Why Do This?

Picture the worst mattress you’ve ever slept on. What were the problems? Lumps? Saggage? Both? More than likely, that abysmal bed never got rotated! Don’t let your precious mattress be the reason behind a bad night’s sleep. Preserve the life and quality of your mattress by rotating it every 3-6 months.

Time: 15 minutes

What You'll Need:

    one strong friend

How To:

Note: Some modern mattresses have either a pillow top or are labeled as “no flip.” For these mattresses you don’t need to perform step #3.

  1. Strip. You can’t flip your mattress while it’s made, so strip your sheets and blankets. Tip: This is a great time to toss them in the wash!
  2. Spin. This is where a strong friend gets involved. Stand on either side of the bed and spin the mattress so that the short side that was at the head of the bed is now at the foot. (Bonus points if you say, “Pivot” the entire time like Ross from Friends.) Once a year, do this step to your box spring, too. Before you spin anything, make sure any lamps and furniture are out of the way.
  3. Flip. After you spin your mattress, it’s time to flip (unless you have a pillow top or no-flip mattress). Flip your mattress over so that the top of the mattress is now the bottom. And, you’re done! Grab your sheets from the wash and make your bed. Note: Never flip your box spring!
