You don’t usually think of an online mattress retailer as an essential business. Since they don’t have physical locations that can be shut down or that people may not feel comfortable visiting a mattress store during the coronavirus.
Well, the issue is more on the production side. Today Nolah announced that, “today, we are happy to announce that all our manufacturing partners and warehouses have been deemed essential businesses that are not at risk of being shut down during lockdowns!”
That means they can continue to ship and supply as usual and without disruptions. Considering many mattress companies are made in China or partly made in China or another country, it may be slower to get mattresses made right now.
Made in the USA
But Nolah is 100% made in the USA. In Elkhart, Indiana to be exact. Here’s a screenshot of a conversation I had with them:
Nolah Mattress Sale
In addition to being open and shipping, Nolah is offer historically low prices right now.
Get $458 off your Nolah mattress!
It’s up to $300 off mattresses + 2x FREE AirFiber™ pillows ($158 value for free) 😄
We think Nolah is an excellent choice and one of the most underrated mattresses on the market They offer a great value on a quality mattress.
Compare Nolah Mattresses
Nolah has two models – a 10″ and a 12″. If you want a soft or a firm mattress, get the 12″ – it’s flippable so you can choose which side of the mattress to sleep on (top or bottom). It has an impressive lifetime warranty too. And an organic cotton cover. Each has a 120 night trial, which is a little above standard for the industry.
If you or someone in your household has the flu or other sickness, it’s important to clean and disinfect their mattress after they recover. However, doing so can be difficult, if not impossible.
Your mattress can be a breeding ground for bacteria. In addition, it harbors dust mites, dead skin, dirt, hair, spilled food or liquids and more.
The Washabelle mattress can be disassembled in layers and put in the washing machine to clean and disinfect it.
Available in adult, children’s sizes (twin) which is especially helpful if bedwetting is an issue, and a pet bed.
There may not be another mattress with so much charm and well, cuteness. However, beyond its adorably good looks, the Washabelle mattress has a practical application—it’s easy to clean. The cover is washable. Unzip the bed and remove each layer. Then throw it into the washing machine (and next, the dryer). The base foam layer is the only layer that can’t be washed. However, it’s protected by the zip out breathable waterproof layer that’s on top of it.
Washabelle has two lightweight washable foam layers that have their own cover and a breathable waterproof zip out liner. There’s a foam base inside the mattress cover and it zips up with a durable brass zipper. The washable foam, liner and cover can be tossed right into the washer and dryer.

Washable Mattress that’s Ideal for Bed Wetters and Pets
So if you have a bedwetter, don’t like using a mattress protector, or are a bit of a clean freak like me – this is your mattress. Pets can be the worst too, because you can’t escape the hair that gets into the bed. And allergies are a real concern. Good thing Washabelle has a pet bed!
There’s no way you can cram your current mattress into a washing machine and they don’t come apart. If you do put the memory foam into the wash, it would be like a big sponge and probably never dry out, while developing a mold problem.
So don’t just wash the sheets (you are washing them – right?!), wash your bed!

Need an old mattress, box springs, bed frame or adjustable bed hauled away? When you get a new mattress, the biggest question most people ask is, what to do with the old one. Most of the time it’s a lot of work to get rid of your old mattress.
First, you’ve got get it out of the house. And mattresses are usually heavy, especially a king size. It can be over 100 lbs. Then you have to fit your mattress and box springs into your vehicle (you may need a truck for that). Last, you need to take it to the nearest dump and pay the fee.
I’ve learned the hard way that the dump isn’t a place I want to go to again. Ours makes you get out of the vehicle and dump out your mattress onto the piles of garbage all by yourself. So there’s more lifting but it’s slippery and harder to move. Plus, it’s the grossest, dirtiest smelliest place to be. They should’ve told us to wear waders! I had to remove my shoes to get back in the car.
I recommend using a junk removal service like LoadUp, to save yourself the hassle and trauma of having to do it yourself. LoadUp is available in over 170 cities nationwide, with guaranteed up front pricing that’s 20% cheaper than most competitors and without any need for a sales person to visit first to haggle over annoying estimates.

