Lehua Kyllikki. Mattress. April 05th , 2017.
According to The International Sleep Products Association, 10.8 years is the average life of a mattress and box spring. There are 312 million people in the U.S. today. Together, these numbers mean that around 48 million mattresses and/or box springs are sent to landfills every year. These estimates do not include units from hotels or dormitories, which are replaced more frequently.
Mattresses made of a cotton/foam mix will allow the mattress to breathe, while the foam helps it to keep its shape. Support, comfort and durability depend on how the materials are layered, the quality of foam and cotton used, and the thickness.
air mattresses for small tents are also available on the market today. Also, if more than one person is camping and sleeping in one tent, get a mattress . Spring air queen mattress may be considered, or even bigger California king air mattress may be considered as well.
There are some disadvantages to memory toppers. They are usually made of quite synthetic materials although there are more natural ones appearing. These toppers usually have quite a bit of a smell to them and you'll need to air a new one for about a day before you can put it onto your bed. Thankfully it also takes about a day for the thing to actually unravel itself from the packaging that it comes in so it's all okay! Memory foam regardless of the density rating is a dense material. This can lead to toppers being quite difficult to breathe and circulate air. They can mean that a lot of heat that is generated by your body is trapped. Not something that most people like. Most toppers have 'open cell' designs leading to better breathability however you will notice a difference compared to a straight mattress. You can always put another topper on the top such as one made of fibre fill to remove those disadvantages. Some memory foam toppers even come with fiber fill toppings for those people that want that.
