The PeapodMat is a unique combination of 3 layers that creates a super-absorbent breathable waterproof mat!
- TOP LAYER: Breathable terry cotton; grid stitched to prevent bunching
- MID LAYER: Polyester liner to absorb and disperse moisture
- UNDER LAYER: Brushed polyester to grip surfaces; coated with breathable TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) waterproofing. A greener/biodegradable product for the environment.

Quickly! The liquid will disperse amongst the top and middle layer so that the liquid doesn’t ‘pool’.
Lots! The PeapodMat will safely absorb more than 1 litre+/6 cups of liquid. That is more than the average adult will urinate (a healthy adult bladder can hold up to 16 ounces/2 cups of urine).
PeapodMats won’t leak but they do breathe! We made a conscious decision when designing PeapodMats that they be as BREATHABLE and green as possible. Because the TPU waterproof coating is a green solution to PVC, plastic or vinyl and is breathable, vapors can escape but not liquid. Urine is made of over 90% water and water is the only thing that evaporates from urine. Any waste products (EI salts and minerals) are left behind. Because the PeapodMat is breathable (BUT LEAK PROOF) the water from urine may evaporate. This means the sheets underneath may feel very cool to the touch (giving a damp feeling) and may even have a slight smell from the vapors. But in the time it takes you to wash your PeapodMat you will find that the sheets no longer have that cool damp feeling and any smell will have disappeared – leaving the sheets clean and dry with no need to launder. If you were to test the PeapodMat with a glass of water you will find that it doesn’t leak through.
Great question! It will really depend on a few things. The size of the person using it, how much they move around and what surface they are protecting.
3x3 PeapodMat: up to ages 3-4 yrs of age or for an adult with limited mobility. Please keep in mind that these are just recommendations, if your child is large for their age at 3-4, you may need to go a size higher. **Not recommended for bed size double or larger.**
3x5 PeapodMat: older children, 4 yrs and up, to adult. Can be laid horizontal for bed size double or larger.
Whichever PeapodMat size you choose we highly recommend that the PeapodMat be placed slightly under the pillow. In our ‘Tips Video’ https://youtu.be/Glq4djFAfeQ we show the best PeapodMat placement. Please visit our picture galleries (located in both the Kids and Adult tabs) for more clarification.
Yes! Please see the following images:
Yes! Launder with like colors and treat your PeapodMat like a big towel in your regular wash. NOT recommended is the REGULAR use of fabric softener, dryer sheets, dryer balls or regular use of vinegar or oxyclean. These products are known to reduce the quality of waterproofing. HOWEVER, vinegar or Oxyclean may be use once in awhile if you need to deodorize your PeapodMat.
Throw it back in! PeapodMats are designed for easy use therefore you aren’t required to do any additional steps for washing and drying.
Too much detergent! Just like regular towels that stiffen over time, it is usually because too much detergent has been used and the terry cotton has built up a soapy residue. Remember we also don't recommend the use of fabric softener as that will also do the same thing! Wash your PeapodMat with a cup of vinegar and/or baking soda, with a thorough rinse. That should work to make the terry cotton soft and fluffy once again (if the mat has alot of residue you may have to do this a couple of times)!
UH OH! There are some household products that contain benzoyl peroxide (found in many acne medications such as Clearasil for example) and/or household cleaners that contain Clorox or other chlorine-based bleach that most likely cause this issue. It could also be some errant spray. But, even if you’re careful and don't get the cleaner near fabrics, if washing cleaning rags with your towels (or other laundry), that could cause the problem. Also there are some scouring powders that can cause blotching. Products containing sodium hypochlorite or calcium hypochlorite can also definitely do that kind of damage. All these products may leave a left over residue in your washer. And some dyes are more susceptible to blotching if in contact with these products. Household towels are commonly affected the same way. Unfortunately if this happens, PeapodMats will not be able to warranty your mat.
Thanks for asking! We highly recommend that the PeapodMat be placed slightly under the pillow.
Not if you don’t want him to! However, we recommend that he wear both underwear and pj’s (vs one or the other). The male anatomy can be tricky and end up pointing in all directions in the middle of the night and it has been our experience that the waist band from both the underwear and pj’s ensures there isn’t a “spray” everywhere. Save your money on buying pull ups!
Sorry to hear that! If that was because of lack of breathability you won’t have to worry with PeapodMats. We pride ourselves on the fact that PeapodMats are breathable while still being leak proof!
You bet! Many of our customers have shared with us how they use their PeapodMats ‘beyond the bed’. Please check out the Kids tab to find out more!
Possibly! We are continually thinking of ways to be innovative with our products…while keeping in mind it has to be easy to use and easy to wash.
Absolutely! We’ve had a number of customers purchase PeapodMats for this exact reason. In fact we have a whole list of additional uses that customers have shared with us. Please check out the Adults tab to find out more!
No! We don’t recommend using PeapodMats for infants to sleep on, in a crib, or at any time unattended (along the same lines as crib bumpers). We recommend using the PeapodMat for babies for ‘nudey’ tummy time, changing mat, or bath mat (attended of course!).
