Waterproof Mattress Protectors

A glass of spilled water or a toddler’s accident can easily seep into your mattress, causing damage and leading to potential hygiene issues.

Moreover, waterproof mattress protectors don’t just protect against spills, they also guard against allergens like dust mites and bed bugs. So, whether it’s the Brolly Sheets protector or the Hippychick Protector, these protectors ensure that you sleep on a clean and hygienic surface every night.

Pillow Protectors for Complete Bedding Protection

Your pillows are just as important as your mattress when it comes to ensuring a good night’s sleep. Pillow protectors:

  • Act as a shield, protecting your pillows from sweat, drool, and oils

  • Extend the lifespan of your pillows

  • Are made with a fabric or plastic material that is impermeable to liquids

  • Are often designed with a zipper closure to fully encase the pillow for complete protection

Pillow protectors, akin to their mattress counterparts, also offer a variety of options. Whether you prefer the luxury of Brolly Sheet quilted or the practicality of Hippychick, there are numerous options available to cater to your needs. With a pillow protector, you can rest easy knowing your pillow will remain fresh and clean for a longer time.

Easy Maintenance: Wash and Wear with Ease

One of the best things about bed protectors is their easy maintenance. With most protectors being machine washable and quick to dry, you can keep your bedding fresh and clean without any hassle.

Even waterproof mattress protectors can be safely dried in a drying machine, just remember to use a cool setting to prevent any damage to the waterproofing material. As for pillow protectors, they are also designed for machine wash,

Brolly Sheets: The Worry-Free Solution for Bed Wetting

Bedwetting can be a challenging issue, especially for young children and their parents. But with Brolly Sheets, you can turn this challenge into a worry-free experience. Brolly Sheets are specially designed bed pads that can absorb up to 2 litres of liquid, offering substantial protection for individuals dealing with bedwetting.

Made with a top layer of 100% cotton that is gentle to the skin and a quiet polyester backed polyurethane for the waterproof backing, Brolly Sheets ensure both comfort and effective moisture protection.

They are available in different sizes to fit various bed dimensions and feature tuck-in wings that help secure the protector over the fitted sheet, ensuring both effectiveness and discretion.

Comfort Wings: The Extra Assurance of Fit and Stability

While comfort and fit are key aspects of a bed protector, the Brolly Sheets elevate this with the addition of comfort wings. These additional flaps or extensions on the sides of the protector provide:

  • Maximum coverage

  • Secure fit

  • Superior protection

  • Absorbent capacity

This offers an extra layer of added comfort and peace of mind.

These wings securely tuck under the mattress, providing extra assurance of fit and stability. They ensure the protector stays in place, offering comfort and confidence to the user. With their impressive design and excellent absorbent capacity, comfort wings in bed protectors truly enhance the sleeping experience.

Lizzy's Brolly Sheet Endorsement

Lizzy, a satisfied customer and Nappy Lady ambassador , can vouch for their effectiveness and ease of use. She found these sheets to be a convenient and easy-to-use solution for managing bedwetting and appreciated their discreetness.

“These could not have come at a better time for us. Our eldest turns three this week, and has been day dry for about a year. He goes through spells of night dry but is not reliable yet. Brolly Sheets hold up to 2 litres of liquid. Not even a morning flood can exceed that!

The sheet fits really easily over the top of the normal fitted sheet of the bed. It feels just like a sheet, so is lovely to sleep against and has long tabs to allow a really secure fit. Our son sleeps in a double bed, but we went for the king size sheet so we have flexibility of using it on our bed, his current bed and future single beds.

Brolly Sheets are bringing some reduced anxiety into our lives! They will protect against nappy leaks, removing the night nappy, illness. All scenarios are no longer a full bed change in the middle of the night: just whip the Brolly Sheet off! It’s also a really convenient way to self cater with no anxiety- bring along the Brolly Sheet to have confidence that you won’t end up with a surcharge for additional cleaning.

We bought two sheets so that we’ve got a spare for when one is in the wash. Fingers crossed we won’t need to test their capacity, but I’ll be sleeping easier knowing that we’re covered if the worst happens!”

Stock Up: How Many Protectors Do You Need?

The answer depends on factors such as the frequency the bed is used, the frequency of accidents and how many beds you need to protect. If little one moves rooms in the night maybe joining you from their own room you will want to protect both beds.

As a rule of thumb I'd recommend having at least two protectors per bed is advisable to allow for washing and drying. For bedwetting if you have regular accidents and limited drying facilities you may prefer to have 3 or 4 per bed.


In conclusion, bed protectors play an important role in ensuring a good night’s sleep by providing a clean, hygienic, and comfortable sleep environment.
