There are many memory foam buyers guide available for you to know if you will benefit from purchasing memory foam and you will have probably seen many questions that crop up when consumers want to purchase memory foam mattress topper or memory foam mattress pad, though this may come of a surprise many have questioned the smell of memory foam.

Like all things, memory foam may not be right for you and a few consumers have mentioned getting headaches from the smell of memory foam. Though memory foam does not release any toxic chemicals that can harm you, you could find yourself thinking something smells.

I often find this with many materials I buy that it can have a distinguished smell and the smell of memory foam should not affect you long term, but again this can vary from person to person and their sensitivity to certain smells.

When you purchase your memory foam mattress or pillow and so on, the best thing you can do is give it a good airing before using it and do not apply any covering to it before it has been aired. This in most cases will remove the smell that can be irritating for some consumers.

The smell of memory foam should disappear within a few weeks or so, but if you are finding that it is not disappearing as fast as you would like and it is bothering you to an extent that you are considering returning your memory foam purchase, then contact your retailer to ask them for some advice.

More tips for choosing the right memory foam pad or topper:

Basically, there are only 3 things you need to focus to get the perfect memory foam product that will provide you years of restful nights – memory foam layer thickness, sensitivity of the material to temperature and density.

1. Your memory foam products must have enough top layers. This is a very important point to consider, because getting a product that has the less amount of memory foam at the top will put you at risk of having an uneasy night. It is best to choose a product with enough memory foam on the uppermost layer, which is somewhere around 3.5 inches.

2. Be sure to select a memory foam product that is temperature-sensitive. This feature is one of the most crucial, as it is what makes the memory foam unique and comfortable. Not all memory foam products available in the market are temperature sensitive. Temperature-sensitivity is also what allows the foam to absorb body heat and relieve pressure from our back and shoulders during our sleep.

3. Select memory foam product with the right density. Density can be described as the product weight measured in one cubic foot of foam. There are differing points of view circulating as to which is the best density to select. On average all customer claims, it would be best to choose memory foam products with density of around 5-6lbs.

Selecting the memory foam that’s just right for you is possibly one of the most important choices you will have to make in your lifetime, hopefully these tips will relieve your anxiety about the decision you are about to make.
