Why So Many are Switching to FIRM Mattresses?

In the last 16 years of working at White Lotus Home, I am surprised by the number of people that prefer a Firm Mattress and choose our Organic Boulder Mattresses.

The Boulder is the firmest mattress we hand make in the USA, but only since 2007, not 1981 when White Lotus Home was established.

After taking over this great company in 2006, local customers practically begged me to make our already semi-firm mattresses even firmer. Their words were something like “If you make it as firm as I need it, I will buy one for the entire family” and they eventually did and continued to tell their friends and family. Also, a cool company in Boulder Colorado had a similar request and our Boulder Mattress was born.

Our Boulder Mattresses are rolled up, vacuumed, and shipped all over the world now. Below are the most popular reasons why our Organic Cotton Boulder Style Mattress, was the best selling White Lotus Home Mattress in 2020.   


   






✅ Back doctors suggested trying a firm mattress. 

✅ “This is the way I slept the best back in my country”

✅ In need of more support due to a recent medical condition.

✅ Many physically active clients report that their body feels better every morning.

✅ Tired of sleeping on the floor...

DON’T just take my word for it, below are recent reviews found on our page.

Hannah C (Greendale, Wisconsin)  November 30, 2020. Have been sleeping on it every night and we love it! We wanted a very firm mattress and this fits the bill. I would recommend not only this mattress but this company to anyone that needs a new mattress. The quality is clearly better than any mattress I've ever owned. It is handmade but very durable.

Francis J (Minneapolis, Minnesota) August 14, 2020. This mattress is nice and firm! Maybe we should have got the 8" instead of the 7" because sheets don't fit very tight and my partner does not like creases in the sheets, but thats on us. The mattress firmness level is awesome!

Andrea O (Virginia Beach, Virginia) March 25, 2020. We ordered this mattress for our son to move him out of a crib to a "big-boy" bed and he is stoked. I am excited because, like our daughter, I know that he is sleeping on a healthy mattress! Since *** all of our bedding (mattresses and pillows) has been purchased from White Lotus.

Tina G. March 04, 2020. This is my third mattress from White Lotus. I'm very pleased w/this mattress. I hadn't ordered the one wrapped in wool (w/in a cotton cover of course) before, cuz I was afraid it would bother my immune issues, but this time I did and it's perfect. They all come w/a slight odor from the natural materials, but it does dissipate over time. This mattress is very comfortable, yet very firm which I love. I highly recommend it if you like a firm mattress w/no flame retardants.

Maureen M December 15, 2018. I have many products from WHITE LOTUS and honestly, like them all! Am impressed with their philosophy of sleep and design! The Boulder mattress is the best mattress I have had, and have had many over the years. In an effort to achieve comfort related to scoliosis and MS mobility, I have tried many and conclude that the Boulder offers the most comfort, support.

Alora November 27, 2017. I really like this mattress. It is firm and really helped ease my back problems I was having with previous mattresses that were too soft. When I bought the mattress I paid a little extra for handles, which is incredibly helpful for rotating the mattresses and move in/move out.

Sam April 23, 2017. I love this mattress! It is very firm as described, super supportive; it also acts as a natural temperature regulator because of the wool and I don't get too hot or too cold sleeping on it. It just feels very comfortable and the way a bed should feel. I would highly recommend to anyone who likes a firm mattress!

Shelly December 15, 2018. We absolutely love this mattress. It is so supportive, and I love knowing that I am sleeping on a health-promoting bed.

Organic vs Green Mattress Pros & Cons!

White Lotus Home

As a continuation of the Mattress Pros & Cons! We would appreciate it if you share your own personal Mattress experience below!

The Difference Between a Green & Organic White Lotus Home Mattress

All Dreamton & Vegan Mattresses are available in the Green Cotton or Organic Cotton options. Green Cotton is like buying fruits from a local farm while Organic Cotton is like buying fruits from Whole Foods Market and the likes.

What is GOTS-Certified Organic Cotton? 

It is where cotton gets its degree, GOTS-certified organic cotton is held to the highest standards for health and sustainability. The core of most of our mattress options are hand made of endless fluffy layers of 100% pesticide-free US-grown GOTS Certified organic cotton raised sustainably, from our farms to your bed. Pesticide and insecticide-free, 100% natural and biodegradable, safe for sensitive skin, firm, yet soft, consumes 91% less water to grow than regular cotton, and protects farmers from pesticide exposure.


What is Green Cotton?   

A more affordable option to our organic cotton, our conventionally grown Green Cotton is grown in the United States — it just isn’t certified organic. This more affordable material is slightly firmer than organic cotton, but the real beauty is in what it doesn’t have: NO dyes, NO perfumes & NO flame retardants. Grown by farmers right here in the US, Green Cotton is a fabulous cost-saving material that doesn’t put you in contact with harmful chemicals typically found in cotton.

Your Clean Green Laundry Routine

Your Clean Green Laundry Routine

Your Clean Green Laundry Routine

Toxins and unwanted chemicals lie in more places than you might think, and when it comes to bedding and linens, the last thing you want is to sleep in residue all night long. Naturally laundering your linens and avoiding harsh chemicals benefits you and your local environment in a number of ways. If you're looking to clean up your laundry routine, here are some natural practices you might like to consider: 

Use Vinegar and Wool Dryer Balls 

Fabric softener and dryer sheets are perhaps one of the biggest offenders in conventional laundry practices. Quaternary ammonium compounds, called "quats" for short, are the chemical compounds found in liquid softeners and dryer sheets that make your clothes feel soft. The problem is that these compounds can trigger asthma and linger on the clothing you wear and linens you sleep in long after they've been removed from the dryer. That means you're carrying these chemicals with you all day and sleeping with them all night long. Combine quats with all the other fragrances, colors, and preservatives found in fabric softeners, and you've got yourself a wearable chemical cocktail that sticks to your clothes, pollutes the air in your home, and gets dumped right into your local water source with every wash. 

The great news is that avoiding fabric softeners doesn't mean you have to wear stiff clothing or sleep in scratchy sheets. You can use vinegar in the washer and wool dryer balls instead to help soften your clothes and linens naturally. Wool contains a natural oil called lanolin that is released from its fibers when heated by your dryer. As an added bonus, if you want to naturally scent your clothing, just put a few drops of your favorite essential oils right onto your wool dryer balls before each cycle. Most wool dryer balls are about the size of a baseball and can be purchased online, or you can make them yourself by balling up and felting some 100% wool yarn. 

Sun Your Stains Out

Chemical bleaches and stain removers might be effective at removing stains, but they are harmful for the environment, harsh to breathe in, and can damage your skin if you accidentally come into direct contact with them. Did you know that you can actually remove stains by drying your clothes and linens out in the sun? Even some of the most stubborn stains can be bleached out in a sunbath. The next time you have a rough morning and spill your coffee on your shirt, don't sweat it. Save yourself the cash, time, and hassle of dealing with stain removers by simply hanging your stained fabric outside in full sun after it's just come out of the washer. Usually, two to three hours will do the trick. Keep in mind that sun bleaching is often more effective when the fabric is wet, so even if you don't want to wash the whole thing, wet down the stained area before hanging your fabric out in the sun to get the best results from this all-natural, chemical-free, age-old stain removing method.

Consider Natural Laundry Detergents 

Fortunately for conscious consumers, new all-natural laundry detergents are being added to the market all the time. You can find a small selection at almost any grocery store, and if you're someone who enjoys an occasional DIY project, you can even make natural laundry detergent yourself! There are all sorts of easy DIY laundry soap recipes online, so you can experiment as much or as little as you please to find whatever concoction works best for you.