So if you’re busy or don’t want to have to be home for the pick up, you can schedule online and put your items on your curb. No waiting around and everything is out of your house.

Mattresses and beds are brutal on your back!
So save yourself the work and let the pros handle mattress removal for you!!
Layla Sleep just came out with a hybrid – the Layla Hybrid Mattress. The new mattress stays true to brand with these two features – copper infused memory foam and that it has flippable firmness™. One side is soft (4/10) and the other is firm (7/10). Contrast that with a mattress like Idle that is flippable but you can order it with one half of the mattress medium and one half of the mattress firm.
Individually wrapped coils and memory foam make it a hybrid. There are also handles to help you with rotating and flipping the bed. And a zip off cover for easy cleaning.
We appreciate how transparent Layla is in the construction of this mattress – they tell you the density of the foam. How the mattress is constructed gives you a clue to how it will feel. Notice that the soft side has a lot more cushioning than the firm side. Compare that there’s 4.5 inches of memory foam on the soft side and 2.5 inches of memory foam on the firm side.

Online mattress brands try to appeal to the average sleeper but that often leaves out those who want a soft or firm bed. They’re trying to streamline choices to keep prices down but you’ll find most are at about a 6/10 on the firmness scale.
1. Amerisleep AS5
Softness rating 3/10
Consumer Reports rating: 65/100
Material: All foam or hybrid available
Price for a queen: $1899
Customer Review: I love my Amerisleep mattresses and wouldn’t buy anything else after having these. They are soft yet firm and don’t wear even after years, and sometimes I am in the bed for days or weeks at a time due to illness. Never made an impression on the bed from sitting in it for years, amazing. If you have trouble sleeping because of Fibromyalgia this is the bed for you! The AS3 is a little softer and works better for me.
Softness rating 3/10
Depth: 13.5″ deep
Consumer Reports rating: 74/100
Price for a queen: $1499
Customer Review: The mattress fabric itself is not like any other mattress fabric I’m aware of. I can’t even explain the softness. But it’s a thick, cooling, luxurious serious quality cozy comfort kind of softness. I went all over town looking at $$$$$ mattresses but still found nothing even close to this. Additionally, I sleep hot. I mean feel like I’m wrapped in plastic and stuffed in an oven with the broiler on high kind of hot. Suffocating hot. And would always wake up with sore hips, shoulders and back. I just thought it was my lot in life. I’m willing to spend decent coin on good mattresses—within reason, but always ended up with long dreadful nights. I actually dreaded going to bed because nights were so bad. This mattress was the game-changer.
Softness rating 3/10
Depth: Choose from 11.5″ or 14.5″ deep
Consumer Reports rating: N/A
Material: Hybrid (foam and coils)
Price for a queen: $1199 (11.5″)
Customer Review: We are very glad we picked the plush soft mattress over the luxury firm. I have joint pain and often have tense muscles and hard mattresses can be tough to get comfortable on. The plush soft is dense and supportive, the edge support really is there! We have had “euro too/soft” mattresses in the past but after trying Saatva, those old mattresses really were just stuffed on top. The mattress didn’t seem as soft as we thought we needed at first but after a few nights, it’s very relaxing to sleep on. Plenty of support while not pushing on tender joints as a side sleeper…we are very glad we bought the plush.
Softness rating 4/10
Depth: 12″ deep
Consumer Reports rating: N/A
Material: All foam
Price for a queen: $1495
Customer Review: We received our Puffy over a week ago. I have to say That it’s the most comfortable mattress that I ever slept on! My husband and I have been married for over 5 years , and we have already been through 2 mattresses. The one was the I Comfort that we paid $3400 for. That mattress felt awesome at first, then in two months it started getting dips in it from our bodies. That made our backs hurt. We gave it away. Then we decided to go with a firm Beauty Rest, It felt okay, but 3 years later our backs were aching every morning! I searched for the the top 10 mattresses of 2020 and Puffy was the number one. I told my husband about it and he was very skeptical about ordering a mattress over the internet. I told him about the 101 day trial period, so he agreed to it. I have to say that we absolutely love our Puffy and and the king size pillow that came with it. We both wake up feeling so refreshed! Thank you Puffy for giving us the best night’s sleep ever!
