Dispose of your old mattress. If you’ve determined you need a new mattress because you are no longer receiving the support you need, then the last thing you should be doing is passing that discomfort on to someone else. Rather than selling your mattress or passing it on to a family member or friend, check to see if the purchase of your new bed includes some sort of disposal for your old mattress. Frequently, the folks who deliver your new mattress will be able to take away your old bed. If you’re embarrassed by the condition of an old, worn out mattress, you can use an old bed sheet as an inexpensive solution. Simply cover the old mattress with the old bed sheet, send it off and enjoy your new bed!
While growing up, I used to babysit our neighbor’s children. When she learned I’d gotten engaged, she invited me to her home one day to suggest I purchase a latex mattress like hers. She pulled the sheets off her king size bed so that she could show me how the mattress had not sagged, and pointed out how the corners and edges were still firm after an extraordinary amount of time. I wish I could remember the exact number of years she’d told me that she and her husband had been using their mattress, but I do remember that because of her little demonstration, I knew that I wanted to purchase a latex mattress just like it even though I later found that it would cost me about twice what the average ’spring’ mattresses were selling for at the time. I searched the local furniture stores, but could not find this latex mattress anywhere. I remembered that when we had moved south, my mother had purchased much of her furniture from a sales rep at a large furniture store in a nearby town. He said that although the store did not stock this mattress, he could order it, and I asked him to order a solid latex mattress for me \"SIGHT UNSEEN.\"
Another consideration when purchasing a new organic latex mattress is the type of cover that the manufacturer uses. The cover should be 100% organic. While there are different options for the type of material used in the cover, cotton is the best option. Bamboo, on the other hand, is a poor choice because of the process it goes through to be made into a fabric. Many hazardous chemicals are required to process bamboo thus making it \"un-organic.\" Most bamboo fabric is manufactured in China where the employees are subjected to poor working conditions and little or no ventilation. There are many \"gimmick\" fabrics available, such as aloe vera and lavender infused fabrics that are supposed to help with one ailment or another. Honestly, don’t waste your money. They don’t work. And if they did, they wouldn’t be able to make it through your sheets to get to your body. Hemp is good quality fabric but tends to be more expensive than cotton with no additional benefits. While the cover is the one part of the mattress that you will come in contact with, many manufacturers use a cheap, sometimes uncomfortable cover on their mattresses. The cover should be soft and comfortable to the touch. Although sheets should always be used on your mattress, a rough, uncomfortable cover will come through the sheets and make your sleeping experience less than desirable. If you are unsure about the cover that is being used to make your mattress, ask for a sample to be sent to you so you can feel it out before you buy the mattress. Any reputable company would be more than happy to fill your request. A lot of companies will send you a sample pack of all the ingredients that make up their bed, but this is simply overkill and an unnecessary gesture. Unless you are concerned about latex allergies, the latex used in your mattress is pretty much the same from company to company.
