More specifically, our mattress is tested to be free from ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, heavy metals, formaldehyde, phthalates, and low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million). Instead, unzip and remove the cover and spot clean with a mild detergent – gently dabbing the cover rather than rubbing it. Make sure the cleaned area is 100% dry before replacing the cover or placing sheets and blankets back on the mattress.
There isn’t any internal structure that reinforces the edges of the mattress so if you like to sit on the edge of your bed, sitting further back towards the center of the mattress and keeping it lower to the ground will help. Surprisingly, it doesn’t cost a ton of money to craft a comfortable mattress with quality ingredients. Position your mattress on top of your bed frame and find the ends of the plastic wrap stuck to the side of the roll. As soon as you fully remove the mattress from the plastic, it will expand to its correct size.
Keep in mind that some of our mattresses are compressed to smaller than their expected size in order to make shipping easier. It’s important to note that all latex foams used in mattresses are not 100% natural when others claim them to be—at most they are about 95% natural due to the curing package required to set the material. You can try the mattress for 100 nights, and if you don’t like it for any reason, return it for a full refund. Their purpose is to support the mattress and their function is analogous to that of a box spring.
You can definitely use an existing box spring if you like the height it provides, or if your frame doesn’t have enough support for the weight of the mattress. Platform Bed Frame – Platform bed frames come in a variety of styles, and they either feature horizontal slats (think planks, usually wooden) or a solid platform for the mattress to rest on. Slatted Bed Frame – A slatted bed frame is another way of saying platform frame and gets its name from the characteristic horizontal slats that support the mattress.
Metal Bed Frame – Sometimes called a Hollywood bed frame, the metal frame is a traditional bed frame that supports a box spring + mattress. Solid Foundation – A solid foundation provides the support of a platform frame or slats, though it looks very much like a box spring and is used the same way: metal frame + solid foundation + mattress. We started Tuft & Needle because of our own experiences with mattress gimmicks. In the event of a return, they’ll arrange a pickup of the mattress or help with return shipping.
