  • Standard Waterproof Mattress Pad - A GOOD padded cover with a waterproof barrier that provides protection for your mattress.
  • Cotton Top Waterproof Mattress Pad - A BETTER alternative to our standard pad. It adds an additional cotton top and more polyester fill to add comfort.
  • Beautyrest Cotton Top Waterproof Mattress Pad - Our BEST waterproof mattress pad. A high quality pad with even more fill and a polyurethane barrier. Polyurethane is breathable and allows heat exchange. Vinyl does not allow air to pass through it.
  • Premium Mattress Cover - A new alternative in mattress protection. This revolutionary product is a thin, durable cover that is waterproof yet breathable. A unique polyurethane membrane allows air to pass through the membrane, but repels liquid. The thin cotton toweling on the top helps soak up liquid should an accident occur. This thin product dries much faster in the dryer than traditional mattress pads so if you plan on frequent washings, this is the product for you. Unlike mattress pads, this product is also stain proof.
  • Vinyl Covers - Our inexpensive vinyl covers are zippered (they fully encase the mattress) to lock out moisture and dust mites. We offer two thicknesses for standard sized mattresses and box springs(up to 9in) and one thickness for deeper pillow top mattresses (up to 16in deep).
