Bumble Bee Latex mattresses are always made of high quality latex core from Getha, a 100% natural Malaysian latex provider. Recently, there is an article on Star newspaper dated 18 January 09, featuring all the benefits of sleeping on a natural latex mattress or pillow by Getha. A very big applause to our proud provider!

Here are some of the excerpts of the article, which we think the information is important for all the consumers to be aware of.

Getha’s usage of 100% natural Malaysian latex offers a completely harmless sleeping experience.

As natural latex has an elastic property, it is resilient yet gentle, firm yet breathable. It is so flexible that it allows 360-degree even weight distribution. The ability of natural latex to gently support and conform to your body also alleviates pressure points and dramtically reduces tossing and turning. The interconnecting cell structure provides a natural ventilation system that allows heat and body moisure to dissipate, thus ensuring a healthy restful sleep in comfort.

Given that Getha mattress are free from chemical additives, this could render them attached with a creamy latex scent when new. Though so, the aroma is only natural, even therapeutic in stimulating your immune system and enhancing your breathing.

Yes, some consumers may aware of that creamy latex scent when just bought Bumble Bee Latex mattresses or pillows. Be rest assured that, the existence of this aroma only indicates that our latex mattresses and pillows are really natural and contain no chemicals at all!

  1. I just bought a Bumble Bee latex mattress.
    May I know whether I need to wash it before use?
    How if i use something like Febreze to spray on it first and air dry it?

    Hi Chong

    The Bumble Bee latex mattress can be immediately used upon purchased. It had gone through hygienic washing and thorough drying in its process of manufacturing till the finished product.

    Therefore there is no need to wash it before use, and this is not recommended to be done at home since households do not have the proper facilities to properly dry it after washing. Improper drying can lead to growth of mold and mildew. Kindly be sure to cover the latex mattress with a bedsheet cover and change it regularly.

    Hope this helps.


  2. Hi, I would like to ask, if I have not been using the playpen latex matress for a long time but now I need to use it for my newborn baby, do I need to clean the matress first? Or perhaps air the matress under the sun?

    you may wash it if you wish, however it will take some time to dry completely due to its latex nature. You may put in under the fan to dry it. Note that you cannot put in directly under the sun as the heat will harden and spoil the mattress.

    Hi admin,

    You mean I can wash the latex with soup? It wouldn’t damage the latex mattress? Actually my biggest concern would be dust mites or bed mites on the mattress. Do you think if I were to use a vacuum cleaner would it help ?
    Appreciate & thanks for your advise

    hi Jacque, no soap. Please use plain water only to wash the mattress. If the surface is really dirty and you really have to use it, please use a very mild one and dilute it before use. Don’t worry about dust bites or bed mites, as they cannot live in latex nature.

    You may also do spot cleaning on the dirty spots, use water to drain over it, and then leave it to air dry for a day or so. Playpen mattress is quite thin so it shouldn’t take too long to dry.

    hope this helps.

  3. Hi,
    I’ve bought the latex mattress 1-2 years ago and is still under warranty. I’ve kept it wrapped in plastic bag in a storage. I took it out recently and realize the cloth wrapping the mattress has yellow spots/stains on it and I’m very sure that its clean when I put it away. Can I wash it as I’ll be using it for my newborn baby?

    Or if I change the cloth, is the mattress still under warranty?
