No. We do not advise using a hot water bottle, electric blanket or heat pad with your memory foam mattress. Memory Foam is a heat sensitive material – that’s how it moulds to your body when you lie down on it, providing the ultimate in comfort and pressure relief. The additional heat from a hot water bottle can interfere with this process, compromising the performance of the memory foam and potentially causing permanent damage to the foam itself.
You Won’t Need a Hot Water Bottle Anyway…
You might notice that when you first lie down on your memory foam mattress – especially if your bedroom is quite chilly – it will feel very firm. Don’t worry, as soon as you lie down the foam will start reacting your body heat. Very quickly, your memory foam mattress will warm and soften.
From that point onward you should be perfectly toasty without a hot water bottle. Foam naturally holds heat very well because of its dense structure.
