Whether you are potty training a toddler, dealing with a sick child, or caring for an elderly relative, a waterproof mattress pad can come in handy. But they are quite expensive and not always that effective, which is why I like this tutorial for Making your Own Waterproof Mattress Pad Cover by Lindsey at So Easy Being Green. Lindsey says you could easily make this waterproof mattress cover with upcycled materials. She used flannel sheets, a vinyl tablecloth, and and fleece to make a waterproof mattress cover. You can find directions and tips for the DIY Mattress Pad here.
