Breaking it down


Quiet and breathable. The big downside to waterproof mattress pads is that they can be noisy, crinkling when you roll around, and hot -- they're often made of stifling plastic. That's not a problem with the SafeRest Premium Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector, however. Owners say they barely know it's there, and we spotted only a few complaints of crinkling noises over many thousands of reviews. There were very few complaints of heat retention either; the SafeRest is made of 100 percent cotton and the vast majority of users say it's highly breathable. Best of all, user say it's truly waterproof, and has kept their mattress pristine -- even after red wine spills. It's also fully hypoallergenic, and contains no latex, so is a good choice for those who may have sensitive skin as well.

Ease of use

Machine washable, but may need extra attention. While the SafeRest Premium Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector is machine washable, because it's waterproof, many owners say it can trap water in the folds of the pad. They recommend that you carefully unfold it as you remove it from the washing machine, maybe even giving each section a bit of a shake. Some do that and then run it through one final spin cycle to remove more water. Because of that tendency to hold water, many say that the SafeRest takes a longer time to dry than most of their bedding. This mattress cover comes in a number of standard sizes, including, twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and California king and all are reported as well-fitting and true to size. The twin and full sizes will fit a mattress up to 14 inches deep, the queen sizes and larger will fit up to 18 inches.


Holds up well to multiple washings. In addition to being machine washable, users say the SafeRest Premium Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector looks like new even after dozens of trips through the laundry and retains its waterproof qualities as well. The SafeRest comes with a long, 10-year full replacement warranty, and customer service gets raves for their responsiveness to the scattered durability complaints we saw.
