Sleep Safely: Buy PVC-free Mattress Covers
January 7, 2010

On the hunt for PVC-free mattress cover for you and your kids?
Great news! Most mattress covers that are labeled as “allergy relief ” or “bed bug relief” mattress encasements are actually made of polypropylene, polyethylene, or polyester.
You need to watch out for those mattress covers that have a outer “membrane” or an inside layer of plastic, because they are usually made of vinyl or polyurethane. The “membrane” type encasements are also easier to identify because they’re usually not padded. Because it takes time-consuming research to find out whether it’s actually PVC, we recommend avoiding that style altogether when shopping for a mattress cover for your family and kids.
