During delivery of your mattress

During shipping, the textile covers of larger items such as mattresses may move from their original position. Once you have unpacked and placed your TEMPUR® product, allow some time for the TEMPUR® foam material to warm up in the ambient air temperature. Then you can simply straighten and smooth the textile cover back into position by hand.If you have purchased a compressed TEMPUR® EASE mattress IMPORTANT: Compressed TEMPUR® EASE mattresses must be unpacked no later than 6 months after the productions date. Upon arrival of your TEMPUR® EASE mattress, check the production date on the box and make sure to unpack it within the required unpacking period.You can use your TEMPUR® EASE mattress straight away after unpackaging. It can take up to 72 hours (3 days) before your TEMPUR® EASE mattress has regained its original shape and height. The tight compression of the mattress can cause the cover to crease. This is expected and will disappear as the mattress fully recovers. In some cases, you may be required to wash your cover to remove the creases.

  • Always follow the washing instructions on the label placed inside the mattress cover.

That 'new product' smell

Some people notice a slight odour to their new TEMPUR® product once unpacked. This is completely harmless and will disappear after a short period of use. Allow the product to air or 'breathe', preferably uncovered in a well-ventilated area before and after use to speed up this process.

About the TEMPUR® foam Material

The TEMPUR® foam Material is a pressure-relieving surface, engineered with a viscoelastic open cell structure that absorbs and evenly distributes the weight of your body for maximised comfort. The temperature-sensitive properties soften, compress and conform to the unique shape and weight of your body at average room temperature for personalised support. The high density of the TEMPUR® foam Material ensures maximum dimensional stability and comfort.The TEMPUR® foam Material reacts to the thermal impact of the body. The viscoelasticity in the foam material ensures your TEMPUR® returns to its original shape after compression, with a certain built in delay. This delay varies with different temperatures. You can expect a firmer feel in cooler conditions of 18°C or less and the higher the temperature the softer your TEMPUR® will feel.

Getting Used to The Feel

If your previous mattress or pillow used more traditional methods of support such as springs, feathers and/or fibre, it is likely your TEMPUR® products will initially feel different. The unique pressure-relieving properties of the TEMPUR® foam Material, can take some time for the body to adjust and get used to.

The break-in period

TEMPUR® MATTRESS (not relevant for compressed TEMPUR® EASE mattresses)The more time you spend on or in bed: resting, reading or watching TV, the better. The extra movement will help the cells in the TEMPUR® foam Material to open. As they open, the cells 'breathe' and respond more rapidly to weight and temperature, but they will return to their original shape. To the user it may feel like the mattress is getting softer, but in fact there is no change to the pressure- relieving properties of your product.

No need to flip: advances in TEMPUR®

Advances in TEMPUR® technology have resulted in keeping maintenance to a minimum. Each mattress model has a build-up of multiple layers, so you sleep on the top side only. To prolong the life of our products, from time to time you can rotate your mattress head to foot.


  • During the first 2-3 weeks of ownership, it can help to use the pillow as a cushion during the day to improve the support and pressure-relieving benefits delivered when you are sleeping.
  • During normal usage you can experience lumps of foam. The pillow can be massaged back into shape. With the cover still on, place the pillow on a flat surface. Push the foam filling towards the middle of the pillow, while gently pulling the foam lumps apart from both sides. Once lumps are gone, gently even out the filling to restore the pillow back into shape (for pillows filled with TEMPUR® foam material granulates).

Can I use a hot water bottle or electric blanket?

Please note: TEMPUR® would not recommend using an electric blanket with a TEMPUR® mattress as the mattress works best in response to the natural body heat of the user. You may not experience optimum support if an electric blanket is used, as potentially it could cause irreversible damage to the pressure relieving properties of your mattress. If, however you still wish to have extra warmth, we would suggest an over electric blanket rather an under blanket. Please ensure it is not more than 10 years old and in proper working order.

For the same reasons above, TEMPUR® also do not recommend use of a hot water bottle with your mattress. If you still feel the need to use one, should this item develop a leak which wets, stains or damages your mattress we must advise you it will invalidate your manufacturer's guarantee.

Moving, transport, storage and disposal

  • Unless otherwise stated TEMPUR® products should NOT be bent or pressed out of their original shape, as you risk damaging the foam material and losing all the properties and benefits it brings.
  • Due to the nature of the foam material in TEMPUR® products it can become slightly compressed during transportation or storage. This is expected, the product will return to its normal size after a short time in room temperature
  • Do not unroll a TEMPUR® mattress Topper when it is cold, as you will be at risk of tearing or cracking the foam material. Allow the TEMPUR® mattress Toppers to adjust to room temperature before unrolling.
  • TEMPUR® products should be stored in their original shape. Exempt from this is the TEMPUR® Travel Pillow, which may be transported rolled up in the bag supplied (the bag should only be used when travelling to avoid permanent deformation of the pillow).
  • TEMPUR® Mattresses must be stored flat, ideally in the original packaging (it is not possible to reuse packaging for the compressed TEMPUR® EASE mattresses).
  • The compressed TEMPUR® EASE mattresses must not be re-compressed for storage.
  • TEMPUR® mattress Toppers can be stored either rolled up or stored flat.
  • TEMPUR® products must be stored in a dry environment (maximum 65% relative humidity).
  • For disposal of your used product please refer to the local authority within your country market.

Cleaning and maintenance

  • Most textile covers can be removed and washed. Please follow the specific cleaning instruction for your product on the product label located inside the textile cover.
  • Special textile covers which contain TEMPUR® foam material that cannot be washed or dry- cleaned, can easily be removed for airing and brushing.
  • We do not recommend using a vacuum cleaner on textile covers as it may damage the cover.
  • Pilling balls may occur on textile covers during normal use as a function of the interaction with exterior textiles. Pilling balls are not an indicator of poor quality and can easily be removed with a battery driven ’textile shaver’/‘bobble remover’. IMPORTANT: Always follow the instructions for use from the supplier of the “textile shaver”/”bobble remover”. Incorrect use may damage the cover.

Textile covers quilted with TEMPUR® WASHABLE material:

  • Can be washed and tumble-dried, line dried/flat dried. Check the product label inside the textile cover to see if your cover can be washed.

TEMPUR® Down Luxe Pillow:


  • Remove foam bag with TEMPUR® foam material granulate before washing the down cover.
  • Use enzyme free laundry detergent for the down cover and tumble dry with a couple of dryer balls (or clean tennis balls) to avoids down clumping and to ensure the down dries evenly.
  • Do not use fabric softener on the down cover.
  • The down cover must be completely dry before use or storage
  • Tip: Weigh the Down Luxe Pillow cover (without the foam bag) before washing. Tumble-dry the cover after wash until the cover has the same weight as before wash. Then you know that the down cover is completely dry.
