chilipad weighted blanket

Chilipad’s New Weighted Blanket Has Heat and Cooling Tech

By | Sleep Industry News, Weighted Blanket | No Comments

chili logoThere’s no doubt that weighted blankets are trendy. They Time magazine called one brand of weighted blanket (the Gravity blanket), “One of Time‘s best inventions of 2018.” And we’re sure there are differences between weighted blankets, besides just the weight, but also that they’re subtle differences. Top mattress brands such as Purple, Nectar, Layla, Helix, and Casper all have weighted blankets now.

The goal: more relaxed and deeper sleep. However, we also see potential health benefits for people who suffer from muscle aches and uses a heating pad to treat pain. Think: cramps, osteoporosis, lower back pain or injuries. Best of all, with the weight. it’s more likely to stay in place. However, a lot of people want the soothing qualities of a weighted blanket but they get uncomfortably hot.

This week chiliPAD announced their own weighted blanket.

chiliBLANKET temperature controlled weighted blanket

Chilipad has something truly unique in weighted blankets. It’s called the ChiliBlanket. Wait, make that ChiliBLANKET. They put their heated and cooled water technology inside a weighted blanket. What does that mean? You get the stress and anxiety relief without the heat (or with it). Hot sleepers of the world rejoice! You can now get the benefits of a weighted blanket without the sweaty, heavy heat of one!

There are many cooling weighted blankets but that usually just means they’re made with a lightweight, cooler fabric. None that we’ve seen actually change the temperature of the blanket though. chiliBLANKET has tubing that connects to the control unit. You can set the temperature and heated or cooled water will coarse through the tubes and subtly warm or it cool down. It has a remote for easier control.

Temperature control means you can sleep deeper because you’re not too hot or cold. Or if you live in Arizona or Florida you can use your heated blanket year round!

You get the anxiety and stress relief from the feeling of calm that a heavier, substantial blanket provides. You can get the weight without the temperature. While the chiliPAD or Ooler go underneath you, the chiliBLANKET goes over you. And you can use it without the plug (features) too – as a regular weighted blanket.

chiliBLANKET comes stand alone or with the chiliPAD cube

chiliBLANKET has two options: it works with your existing chiliPAD or Ooler system or just the chiliPAD box. Here are some of the benefits, according to their website:

  • Hydro-powered, temperature-controlled weighted blanket leads to more restful, restorative sleep
  • Water circulates through a system of tubes inside the blanket for a luxurious sleep experience
  • The hydro-powered design also means the chiliBLANKET is EMF-free
  • The temperature can be adjusted to between 55° and 115°F (13–46°C) to promote deep sleep
  • Glass beads fill the blanket, which provides even weight distribution
  • Removable and machine-washable outer cover
  • Quality fabric offers strength and durability through repeated use and washing

Comes in one color.

chiliBLANKET cost

You will pay for the tech but if it means your health or sleep, it’s worth it for a lot of people. Available stand alone or with the chiliPAD cube – this is what you should buy if you already have a chiliPAD or Ooler system. Cost: $299 or $13.80/month.

chiliBLANKET with chiliPAD system

Or the system which contains both chiliBLANKET and chiliPAD control unit. $499 or $23.03/month.

chiliBLANKET with chiliPAD system

Size

Comes in one size: Throw Blanket Size of 79.5in (202cm) long x 45.5in (116cm) wide

Sleep trial and warranty

ChiliBLANKET comes with a 90 day sleep trial and a 2 year warranty. Ships starting January 20, 2020 and so far we can’t find the exact weight (which is ironic).

Idle Mattress: 2-Sided Mattress with a Long 18 Month Sleep Trial and Lifetime Warranty!

By | Mattress | No Comments

Idle Sleep logoIn 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.

What Happens to Returned Mattresses?

By | Mattress | No Comments

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.

There are affiliate links in this article and we may earn a commission when you shop through our links.

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 want more details on what they do with your old mattress…read, What Happens to my Old Mattress? It’s more interesting than you might think.

Get a Price Quote

Take it to a Mattress Recycler.

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?

