While there for awhile memory foam mattresses were a big thing, it may not be lasting since even the foam is not organic and contains chemicals that are not good for us to ingest. We have gone from goose feathers to wool that contains unnatural substances. As more people become concerned about the chemicals around them, the more consumers will gain interest in buying organic mattresses instead of those filled with memory foam or polyurethane foam. Providing a healthier product is the role of organic mattress manufacturers who have taken an active role in making certain consumers are using safe and healthy products in their homes.
How thick should you go with a firm memory foam mattress topper? They come in a range of thicknesses however the common ones are two or three inch designs. A firm one should be three inches or thicker as this provides more support to you when you sleep in the memory foam and will prevent the parts that are heavier bumping into the bottom of the bed through the memory foam.
The real reason for foam encasement is that it saves the manufacturer lots of money. Plastic foam is much less expensive than spring steel. Foam encasing a mattress reduces the amount of spring steel used by eighteen percent. Then it gives the manufacturer a marketing ploy (marketing spin) to promote their mattresses and to convince the customer to pay more money for the extra feature. Manufacturers of latex and memory foam mattresses also employ this tactic. Please read our other articles and learn the many other crafty things mattress manufacturers do to rip off their customers!
Prior to the 1940's, mattresses were still crudely constructed and many poorer people did not own proper mattresses, but still slept on roughly made ones. As America began to climb out of the Great Depression, the country found itself with a surplus of cotton. Having a surplus was driving down the price that farmers could get for cotton. This situation worked against economic recovery, so the United States government stepped in. In 1940, the government launched a campaign teaching people how to make mattresses at home. It even provided the cotton, the ticking, and the sewing needles needed to make mattresses. Government agents went out and taught people how to make the mattresses, and encouraged them to teach their friends and neighbors. The results of this campaign were that cotton prices rose, the cotton surplus was used, and even the very poor had soft beds and new skills.
