Keeping Sheets and Bedclothes From Sliding On The Bed?

I have a memory foam mattress, and I cannot keep the sheets and bedclothes from sliding to the left. Every morning, I have to totally remake the bed, because the sheets and everything else wind up near or on the floor.


I have tried pinning them down, and making an elastic band to fit around the top and bottom, and still I keep having this problem. Does anyone else have this problem with a memory foam mattress, and know what I can do about it? It has just about ruined the looks of my mattress. (I can't take the mattress cover off and wash it. )

This may work , you can give it a try anyway - do you know the kind of kitchen shelf liner -it"s kind of rubbery-soft feeling or what you can put under an area rug to keep it from sliding?

Think you can also get this in "big box" tool-type stores, to put under power tools to keep them from sliding around (may be called a router mat). I have this between box spring & mattress to keep it from moving. Hope it helps ! :-)

I purchased a huge (8'x10') rug pad from my local discount store. Wal-Mart may also sell them. Then I draped it over the mattress cover. Then I put the bottom sheet on the bed, using those elastic strips that have clips at each end. The clips look like those used for old-fashioned thigh-high stockings.


The bottom sheet will stay in place. In fact, maybe you just need the sheet clips. If the thread count of your sheets is ultra-high or you use satin sheets, you definitely need the clips, and tuck the "foot" end of the top sheet under the elastic when you first make the bed.
