Mattress toppers are not all created equal. While there are some great ones in the market, there are other substandard ones too. If you are looking for a the best mattress topper to buy, here are the key points to consider:
The density is indicative of the amount of material used in production. The higher it is the higher the quality of the mattress topper and the more durable it is likely to be. A density of 40 to 50 kg/m³ is recommended.
It can also be a good idea to pay attention to the mattress topper’s thickness. Toppers typically have a thickness of between 4 and 10 cm. Avoid buying toppers with a thickness of less than 4cm.
Toppers don’t necessarily have a degree of firmness like mattresses do, but the material still affects how soft or firm the topper is. Cold foam toppers are usually the firmest while memory foam mattress toppers are the generally the softest.
You should make your selection according to your personal preferences, sleeping position as well as your body size and weight.
The topper’s size will depend on the size of your mattress. The topper needs to perfectly fit the mattress and you need to measure the length, width, and height. If you are using a large topper over two single mattresses, ensure that the topper perfectly covers both of them.
Hygiene is a key consideration. That’s why mattress toppers with a removable and machine-washable cover at a high temperature are recommended. This helps kill bacteria that triggers various allergies.
The vast majority of toppers tend to be too large to be machine-washable, but stains can be removed using a damp cloth, some detergent, and water. If you want to learn more about how to get rid of different types of stains, you should consider checking out various resources online.
