Stop Memory Foam Mattress Pad From Sliding Off Bed

Over a year ago we bought a memory foam mattress pad from Costco.

I love how it adds a little bit of softness to the bed, and appears to have helped to relieve my occasional hip joint pain.

Although I love the benefits the memory foam mattress pad provides, the one thing I didn’t like, was the fact that it kept sliding toward the foot of the bed.

Every few days, I was having to readjust the memory foam mattress pad, by pulling it up toward the head of the bed.

I knew there had to be an easy way to keep it secure, but the methodology escaped me.

Then….a light bulb went off.

Since I had been using non skid rug pads under my areas rugs to prevent slippage, I decided to try a piece under the memory foam mattress pad.

It worked!

Now my memory foam mattress pad stay put.

How easy is that? :roll:

    Hi Barbara – that is a great idea. I’d been considering getting one of those pads to prolong the life of our mattress, which is kind of past it’s sell by date.

    But Stuart moves about in his sleep so much that i didn’t think it would be worth it. But, I might try one now and use your tip to stop it from budging. thanks.

    I never thought of how the memory foam pad could extend the life of a mattress, but you’re right. When I bought ours, my greatest concern was to find comfort when my hip joints ached.

    Thank you! I was just about to get rid of the mattres and the foam pad because I have to adjust it everytime I get in and out of bed. I’ve tried clips, hooks,…. everthing I could think of but nothing works. I an going to go now and buy the rug guard! Thanks!!!!
