memory foam mattress - holy fuck this shit stinks
 
I bought a new mattress from Ikea - one that has memory foam. I see some people complaining that memory foam mattresses make you hot....which is kind of funny because i bought this one due to the fact it said something like 'keeps you cool by moving the heat away from your body' in the store display.

I had never slept on a memory foam mattress before so didn't know what to expect......i was not ready for the smell - i guess they call it 'off-gassing' - this thing has stunk up my entire apartment. smells like a combination of paint thinner and mildew. apparently you are supposed to let it air out 1-2 days before sleeping on it....good thing i had them haul away my old mattress when they brought the new one....so i've been inhaling these fumes for the past 2 nights.....don't seem to be having any issues so far.

and i haven't been sweating or anything so thats good...but its also winter time so maybe that will change in the summer..hope not.

anyway, anyone else have one of these and did you have the smell problem? was wondering how long the smell will linger around.....reading on the web it seems like people say anywhere from 2 days to 1 month. good lord.

the smell lasted less than a week. i was sweating my ass off for about 5 days. then it got better and now i love it.

I'm waiting for an Angry Joe review.

They get hot, and then you sweat and the sweat soaks into the mattress and you eventually discover a new replacement smell.

Have one, smell went away after a few days. They are awesome.

i dunno about memory foam mattresses but my memory foam pillow was ****ing awesome

Your first problem is expecting anything of quality from IKEA.

Rayn 03-04-2013 13:09

you overpaid at ikea but whatever i got mine at bobs for like 800.
anyway, make sure you get a mattress cover you don't want all your sweat and **** absorbing in or stains getting in it plus it voids the warranty.

Tempur Pedic is good. Don't use the massage stuff that much, but I do put my back and feet up. Also, get a bed liner, it's a plastic type cover that will catch any spills or drool. Then you have your sheet over it. I also have a drool towel I lay on my pillow. Don't drool all the time, but that's a nasty smell.

You apparently drool enough that you need a drool towel.

Get a water proof mattress pad. Every guy should have one anyway, *****es be wet. Or wasted after sex and pissing my bed, ugh.