New Avocado Green Organic Crib Mattress Flips Over to Turn it from a Baby to a Toddler Bed

By | Baby Mattress | No Comments

Avocado green mattress logoAvocado Green Mattress has a new addition to add to their line of nontoxic mattresses and accessories – a baby mattress! And they may be the only online mattress company that has a children’s book. Fitting with their brand, all profits from the book, which has an environmental theme, will be donated to 1% for the Planet.

Thanks for shopping through our links as it helps support our small business.

Avocado Organic Crib Mattress

Like the rest of Avocado’s mattresses, the Avocado organic crib mattress is gorgeous. It’s also created to go from baby to toddler bed. One side is more firm, for infants who need that extra support. Flip it to the other side for a tad softer feel – ideal for toddlers who can move their heads and bodies around more. As with all Avocado mattresses, it’s handmade in Los Angeles.

Avocado Toddler Mattress

Crib Mattress Size

Fits standard cribs and is 6 inches deep and 28 inches across. The bundle of joy is 52 inches long and weighs 36 lbs. Mom and baby are doing great!

What it’s Made of

In addition to 170 cotton-wrapped pocketed innersprings which are encased in unbleached cotton, there’s organic certified wool, organic certified flax pads; organic certified coco-fiber perimeters infused with organic latex for strong edge support; resilient organic certified natural dunlop latex foam; and organic certified cotton ticking. Cotton is GOTS organic certified.

How much is the Avocado Organic Baby Mattress?

The Avocado Organic Baby Mattress costs $1,249 and has an option to finance with Affirm. If you quality you can get the mattress now and get 0% APR and payments as low as $76/month.

Take me to their Website

A Farm to Bedroom Mattress

Avocado has taken the concept of farm to table that’s popular in the food niche and applied it to making mattresses. Most mattress brands don’t make their own products, rather they’re made by a different manufacturer (or several). Avocado mades their own, from farm to bed in their GOTS organic certified factories in Los Angeles. They co-own the factory in India where the GOLS Dunlop latex is processed and control more than 4,000 acres of family-run latex plantations. In addition they ethically raise more than 150,000 native Gaddi sheep on 40,000+ hectares of organic certified pastures in the Himalayas.

No Polyurethane Foams, Glue, Flame Retardant or Chemicals

There are no petroleum-based polyurethane foams, chemical adhesives, vinyl waterproofing, polyurethane, polyethylene or flame retardant chemicals in this Organic Crib Mattress. Instead, they use 100% organic wool as a natural fire retardant and interior needle tufting. Keeping with the theme of no plastic or polyurethane, the baby mattress protector is made of certified organic cotton too. That means more washing and the company recommends you buy 3 so that you can change them out as needed.

If you’re unsure about your purchase at all, you may want to get a waterproof incontinence pad to put under where baby is sleeping.

GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFIED

Babies sleep more than adults, which means that they spend more time near mattresses that can emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and EDCs (Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals). Studies show these emissions are linked to neurodevelopmental issues, childhood obesity, asthma, and other conditions. That’s why our organic crib mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low emissions. It’s been tested in environmental chambers to meet the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants. Few crib mattresses qualify for this gold standard.

100% GOTS Organic Certified Wool

Carbon Neutral Production & Shipping

25 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY

100 DAY SLEEP TRIAL – but the company states that the crib mattress must be sanitary and undamaged to be eligible.

As of this writing Avocado does not sell the crib, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that was the next addition to the Avocado Green mattress family.

Box Spring & Mattress for Very Low Bed

By | Bedding, platform beds | No Comments

Are you looking for a box spring and mattress that is lower to the ground? Today’s beds are made so they don’t require a box spring (they’re difficult to ship if made of metal springs). Really, you just need a flat surface to set your mattress on.

Mattresses and box springs can add a lot of height to a bed. But what if you want a shorter bed? We have options for you!

Some mattress brands sell foundations and frames with their bed in a box options that you may look at but we recommend  Wayfair. Why? They just have so much more selection. Plus you’ve got to love FREE Shipping on thousands of items at Wayfair. In addition, Wayfair makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Sort by height, type of material, size, price and ratings so you don’t waste your time searching for the perfect fit. If you want to buy now and pay later, Wayfair has financing options too.

