REVIEW: REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector

Over the years I have become familiar with the company Protect-A-Bed.  I know they offer consumers a complete line of protective bedding products because every mattress needs protection!  Protect-A-Bed is a worldwide leader in mattress protection innovation. Protect-A-Bed® products help create a dry, hygienic, bed bug free and anti-allergy sleep zone while protecting the mattress warranty.   But what I was not aware of until recently was that they offer many very unique products that not only protect your mattress, but that can also offer mental and physical benefits as well!  If you are like me, and live an active, athletic, healthy lifestyle, then you will want to read on.  The Protect-A-Bed new line REM, which stands for REST, ENERGIZE and MOTIVATE is what has caught my attention and made me really take keen notice about this outstanding company and the fascinating products that they offer.  Let me briefly introduce Protect-A-Bed to you and then share with you about the REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector I received.

Protect-A-Bed’s mattress protector was originally developed and introduced in South Africa in 1980.

The developers of the original Snugfit product set out to make a product that would provide a healthy, hygienic and comfortable sleeping environment. After a long and thorough research and development effort, the Protect-A-Bed Premium product was created in its current form.

Until the introduction of mattress protectors by Protect-A-Bed in 2000, the United States market was only familiar with mattress pads. Mattress pads were originally conceptualized when mattresses became thinner and less padded during the depression years. The quilted mattress pad was a solution adding comfort, some protection and renewed life to a mattress. However, modern mattresses have plush, padded layers built into the mattress eliminating the need for additional padding. The only necessary top of bed product is a protector that will protect the mattress from contaminants, and the sleeper from allergens – a Protect-A-Bed product.

A mattress represents a considerable financial investment worthy of protection against accidents, allergens and early deterioration. The success of the Protect-A-Bed mattress protectors with consumers is based on the fact that a mattress is in close personal use daily and demands hygienic protection. As awareness of sleep environment hygiene grows, more and more consumers have become convinced of the importance of protecting mattresses and pillows against liquids, dust mites and other invasive allergens – something that a mattress pad cannot do. 

Protect-A-Bed offers a premium line of bedding and health protection products for pillows, mattresses and box springs. Some of the product features include: 

  • The only bedding protection products with Miracle Membrane Barrier that provides a waterproof, air vapor porous barrier between the user and the mattress/pillow.
  • High comfort fabrics such as: 

 ○ Smooth Polyester
 ○ Cotton Terry
 ○ Smooth Cotton
 ○ Plush Velour
 ○ New Age Tencel Fabric 

 • Cotton toweling on certain products
 • 100% waterproof  and super absorbent: protects the mattress from all liquid stains and spills
 • Effective at preventing allergens and dust mites from breeding in the pillow and mattress (a major cause of asthma, eczema and rhinitis)
 • Quiet and cool to sleep on
 • Easy to install, use and maintain
 • Can be machine washed at warm temperature and tumble dried on medium settings
 • Easy stretch fabric
 • Fits pillow top mattresses
 • Fire retardant compliant
 • Tested for harmful substances 

Now that you have learned a little about Protect-A-Bed, let move on with my review.

Protect-A-Bed REM Line is a new sleep recovery system designed to give you the ultimate REST, ENERGIZE and MOTIVATE experience by providing you with the best night sleep possible.  Intriguing right?!  Prior to my receiving the sensational REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector I was only protecting our mattresses with a standard cotton mattress pad.  So when I received the REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector I was super excited and optimistic for all the really compelling features I had learned about it.  Before I delve into my thoughts on this exceptional product, here are the details on it:

I am getting a more restful night's sleep!  I do feel more energized and that is giving me a sense of feeling more motivated every morning!  And what, from a mattress protector?!  Hmmmm, I think so!

I knew from the very moment I opened the REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector box that I was going to be amazed and in love with this product.  I may not be a professional athlete or a gold medal champion, but I enjoy participating in a variety of sports and physical exercise activities and at the end of the day I am often mentally and physically exhausted and in need of a blissful night's sleep.  Sleep is incredibly important to us all and we all know we cannot function to our full capacity without it.  Sleep is a necessity in order for us to live each day to its fullest and give our mind's and body the complete rest it needs to refuel us for the next day.  So without hesitation I highly recommend the REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector to help aid you in achieving a sleep environment that is going to create the superior sanctuary you need for this.

The fabric of the REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector is super soft and feels very luxurious.  It does feel softer than cotton.  I feel a great sense of relief in knowing that not only am I protecting my mattress, which was a expensive investment, but I am protecting myself from bacteria growth and bugs, yuck!  My skin is sensitive, more sensitive than most people, so I also feel relief in knowing that the fabric is healthier for my skin than a traditional cotton mattress protector.

It gives me peace of mind knowing that in the warm summer months that are just around the corner, this innovative mattress protector is going to wick away moisture and be a naturally thermo-regulating material year-round!  I have washed the REM-Fit Motivate Plush Mattress Protector a few times so I am able to comment on the ultra fine quality of the fabric.  I washed it in warm water with a cold water rinse and put it in the dryer on low heat.  It came out beautiful and I was very pleased with the results.  I know that this mattress protector is going to stand the test of time and last us for years to come.  It is an ideal investment for those who want to live a healthy and restful lifestyle!

This concludes my review.
