Not because someone here is leaky ...

Our old ones are well and truly worn through and they don't make those ones anymore so it's time for new ones. I've had a look around and there are so many options. We don't use electric blankets so these don't need to be accommodated. I'd love to hear what has worked well.
Thanks :)

I shall be interested to see what people say, as I replaced ours this year, with a truly horrible one from Briscos. It's meant to be fitted, but it's huge with nylon slippery sides. I loathe it. It bunches and slides, and was fairly expensive. Bloody thing.

I have a couple of Protect.A.Bed covers. The first has a quilted cover, the second, cheaper one is terry toweling. The Queen size one to fit the mattress doesn't cover down the sides and if it shifts slightly, the edge and sides of the mattress are then uncovered. I bought a King the second time, so it covers the sides of the mattress as well - it's a rounded sort of top to sides. It has that horrid nylon stuff, but doesn't cause us too much trouble - but we have a lovely squishy sort of latex mattress, so maybe we don't move around too much, or just don't notice if the cover moves a bit.

I've got a slightly padded one about 2 years old, does the job, washes and dries easily BUT if I didn't have an electric blanket I would get a wool underlay as they keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Or maybe just use it in the winter and a cotton one in summer. (I'm sure you can use them with elec. blankets)
Briscoes when they have sales (every fortnight or so) is a good place for deals.
To be honest I don't wash my mattress protector more than twice a year as it doesn't seem to need it, mind you if I start having hot flushes...............

I'd second the wool underlay, but a cheap substitute is a summer weight duvet inner. Comfortable to sleep on, you only need to buy the elastic to do the corners with. They have the advantage of being easy to wash and when they wear out, they make good dog/cat blankets!

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S
