I bought this mattress protector to keep my mattress topper safe and to add some more softness and cushion to my bed.
It's very thick and it definitely added a good deal more comfort to my already very comfortable bed.
I'm very happy with the quality and extremely happy knowing that my mattress topper and my mattress are now safe from anything that could have possibly damaged the high dollar topper I purchased or my mattress.
I couldn't imagine trying to get any smells or stains out. That would likely be a pain.
Very happy with my purchase.
