Tricks and tips

  • How should I care for my Fleep mattress and my Fleep pillow?

    We don’t recommend machine washing or drying the mattress cover or the pillow cover. It should be hand washed in mild soap and air dried. Make sure the cover is completely dry before putting it back on.

    If you use a waterproof mattress protector, you only need to wash the mattress cover when it gets dirty.

  • How can I clean my Fleep if it’s stained?

    Accidents happen! If you spill liquid on your foam mattress, immediately remove the mattress cover. Sponge the stain with a towel. Once the moisture is removed, clean the stain with mild soap and let dry. Never use bleach. To prevent future accidents, use a waterproof mattress protector.

  • I’m allergic to dust mites. What can I do?

    All mattresses sold online or in stores provide an environment favorable to dust mites. No exceptions. So far there are no scientific tests proving the hypoallergenic capacity of a mattress. However, Fleep has selected state-of-the-art materials that seem to repel mites by offering a less favorable environment.

    To combat mites, Fleep recommends that you buy a waterproof mattress protector designed to prevent mites from propagating in the mattress.

    Washing your sheets regularly and keeping the house tidy will also help reduce allergies and ensure a good night’s sleep!

  • Should I flip my Fleep on a regular basis?

    There’s no need to flip your foam mattress over, but if you like both comfort levels that your Fleep offers, you can flip it each season.

    However, rotating your Fleep head to foot every time you change your sheets will help preserve the foam cells and prolong the life of the mattress.

  • My kids jump on my Fleep. Can this affect its comfort?

    Fleep isn’t designed as a playground substitute. But in any case, children usually prefer jumping on spring mattresses, as foam mattresses absorb bounces!

  • My mattress is uneven. What can I do?

    If your foam mattress seems to be tilted, it’s probably because your base is not perfectly level. Try putting the mattress on the floor. If it’s even on the floor, consider adjusting or changing your bed base.

  • How to sleep better . . . or get that perfect sleep you’ve been longing for!

    Lights out!

    Did you know that artificial light inhibits the production of the sleep hormone, melatonin? Eliminating all sources of artificial light can help you sleep better! At least 30 minutes before going to bed, power down your tablet, smartphone, TV, and computer—all sources of artificial light.

    Cut the caffeine!

    Studies show that caffeine can delay sleep, reduce sleep time, and shorten the period of deep sleep, so you’re best to avoid caffeine in the hours before bedtime. Coffee lovers should consider decaf.

    Exercise in the morning!

    Staying active is important, but the dopamine and noradrenaline your body produces during exercise can disturb your sleep. Stop exercising at least three hours before bedtime.

    Adjust the temperature!

    Having trouble sleeping well? You may be too hot or too cold. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the temperature in your bedroom should be around 18.5⁰C (65⁰F). Temperatures that are too high or too low can disturb your sleep.
