We got an adjustable bed earlier this year. So I bought a thing to help keep the sheets in place when the bed moves. It has like 8 clips attached to a big loop that ends up under the mattress that you then cinch down. I don’t remember exactly what it was called, like a mattress bungee or something. It works, but it is such a pain in the ass to get sheets off and then back on the bed. But it needs some type of clip and this seemed like the solution that did not involve lifting the mattress or crawling under the bed.
ETA; it’s called a bed scrunchie. Amazon has it and woot has had it a few times. I bought it from one of them.
Remove cats, pillows and other obstacles from the bed.
Lift the most annoying corner of the mattress and slide fitted sheet over it.
Move to next-most-annoying corner, pull sheet taut, discover that the sheet is in the wrong orientation.
Return to first corner. Remove two cats; one from pile of clean sheet, one from open space on bed. Reposition sheet to align correct corner.
Return to second corner. Pull sheet taut, slide bottom edge under mattress, fish cat out from under sheet.
Proceed to next corner; stretch sheet into place and flip lower edge under mattress. Extract cats from under sheet.
Proceed to final corner. Remove cats from remaining section of sheet and from open area of mattress. Stretch last corner into position, shoo away cat trying to sharpen claws on mattress pad apron, remove other cat from sheet, restretch corner, and flip it down under the mattress. Note large mobile lump under sheet. Make daiquiris.
@hchavers@mike808 I don’t know the hands in the pocket technique. Unless you mean the way I always posture myself when my wife asks for help with any housework.
Would you provide a public service by posting a
link to a demonstration of this maneuver right here on meh forums?
@accelerator@hchavers@mike808 We have a minimal inventory approach. We have one fitted sheet at all times and we wash and refit it on the bed same day. When that one has met its end, we buy a new one on Amazon and the next day we have new sheets.
@Kidsandliz my “blankets” are those microfiber $20 comforters meh sold a while back. Comes off those fine in the wash/dry it feels like. Microfiber sheets are worse. Maybe it’s easier to get of cotton? Like many things if I had a woman over there would need to be some cleaning and explanation
