"Banana" Mattress Storage Bags
Spend more for something that actually works
If you're looking for very short term mattress storage and want something cheap, buy this (and go a size up!). If you need something that will fit and really protect your mattress in storage, spend more money and get something that actually protects your mattress. We bought the 2 pack of the "Jumbo" storage bags for our full mattress and box spring to store them temporarily in our garage. To start, one of them already had a hole in it when we opened it up, and when we tried to put the other on it was clearly too small and wouldn't fit without tearing. Our mattress is regular depth (no pillow top or anything) and I measured ahead of time, so something clearly isn't right with the description. I knew it wouldn't be top quality with the cheap price, but I didn't expect the size to be SO off.
I give props to the Container Store for great customer service though, because they refunded my online order over the phone without hesitation!

Bags are not just for mattresses!
Excellent product, well worth the 5 or 6 dollar price.
Don't know why anyone would think they would be reusable after a move. . . Really?
Have bought a couple of the twin size packs (3 bags/pkg) to provide dust-free storage for baby swings, high chairs, etc.
Definitely buy a size up if you have one of those super deep mattresses.
MOVING TIP: Wrap duct tape completely around the short side of the mattress. Make a carry/grab strap out of duct tape and secure it to the duct tape you wrapped around the mattress. Repeat as needed.

Very bad product
The plastic is very thin, tears while placing it on the mattress, does not have any kind of seal or closing zipper, completely useless

Square peg in round hole or vice versa
I purchased these mattress covers to hold two double bed mattresses and box springs.
They were extremely small and tore when I put them on. It also took two of us to get them on because of their small size.
The queen size would better fit the double and the king for the queen, I imagine. Don't know what I would do about the King.
