How to care for your Brolly Sheets

  • ● Before first use, wash separately to soften the fabric and help to make it more absorbent. 
  • ● Cold or warm machine wash, line dry or warm tumble. 
  • ● Do not iron or dry clean or use bleach or fabric softeners.
  • ● Do not dry clean.
  • ● If used with an electric blanket please make sure your blanket is on a low setting.  

 

How to use a Brolly Sheet

Place the Brolly Sheet quilted side up on top of your bottom fitted sheet and tuck the sides in under the side of the mattress. Placing the Brolly Sheet over the bottom sheet makes it easier to quickly swap out a wet one for dry one in the middle of the night.  Watch the videos below and see just how easy it is to swap a Brolly Sheet.

Not recommended for use with electric blankets. If you have to then make sure the electric blanket is on a low setting. 

How do Brolly Sheets work?

Because Brolly Sheets lie on top of your normal bottom sheet, after an accident you just need to whip off the Brolly Sheet and replace with another. This means you do not need to strip the entire bed and start again and you can gain that extra beauty sleep! 

How much liquid does a Brolly Sheet hold?

A Brolly Sheets waterproof mattress protector holds just under 2 litres of liquid.

How big are the flaps?

The average mattress is around 20 cm deep. Brolly Sheets “flaps” are 45 cm each side allowing you plenty to tuck under the mattress.  If you have an especially “wriggly” person in a single, a king single (or large single) will give you an extra 5 cm each side for extra tuck in.  A queen size on a double bed will also give you about 15cm extra each side to tuck in.

 

How many Brolly Sheets do I need?

We recommend 2 as a good start then you always have a clean one to use as a replacement in the middle of the night. Most people who buy one come back and buy a second - so it's cheaper on postage to buy two at once. It's great to have extras if you are going away for several nights or have more than one child toilet training.  If you are travelling, why not try the Brolly Sheets sleeping bag liner? Why not leave one at Grandma's house?

 

Do Brolly Sheets come in different sizes?

Yes, Brolly Sheets are available in single, king single and queen size. The single and king single come in all colours. The queen size is available in white, pink and blue only (if you need a Brolly Sheet for a double bed then you would buy the queen size). See the size guide above. 

 

I have a double bed what size Brolly Sheet sheet do I need to purchase?

You will need to buy the queen size Brolly Sheets or a double size Brolly sheet. Queen size is a little wider than the double you will have more to tuck under the mattress. 

 

Do I need to wash my Brolly Sheet before using it?

Yes, we recommend you wash your Brolly Sheet before you use it. Your Brolly Sheet will stand up to repeated washes in cold or warm water, you can just throw them in with a normal load. You can tumble dry them on low heat or line dry outside. Do not iron, do not dry clean and do not use fabric softeners. 

 

Are Brolly Sheets good for toilet training a toddler?

Yes! They are easy to fit and swap out when they get messy, saving precious sleep in the middle of the night. They wash easily and dry fairly quickly - you can even tumble dry them if need be. They are our number 1 option for a waterproof mattress protector.  If you're about to start toilet training your child, check out our free Toilet Training EBook, you guide to potty training.

 

How long do Brolly Sheets last?

Brolly Sheets can last a number of years without a noticeable change in performance, depending on how frequently they're washed and how well they're cared for. They are a good quality product that's reliable and well made. Many customers have mentioned how they have handed down their Brolly Sheets to their next child to use after their first no longer needed it.  

 

Do Brolly Sheets make a crinkly noise when you sleep on them?

No. They're waterproof but near-silent and crinkle free, so even the most restless sleepers can sleep in peace.
