To Sleep Perchance Not to Sneeze All Night Long: My Review of the Protect-A-Bed Mattress Protector ( and the best part is that it will include a give-a-way of the same product too!)

I have a great life.  I really do.  Granted, not everything is the way that I would want it, but overall I am a pretty happy person, although I struggle with chronic allergies and asthma.  There is nothing that can quite kill a good mood like an allergy attack, especially one that occurs in the middle of the night.  I am particularly allergic to dust mites so it is a given that when I climb into bed I stand a good chance of having an attack as soon as I drift off into a peaceful slumber.  I have pillow encasements on all my pillows and had been using a mattress protector as well but it didn't seem to be doing me much good.

I was offered the opportunity to test for this review a Premium Mattress Protector from Protect-A-Bed!  Although I was provided with one with no cost to me by Protect-A-Bed, I really took my time and gave this product a month to see if it could deliver and it sure has!  I have seen a significant reduction in my night-time allergy attacks and I am a much happier person during the day.  It was easy to use and very comfortable to sleep on. 




Here's some info provided by the company which does a good job explaining what makes their product different then the other mattress protectors offered for sale:

Protect-A-Bed mattress and pillow products:



• Are made of a natural terry cotton surface that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter, providing a soft, quiet and comfortable sleep zone.

• Are ultra thin with four-way stretch that does not detract from the comfort of the mattress.

• Feature the proprietary Miracle Membrane®, a new age air vapor porous fabric, which is waterproof and protects against all liquids and bodily fluids that may otherwise revoke a mattress’s warranty.

• Are especially helpful in cases of incontinence and bed wetting.

• Include Allerzip® mattress encasements, which feature the patented Bug Lock® three-sided zipper system with Secure Seal™, the world’s first scientifically proven bed bug entry, escape and bite proof innovation.

• Are hypoallergenic to permit a hygienic and anti-allergy sleep zone.

• Prevent dust mites, bacteria and other allergens from breeding in a mattress, which can cause respiratory illnesses like asthma, eczema and rhinitis.

• Can be machine-washed and tumble-dried up to 200 times without losing effectiveness.

• Are recognized as a Class 1 Medical Device by the Food and Drug Administration and have received the Good Housekeeping Seal.

• Are manufactured in all bed sizes, including a unique crib-sized protector which stretches to fit tightly like a fitted-sheet.

In addition to the mattress protector I was given for review, they also make full mattress encasements, mattress padscrib protectors, pillow protectors, and other accessories, all with the same features as the item I just reviewed. 


You can purchase Protect-A-Bed products through their website and they are also offered for sale in many retail stores throughout the country.  Here is a dealer locator page to help you find one close to you!

Wishing you a sneeze-free sleep!
