Yes its cheap vinyl, but it covered my queen pillowtop mattress with a little bit of play left. Now here is the big TIP. I went to the "Original Mattress Factory" show room and bought one their plastic covers they use to ship their matrresses. A nice thick gauage plastic for $5. Use the Mainstay 1st then cover it with the plastic and now you got a tuff little cover for a total $17. Any mattress showroom should have those shipping covers. The one I chose is very close to my residence. BTW, just as I zippered the mattress shut, the zipper broke off, LOL, but its sealed. SO DONT over do the zipper

We bought this Mainstays mattress cover in the queen size to put on the mattress in our camper. What a waste of money! My husband and I read the reviews and thought maybe the people who complained about it tearing were being a little rough with it. It is just plastic after all. Boy, were we wrong! We were very gentle in the way we handled the cover but, still it ripped, a lot! I refused to buy another one so I used duct tape to patch it (It's just for the camper and no one will ever see it). So for what it's worth, save yourself some money and buy a better mattress cover or, just get a plastic drop cloth and some duct tape and make your own cover ( either way it will be better than buying this garbage). I would give this product a - star if I could.

I bought 2 of these to use on new mattresses that I bought for my boy's bunk beds. The minute we tried to slide the top on in place this cover tore from one end to the other. I didn't even attempt the second one. The plastic that came on the mattresses was a better quality then these.

I am not one to typically leave a review, but I am very disappointed in this product. I can probably count on one hand the number of reviews I have left on purchases that I have made. I bought this cover for my son's brand new mattress. He still has an overnight accident occasionally and I wanted to protect the mattress. The cover ripped while I was putting it on. It was not a tiny puncture hole either. It was a long rip that only got bigger each time I moved the cover even a little. I decided to make do until I could get a better cover, so I put the rip on the bottom of the mattress. As I zipped the cover up, the zipper broke. I guess this is what I get for spending only $8 on a cover.

I just need this to keep the mattress protected for my little ones who are transitioning out of diapers. This has been perfect for us. The price is right, and the mattress is protected. My child's bed is also his favorite play area, so eventually there was a tear in the plastic in a heavy-traffic area. :) I just covered it with duct tape and we've been good for a while.

The only reason I purchased this was so my mattress wouldn't get dirty during a move. For that it did the job. The mattress was delivered to my new home clean. The only complaint I have about the product is the overwhelming plastic smell. It actually gave me an asthema attack. I closed the door on the room where it was and left the window open, and by the next day much of the smell had dissipated. Don't know how long the product would last because this was the first thing I removed when setting up my bed. It is now outside covering up my bbq grill. LOL.

This is made very cheap! And it tears very easily if you are not careful. And it also makes the crinkly noise everytime you move around.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I ordered this from site to store. When I picked it up, it looked like they had just given me a used one. The package was open/ seal torn, dirty. When I took the product out of the bag, the zipper part was broken. Hence useless. I exchanged it at the store for a clean sealed package and the zipper worked just fine. I would recommend the product. I wouldn't recommend using site to store. I don't trust that service anymore.

Customer review by PrefessionalChef

Cheaply made and a very thin gauge of vinyl but it does the job at a good price. Mine fit my 12 inch mattress perfectly. It will fit up to a 12 inch mattress, not 13. The zipper on mine was disconnected on one side so I had to cut the track on the unattached side to feed it back through. After that it zipped right up no problem. We bought it to protect the mattress from dog damage/smell and it should do the trick.

I am in need of mattress covers that will keep bed bugs away. I don't have a lot of money so I need to find a good product at a cheap price. I need covers for a queen sized mattress and box spring and a twin sized mattress. Please help me!!!!

  • A. Yes it will as long as there are no bedbugs on the mattress. Being in the pest control business we recommend everyone put these on there new mattresses as well as getting zip up pillow protectors as well.

  • A. Yes but bed bugs are not just a bed problem they get in carpets closets clothes ,crevices in walls , vacuum thoroughly wash all clothes in hot water and caulk all gaps cracks everywhere especially along flooring and baseboard moulding purchase bug spray that contains pyrethrum it has a instant kill and a lasting residual kill and is not terribly harmful to people spray along baseboards and anywhere you think the bugs are crawling . Also bed bugs are usually carried by birds and the birds nest somewhere in attic or house and the bugs move from them to you if u live in a apartment seal it up cuz they may be coming from your neighbors , ie door sweeps seals ,etc .

  • A. These are thin, cheap and tend to tear, especially when you're trying to put it on. (Hint: don't use the zipper for leverage in pulling it on!) Having said that, if it is all you can afford right now; buy it and some duct tape and slowly, carefully slide it on to the mattress and duct tape the whole length of the zipper and any areas that look like they could tear easily, e.g. the seams and corners. It'll be better than doing nothing. (ps in order to get it on without it tearing, you'll definitely need two people!) For a more permanent solution (albeit more expensive!) visit domyownpestcontrol.
