Many people who have refinished wood furniture are aware that polyurethane is highly flammable in most forms. But memory foam is not the only highly flammable material used in mattress manufacturing.

Clarissa Bancroft futon, January 26th , 2017. Mattresses originated in the Middle East as early as the Neolithic period. It is thought that early humans used animal pelts to cover piles of debris such as straw and grass to create soft sleeping spots.
