Tempur-Pedic, Sky Bedding, Whip-It: Do they work like on TV?

The holiday season is no bed of roses; sometimes it's downright stressful. So what better time for Rossen Reports' special series "Does It Work?" to look at products that promise a great night's sleep and more?

The Rossen Reports team tried out three products frequently seen in TV ads:

Tempur-Pedic promises "undisturbed, life-changing sleep," and their ad backs it up by showing people body-slamming and battering a mattress without spilling a drop from a glass of wine standing on it. The Rossen Reports team does the same things to a Tempur-Pedic — including mauling it with a sledgehammer!

The Sky Bedding mattress protector says it can shield your mattress from all kinds of spills. The Rossen Reports tries pouring blue juice, just like in the ad, to see if it soaks through.

Whip-It stain remover claims it can blast away old stains, new stains, even set-in stains. TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen pours wine on a carpet (a bit reluctantly) to try the product out.

Speaking of tryouts: In many cases new mattresses can be returned, but you first have to try them out for 30, 60 or even 90 days before you're allowed to return them, to give your body time to adjust to the new mattress.
