They must be talking about bums who sleep on mattresses with no bedsheets.

my little brother use to sleep with a plastic sheet under his bed sheets to deflect his urine from the mattress when he would piss the bed at night.... maybe get you one of those They sound really nice when you roll around on the bed, sounds like rolling on top of a large pile of paper.

That sounds like a Mythbusters opportunity. The sweat is going to evaporate, and those dust mites are microscopic. Double in weight?

The only way it would double in weight is if you're sticking your dead intruders inside the mattress.
