Why YSK: Dog beds are hard to clean, and most are not liquid proof, to clean them requires taking off the cover, tossing it in the wash and then struggling to get the cover back on.
Crib mattresses come in different sizes, are liquid proof and the covers, AKA sheets, go off and on very easily. They come in full size for larger dogs and portable crib size for smaller dogs, although this size is really big enough for a large dog as well. All different prices and quality.
Easy to clean and wash, crib mattresses do make good dog beds.
I've tried to post this so many times but it keeps getting kicked back by a bot, hope this time works. Flair, check, "why YSK" check, YSK in title, check. Lets try this again.....
So yesterday I posted on here asking for starting points on finding a new mattress. In yesterday’s post I explained our situation but I’ll give a shortened version: -Me: female 5’ 2” 135lbs, mostly side sleeper, lower back/hip pain -Husband: male, 5’ 7” ~140lbs lbs, mostly side sleeper with fibromyalgia that causes mostly shoulder pain, sleeps hot
Narrowed down research to four mattresses:
Right now we are looking at medium firmness for a Queen for all of these. We both like to be somewhat “hugged” when we sleep, but not entirely sunken in. What I’d really like to know are your experiences regarding firmness if you or your partner have similar stats/issues. I’d also like to know your experiences with customer service for any of these companies.
We did it! We pulled the trigger on the snoo and are now eagerly waiting for both snoo and baby to arrive in the next couple weeks!
We bought an extra in each sleep sack size, but I’m wondering what other accessories we need! Extra sheets? How many? Do any off brand ones work? Extra mattresses? How many sleep sacks? Ahh so many decisions!
Thanks for your tips!
FTM here, so this is really just a question out of curiosity. I’ve read that of all the baby gear that can be purchased second hand, crib mattresses are one of the few items that shouldn’t be. But does that apply to siblings? I imagine with car seats you could reuse the same one since you’d know for sure if it had been in an accident or not, but does that same logic apply to crib mattresses?
Basically what I said above.
Look for some opinions on the blow up car mattresses for sedans sold online!
How long do they last? (Holes and such)
Are they comfy in cold climates?
Motor repair costs?
Whats a good price for a decent car mattress?
Asking cause im trying to see if I'd just be better off creating my own setup from plyboard and a small memory foam mattress
Reminder i drive a sedan
Im super frugal.
I can't find a pillow sub Reddit about pillows and not people humping them. So I thought mattresses pillows like hot chocolate and marshmallows. In summary can anyone recommend a pillow because I have never bought one and I can't stand mine. I am from the UK though

Dear Team Members,
Whole Foods refuses to hear the voices of its employees. When team members speak up about improving their working conditions, they’re either ignored, silenced, or retaliated against. When our leadership engages in abusive behavior, there is no accountability or oversight. This company does not have our best interests at heart.

Whole Worker was created because we believe Whole Foods team members should have the right to organize and form a union within the workplace. Whole Foods has strayed from its so-called “core values” since Amazon bought the company in 2017. In the last couple of years, our leadership has phased out our gain-sharing program, taken healthcare away from thousands of part-time employees, and even suggested that team members donate their paid vacation hours to their colleagues during a pandemic. Amazon has a horrific, well-documented track record when it comes to labor practices. By every indication, Whole Foods is becoming just as abusive and dangerous as its parent company. It doesn’t have to be like this. Demands

