The best futon covers that will help your mattress last longer

A futon mattress cover will help protect your futon from getting any dirt, debris, or spills on the mattress itself. You have a choice in terms of types of futon cover. You may simply need a cover that you can throw over your futon and slip off when you no longer need it, which would be great for small get-togethers at your home.

Full futon covers are a great investment, but it’s a good idea to make a list of needs so you buy the right kind of covers for your home.
