So how do you flip a mattress? Do you flip it the long way, or the short way? What way did you rotate your mattress last time? This past weekend, I came up with an easy system that is pretty straight forward and will help you remember when and how to flip your mattress.
It’s often easy to forget whilst balancing our everyday to do’s and crazy lives that flipping our mattress is pretty important. It’s recommended that any mattress whether spring based, foam and more be flipped every three months to not only keep your mattress in shape but to also enable you to enjoy all the benefits it has to offer giving you the perfect night’s sleep. So here are seven reasons and techniques as to why you should flip your mattress and give it a try yourself.
Now you’re all set up. Start by positioning the corner marked with a 1 in the “key” corner. Next, on the first of every month, simply flip your mattress so that the next number is positioned over the “key”. From 1 to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4 and finally 4 back to 1. Depending on how often you wash your bed sheets, you could simply flip your mattress every time the sheets are stripped from your bed.
We marked our mattress with arrows centred along the bottom edge of the mattress. if the arrow points towards the head of the bed/at the foot, we flip in that direction. Once flipped, we’ll see a new arrow going left/right in the same place. That’ll be the direction we’ll flip next. The arrows are cleverly designed to ensure that we’re flipping the mattress in an even-wear pattern.
