One of the advantages of owning a TEMPUR® mattress from our current collections* is that most models have removable washable covers. You can unzip, remove and machine wash the whole cover at up to either 40°C or 60°C depending on the mattress you have chosen. (This task is easier with two people.) In addition our Elite and Luxe models have been designed with QuickRefresh™ tops. This means you only need unzip, remove and wash the top layer which you directly sleep on. It is important when you launder your mattress cover that you always follow the manufacturer's instructions which can be found on a label stitched inside.
We also recommend the use of a TEMPUR® Mattress Protector to keep your bed nice and fresh.
*Because we are always looking to improve our products, TEMPUR® owners of older models including those with Soft-Touch™ covers, should check the care instructions of their mattress carefully. Some models such as the TEMPUR® Celebrity 31 could have covers which cannot be removed or washed. For Soft-Touch™ models with a QuickRefresh™ removable top, please note this is only for airing your mattress. It may not be laundered.
As a general rule of thumb, if your mattress has TEMPUR® Material embedded or quilted into the cover (this applies to the majority of older 'Deluxe' models and all Soft-Touch™ models,) while it may be removed for airing, it is not washable. Any subsequent washing will invalidate your guarantee.
