Alternative for Waterbed Sheets

I have a water bed and sheets for it never go on sale. I found a pair of king size sheets at our local little thrift shop really cheap. When I got home, I put the fitted bottom on our bed to see how short it was and measured how much more sheet I needed to tuck in. I cut the fitted corners apart then sewed a flat strip of old sheet on the bottom. I now have bottom sheets that fit our bed and stay tucked in.

We have a king size waterbed and found the waterbed sheets harder to find and they always tore, eventually(along the bottom). So, now I buy only "California King" size sheet sets. I buy really good ones (higher thread count) and they last, feel fabulous and the pockets are deep enough to stay in place. I love our waterbed and now I love the sheets too.

My friend uses 2 King sized flat sheets. Just tucks the extra lenght and width under the liner. The water holds it down!

We had a water bed for years and I used flat sheets only. I also mix colors like ivory and beige, you can get them in the sale bin. Also has 300+ thread count for great prices.

You can buy these things that have clips on both ends for keeping your ironing board covers on. They work well to keep sheets on beds too. Theyre elastic so you just stretch it well and clip across each corner underneath. (12/11/2007)

I agree with Debe-for many years I also had a waterbed and only used flat sheets. You just stuff them way down on the sides and the mattress holds them inside the frame. (12/11/2007)

I, too, have a waterbed. Instead of buying the expensive waterbed sheets, I purchase the sheets with deep pockets made for the really thick mattresses. They've worked great for me. (01/03/2008)
