If you are someone who is unfamiliar with various mattress related terminologies, then let’s start with ‘mattress toppers’, which have grown significantly popular over the years. In simple terms, mattress toppers are an additional layer of memory foam or any other material that is added on top of your mattress in order to improve the feeling of your bed being covered with an extra layer of your choice.

Do Mattress Toppers Actually Work?
Yes, mattress toppers are made to work for all kinds of sleepers. If your current mattress is not feeling right to – maybe it is too stiff or the temperature is not right for you – then a mattress topper will be able to help in adjusting the temperature according to your needs and make your bed more plush or firm.
What Are Mattress Toppers Used For?
Essentially, the main purpose of a mattress topper is to change the feeling of your bed. Depending on what you prefer, you can easily find a mattress topper that can make your bed warmer, cooler, warmer, softer, or even firm. Plus, no matter what you choose, a mattress topper will ensure the protection of your bed from stains and allow it to last longer.
Can You Wash Mattress Toppers?
Wool and down mattress toppers can be put into the washing machine, but latex and memory foam mattresses toppers should be spot-cleaned in order to avoid any shrinkage. Although, to clean a foam mattress topper, you will need to dab the stains with a towel, mixed with vinegar solution in a spray bottle that you can spritz on the stains and then sprinkling some baking soda onto the topper. Afterwards, wait for at least 8 hours and then finally dry the topper with a handheld vacuum.
