Q. Tell me more about the Sleepy Panda mattress.
A. The Sleepy Panda mattress combines a 5-zone pocket spring system with memory foam to provide you with restful sleep, every night. Manufactured along with hypo-allergenic 100% natural latex, and gel memory foam, it not only comes with a 10-year warranty, but we’ll also provide a 100-night free trial, to let you experience why Sleepy Panda helps make your dreams happen.
Q. Why have you only got one mattress type in different sizes?
A. We conducted extensive research in collaboration with sleep experts before designing the mattress. The pocket spring design has the perfect combination of comfort level, durability and ease of maintenance. We figured when you’re on to a good thing, stick to it. We do offer our mattresses in different sizes to suit different people’s needs, though.
Q. Do you have a showroom for me to try the mattress?
A. In order to give you a great mattress at a fair price, we recommend you try the Sleepy Panda mattress in the comfort of your own home, and we’ll give you 100 nights to decide whether you like the mattress or not. If you’re still not satisfied, we’ll take it back! We’ll arrange for a pickup from your doorstep, and you’ll get a 100% refund.
Q. Does it move every time someone rolls over?
A. Ah, you’re talking about partner disturbance. The Sleepy Panda mattress is way ahead of other mattresses in this department. Our unique 5-zone pocket spring system and gel memory foam ensure that when your partner moves, you don’t feel anything.
Q. Will I get hot when I sleep?
A. Australian summers can be pretty warm. To make sure your night is as comfortable and cool as it can be, each spring in our mattress is individually sewn into a material pocket. This allows air to move freely throughout the mattress, keeping you cool. Our gel memory foam is made in a special way too –gel beads are infused into the memory foam, which improves breathability.
Q. Will my Sleepy Panda form a dip like my other mattress?
A. A Sleepy Panda mattress will never form a dip like other mattresses. To sort any such problems and to ensure your peace of mind, we offer a 10-year warranty.

Q. Can I roll it up like an airbed?
A. The intended use of the Sleepy Panda mattress is as a permanent mattress. As soon as it has been taken out of the box, it won’t fit back in, which means it can’t be rolled up like an airbed either. If you don’t want to use the Sleepy Panda mattress as a permanent mattress, we recommend you use it in a guest room. It must be kept opened once it has been unpacked.
Q. Where are Sleepy Panda mattresses shipped from?
A. For customers in Australia, Sleepy Panda mattresses are shipped from facilities in Sydney.
Q. Once I take the mattress out of the box, how long does it take until I can sleep on it?
A. Even though your mattress will be ready within a few minutes, we recommend letting your mattress settle for about 30 minutes, to let it decompress to its natural position.
Q. Is sleepy panda mattress chemical and fire retardant free?
A. Yes, Sleepy Panda mattress is 100% chemical and fire retardant free.
Q.What does the warranty cover?
A. Sleepy Panda offers you a full 10-year warranty on any new mattress that you purchase from us. Please note that the warranty on any Sleepy Panda mattress is not transferable and applies only to the original purchaser of the product.
Our warranty covers:
- Any visible depression deeper than 5 cm from the surface of the mattress. This refers to an indentation that is visible when no weight is applied to the top of the mattress.
- Please note that depressions less than or equal to 5 cm from the surface are normal, and are formed as the memory foam conforms to your body shape.
- Any defect that causes the foam or the seams to crack or split open. Please note that deformities in the foam caused by mishandling are not covered by the warranty. Also, Sleepy Panda assumes that the mattress will always be used on a flat surface capable of withstanding the weight of the mattress and the users.
- Any tear in the fabric or unravelling of any of the stitches on the mattress.
Q. How do I make a claim if I think my Sleepy Panda mattress might be defective?
A. First of all, are you the original purchaser? Any claim does need to come from the person who originally bought the mattress. Here’s what the original purchaser needs to do. 1) Send a brief written description (and photo, if possible) of the problem or condition that they believe constitutes a defect. 2) Send proof of purchase (such as the order number or an original dated sales receipt) to Sleepy Panda at email@example.com. We’ll sort you out.
Q. What if the foam forms irregular indentation and is getting body impressions?
A. Memory foam does form body impressions after you sleep on it for a few nights. This is perfectly normal, and ensures that the foam offers optimum support to your body. Unless the impressions have a depth of more than 5 cm from the surface of the mattress, there is no cause for worry.
