Description

We are the original designer-makers of the earthing underlay and our Australian-made grounding underlays are the most advanced and durable worldwide. Our Better Earthing universal underlay is backed with a 3-Year warranty and will outlast every other brand of earthing sheet, earthing sleep system, grounding sheet, grounding mattress protector, or black carbon-coated earthing sleep mat available.

This underlay delivers big health benefits including improved sleep, reduced pain, and better circulation. See earthing benefits for more or read our 50+ customer reviews below plus 100+ reviews on our fitted version.

Better Earthing Fabric

Our Patented Antibacterial Grounding fabric is made with the highest quality medical grade (316L) solid stainless steel fibre (35%) and German-made Tencel with natural mineral antibacterial fibre (65%).

Fabric Feel & Appearance

The fabric comprises 35% stainless steel fibre by weight, and stainless steel fibre is around 5 times the weight of similar-sized cotton or Tencel fibres. This ensures that fabric with 35% of stainless steel by weight does NOT feel hard or metallic.

It feels soft like linen, breathes well, is strong yet supple, and will earth effectively for many years while sleeping directly on your favourite cotton or natural fibre sheets. It is also machine washable.

Comparison to Other Earthing Underlays

Unlike silver or carbon-based earthing sheets or earthing sleep mats, you don’t need to be concerned about damage from various ingredients in body creams, lotions, essential oils, magnesium oils, sulphur in heavy sweat, body and hair oil.

Better Earthing fabric underlays are far superior to black carbon-coated earthing sleep mats made from Polyurethane (marketed as Leatherette), and low 3-5% silver-coated fibre cotton sheets which are often white with a grey grid pattern.

Both styles are very low-cost Chinese-made products, using low-cost materials, with short limited warranties. We back our underlays with a 3-year warranty.

Many earthing products have only a 1-year manufacturer warranty that applies only to defects. Some makers say their products should last for years or a lifetime, but they only offer a short warranty.

Better Earthing Underlay Design

Better Earthing Sleep Systems are the world’s first earthing sheet that is designed to work through bed clothing and the fitted sheet you directly sleep on. NO direct skin contact is needed. The tiniest amount of body moisture or humidity in your clothes and sheets, compressed by your body weight, creates conductive channels that very effectively pass earth from your highly conductive Better Earthing Sleep System.

By not sleeping directly against your earthing undersheet, the fabric is protected from normal wear & tear, which makes it last longer.

Other earthing sheets are designed for direct contact with bare skin and use silver-coated fibre in 3-8% of their earthing fabric compared to 35% solid stainless steel fibre.

Please note if you have an allergy to nickel in stainless steel or to 9 or 14-carat gold, then avoid direct skin contact. This product is designed as an underlay so no skin contact is needed.

What’s in the box

Sold as a complete system with a straight lead, and AU/NZ Better Earthing adapter for earthing indoors.

If you would prefer a coiled lead, just leave a note when you order. For orders outside of Australia / NZ, we include an adapter to suit your country i.e. Type B (Japan, Thailand, USA etc), Type F (Indonesia) or Type G (HK, Singapore, Malaysia).

Additional information

Dimensions

The conductive fabric is: 90cm (35 inch) wide, or 140cm (55 inch) wide and 200cm (78 inches) long.

Includes

Better Earthing Universal Underlay, Better Earthing Adapter, Better Earthing Straight Lead(if you prefer a coiled lead please leave a note in the checkout), Product Guide, Set-Up Guide.

Fabric Appearance

This fabric is light grey and breathable and soft like linen. It is designed as an underlay, for use with your favourite sheets (cotton or any natural fibre).

Washing Frequency

Machine wash with warm to hot water to help remove body oils. We suggest presoaking beforehand in an Oxidiser soaker. This helps prevent the build-up of body oils, which act as a barrier to good conductivity and can reduce earthing strength until washed out. Oxidising soakers will not damage this fabric as our Stainless Steel fibre will not oxidise. Do not use Bleach as it will degrade the antibacterial fibre and over time will reduce its effectiveness.

Washing Instructions

Every 3-6 months.

Drying Instructions

Line dry in the sun or shade. Final drying in a tumble-dryer on low is okay. Do not dry clean.

Stainless steel & nickle

Please note if you have an allergy to nickel in stainless steel or to 9 or 14-carat gold, then avoid direct skin contact. Note this product is designed as an underlay and no skin contact is required.

