Jessica: Hi, I’m Jessica for Campus & Beyond from Bed Bath & Beyond with tips on how to make your bed better. Nicole has just moved into her room and she’s not very happy about this bed.
Nicole: Yeah this mattress is terrible, ooh.
Jessica: Yeah and other people have slept on it before.
Nicole: Ooh gross. I hadn’t even thought of that.
Jessica: But I know the solution. I got totally grossed out too but Bed Bath & Beyond hooked me up with a mattress protector. This protector encases the matchers creating a barrier between you and the bed. And it keeps out dus I t mites and bedbugs.
Nicole: Ooh, I don’t want any of those.
Jessica: Now let’s talk comfort. On top of this protector we added a foam mattress topper. It’s soft, it gives support and I have one too. It is so comfortable.
Nicole: Yeah I can tell. It’s awesome.
Jessica: Another option is a fiber bed which has a slightly different feel, more squishy.
Nicole: Yeah you’re right. But I kind of like them both together.
Jessica: Nice sheets.
Nicole: Thanks. I had to get these sheets called twin XL. I never even heard of them before.
Jessica: Yeah. Well a lot of colleges have extra long mattresses.
Nicole: Yeah. But I mean the nice thing was that I got to buy a new pair of sheets.
Jessica: And feel them, they’re so comfy.
Jessica: Ooh they’re so nice.
Nicole: You know Bed Bath & Beyond has a ton of twin XL sheets to choose from so you can get the style and color you want.
Jessica: Nicole I love your comforter. It’s so quirky and fun and colorful. And these pillows are so cool.
Nicole: I know right. Thanks.
Jessica: You’re welcome. Did you get a body pillow?
Nicole: I did and it’s so comfortable.
Jessica: I know. It provides a lot of support when you lean against a wall.
Nicole: Right. And I figured why not incorporate my own style into it.
Nicole: I mean this is the centerpiece of my room and all.
Jessica: Exactly. And plus this is where you’re going to study and where your friends are going to hang out.
Jessica: So that’s how you make your bed better.
