Mattress Advice

How do I choose a mattress?

It is essential to choose a good mattress.

That’s why we’ve created a complete guide to help you with this!

We share information about degrees of firmness, sleeping positions, budgets, and more.

How does online mattress shopping work?

We’re all used to online shopping - but online mattress shopping?

There’s no need to worry.

The process is quite simple, and we guide you through all the need-to-knows.

The critical thing to remember is that most mattress brands that sell online offer a test period, giving you the chance to try out the mattress and, if you don’t like it, you can return it for a full refund.

This makes online mattress shopping completely risk-free!

Which level of firmness is ideal?

Mattresses come in various degrees of firmness, ranging from very soft to very firm.

Firmness can be challenging to determine when purchasing mattresses online.

Thus, we have formulated a guide for you with our very own Sleep Hero firmness scale, which we use in our mattress reviews [1].

This will help you decide which mattress is right for you.

How do you clean a foam mattress?

Accidents happen, but there’s no need to worry.

Our guide will help you identify the very best ways to clean your mattress.

We'll also give you a few nifty tips on how to keep your mattress clean and hygienic more generally.

What do you do with your old mattress?

You’ve just ordered a new mattress.

Now what? What happens to the mattress you already have?

There are several options to choose from:

  • You can discard your mattress as bulky waste.
  • You can recycle your mattress.
  • You can donate your mattress.
  • You can re-sell your mattress.

We go through some tips and tricks in our old mattress guide.
