So, today I was finally able to get out and run some errands after the terrible weather we have had in Rhode Island. I went out to Walmart to pick up two essential parts of the move. I bought pillow protectors and zippered mattress protectors. You will NEED these when you move. Whether you are hiring a moving service or moving yourself, odds are the mattress will be dragged and pulled through rooms and the floors-YIKES! I have learned this the hard way. The zippered mattress protectors were about $12 each and the pillow protectors were about $3.50 for a set of two. Even though these are cheap and will tear eventually, you will be happy that your mattress wasn’t used as a floor cleaner!
*Don’t forget to make sure that they mattress protectors have zippers!! If they don’t, it will not serve its purpose to keep the entire mattress clean.
