How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Simba mattress protector composition
The Simba mattress protector is a luxuriously soft extra layer of protection designed to be wrapped over your mattress to safeguard it against dirt and bacteria.
It is made of pure, breathable 200-thread-count cotton with a 200 gm fill and is infused with hypoallergenic anti-microbial Bi-Ome technology that prevents odours and protects against micro-organisms.
- Cover and skirt: 100% cotton
- Quilt filling: 97% cotton and 3% other fibres
- Lining: 100% polypropylene
While many mattress protectors also feature a thin waterproof film, the Simba mattress protector is not waterproof, and the polypropylene layer only acts as a barrier to moisture.
This means that if you’re prone to night sweats, a hot sleeper, or enjoy your morning coffee in bed, the Simba protector will not fully safeguard your mattress against any moisture, spills, or stains. 😅

How to wash the Simba mattress protector
Mattress protectors don’t need to be washed as often as your bedding, but we’d still recommend washing them once a quarter or so.
A machine-wash at a high temperature will kill any bed bugs, dust mites, or other nasties that may have found their way into your bed.
Simply pop the Simba mattress protector into your washing machine with similar colours on a normal 40℃ cotton cycle and hang it up to dry.
Do not use biological and/or enzyme-containing detergents for your protector.
You can also tumble-dry the protector on a low-heat setting. ♨️
What does the Simba mattress protector cost?
As a premium product, the Simba mattress protector does not come cheap, and it’s significantly more expensive than other protectors we’ve tried. 💷
Of course, most protectors don’t have a luxurious quilted feel, but many are fully waterproof, which is definitely a huge downside to the Simba mattress protector.
