The joy of getting into a freshly made bed at the end of a hard day is a simple pleasure that we are privileged to feel. However, in simple terms, there is nothing that can dampen that feeling any more than loosely fitted or ill-fitting bed sheets. You want bed sheets that are tight and remain that way no matter how much you move around in the night. So what can you do to avoid this common problem? Here is how to keep your bed sheets tight.
Get the right fit for your bed
One of the first things to consider would be to ensure that you get the right fit for your bed. It is no good having a sheet that is designed for a super king-size bed when you only have a king size. This will cause issues in terms of the sheet staying in place. Know the size of your bed and buy a fitted sheet that replicates that. The elasticated bands on each corner will ensure that the fitted bed sheet stays tight and in place.
Use your mattress
If you have chosen not to have a fitted bed sheet, then you can use the weight of your mattress to keep your bed sheet tight and in place. Place the bedsheet over your mattress, and then fold each corner under the mattress so that it is secured in place.
Clip the corners or use sheet fasteners
If you struggle to fold the bed sheet into place, then you can buy specific sheet fasters or clips for under $10 on Amazon that will keep the bed sheet tight and in place. You clip the corners or fasten the points together to create a fitted sheet without the need of buying one.
Use a Bed Scrunchie
Yes, they make scrunchies for beds! The Bed Scrunchie is the world’s first 360-degree all-in-one bed tightening solution that clips to the edges of your bedsheets (with no mattress lifting required), and then easily slides under your mattress with your sheets. You can even use two bed scrunchies at one if you need one for your sheets and another one for your mattress topper or mattress protector.
Safety pin the sheets in place
If you can’t buy sheet fasteners or clips then you can use safety pins instead. This is advisable to use the safety pins underneath the mattress rather than on top to avoid any discomfort at night. Safety pins are a flexible way to help keep your bed sheet tight and in place.
Iron your sheets and get rid of creases
One of the main things that you can do to help yourself when it comes to keeping your bed sheets in place is to iron your sheets before you put them on your bed. This may feel like an epic chore to do, and one that won’t provide much benefit, but without the creases in your bed sheet, you will find it much easier to place your bed sheet in place and clip it to where you want it to be.
Create your own bed sheet straps
Finally, you could look at creating your own straps and bands for your bed sheet. These will work effectively like giant elastic bands that you can place over your mattress and keep the bed sheet in place and tight. You will find many DIY ideas online, although it may be less expensive (and less of a headache) to buy some on Amazon as they are quite affordable.
Hopefully, these tips and suggestions will help you to keep your bed sheets tight.
