My husband and I have needed to replace our 15-year-old queen-sized mattress for several years now. However, the prices on natural mattresses are out of our price range. When our current mattress was new, we were unable to sleep on it for two weeks due to the chemical outgassing. This odor caused severe headaches and nausea. So this time around we wanted to purchase a mattress made from organic materials. However, we have been unable to find an affordable natural mattress. The prices are over the top. Are there any "standard" mattresses that are preferable over others as far as being chemically treated? I understand that even more chemicals are now used in mattress manufacturing than were used back when our current mattress was purchased, so I am doubly concerned. Any advice on the best possible solution would be much appreciated!
