Tested by Mandy Gunby with Jennifer, 4, Wallaceburg, Ont.
Twin: 39″ x 75″; contoured skirt fits mattresses up to 22″ deep
Facing: 80% cotton terry cloth, 20% polyester. Backing: 100% waterproof polyurethane.
The polyurethane backing is breathable and allows body perspiration to escape through microscopic holes, without letting liquid pass through. As well, the polyurethane membrane blocks out allergen molecules and a protective barrier helps prevent dust mites. Comes with a 10-year warranty. Also available in long twin, full, long full, queen, king and California king. Machine washable. White only.
“You can’t feel plastic or hear crinkling, it is excellent quality and feels so natural. It washes well—no smells or stains—and Jennifer said ‘It felt comfy!’ It is inconspicuous and would allow a child to feel protected, without anyone noticing that it is there.”
“There has been minor dampness on the bottom sheet around the spot where my daughter urinated, and the mattress was barely damp to touch.”
