Better Earthing Patented Fabric & Naturally Antibacterial
This custom-made earthing fabric is made with the highest quality medical grade (316L) solid stainless steel filament (20%), German Made Antibacterial Mineral Fibre (10%), and sustainably produced Lyocell/Tencel from FSC Certified forests (70%). It is permanently antibacterial (certified) and will prevent bacteria and odours from occurring within the fabric throughout its lifespan. Many fabrics are not permanently antibacterial and only have a solution added which washes out quickly.
Fabric Feel & Appearance
This premium earthing fabric is light grey in colour, with a natural crinkle due to the long and highly robust medical grade stainless steel filaments. This filament is much more conductive than more commonly used stainless fibres. The fabric feels like strong cotton or linen fabric, and you can earth effectively for many years while sleeping on your favourite regular cotton etc sheets. We can give a 5-year warranty, and logically it will continue to earth effectively for 15 plus years.
Comparison to Other Earthing Underlays
This premium product is far superior to black carbon-coated earthing sleep mats made from Polyurethane (marketed as Leatherette and made in China). Our premium earthing fabric has much better earthing conductivity, superior durability and reliability of conductivity over time. It is also more breathable, and more hygienic, all of which are important for an underlay. We back our durability confidence with a 5-year warranty.
In comparison, black polyurethane earthing sleep mats have a 1-year manufacturer warranty against defects. The maker says under their return policy (Sep 2019) that they should last for years or a lifetime, but they only offer to refund or replace within 1-year of purchase if there is a manufacturing defect.
Better Earthing Underlay Design
Better Earthing Sleep Systems are the world’s first earthing sheets 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. This makes for a very long-lasting product.
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 around 15% solid stainless steel filament in our premium range.
Please note if you have an allergy to nickel in stainless steel or to 9 or 14-carat gold, then avoid direct skin contact whilst sleeping and use only as an underlay.
Why Antibacterial Fibre?
Earthing products will naturally build up some sweat and body oils from normal use. This build-up can create a breeding ground for bacteria, mould or mildew.
Anti-bacterial fabric actively kills or inhibits the growth of bacteria, including those that cause odour.
Better Earthing does not use chemical antibacterial treatments or additives, which are not long-lasting, and can cause skin allergies.
We use German-made natural antibacterial mineral fibres, as part of the fabric composition. This means this product is permanently antibacterial, or antibacterial for its life.
Other benefits in addition to hygiene include less washing needed, plus longer fabric lifespan and lower replacement costs over time.
Better Earthing Premium Underlays (fitted or universal) and made with stainless steel filament come with a 5-Year repair or replace Warranty against manufacturing defects and to earth effectively when used as an underlay in accordance with the care instructions.

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.
Both the Better Earthing Adapter and Lead have built-in safety resistors totalling 60,000 ohms. This protects against the rare (or theoretical) event of a power surge via the earth. If the nearby ground were struck with lighting, barely a mosquito bite of electricity could pass through these resistors. Better Earthing adapters conduct earth only. It 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.
