How do I ensure maximum life for my AeroSleep mattress protector?
Wash the mattress protector every two weeks at 60°C (or sooner in case of a small leak) and use a mild washing cycle with extra rinsing. This eliminates any stains as well as bacteria.
Always wash the mattress protector in a clean washing machine. This is why we recommend wiping the drum of the washing machine clean with a wet wipe prior to washing the protector. It’s also advisable to throw one or two dishwasher tablets in the drum once a month and let the machine run on a hot wash (at least 60°C). New washing machines often include a ‘Clean Drum’ programme.
Always put the mattress protector in the washing machine with the 3D structure on the outside.
Since fluff from other clothing articles easily gets caught in the open 3D structure we recommend washing the mattress protector separately. You can also prevent this by putting the mattress protector in a pillowcase but be sure to zip the pillowcase shut completely or tie it closed.
My AeroSleep mattress protector has discolourations on the inside. What are they?
These discolourations are bits of fluff that get caught in the stitched seams. Fluff is not harmful to your baby, nor does it interfere in any way with the functioning of the mattress protector. Our products are also machine washable at 60°C, a temperature at which all bacteria and allergens are eliminated.
To prevent fluff from forming, it is advisable to wipe the inside of the drum with a damp cloth before you start the washing machine and to always wash the mattress protector with the 3D honeycomb structure on the outside. It is also preferable to wash the protector separately.
Tip 1: At your local supermarket you will find special maintenance products that descale and thoroughly clean your machine, even on the outside of the drum. New washing machines often include a ‘Clean Drum’ programme.
Tip 2: If fluff has already formed the above-mentioned washing technique also helps to remove it. An alternative is to vacuum the mattress protector.
There’s no need to worry if the foam of your mattress starts to discolour. This is completely normal!
This discoloration is caused by exposure to daylight. The polymers used to manufacture the foam absorb UV light, causing the foam to discolour. However, this in no way affects the quality or hygiene of the mattress.
The addition of chemical substances to the manufacturing process would avoid this discoloration but as SafeSleep Innovators we do not want to add unnecessary substances that might be damaging to your child’s health. That is why we have decided against the use of UV stabilisers.
