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!

Love the vibrant patterns. The menstrual products are super comfortable and give me all the protection I need, so I got the mat. Can't wait to test it out


GAME CHANGER! I got the XL mat for my menstrual cycle, as an on the go emergency towel. This has a million different uses. It is so soft on the one side and the other is waterproof and also made of a nice comfy material. PASSED THE LEAK TEST! No stains left on my sheets or mattress!

Hi K!
We are going to go out for ice cream cones later today to celebrate passing the leak test! (We do this every time, we REALLY love ice cream.)
Whether it be menstruation, intimacy, incontinence, or even a picnic blanket, the XL truly has a million uses. Actually, we will probably take one to eat our celebratory ice cream on!
Please reach out if you ever have questions or concerns.
Enjoy those clean sheets,
With joy and ice cream,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

Extra Messy Activities

I previously purchased the Original Mat for playtime with my partner, but found that there was a limit to the amount of fluid that it holds and we reached that limit (my partner is very generous in the bedroom and is rather competitive and an overachiever in many ways, so don't think the Original Mat is inferior in anyway; my partner just doesn't know when to quit sometimes 🤣). So I made the decision to upgrade to the XL Mat and my only regret is not buying this one first! All the fun without a sopping wet mess. This is 100% worth the investment for adult activities.
And so easy to wash and dry (though I dry mine on a low heat and run it through the dryer twice to protect the backing).

Hi Sarah,
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on our Lifesavers! We love to hear from folks who have found a great use for our Lifesavers in their lives, generous overachievers and all! While we never expected this, it is a joy to know we can help make intimate moments more comfortable and easy to clean up. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
With gratitude,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

One month review

I bought this about a month ago and purposely waited to write my review so I could give it some time and really try it out first.

It has been so great! I’m so glad I got this mat. I sleep on it every night and I have no complaints. It’s the perfect size and it really does keep me cooler while I’m sleeping. It’s really easy to clean, too, which I really appreciate.

If you’re on the fence about buying this mat, like I was, I’m saying you should buy one!

Hi Kim!
We are so grateful that you took the time to not only try our Lifesaver Mat and write a review but really put the thought and care behind sharing your thoughts like you did. That is so helpful not only to us but to other folks looking for a night time solution that is tried and tested.
And I hope you know you can always email us at with suggestions, questions, and concerns. We are ready to listen!
With joyful hearts,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper
