pursuant to doing the laundry
I now have to buy a new mattress pad for camping. I apparently melted the old one in the dryer. I don't think I have another queen-size mattress pad laying around here; I'll have to look. Good thing it didn't stick to the cotton sheets, or I'd be mightily pissed.

I wonder if IKEA makes mattress pads?

i feel: blah blah

DOH.

I hate when I do that.

I dunno about Ikea, but sometimes Tuesday Morning stores have good deals.

Holy crap. I didn't think there even were any Tuesday Morning stores in Mass, and there one is, 3.5 miles from my house!

IKEA makes EVERYTHING.

Sure, Ikea makes mattress pads.

the word "melted" made me think of this:

We have the bestest waterproof mattress cover thingies, they're gore-tex with terry bonded to them, and not plasticy at all. They're not *padded*, mind you, but unlike any previous waterproof mattress pads we've had they don't make one all sweaty.

Re: the word "melted" made me think of this:

They sound pretty bullet-proof. I don't really need waterproof, though; I just need something as a barrier between us and the sheet and the air mattress.

Yep Ikea makes them but I was looking and only the 4 inch one was worth a damn. I personally found a down filled for 60 bucks a few years ago that wasn't half bad.

You're thinking feather bed -- I mean something like this.

yikes!
too bad about the mattress pad. I am pretty sure IKEA makes them. I love that store...

Ikea makes mattress pads but BE CAREFUL because Ikea bed sizes <> "normal" bed sizes, so it may or may not fit :)
tashabear From: tashabear Date: August 23rd, 2006 02:56 pm (UTC) (base camp)
It's an air mattress; it's smaller than a queen-sized mattress anyway.

That's handy. I found out about Ikea mattresses being different sizes the hard way (trying to fit one in a normal sized bedframe. whoops), so I wanted to make sure you knew ;)

Thanks! I actually ended up buying a pad from Amazon, so I can rotate it in with my regular bedding as needed.
