Beds From Rubber Bubbles (May, 1950)
Beds From Rubber Bubbles
EVER dreamed of sleeping on a bed of angel food cake?
Well, foam-rubber mattresses are made at U. S. Rubber Company’s Mishawaka, Ind. plant like your ole mammy used to bake that lightweight delicacy.
Just as she whipped up the ingredients, poured the batter into the pan and placed it in the oven, so the pure milk of the rubber tree is mixed with chemicals, whipped into a fluffy foam and then poured into a two-piece mold to be vulcanized into permanent form.
The result is a magic material which looks and feels very much like that same angel food cake. And it’s as comfortable as a mattress of downy feathers.
If you’re not the cake-eating type of dreamer, you’ve probably dreamed of sleeping on a bed of bubbles. Well, this miracle mattress can match that, too. It’s 85 per cent air!
