Now bedbugs are a completely different story. With the banning of DDT in the sixties, bedbugs have made a comeback in a big way, they are now epidemic in many of our cities and towns. Bedbugs are excellent travelers and they or their eggs can survive cold, even freezing. They are, or are becoming, resistant to many of the chemicals legally used to kill them. Once your home or hotel is infested, they are extremely difficult to eradicate. Bedbugs don't transmit disease but being bitten can cause reactions from local irritation, redness and swelling to a full blown allergic episode, not to mention a bad case of the heebie jeebies. Short of using chemicals or professional pest control services, the only reliable way to kill bedbugs and their eggs is high heat for an extended period of time. Washing affected clothing or bedding in hot water, at least 60 degrees centigrade/130 fahrenheit, then drying on high heat is the best way. Some pest control companies use steam to kill the vermin but this must be done properly to ensure complete success. Just one egg will be all that's needed to re-infest. With that said, a travel sheet will help to protect against bedbugs, especially if is zippered. That way only your head is vulnerable to attack. Theoretically a bedbugs' mouth parts are long enough to penetrate fabric but highly unlikely.
Always go for a quality mattress: In order to have a fine sleep you would require a fine mattress . This will give a good support and comfort extent to your body parts like your shoulder, hips and back. You should not count on effects like thickness since they do not promise any quality, however, what matters is the way it is made and the comfort and hold up it gives to your body.
While it is highly unlikely that you will encounter a bed in a hotel which, not only has not been changed, but is still damp with the previous guests infected bodily fluids, "better safe than sorry", in this day and age of pandemics and poor housekeeping, is a catch phrase to live by.
Another option for overnight protection is bed underpads. They are a fool proof way of ensuring a dry bed. Mostly, these pads have an absorbent layer on the top and a waterproof layer on the other side. Underpads are a good option for those who are allergic to the material of adult diapers or find them uncomfortable. At least when home, they are a better option. At the same time, using bed pads alone, without wearing any cloth pads will leave your clothes wet and you will be disturbed during the night. Combine them with a diaper that is soft on your skin and provides decent protection. Bed underpads can used as a precaution to keep the bed sheet and mattress dry. Alternatively, you can also try bedside collection bags, that collect liquids, for the night. They are the best for overnight protection.
