I've learned so much from this site, and have found so many other links to helpful products.
This brought me to mattress protectors. I've had an older one for a few years, nothing special, fits very well, cotton/poly and a terry style wrap around. Paying careful attention to the many valuable links and posts here, I thought a new separate topic was warranted, especially since stains, etc.. can and will void a mattress warranty.
My needs are fairly simple.
1. Maybe just a hint of comfort on top, no thick quilt.
2. BREATHABLE - Don't want to defeat the purpose of the new mattress altogether.
3. Natural fabrics if possible.
4. At least water resistant.
This site led me to many links and discussions. These products are what I found most interesting and suitable.
