Paula writes,

Are your bedbug mattress covers made of anything other than terrycloth?

What keeps the bedbugs in & from biting through the terrycloth? Is there anything built in to allow cover to breathe & keep you from sweating if plastic is involved in make up of covers?


There are two layers to the mattress cover top. The top layer, the one that actually comes into contact with people resting on it is 100% cotton terry cloth. Just beneath that layer is a very unique material called "Miracle Membrane". The membrane is stretchy and actually feels a bit like skin. No plastic is involved at all. This miracle membrane is waterproof and bedbug bite proof and is a trade secret.
