Need Help! Good deal on pure latex bliss - Nature - or maybe not?

Hi cado212,

I would be very cautious here because you are probably looking at a mattress that was purchased as part of a liquidation lot for pennies on the dollar and the risk would be very high that you are buying a used mattress that was either a comfort return or a warranty return.

Restwell is a Spring Air and Comfort Solutions (King Koil) licensee in Vancouver that also makes their own line of mattresses but like any mattress, the name of the manufacturer isn’t nearly as important as knowing the specifics of all the layers and materials inside a mattress so you can identify any weak links and make more meaningful comparisons to other mattresses (see this article). I wouldn’t purchase any mattress without knowing this information. If the retailer can’t tell you then you may be able to find out the information you need from Restwell. I would also be very cautious about purchasing a liquidated and probably used mattress. There is more about buying a mattress from a liquidator here and here and here and more about some things you can check for if you are considering buying a used mattress in post #2 here as well.

While I don’t know the specifics of what is inside the mattress you are looking at … you could check the law tag to at least find out the type of materials it includes (listed by weight percentage rather than thickness percentage) to see what percentage was latex. It’s very possible that is contains “some” latex and then other types of materials as well. I would very much doubt that it could legitimately be called “organic”.

I would treat this or any mattress purchase where you may be buying a used mattress with no warranty and where you don’t know the type and quality of the materials inside it as a very high risk and “buyer beware” purchase.

Just in case you haven’t seen it yet … the better options and possibilities in and around the Seattle region (subject to the guidelines here) are listed in post #2 here.
