...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 56”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!

Its a Lifesaver, literally

We use our lifesaver mats for everything. Our favorite size is the XL, we pre ordered when Mo first announced it and we regret not getting more. We take it everywhere and we use it for practically for everything.

Beautiful and Practical

This mat is our go-to for sensory activities. The smooth side is great for sand (easy to wipe down) and the soft side is great for water (absorbs it all no problem). It is rather bulky when folded up, so I wouldn't suggest this as a compact travel blanket. However, I love to have it out around the house for impromptu picnics or other activities (and simply because I think the design is beautiful).

Amazing do-anything mat

The "water repellent" side isn't as repellent as I thought it would be, but the absorbent side absolutely does NOT leak through and that's the real win here. But honestly, this mat has become a go-to for so many things. Need an emergency bath mat? Done. Eating in the bed and don't want crumbs everywhere? Covered. Doing a messy activity that you don't want to end up on the floor? No problem. Worried about an "accident" during nap time? Not anymore! This thing has seemingly infinite uses and it performs exceptional across the board. Add to that the fact it's machine washable, and you can even tumble dry it, well this is an easy win.

So multipurpose

We have three XL mats and I definitely need another one or two. They’re so versatile!
This time of year I use them by the door when the kiddos are going in and out in the snow, so they don’t track wet snow all over my floor!
And I also put another one under my drying rack where I hang their wet snow gear to dry.

Love it!

Got the Lifesaver XL a couple weeks ago and absolutely love it! We use it for “adult fun” purposes and it’s seriously a lifesaver! It’s more absorbent than towels were & stays dry to the touch. I thought I was going to put it down beforehand but instead I’ve been using it after. I use it to dry off, then lay it over the wet spot and go right to sleep. Still washing my sheets & a mattress protector a lot doing it this way, but at least I can wait until morning and have a comfortable sleep this way. Thank you lil helper! Love the packaging as well!
