foam have a chemical smell?

    Does anyone have any info about pros and cons of wool ones?

    Thanks.

    I’m allergic to mites as well, and I have an elaborate setup involving a plastic mattress cover, a wool pad, and a cotton pad. These get washed about every two weeks.
