Silentnight Geltex Affinity 1850 Single Mattress
The Geltex®1850 is the finest mattress in the Select collection: it contains the thickest layer of viscoelastic gel and a massive 1850 pocket springs.
Geltex is a fusion of gel molecules, foam crystals and air capsules, which means it’s not only a wonderfully breathable material that can maintain the perfect microclimate for sleep, but also distribute your weight evenly across the surface of the mattress to improve your circulation and properly align the spine.
The spring system contains thousands of individual pocket springs that respond independently to the weight and movement of your body. This helps to reduce pressure points and ‘roll together’, so that, like Hippo and Duck, your sleep will go undisturbed no matter how much your partner tosses and turns at night.
The Affinity 1850 is also hand tufted for that classic look, and comes with flag-stitched handles to aid rotation.
Includes a 5-year warranty.
To ensure that your mattress remains in pristine condition for years to come, we’ve compiled the following expert recommendations:
Say No to Bending and Jumping
While it might be tempting to use your mattress as a makeshift trampoline, bending or jumping on it can compromise its structural integrity. This can lead to premature sagging and reduce the effectiveness of its support features.
Prioritise Linen Hygiene
A clean bed is a happy bed. We recommend washing your bed sheets, pillowcases, and other linen every one to two weeks. This not only keeps your sleeping environment fresh but also helps to minimise the accumulation of dust mites and allergens.
Invest in a Quality Mattress Protector
A mattress protector acts as a safeguard against accidental spills, stains, and even allergens. By using one, you’re not just keeping your mattress clean; you’re also preserving its aesthetic appearance and overall longevity.
Daily Aeration is Key
Your mattress needs to breathe just like you do. Make it a habit to pull back the covers each morning and let your mattress air out for a bit. This simple act helps to dissipate moisture, reduce odors, and maintain a more hygienic sleep surface.
Rotation Rituals for Single-Sided Mattresses
If your mattress is single-sided, it’s crucial to rotate it from head to toe. For the first three months, make this a weekly routine. After that initial period, shifting to a monthly rotation will suffice. This practice helps to ensure even wear and tear, thereby extending the lifespan of your mattress.
Prompt Attention to Spills
Accidents happen, but quick action can prevent a small spill from becoming a big problem. If you do experience a spill, clean it up immediately using warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. This will help to prevent the liquid from seeping deep into the mattress, where it could cause long-term damage.