Mattress Size

Universals securely fit most, but not all mattress sizes, when fitted LENGTHWAYS. IF fitted SIDEWAYS, across the mattress, they will fit ALL size mattresses.

For a secure fit, the Universal should be positioned at least 5-10cm from the edge of the mattress (see pictures) so the elastic straps do not slip off the edge.

So for fitting your Universal LENGTHWAYS, ensure your mattress is at least 15cm wider than the Universal. If you place the Universal SIDEWAYS (across the mattress width) the Universal will fit any size mattress.

For example, most SINGLE mattresses are too narrow for the Universal to fit securely LENGTHWAYS, and we have a choice for 4 single bed sizes for a better lengthways fit fitted underlay sizes). The universal will fit securely just fine across the width of any single mattress over 88cm wide.

The 140cm wide Universal fits securely on Queen and King size mattresses. For a 138cm wide Double mattress, the 140cm Uni is too wide to fit LENGTHWAYS but will fit securely SIDEWAYS for two people. A double mattress is 188cm in length.

If positioning the universal sideways across your mattress, the ideal position is under your torso (shoulders to hips) so that your full body weight goes onto the underlay sheet. Then lay your favourite natural fibre fitted sheet on top

EXTRA SECURING TO THE MATTRESS IF NEEDED. If your universal flat sheet needs extra securing to a mattress, it has 3 sewn in tie-down slots (like button holes) on each side. Light weight elastic can be placed through the slots and under the mattress, to hold the sides more securely if needed.

Warranty

Better Earthing Underlays (fitted or universal) made with stainless steel come with a 3-Year repair or replace Warranty against manufacturing defects and to earth effectively when used as an underlay in accordance with the set up and care instructions.

Also, see our guarantees including our 1-Year Satisfaction Guarantee.

Indoor Earthing Explained

This Better Earthing Sleep System comes with a special adapter plug and lead designed for earthing indoors.

All Australian and New Zealand power points have a third ‘earth’ pin (at the bottom) that is wired to a metal rod or plate buried in the ground. This safety mechanism is called grounding – it’s there to send excess electricity back into the ground (earth). Indoor Earthing products use ground wiring in your home to safely pass free electrons from the earth to your indoor earthing product, then to you.

No electricity is used. You can earth with the power point turned off. The top two prongs of Better Earthing adapter are plastic, instead of metal like a normal plug, so no a/c current from your electricity mains can pass through.

For added safety, Better Earthing leads have a 50,000 ohm safety resistor, plus fine wires inside like fuse-wire. This protects against the very rare event of a power surge via a building’s earth wiring. If the nearby ground were struck with lighting, barely a mosquito bite of electricity could pass through this resistor.

Better Earthing adapter and lead conduct earth’s energy only. This is a safe and easy way to receive the earth’s health-enhancing free electrons from the comfort of your home.

You can use an autorange multimeter (sold separately) to verify that your products are correctly Earthed via the power point. Compare the amount of electrical voltage carried in your body when you are not earthed, compared to when you are earthed. You’ll be amazed by how much excess AC electricity your body can pick up from surrounding electrical cables and devices and how much it dissipates (reduces) when earthed.

There is also an optional outdoor earthing rod and 15m lead if you don’t wish to earth via the indoor earthed wall socket.

FAQs

How do I know if my earthing universal underlay is working?

The best way to make sure your earthing universal underlay is working correctly is by using an autorange multimeter, that can be purchased in our online shop. With your order, you’ll get our comprehensive guide and our custom extension cord to test your earthing universal underlay. For more information, please feel free to contact us.

I’ve noticed a tingling feeling while earthing. Is that normal?

Experiencing tingling and warmth is a positive sign that your circulation is improving. It’s quite common for people to feel these sensations when they begin using Better Earthing universal underlay. These signs suggest that the earthing process is effectively increasing blood flow and promoting better overall circulation.

I can see two connection points on my earthing universal underlay. Do I need two leads?

No, you don’t need two leads. Better Earthing universal underlays are designed with two connection points for your convenience. This allows you to connect to the wall outlet easily, whether it is located on the left or right side of your bed. Having two connection points makes it simple to set up your earthing universal underlay in any room configuration.

Which type of sheet is best to use on top of the Better Earthing universal underlay?

