Posted by DreamFit Team on

When investing in a high quality DreamFit® mattress protector, it is important to continue proper care to ensure the layer of protection for your mattress stays in top shape. Our mattress protectors are designed to provide the ultimate protection and comfort, and with proper care, they can last for years. Use our comprehensive guide on how to machine wash and dry your DreamFit mattress protector to ensure it stays in pristine condition.

Machine Wash Your Mattress Protector

Before First Use

We strongly recommend washing your mattress protector before its first use. This helps to remove any manufacturing residues and ensures it’s fresh and clean for your bed.


Choosing the Right Detergent

Use a mild detergent that does not contain bleach, bleaching agents, or fabric softeners. Bleach can damage the protective polypropylene backing on your mattress protector and will void your warranty. Reach for a gentle, bleach-free detergent to maintain the integrity of the protector.

Mattress Protector Washing Instructions

1. Cycle Selection: Select the gentle or delicate cycle on your washing machine. This setting uses a slower agitation and spin speed, which helps to protect the fabric and the protective backing of your mattress protector from excessive wear and tear. A gentle cycle ensures that your mattress protector maintains its integrity and continues to provide optimal protection for your mattress.


2. Temperature: Use cold or cool water for washing your mattress protector. Hot water can cause damage to the protective polypropylene backing, reducing its effectiveness. Cold or cool water is sufficient for cleaning and helps to preserve the quality of the materials. Maintaining a lower water temperature is key to ensuring the longevity of your mattress protector.


3. Load Management: It’s crucial to wash your mattress protector by itself or with similar items to avoid unnecessary abrasion. Do not wrap the protector around the agitator in top-loading machines, as this can stretch and distort the fabric. Avoid washing it with towels, jeans, or items with zippers, buttons, or other abrasive materials. These can cause physical damage, such as pilling, tearing, or wearing down the protective layer, thereby decreasing the lifespan of your mattress protector.

Frequency of Mattress Protector Washing

We recommend washing your mattress protector at least once every two months. However, if you have pets or suffer from allergies, you may need to wash it more frequently. Additionally, if any liquid spills or gets on your mattress protector, remove and wash it immediately to prevent stains and odors.

Machine Dry Your Mattress Protector

Drying Instructions

1. Tumble Dry: Set your dryer to the lowest heat setting to tumble dry your mattress protector. This gentle heat helps to avoid damaging the fabric and protective backing, ensuring the protector retains its effectiveness and longevity.


2. Immediate Removal: As soon as the drying cycle finishes, promptly remove the mattress protector from the dryer. This prevents wrinkles and helps maintain its shape. Place it back on your mattress right away to ensure it’s ready for use and continues to fit perfectly.
