Question from Shannon

After Debra Lynn Dadd educated me to the flame retardants and toxic foam in my sofa I replaced it with a futon. I have a solid wood futon frame and wool mattress with an organic cotton cover. My only problem is that the mattress keeps slipping off.  Can you recommended a way to stop this? The Futon Shop has a product called futon stop slip. It is made of foam. Is this non toxic?

Lisa’s Answer

While the site doesn’t say what it is made of other than “foam” it is likely polyurethane foam which is not non-toxic.  I use a natural latex rug pad under my carpeting which might work and its not super expensive.  Check it out here.  I’d prefer that the latex was GOLS certified but I wasn’t able to find one with certification.