For optimal grounding, we recommend using 100% cotton sheets with your Better Earthing universal underlay. However, other natural fabric sheets, such as Flannelette, Linen, Silk, Lyocell/Tencel, or Wool, are also excellent choices as they provide effective grounding and durability.
While bamboo lyocell blend sheets are acceptable for earthing, bamboo viscose sheets are less effective and not as strong. It’s best to avoid polyester blends and bamboo (viscose) sheets because they do not conduct earth as well. Synthetic and semi-synthetic materials do not retain moisture as efficiently as cotton.
Moisture in the fabric is crucial for creating tiny conductive channels that allow the earth’s free electrons to travel through. This moisture comes from the humidity in the air and from our bodies, which naturally emit some moisture even without sweating. Using the right type of sheet makes sure these channels remain open, maximising the benefits of your earthing universal underlay.

Do I need to have bare skin contact for Better Earthing products to work?

No, you don’t need to have bare skin contact for our Better Earthing universal underlay for them to work. Our earthing universal underlays are designed to work through clothing. Even the slightest body moisture or humidity in your socks, clothes, or sheets creates conductive channels that efficiently transfer the earth’s energy from your Better Earthing product to you.
Unlike most other earthing sheet underlays that require direct skin contact and use a low percentage of conductive material (3-8% silver-coated fibre), our custom-made earthing fabric contains around 35% highest quality medical-grade (316L) solid stainless steel fibre. You can see the conductive metal with a strong magnifying glass. Additionally, our Tencel fabric is certified as antibacterial and is highly hygienic.

Can I use an electric blanket with my earthing universal underlay?

Yes, you can use an electric blanket with your Better Earthing universal underlay. In fact, it can be beneficial, as earthing helps shield the body from AC electrical fields. Using a multimeter, you can observe an increase in body voltage when you sit on an electric blanket, but earthing effectively brings those volts down.
We recommend placing your earthing universal underlay on top of the electric blanket, with your regular cotton sheet as the top layer. The earthing strength may be slightly reduced for the first 30 minutes due to the electric blanket drying out the cotton sheets. However, once you get into bed, the slight moisture from your body will rehydrate the cotton sheets, usually within 30 minutes. This moisture creates tiny conductive channels, allowing free electrons to travel through effectively.

Will creams, lotions, oils, or heavy sweat and body oil damage your universal underlay?

No, as we use medical grade stainless steel fibres that are not damaged or oxidised by these. Many lotions, body oil and our sweat (which always contains sulphur) is a huge problem for earthing sheets using a low 3 to 10% silver coated fibre. Even sheets with a high % of silver can be damaged easily where the silver coating is thin and cheap and not coated with a good anti oxidising agent.

Washing detergents that contain bleach can also quickly oxidise silver and stop those sheets from earthing.

To understand how robust your earthing sheet is, always look at the warranty period and limitations, especially around conductivity and oxidisation. Black carbon coated Polyurethane products also have shorter warranties, and for good reasons.

I have to say, this is one of the best customer experiences I’ve had in a long time.

3 years ago I purchased the underlay sheet, and have my wife and I have been sleeping extremely well since. A month ago, I did notice that the sheet was deteriorating a little, and after 3 years of proper use, it’s no wonder. One of the reasons I went with Better Earthing was their warranty for repair and replacement. So I reached out to the guys, along with the photos, and was so happy to receive an email in my inbox a day later saying, that’s no problem at all! You are fully covered under our warranty, so we will send you an updated model of the same underlay sheet. I think you’re going to like how easy this one is to install onto the mattress.

Straight away, I was blown away by the positive experience, and said to myself that I need to share this with the world, so that more people can support such a genuine business.

If you are browsing around and thinking about purchasing earthing products and looking at which company to go with, you’ve found the one right here. Their products are excellent and is backed up by their 6-star customer service.

Better Earthing comes highly recommended!

Thank you guys 🙂

I have received my delivery and the sheet is already on the bed! I can’t wait to go to bed tonight. My cat has already spent all day on the bed…maybe she intuits something beneficial for her.

Thank you for not only promptly delivering my new earthing experience (and the earthing band kit) but also the excellent communication – I really appreciate your keeping me informed every step of the way.

We are very pleased to take a minute and share with you our wonderful results we are attributing to our earthing sheet.

We are a couple in our 40’s and 50’s and are both feeling an improvement with much lower stress levels, and less anxiety in the case of my husband.

Our wow breakthrough was when I recently realised I hadn’t noticed my husband having any sleep apnea episodes for the last few weeks.

