Welcome to Texas Banter’s first giveaway!

Now, with that out of the way, do I have the perfect gift for those who suffer from allergies! I was able to review Protect-A-Bed‘s Premium Mattress Protector. For those that know me, I have allergies- bad. To see my review, visit “Say Goodbye to Allergies in Bed!“.

Did you know that your body can lose up to 2 pints of moisture for every 8 hours you sleep? This moisture is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites.  Many people don’t realize their mattress is one of the largest sources of allergens in their home, because over time, mattresses collect and absorb dust mites, bacteria, bodily fluids, skin cells, etc.

Protect-A-Bed mattress protectors provide an impermeable barrier between you and the dust mites and allergens within your bedding, while remaining breathable and comfortable. The ultra-thin, extra soft and super absorbent mattress protectors will not detract from the comfort of your bedding, and they are easy-to-use and machine washable.

This is what causes those sneezing nighttimes when you go to bed at night.

Thanks to Protect-A-Bed (who provided the product), I was able to to review their Premium Mattress Protector.

Did you know that your body can lose up to 2 pints of moisture for every 8 hours you sleep? This moisture is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites.  Many people don’t realize their mattress is one of the largest sources of allergens in their home, because over time, mattresses collect and absorb dust mites, bacteria, bodily fluids, skin cells, etc. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 2 million dust mites live in unprotected mattresses, and many people are allergic to their feces, which is left behind within mattresses and pillows. Kinda gross, I know. Now I know why my allergies got worse when I went to bed.

Protect-A-Bed mattress protectors provide an impermeable barrier between you and the dust mites and allergens within your bedding, while remaining breathable and comfortable. The ultra-thin, extra soft and super absorbent mattress protectors will not detract from the comfort of your bedding, and they are easy-to-use and machine washable. So say goodbye to a wet mattress due to accidents!

I actually tested the “wet mattress theory” with a spray bottle. I sprayed a small area twice. I was surprised when I lifted the mattress protector. It was virtually dry! While the terry cloth upper was wet, you couldn’t tell it came from the same bed!

As a sufferer of allergies, I have noticed a difference in my breathing at night. Besides a terry cloth cover, it’s relatively cool at night is is remarkably comfortable.

Lately I’ve been getting a good night’s rest. Most of it I attribute to my finally getting my body back to where it should be. I’ve eaten enough bananas to make a monkey jealous and have gotten enough rest to make even a couch potato seem like he’s a linebacker in the NFL.

And while I know I am getting a good night’s rest, something bothers me about sleeping. The bed has become so uncomfortable. I know I shouldn’t complain because I at least have a bed to sleep on. But with someone that has arthritis in HER HIP, it’s hard to get comfortable without writhing in pain. As I was laying down today to get my daily nap (Yes, I take daily naps. Trust me, they work.), I started watching something on the Discovery Channel. I think the show was “How It’s Made” or something to that effect. They were making down and feather bed…. stuff. They showed the finally feather pillow and down pillowtop on a nice bed. It looks so pretty! So I vowed at that moment in time (somewhere between conscious and dead to the world) that whenever I had the money, I was going to buy a pillowtop for the bed.

Oh yea, on a really random note: Zeus went to the park for the first time since the accident. He loved it! He ran around a little, didn’t bark at anyone, found a thick pecan stick (yes, we brought it home for him), drank some water… oh he had fun! Which makes me think… How on Earth can dogs get excited about sticks? Unless it’s a challenge and something to chew on? I don’t know. But what do I do know is that he won’t need another stick for a while. It’s atleast 2 inches thick. Yep, he’s gonna be busy.