Softness rating 4/10
Consumer Reports rating: N/A for soft/plush
Price for a queen: $949
Customer Review: I have had this mattress for approximately two months and I absolutely love it. Honestly it didn’t even feel like I had to break it in. I have had a chronic back pain for 4 years now and this bed makes my back feel better and I feel like my pain might go away soon because of the bed. Perfect combo of (support – intersprings and comfort – memory foam). My brother has an expensive interspring mattress and was blown away about how comfy this bed is. The price is great and it is made in the US. Thank you Brooklyn Bedding for making an awesome bed that has helped me improve my health.
The soft model is very, very soft and plush, and perfect for strict side sleepers. It supported my back very well and provided pressure relief for my hips and shoulders. The soft model is dollar-for-dollar, I think, one of the best mattresses you can buy.”
In previous articles we highlighted mattresses that have a full year trial. There are at least 4. In this post you’ll learn about a mattress with an even longer sleep trial — 18 months. Yes, you get an entire year and a half to decide what you think. The name of the mattress? Idle Sleep! Note that we may earn a commission when you shop through our links.
Idle Sleep Mattresses Have an 18 Month Sleep Trial!
Idle Sleep mattress is a higher end luxury mattress that comes in 4 models, including hybrids and a latex model.
Each Idle mattress is 14 inches deep and several are flippable which means you can sleep on either side and choose the firmness you want.
Comes with a full 18 month sleep trial.
Has a lifetime warranty.
You can finance your mattress, so you can get your mattress now for a low monthly payment. Idle uses Affirm financing which starts at 0% interest for 6 or 12 months.
Choose from all of the standard sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and California king. In addition, they’re one of a few companies that offers a split king which is perfect for couples who can’t agree – you can have one side softer and one more firm so you’re both happy!
There’s an optional white glove delivery for an additional $149. They’ll set up your bed for you and take away your old mattress. Since these are heavy beds, it’s probably a good idea unless you have some help. For $29 more they’ll remove a second piece of furniture, such as a box spring. However, this option does add 1-2 weeks onto delivery.
If you can’t wait or just need a mattress removed without set up, we highly recommend this mattress removal service for about $83 for a queen (instant quotes available). That way you won’t slow down your delivery waiting to coordinate the delivery and pick up. You can usually book online for next day pick up.
Lifetime ownership warranty! Idle is one of the few mattresses that offers this generous warranty. They guarantee IDLE for as long as you own the mattress.
Idle Mattress Coupon
When you purchase through our link you will get 30% OFF + Two FREE Pillows when you buy an Idle mattress.
You buy a mattress online and it comes with a return window, usually called the sleep trial. Your sleep trial can be anywhere from 30 days to a year or even an 18 month sleep trial. During that time you can return your mattress and get a refund for just about any reason. Often they’ll try to save the sale by offering a mattress topper or other remedy to see if you like the mattress more. Some require a certain number of nights before you can return a bed, as it can take a month or two to adjust to the feel of a different mattress than you’re used to.
But just what you need to do to get your mattress returned so you can get your refund, depends on the mattress company and their policy. In most cases you need to show proof (a receipt) that the mattress was picked up or dropped off by an approved partner.
Retuning your mattress can be a pain but it doesn’t have to be. Two companies that are known for making returns easy are Tuft & Needle and Puffy.

