works until you wash it a few times - need to dry carefully?
on July 15, 2009
We bought two of these mattress protectors. They worked really great and we were planning to get more, until they had been washed about 4 times! Then they both leaked. It seems that the rubberized coating underneath does not hold up in the wash. We wash on warm and tumble dry low, no bleach. One leaking protector had a visible but very small spot where the rubber seemed to have disintegrated, and the other one didn't have visible damage but still leaked. Very disappointed.
Amazon's website says there is a guarantee and we will try to see if the company will replace the product. But I am not sure it is worth it if they only last through 4 washes.
Update: The Protect A Bed company said they would replace the mattress covers on my first call. The company also said to dry the covers with bath towels so the backing does not overheat, does not get scratched, and does not stick to the surface of the dryer.
