Mattress Pads and Protectors
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.
St. Dormeir Natural Wool Mattress Pad quilted in 100% cotton terry cloth cover... and it is machine washable.
At $159 for a queen, thanks for this site finding the lowest price (so far)
This one seems a bit puffy for my use, not to mention a bit pricey.

I'm also starting to look for some good sheets.
Learning about sheet myths as well
