Is a mattress topper the same as a mattress protector?
A mattress protector is used to protect your expensive, precious mattress from dust, spilled liquids, and allergens etc. On the other hand, a mattress topper is used on top of your mattress to add firmness or softness, cooling and more life while also providing protection. Both are useful additions to your bed.
Mattress protectors are thinner and are made from bedding fabrics like polyester or cotton, with waterproofing to avoid liquid permeating through. Whereas, mattress toppers are generally made using the same foams as you’ll find in a mattress, including gel or memory foam, to give the extra support needed to cushion or align the body. Toppers are placed on your bed’s top, while protectors provide a more cozy fit with fabric sides that pull down similar to a fitted sheet or elasticated straps.
You can easily clean a mattress protector, as they can generally be washed in the machine. However, the process of cleaning a mattress topper is often more complex. They can’t be put into a washing machine, although a few toppers have removable washable covers.
