I was required to buy this mattress protector through standard furniture in order to keep our warranty. I absolutely love the texture and breathibility of this protector. However, my mattress is already stained. The bed has never been touched without the protector being on it and I have been very careful to follow all washing instructions so I didn’t end up with a stained bed. I guess the price doesn’t mean better protection that a $10 cover from Walmart. I have only had this bed and cover for about 13 months too, no where near the 10 years I expected it to last as the product states. Very disappointed.