This is very exciting and we are both eager to observe improvemnets from him enjoying uninterrupted sleep over the coming months.

In the same period as introducing the earthing sheet my husband has moved to join me on a gluten free diet which we also feel is a contributing factor.

It was very easy to purchase from your Australian website and we love the offer of follow up support.

WOW!!! Feeling great! I’ve been told I look 10 years younger than my 82yrs, and now I feel like a spring chicken! Have more energy, am accomplishing more and no aches and pains.

For months I have had weekly acupuncture for knee and shoulder; (they will be wondering where I am). My hands which have been my greatest asset all my life (as an artist) don’t have any niggles and three toes which felt numb (ish) feel normal once more.

Initially I experienced disturbed sleep patterns, feeling of heaviness, dreams, but now sleeping well and wake feeling refreshed and energetic. Keen to go to exercises each day and working with more enthusiasm. I intend to burn out not rust out!

I am spreading the word about your wonderful earthing products.

Thank you so much for the relief the underlay has given me.

I have suffered severe insomnia for 20 years. Restless leg syndrome can keep me awake for hours, even all night. (I have exhausted every avenue to remedy this without success.) Switching off my mind is difficult, too. There is also the matter of 18 years of disruptive hot flushes, as well as other irritating health issues. In order to be able to work, I spent 10 years during this time taking sleeping tablets 3-4 times a week and feeling like complete rubbish the next the day. Since 2003 my bed had become my battleground and I dreaded the nights of shallow, disruptive, exhausting sleep.

When a friend suggested the Better Earthing (BE) sheet, I was not overly convinced but anything was worth a shot. I’ve now been sleeping on it for five weeks and the difference in the quality of my sleep is profound.

The first night, I dropped off immediately and experienced the strangeness of sleeping so deeply I was a bit disoriented when I woke up, totally alert and having no memory of the night. Later that morning I was out shopping and wondered why I felt as if I had taken pain relief tablets. Then it struck me – I no longer felt “jagged”, as my whole body was naturally rested and relaxed for the first time in two decades!

Over the following five weeks, I had a few bad nights, unable to switch off my mind, but I do always get to sleep and I always sleep deeply. Not only that but I still feel more relaxed and alert than I have the last 20 years. Incredibly, I have not had any instances of restless leg syndrome during this time (which may have been caused by an electrical disturbance in my body). The BE sheet is not a magic blanket, as it is still important to do my part (such as not getting intensively focused on something, or eating and drinking foods that disrupt the body before bedtime). But having moved from a sleep pattern that skipped across the surface into that of a deep sleep has meant I no longer respond and wake with every disturbance.

If my average sleep rated as 4.5 out of 10 before using the BE sheet, it now rates 8.5 out of 10. Not only that but that 8.5 is quality sleep so I no longer feel sluggish during the day even if I do lose some hours.

Interestingly, I ordered a queen size BE sheet and gave my (test run) single BE sheet to a friend the day before it arrived. And on that one night, I could not get off to sleep for five hours and all my sleep disruptions returned. (More proof the technology does work.) My friend suffers inflammatory pain and numbness and can’t sleep. The first night on the BE sheet she felt tingling; the second night she broke out in pools of perspiration. It’s been a week now and she believes she is detoxing, as her sleep is now starting to improve.

The old-fashioned, personal quality of service from the BE team is also appreciated and helpful. I am passing this information on to others, because insomnia is a debilitating condition that wrecks a person’s quality of life. I feel so blessed that a friend recommended Better Earthing to me.

I don’t usually give reviews but feel this one is deserved. My package was wrapped in tissue paper and a bow. What a special touch.

I had an enquiry and a very nice gentleman rang me pronto. Couldn’t wait to jump into my bed to sleep the very first night and slept better and my stiff back was better.

Looking forward to each night from now on because until now haven’t slept well.

Many thanks

I’d like to say a big thank you for your prompt, professional service and for providing such a tremendous product which I’m sure will help many with their health conditions. I was very impressed with how quickly my underlay arrived and how easily I could attach it to my mattress. I’ve only used it for a couple of nights, but can already feel a difference. My sleep is very deep and free from aches and pains, and I think it may have had a positive effect on my snoring as well! I also purchased the book, which I am reading with interest. I have often wondered why we have so many health ailments these days, and I really think we now have the answer. I will be recommending your product to my friends and family.

Keep up the great work!

Cheers
