Never Forget to Flip or Rotate Your Mattress

In my last post, I shared how I remember when I cleaned my furnace filter. Today I want to talk about extending the life of your mattress.

We spend 1/3 of our life on our mattress and we need to take care of it. We all know the importance of flipping the mattress and rotating it. I have a solution to knowing if, and when, you moved it last.

I wrote “Jan” on the right side of the end of my mattress. When I flip it, I write “Apr.” I rotate and flip it in July and write “Jul.” One more flip, because it has already been rotated, is done in October. The word, “Oct” is written opposite “Jul,” and upside down.

When you change your sheets you can tell at a glance if it has been flipped and rotated in a timely manner. Every three months you will be sleeping on a different section of the mattress.

No more hills and valleys!

This end up in January.