Q. Why is your warranty only for 10 years?
A. At Sleepy Panda, we are confident that our mattresses will provide you with a good night’s sleep for many years to come. However, just to make sure you are covered against any accidental defects that might occur in one of our mattresses, we offer you the 10-year warranty. If a mattress does not cause any problem for as long as 10 whole years, you can rest assured that it will continue to serve you reliably for many more years after that.

Q. How do I clean my mattress?
A. Cleaning a mattress? Easy, we've got you covered. It’s a piece of cake and here’s your recipe.
- Vacuum. If you’re anything like us there could well be late night cookie crumbs, pet hair and even dust accumulated over your mattress.
- Stain removal. If you’ve got any funny looking patches on the mattress (we’re not judging- bed sweats are a real thing), we recommend a spot clean. We like a mixture of lemon juice and salt, lightly rub it into the affected area and leave it so sit for 30-60 minutes. After this, wipe it all off with a clean cloth.
- Deodorizing. Even if the bed doesn’t smell funky at this point, it’s best to treat any underlying aromas you can’t smell just yet. We recommend sprinkling some good old baking soda over the entire mattress. Rub it in with a brush so it gets right up in there where the funk lives. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes - the longer the better. If the stain persists, look into something stronger- your local grocery store will have some non-toxic natural cleaners.
- Vacuuming. Yes vacuuming again, but this time it’s to draw out all the moisture and odours that’s bound with the baking soda you’ve just put on.
- Yay you’re done. Time to celebrate with a wine- don’t worry you know how to clean it if you spill it in bed.
Q. How long does a mattress last?
A. Most mattresses last 8-10 years. However a mattress can expire well beforehand, so if you’re waking up achy, or your mattress feels lumpy- it’s time for a change so you wake up refreshed and on the way to your dreams.
Q. How often should you change your mattress?
A. As most mattresses last 8-10 years, changing your mattress during those years is best to enjoy an easy and energising sleep. This is why we love our 10-year warranty, so you’ll get the best sleep today and in 10 years time.
Q. How to choose and buy a mattress
A. Thinking about how to choose a mattress or how to buy a mattress? Let us help. Here are some things to consider before you make the final decision.
- How much room do you need? E.g. do you or your partner toss around? - In that case go for queen instead of a double.
- What size mattress can the room accommodate? Whilst it would be awesome to have a room that’s just a soft plushy mattress, we’ve got to be stylish too. Look into how you want to lay out your furniture, and see how it would fit around your bed. That can help with determining the right size.
- What support does it offer? If your body needs support in different places, our 5 zone pocket springs will tailor their support to the areas where your body needs it the most.
- Take up trial offers. We’re so confident in our mattress, that we’re offering a 100 night trial of our mattress to see if it’s right for you. Then, if you’re still not happy after 100 nights, we’ll come pick it up and refund your money. Click here to see our 100 night trial offer.
Q. What is the best mattress?
A. The one that leaves you energised and ready to achieve your dreams. This includes the firmness of the bed. Have sore back problems? Look into a firmer bed. Ours have been formulated to be medium-hard providing the optimal support and comfort that most people require. Allergies? A 100% natural latex layer won’t risk upsetting any allergies. That’s why we love our mattress for ourselves and any friends and family that stay over. Plus natural latex retains original firmness leaving you with the same comfort from night 1 and in 10 years time.
Q. Where to buy a mattress?
A. Why from the comfort of your own bed of course, and very soon your own Sleepy Panda bed, as our online orders are processed within 24 hours. We offer free shipping on all mattresses so you can try the mattress in your own home.
Q. How to get blood out of a mattress?
A. Yes, this is quite the common question. If you’re battling with a bloodstain, make a paste of 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, 1 tablespoon of salt and quarter cup of hydrogen peroxide. Apply paste to the stain and let it dry. Remove leftover dried paste with dry cloth.
Q. How to get pee out of a mattress?
A. Last, but not least, for pee stains, whip out some distilled white vinegar and apply to affected area. We recommend a spray bottle. Let the vinegar sit for 5-10 minutes, then soak up the leftover vinegar with a dry rag or paper towels.
