Hippychick Tencel Fitted Mattress Protectors are high quality, discreet and 100 per cent waterproof and they have to be seen and touched to be believed. Feeling the soft material, it is difficult to see how something that feels so good can be so practical. Tencel is a naturally hygienic fibre made from 100 per cent biodegradable wood pulp cellulose. It is as cool as linen, soft as silk and even more absorbent than cotton.
Tencel's moisture absorption capacity draws away moisture and helps you keep cool even on the hottest of nights. Without moisture the growth of bacteria is inhibited. Without bacteria, mould and mites similarly find life more difficult. The polyurethane layer also acts as an anti allergy barrier - further protecting against mites, which are a major cause of hay-fever and asthma.
With the Tencel fitted mattress protectors, Hippychick has taken a much needed, but also much maligned, product and transform it into a comfortable, soft, undetectable piece of bedding. The mattress protectors are soft, breathable, absorbent and waterproof - a good alternative to sweaty plastic under-sheets. The undetectable layer of polyurethane makes these protectors 100 per cent waterproof without the awful feeling of lying on or being sandwiched between, a crisp packet. On top of all these features, the Hippychick mattress protector range is endorsed by ERIC, the childhood continence charity.
