How to use a memory foam mattress topper?

Here are some simple but surprisingly helpful tips.

The unboxing process

When you receive your new memory foam mattress topper, it usually arrives rolled, boxed up, and tightly packed. Make sure you place the box in the desired room. The material is such that it expands and increases in dimensions, so it is much simpler to move it around prior to unboxing.

Removing the packaging

It is preferable to use scissors rather than a knife to remove the packaging, as the knife could damage the material due to any deep cuts. Some companies also provide a customized cutter, which is also convenient to use. Be careful, no matter which tool you choose to use.

Let the mattress topper expand

Once all the packaging is removed, let the memory foam air out and expand for about 12 to 48 hours. The topper shape tends to conform to the shape of the surface it is laid on. So it is highly advised to lay it on a flat and even surface. Make sure it is not exposed to direct sunlight or high heat. This might damage the memory foam and make it less responsive. Moreover, this will make sure that the mattress topper reaches its intended width/height and will get rid of any remaining smell from the extensive packaging.

Place it atop the mattress

Remove all items like blankets, pillows, etc. from your mattress. Then, carefully place the memory foam mattress topper on top of it. Make sure it lays evenly on top, without any bulges or folds. Now that this is done place the rest of your bedding back on top and make your bed as you usually would. It’s that simple.
