I’ve been wanting to ask this question/get advice on this subject for awhile and thought about going anon but whatever, what are anonymous boards for..
When D H and I do our business in the bedroom I tend to get very umm excited. Some times are more excitable than others obviously but the most excitable times result in an extremely soaked bed. I’m talking soaked through the sheets, mattress etc to the point where we can’t sleep in that and I need to wash the bedding right then. We recently got a new bed, mattress, pillows, duvet, comforter the whole works and I feel like I’m constantly washing the bedding which is not what I want to do after we have our fun.
I’ve already ordered a waterproof mattress protector to hopefully protect our mattress but what does everyone do..? Do you put a towel down? Do you have a second set of sheets on hand to switch out? Do you just say oh well that’s part of life and stick to your normal bedding washing routine regardless how much “fun” you and D H have that week?

Waterproof mattress protector, put a towel down, and keep washcloths handy for stopping leakage.

Well that’s definitely not a bad problem to have! Haha.
I normally just stick to our normal washing routine, although it’s been awhile since I actually soaked through the sheets. It seems like a waterproof matress topper is probably best in your case. Putting a towel down sounds annoying, just because they’re small and tend to get wrinkled and moved aside so easily. I cannot be bothered to focus on keeping a towel in place. What about a large blanket that is easy to wash. A soft throw, maybe?

We always put a big towel down first. Much easier to toss a towel in the laundry than strip the whole bed and wash all the sheets!

the mattress protector will definitely help! I put a towel down, though I don’t manage to get the bed messy every time. On my “feisty” days, I’ll stop partway through and clean up with a washcloth because a) it’s soaking the bed, and b) it’s killing whatever friction we may have had. Haha

lovelyruby : that’s how I feel about the towel too, that it would just get pushed to the side eventually! I like the idea of of blanket specifically for that purpose that’s easier to wash

Deff invest in a waterproof mattress cover! Worth every penny lol It has saved us countless times from from animal puke/pee to night sweats due to high fevers, unexpected period leakage etc.. towel on top is a good double up option as well.
ETA; it works great for protecting your mattress if you need to move as well (if you get the full zip cover) and easily replaceable. Also a second/third set of sheets is a must (we currently have 3 in rotation lol)

We use a large towel, but have to use another smaller, smoother one on top because the largre one was chafing my nipples!

A large bath towel works for us but if you are worried that a towel is too small or accidentally ends up be moved to the point it becomes redundant maybe consider something bigger that you put down to cover the whole bed. I’d look into something like a coverlet. They are designed to cover the whole bed are thick enough to absorb a solid amount of fluid, easily fit into your washing machine/dryer and naturally dry faster than a blanket would. It could be a good option for you.

We fold a towel in half and lay it in the middle of the bed.

Check out the liberator throe, or mamby silk waterproof throw. They make waterproof blankets to put down specifically to help with this problem!

What if you covered the bed in the plastic stuff that grandmothers used back in the 70s to cover the good couches??
