    Help Stubborn sheets!

    Advertisements
    Do any of you have any ideas on how to get a sheet to stay on a bed? DB's tend to rip in the corner

    I thought it was as simple as buying the size sheet that matches the mattress

    The sheets rip in the corner? Or do you mean that they rip off the corner of the mattress?

    Amazon.com: Allure Home Creations Elasticized Sheet Straps, Set of 4: Home & Garden If the issue is the sheet staying on the corner then I would suggest the above linked product. They are like Uniform Shirt Stays only they are sheet stays. I have used them in the past, but then I lost one or two, and I didn't really need them. So I stopped using them.

    That is so weird! I've never really seen or heard of that before, and I've changed a lot of sheets working as a CNA!

    I can't think of anything that would help, other than to get a different brand of sheets?

    If it is pillow topped that may be a reason why.

    Also don't buy really cheap sheets. The ones at Marshalls/TJMaxx are good because they used to be expensive and aren't anymore .

    If you seem to be getting a rash from them, make sure they are 100% cotton. For some reason sheets make me itchy too, because I am rolling around in them. It helps if I wash them often, and use Free and Clear fabric softener.
