The bottom layer of the Lifesaver is lined with a waterproof material. That means that your bed, couch, or floor will stay dry as a bone and protected.

Absorbent & Stay-Dry

Hidden deep in the magical depths of this mat are layers of absorbency that will hide a shocking amount of liquid. Plus the naturally wicking charcoal topper will hide stains and keep everything feeling dry.

One Mat, SO MANY Uses

Intimacy Mat
Period Protection
Incontinence Support
Sweat Soaker
Sensory Play Mat

Mattress Protector
Potty Training Mat
...and more. 

You will find yourself reaching for this mat all the time. Whether you are feeling extra hot, or just like an extra hot-mess, the Lifesaver XL has you covered. Literally.


Size matters… 

Big mat = Big Potential

Sized at 57”x40” the Lifesaver XL takes all the awesome of its predecessor (the Lifesaver Original) to a bigger size and scale. That means MORE period protection properties, more mattress-saving potential, more coverage for sick kids or messy play, and more room for “extracurricular” bedroom activities 😉.

Nobody has time for “hand wash only.”

Easy to use, easy to take care of.

Make your mess and then pop it in the washing machine. The waterproof barrier is guaranteed to outlast 200 commercial launderings. Your rugged jeans (that you spent a whole afternoon picking out and that give you “internet-breaking” curves) will tear into rags after just 50 washes. And yes! It can go in the dryer too.

Newbie Guide

We recommend washing your Lifesaver XL on a heavy-duty warm cycle with a recommended commercially available detergent. Always line dry when you can, if not please tumble dry it on low! Any time you are dealing with super mega absorbent materials, we recommend avoiding any sort of fabric softener or dryer sheets that can coat the fabric and cause repelling.
Our new XL mats are a bit under 2x the size of our Lifesaver originals!
The design on these things is equal parts simple and genius! There is a waterproof backing that comes in our AH-MAZING prints. Paired with our comfy stay dry charcoal material you find in our beloved cloth diaper inserts. Our charcoal layer is a thirsty combination of naturally wicking material that will absorb a torrent of liquid and will still keep the surface feeling dry.
Of course they can! They are great for putting on your child's bed at night, or even laying over furniture during the beginning phases of potty learning! They are fast to absorb, so they can catch the biggest of accidents that your toddler may throw at them!
Our Lifesaver XL mats are a whopping 57” x 40” The perfect size for just about anything life throws at you!

My badass mermaids mat was purchased because of surgery I was going to be recovering from for many weeks. The first time the night sweats hit it was there to (Life)save my sheets 💕. ZERO gross tacky feeling, doesn't smell, no having to "avoid the wet spot" and washes like a dream. Also hella soft, and buying the larger size was PERFECT - full body coverage 😎
I wish I could give my past self 10 of these, it would've saved me years of resorting to old bath towels during my annual shark week 😩😩😩 I love everything about this sweet mat, please never stop making them. If I could give this a billion stars I would.

10/10 will buy again

I'd been seeing posts and ads for these lifesaver mats and purchased two. They're soft, no scent, machine washable and I don't have to worry about them leaking. They hold moisture beautifully! I use these religiously and cannot wait to buy more because they're going to be a staple in my house.

Kelly you are 10/10 and we are overjoyed that we can be a staple in your home!
It is a great thrill to hear from folks like you who use their lifesaver mats to make their lives easier. Thank you for your words and please know if you ever have any questions you can always reach out to - we love talking to our customers!

Great for dogs!

My 19 year old Beagle has started having some incontinence issues when sleeping, but LOVES to sleep on the bed with her brother while I work beside them. I bought the XL lifesaver mat and it truly is a lifesaver! No more stripping the bed down to the mattress every other day and she doesn’t “have” to wear a diaper to lay on the mat. Very grateful to have found this company and product. And Maggie is happy too!

Hey Kristen!
19!!! WOW! Maggie is the goodest girl, I can tell.
Thank you for the lovely photo, it put a big smile on my face knowing we can help Miss Maggie enjoy her retirement years in comfort and dignity.
With wagging tails and a happy heart,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper
