If you’re part of the 2% of American adults who suffer from a lack of bladder control during sleep, or you’re caring for someone who is, you know that dealing with soiled beds can be expensive, stressful, and time consuming. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Protect your investment by covering your mattress in a waterproof product.
Fitted premium mattress covers work great as a base protection. Covers consist of lightweight terry cloth fused to a polyurethane backing which helps you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Because covers are fitted, they’re easy to take on and off for quick laundering. Also, since they are breathable, they easily dry in one cycle, unlike heavier, vinyl covers.
For quick changes or frequent urination, try using washable underpads, also known as overlays. They help minimize your laundry load since they lay on top of the fitted sheet, protecting the bedding and mattress below. These washable underpads are either flat or with tuck in sides to keep the bed pad in place. With an extra absorbent layer that can hold up to four cups of fluid and a bottom layer that prevents urine from soaking through the sheets or mattress, there’s no need to worry about laborious, messy cleanups after accidents. Underpads are lightweight and easy to remove and replace during the night without having to strip the entire bed.
When accidents do occur, OdorZyme is a great enzyme based product for quick cleanups and as a laundry additive. It is an easy, one-step, spray on urine removal product that helps get rid of both stubborn odors and stains. OdorZyme is a favorite around the office because it also works great as a bathroom cleaner, and on pet stains, too.
While these products don’t prevent adult bedwetting from occurring, they will make cleaning easier and faster.
