Upper West Hazel's Profile
|Display Name:||Upper West Hazel|
The top sheet pulls out because it is either too short or too slippery. A quick and neat solution: find an old non-slippery flat sheet and stitch it to the bottom of the slippery sheet. making it maybe a yard longer. This should work unless your mattress is too stiff and heavy to lift for tuck-in. I also second the idea of putting a flannel flat sheet or fitted bottom under the "real" sheet, to create needed friction. If switching to flannel sheets altogether, make sure they are all-cotton; if polyester, they can pill and you will be sleeping on sandpaper.
How To Prevent Sheets From Slipping Off The Bed?

Drying with fabrics is left over from the days when dishes were wood and pots would rust. Dishes come out of the dishwasher dry enough for storage; ditto dishes and pots hand-washed and allowed to drop for a minute. I have stacks of cotton washcloths dedicated to kitchen wipe-up and semi-drying of pots and other hand-washable. And stacks of white bar cloths for grungier tasks. Cotton hand towels (not dish cloths) hang on the refrigerator handle for interim hand-wiping. The thinner the better. But not microfiber—my experience is that they HOLD a lot of water, but are too slow to pick it up. Even after many washings, a drop of water will bead on the surface before sinking in. I appreciate all the suggestions above, and will certainly try some.