Search for Thin Mattress, Box Springs and More

Low profile mattresses – under 6 inches deep.

Low profile box springs – typically 2-5 inches off the ground and have metal springs inside.

Low profile foundations – these are box spring replacements that you place your mattress on and they’re firmer than box springs. Some foundations can be folded.

Low profile platform beds – a simple bed frame that doesn’t require box springs – they often have slats and may include a  headboard and/or footboard.

Note that when you shop through our links, we may earn a commission at no cost to you.

Why Buy Low Profile Box Spring and Mattress?

A low profile box spring (or low profile foundation) reduces the height of your box spring (or foundation) and mattress. Standard box springs are 9 inches high. Then add a bed frame that can add another 7 inches. Mattresses themselves can be 15 inches deep or more. That totals over 30 inches off the ground – 2.5 feet.

Additionally, you can choose to skip the box springs altogether and just get a foundation. Then just put your thin box mattress on the foundation, no box springs required.

5 reasons you might choose a lower profile bed:

  1. Difficulty getting out of bed (like you’re disabled, shorter or a child). A thin box spring can make your bed lower and easier to get into.
  2. Bunk beds need enough room between your bed and the ceiling so you don’t hit your head!
  3. You’re a minimalist. A lower profile mattress and foundation that are close to the ground can give a simple, uncluttered aesthetic to a bedroom that’s clean and modern. In Japan, the futon is an example of a low profile bed that lies flat and doesn’t clutter the room.
  4. You move a lot or don’t have a lot of space. Lower profile beds may not be as heavy and some can even fold so you can store them when you don’t need them (like for a guest room).
  5. Budget is a concern. A lower profile box springs or foundation costs less.

Examples of Low Profile Beds

Here are lower profile box springs, beds and mattresses:

Dreamcloud Mattress Softens Up and Changes Mattress Cover

By | Mattress | No Comments

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).

Dreamcloud cover before and after

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.

DreamCloud Mattress 2.0 Changes

Removing latex, changing the cover to eliminate tufting and how the trial period works are notable changes. Photos to be forthcoming.

  • 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.
  • Prices start at $999 for a queen. Financing is available so you have a low monthly payment. You’ll know if you qualify for 0% interest within minutes when you apply through their website. Check current prices here.

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

9 Facts about the DreamCloud Mattress

Here’s a quick look at the DreamCloud bed

  1. The DreamCloud is a hybrid mattress made with memory foam, polyfoam and springs.
  2. Features a luxurious 15 inches depth.
  3. Has a 1.5″ Euro top – similar to a pillow top but stitched right in to the top layer of the mattress so it’s flush with the edge. Read more about how this helps you sleep here.

HeroBed Mattress Review: A Mattress with a Cause + Save $400!

By | Mattress | No Comments

Over 230 lbs or Pregnant? Or if you just like a more firm feel, check out HeroBed. It’s a new mattress that will not only solve your sleep issues, but it has a good cause too.

Be sure to keep reading because we have an incredible HeroBed discount code for you.

HeroBed Mattress Review

Before we get into the details, know that most of the reviews (pre Sept 2019) are for a different mattress by the same name that has since gone out of business. So if you see other HeroBed reviews, just know that the only one you can buy now is the one that looks like this:

HeroBed Mattress ReviewMattress provided for purposes of this review and we may earn a commission if you shop through our links.

It comes in a duffle bag like this which is much easier to move compared to a box. It has handles on each side and unzips at the top.

HeroBed Mattress Commercial

HeroBed has a really funny commercial where they test their bed against other popular online mattresses in a box brands. They have a line of real pregnant people and dads who just look like they are. But after sleeping on it I get it. It’s really quite supportive and something you need if you don’t want back pain when you’re pregnant.

At first I was totally confused why HeroBed started out their ad with pregnant women. But after sleeping on it, I get it. This mattress is more supportive than average. Really anyone who’s heavier will appreciate that extra support.

