What is a mattress cover?
A mattress cover has 2 main roles: from one hand, the mattress cover avoid the smells, the bacteria and germ to develop, and on the other hand, it help to extend the shelf-life of your mattress, avoiding stains.
WHY DO WE SWEAT DURING THE NIGHT?
In average, our body can give off a liter of sweat per night, for many different reasons : - Stress: it influences the functioning of our body and it is translated into an inconstant sleep, which provokes important night-time sweating. - A bedroom temperature too high or too low: our body has to double their efforts to maintain its temperature around 37°C, and so, sweat during both situations. - A maladjusted pajamas: a pajama too warm or made of synthetic fabric stimulates sweating at night.
