The Do’s & Don’ts of Your Ace Collection Mattress
- It's Not a trampoline. Don't let the kids jump on your sleep set. Their rough-housing could do damage to the interior construction, as well as themselves!
- The Ace Collection is designed to be a larger version of a standard mattress. We have not undertaken specific designs or tests relating to the safety of the bed for co-sleeping/bed sharing with infants. Like any mattress, customers should consult with their doctors and review medical literature, such as the recommendations of the American College of Pediatrics (http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/138/5/e20162938), to determine the appropriate and safe sleeping arrangement for their child. The Ace Collection does not make any representative as to the safety of using our mattress for co sleeping/bed sharing with children.
- Don't remove that tag. Contrary to popular belief, it's NOT illegal to remove the law tag, but the information on the label will serve as a means of identification should you have a warranty claim.
- Give it good support. Use a sturdy bedframe. Make sure your frame has the extra center support that will prevent bowing or breakage.
- Use a protective pad. A good quality, washable mattress pad (and one for the foundation, too, if you like) is a must to keep your set fresh and free from stains.
- Rotate Regularly. Rotating your mattress around every couple of months will help equalize the wear and tear that normally occurs. (While it's still brand new, "body impressions" may form, especially on extra plush mattress surfaces. Rotate every few weeks for the first few months to help smooth them out.)
- Don't bend or fold. Unless a mattress or foundation is made entirely of soft material (like foam or cotton), or is specially-built for folding, it probably had a border wire inside that isn't meant to be bent.
- Don't dry clean. The chemicals in dry clean agents/ spot removers may be harmful to the fabric or underlying materials. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. But if you're determined to tackle a strain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly. Do not ever soak a mattress or foundation.