HeroBed Layers

Here’s Pablo describing what a HeroBed is made of:

2 inches of HeroFoam

1 inch of Talalay Latex

Pocketed coils

A base foam layer for support

The bed is a total of 12 inches deep.

HeSo with 3 layers of foam between you and the pocketed coils, you have cushioning but feel the more firm coils.

Mattress Mattress Vending Machine

I got to go to the factory in Utah where the HeroBed is made. While there, I got to meet Pablo, one of the owners. He started a retail mattress store in Utah that’s been very successful and has multiple locations. Then he saw the “bed in the box” trend and wanted to focus on that market.

Best mattress for heavy back sleepers?

Fact: The #1 reason people return a bed is that it’s too firm

Fact: firmness is subjective. For example, I think HeroBed is medium firm while someone else thinks might think it’s firm. Even two people from the same family can disagree! On this mattress, I found it more firm than most bed in a box brands.

Firmness comes down to the level of sinkage. You might love the feel of sinking into your bed, but find it too hot and almost impossible to move around once it warms up.

HeroBed is ideal for people who like or need a more firm bed. It has that lying on the mattress feel. So if you weigh 230 lbs or more AND you sleep on your stomach or back this mattress is great.

Heavier sleepers need additional support. With softer beds, you’ll sink through the softer layers more than someone who is lighter. Memory foam is known for being difficult to move around on and it gets warm with body heat. These issues are more pronounced in heavier sleepers.

This mattress is the best fit for back sleepers or combination (people who move around a lot).

HeroBed Mattress Trial and Warranty

HeroBed lets you try their mattress for 180 nights and if it’s not for you, return it for a full refund. It has a 15 year warranty.

The Cause: Why It’s Called The HeroBed

Now why is this called a HeroBed? It’s because when you buy a hero, you help everyday heros get a bed. For every 2 beds sold they donate 1 bed to charity.

But this is more than a marketing gimmick. It’s a commitment to help our own heroes. Your cheap mattress from China isn’t helping people who need a bed is it??

HeroBed covers come in 3 different colors. The bottom part is either gray, blue or pink. It may be the world’s first pink mattress! I think I’d buy one just for that reason. But each color represents a type of charity who gets the donation.

Pink – goes to support cancer research
Blue – for military and veterans
Gray – children’s care

HeroBed charities

I Wanna Be a Hero!

HeroBed carries Malouf mattress protectors. It’s a good idea to get one. Anytime you buy a new bed, buy a mattress protector too. It’ll extend your bed’s life and it’s a lot easier than washing a mattress. Plus it helps extend the life of your mattress. If liquid, food or other substances get inside the foam it can create bacteria and degrade the foam faster.

If you sleep with someone else, it’s much better to buy 2 twin XLs as we’ve explained below. If you’ve tried it this way, you will never go back to a king mattress again. And you’ll wish hotels had this option!

Here’s how: get a mattress topper to go over both of your twin mattresses. You won’t even notice the center seam down the middle. It will feel like one bed. Except for the fact that your mattress won’t get the sag and your partner’s movements during the night will not be nearly as annoying (keeping you awake). Plus when they get out of bed to go to the bathroom, you will sleep right through it.

But you’ll still be sleeping in the same room (ok, we can’t stop snoring, except suggest an adjustable bed).

Plus when you move, turn and flip on your bed, it’s much easier with 2 twins. This will save you from getting a hernia trying to rotate and\or flip a king. There are affiliate links in this post – thanks for shopping through our links.

Split King Sheets

Get twin XL fitted sheets and a king size sheet for the top and use king size blankets to feel more like you’re sharing one bed. Or don’t because you don’t want to share the covers! But do get a king size duvet so that the bed looks well made. Or, save the hassle and your cash and get these highly rated split king sheets in bamboo or microfiber fabric.

Bestselling Twin XL Mattresses

Two twin XL mattresses make up a regular king size mattress. You can buy one king size frame and put the mattresses side by side. That helps it feel like one bed but doesn’t have the drawbacks.
