Thread: Tricks for changing sheets?

    Tricks for changing sheets?

    Have a nightstand on each side of the bed. My arms are not long enough to stretch a sheet around the mattress. A reacher works but it takes forever to work it down around the mattress so it fits right.

    Appreciate hearing any tricks folks have come up with for changing the sheets from a power chair.

    Are you able to pull the mattress off the bed say about a foot.... head of bed to feet of bed direction.
    Snag the sheets around both cornets at the head end of the mattress, then push the mattress back on again.. then the corners at the feet end of the mattress?
    Just ideas...

    Not much help in changing but I sleep on a large bath towels, and just change that every few days and change the sheets once or twice a month depends if I have sweat a lot or not.

    Haha...I do the towel thing too. But after a couple weeks it has to be changed. Sliding the mattress away from the wall is probably the most convenient. Thxs.

    If changing sheets on your bed is a problem, I would think there are other housekeeping tasks that are equally difficult.

    Maybe your best solution is a once a week, once every two weeks housekeeping service.
