Keeping Sheets Attached to the mattress

A top consumer complaint for fitted sheets is that they do not fit the mattress because their pocket depth is too short or too long. This can result in loose fitting sheets or sheets that don't stay fitted to the mattress. It is important, therefore, to measure the thickness of your mattress (including any topper) and buy a sheet with pocket depth equal to or greater than the thickness of the mattress.

An adjustable sheet fastener, such as the highly rated one below, is designed to eliminate pocket depth problems by keeping the sheet tight and secure.

Additional Electric Blanket and Pad Research Findings

– Electric mattress pads overall have somewhat higher owner satisfaction than electric blankets. The pads, however, tend to be about 20% more expensive.

– Owner data suggests that electric mattress pads tend to outperform electric blankets in generating adequate warmth as well as alleviating pain, such as arthritis. Out of 34 people included in our research who said that they have owned both electric blankets and electric mattress pads, 24 prefer the pads.

– Reliability for both electric blankets and electric mattress pads has greatly improved in the past few years. Nevertheless, reliability / longevity are still the top owner complaint.