What Happens to Mattress Returns?
If your mattress isn’t the dream you hoped it would be, your journey to return it and get a refund has just begun. But, what do they do with returned mattresses? They can’t be recompressed and shipped back. Here’s what happens to the mattresses when a customer invokes the 100-day guarantee (or however many days you have), and sends it back.
Donate your Mattress to a Charity.
This is the best option if you want to do some good with your mattress return. However, your mattress should be in like new condition, as most charities don’t have large facilities or the ability to clean them thoroughly. Some mattress companies work directly with a charity and others leave it up to you to find one. Depending on where you live this might be challenging. Charities may also have limited staff and ability to get your mattress fast. As there is considerable effort and cost to get, transport, store and protect each mattress, they might resell your mattress to help recoup costs.
Get it Picked up by a Junk Removal Company.
The sooner you return your mattress, the faster you get your refund. So what if you need your bed picked up asap and you don’t have a way to drop it off? Sometimes you just need it gone fast. Junk removal companies like Load Up will come and get it for you. LoadUp is a nationwide full-service junk removal and hauling company specializing in guaranteed upfront pricing online and dedicated customer support.
Where to Dispose of Mattress Near Me
Best of all you can get a price check and availability online so you can find someone near by to come get your mattress. Load Up is 20% cheaper than other junk companies, guaranteed. A lot of mattress companies use them. They can even take away your old bed.
If you’re lucky enough to live near a mattress recycling center, you can take your mattress there. There’s usually a fee to do drop off or more if they come and pick it up (assuming they offer that service). Unfortunately, in a lot of states there aren’t that many options and it may be too far or cumbersome to recycle your mattress (you may spend more energy to get it there than it saves).
Company Lets you Find Someone to Give Your Bed to.
Some mattress companies let you find a person to donate your mattress to. You can put an ad on Craigslist, on Classifieds sites or otherwise located someone in need. This is more work on your part but it could also mean a free mattress to someone else. You do have to do the work to find and get the mattress to the next person though. Mattresses are so personal that there’s no one right one for everyone. And it may take some trial and error to get the right one for you.
A For Profit Company Picks Up Your Mattress.
Whether you choose to donate, recycle, or have a junk removal business get your mattress, you’ll get a receipt. Or you otherwise have to prove that you followed the instructions. Then the normal wait time is 30 days to get your refund processed. The amount of work it takes to complete your return varies widely, depending on the mattress company you bought your mattress from. Be sure to look at the policy before you buy. One of the advantages to buying a mattress online is that you can actually sleep on the bed for weeks to make sure it’s the right fit for you. There are usually no fees or expenses involved (the company incurs the cost of the return).
Your turn. We’d love to know what your experience was like when you returned a mattress. Please let us know in the comments.
Have you returned a mattress? What brand was it? What did the mattress company ask you to do to get your refund? How satisfied were you with the process?

Toddler Side of the Avocado Green Toddler Mattress
DreamCloud mattress is unique in the top has tufting that forms small clouds or squares. However, that recently changed.
The new version of DreamCloud doesn’t have tufting. Instead it’s a quilted euro top style. It looks a lot like the Nectar cover, but it has the same color and pattern as before. While it looks more formal and elegant, some people didn’t like the tufting design because their arms or legs went to the seams of the pillow top.
The left side is before – you can see how high the pillows are. The right side shows the more quilted, flatter design. The color is the same (the photos are taken in different light).
The next change is in the firmness. Overall, Dreamcloud was more firm than the name suggests. Instead of being on the firmer side of medium, you’ll now sink in more. This change puts Dreamcloud in the medium range.
You can read more about the exact changes with the construction below. But first, here are 9 quick facts about DreamCloud…as usual there are affiliate links in this post and we may earn a commission if you shop through our links.

Less layers – going from an 8 layer bed to 6 layers.
No longer offer a twin size (only a twin xl).
No more tufting, instead the cover will be quilted but the Euro top is still 1.5″ thick.
Took cashmere out of the cover.
No longer has latex.
The only memory foam is on the third layer – 1.5″.
365-Night Trial is now a risk free trial that officially begins 30 days after the date of the delivery (rather than immediately). Studies show that it takes 30-60 days to adjust to a new mattress.

As always, to avoid voiding your warranty do not cause physical damage to your mattress. Tears, burns, stains, cuts or liquid damages will void your warranty so be sure to get a mattress protector. You buy cases for your phone, as a rule if it costs more than you could easily pay to replace it, it’s
