Quick Bed Sheet Change



Use Layers for quick bed sheet change!


The layering of bed linen is a great hack for someone taking care of an incontinent adult. When making the bed, create layers starting with a waterproof mattress pad then a fitted sheet, and create the next layer with a waterproof mattress pad and a fitted sheet, then a third layer of the same. Keep two additional top sheets and blankets folded near the bed with spare night clothes. If the incontinent individual leaks urine in the bed (especially during the night when both of you are tired), you can get the person up, cleaned off and into fresh night clothes at arm’s reach. Then quickly and easily pull off the soiled top sheet and mattress pad, get the person back into a fresh bed immediately and cover them up with a clean top sheet and blanket without having to struggle with fully making a bed.

Nice. It's quite a shame thou that this mattress won't fit for my adjustable beds. And it's almost impossible to find a popper one. Here's the only place I can think of