Hey all, I’m an alum from a few years ago and looking to purchase a tempurpedic mattress for my new apartment. I really loved the ones WashU has but I’m not sure which model (Cloud, Adapt, ProAdapt, etc.) and firmness (soft, medium, medium-hybrid, or firm) they were. Would anyone be able to let me know what the tag on yours says? Thanks!
So I'm shopping for a new mattress since my old one has seen better days. I'm 6'3 420 and I'm mainly a stomach sleeper but occasionally I'll sleep on my back. I'd like something that can support my weight but also isn't too firm or uncomfortable for anyone I sleep with. I was looking at titan mattress by brooklyn bedding but it may be too firm for average folk.
I just saw something online that said that it’s important to be careful about which crib you buy because depending on the paint/wood used, there can be toxic chemicals that can harm your baby (same for mattresses). Has anyone researched this issue? I was kind of surprised bc I thought baby stuff was highly regulated in the US. Trying to figure out if it’s something to be concerned about.
I guess that’s what you get for being a need-aware T20
I've tried two steam cleaners so far and both were disastrous
Trade volumes and momentum stocks will that be the norm or will this be a fad.... I hope the new investors stick with it but I hope fundamentals matter again somewhat and the guys who cannot afford a loss, get out with their shirts....
I received my order from mattresses.net (Arizona Premium Mattress) and thought I'd share my shipping / assembly experience for anyone who is looking to purchase from this company.
Order: Queen Ultimate Hybrid Pocket Coil Latex Mattress with Firm Natural Talalay Topper $1,195.00
*Ordered January 04 2021
*Shipped Wednesday January 13 from Phoenix AZ via FedEx
*Delivered Monday January 18 in NYC (2 days before FedEx original expected delivery date)
Exactly two weeks from order to delivery. I was expecting over a month after ordering just to ship the mattress from what other people said. YMMV.
Shipment arrived in two boxes: 1 smaller box with the topper, and 1 larger box with the coils and cover. There was a hole in the larger box but the coils were double wrapped in plastic and completely unharmed.
Assembly was easy and quick. I had watched the assembly video prior but I didn't know how everything would be packaged. The coils came rolled up neatly already in the zipped up mattress cover. After unrolling and cutting the final piece of plastic off, they sprung up and the mattress grew to queen size. I unzipped the mattress cover, laid in the topper and zipped it all back up. The cover is sized perfectly to fit the coils+topper with no extra room to spare, but it wasn't hard to zip up.
I haven't slept on it yet and I am not a mattress expert, so I won't speak to the comfort / quality. It feels incredibly premium compared to my previous cheap foam amazon mattress that deteriorated quickly. I chose mattresses.net after a ton of research and testing out much more expensive mattresses at brick and mortar mattress stores that were essentially the same materials. I did not mind the delivery wait or 10 minute assembly in order to save money.
I'll answer any questions if you guys want. I'm mostly posting this for a reference if anyone else is looking into this company. I couldn't find much info about shipping. Some other posts that I saw regarding APM orders:

I loved the novel idea of owning and sleeping in an air mattress. After using one for a week, my back hurt, I was always cold because of the void between my sheets and the floor, and the constant slow depressurisation made me hate the experience.
Trying to get real answers to mattress questions online is hard. Paid advertisements masked as reviews make the whole industry toxic. Any short term rental owners out there have success with these types of mattresses or should I just go with tried and true? Lastly, what do you like to sleep on firm or soft?
If you have a chicken farm (automatic or not) you'll maybe relate to this. After a lot of uses, you can sometimes have one or many doubles chests filled with stacks of feathers.
However, we only use them to craft arrows, book and quill, and some types of fireworks (star shape). We can also sell them to a fletcher villager for some emeralds.
Moreover, even though Minecraft is very rich in term of variety of building blocks as well as decorative, I think that we may lack of furniture, such as tables, shelves or sofa/seats.
So, here's my idea :
What if we could use feathers with leather to create a pillow or a little mattress (like : one leather at the center of the crafting table, surrounded with 8 feathers). This "pillow' would look like a slab. You can place one next to another to link them just like a chest/double-chest does. (Maybe you could also right-click on them so seat, just like in a boat)
If, for some reason, we want to go really far, we could dye those leather pillows as we do with leather armor, combining different colors and create a unique look. I think that would be a good way to create a really original furniture since there would be thousands of possibilities with different shapes, sizes and colors of sofas, seats,... (But tbh, I don't really see this happening).
I believe that creating those can be a good way to greatly improve decoration in the game as long as they stay simple. It would give another reason to use feathers which are now a bit left out, since arrows can be easily obtained thanks to skeleton farms (or just killing skeleton regularly) and firework and books and quill are not something you craft everyday.
My 10 yo decided to go through puberty and have the tall gene we all desperately crave so we now need to get rid of her old mattress.
Where can we do this in Worcester it's surrounding areas? According to it's website, the residential drop off is currently closed for the season.
Any help is appreciated!!!
In 2012 we went all-in and bought a split king, adjustable frame Tempurpedic sleep system for a whole lot of $$. I had a heart attack but we were living the double income, CF life and thought go big or go home.
In the first year, my mattress top got this weird buckle in it, I actively use the adjustable frame to elevate the head and foot a bit to ease the stress on my back. The buckle looked like someone left a rolled pair of socks under the bedspread. I didn't think to call them about this. Just didn't think about the warranty and how this isn't right.
Anyway, 8 years later, my adjustable frame isn't responding to the remote. DH replaced the battery and no love. He is retired now and has the time so dug out the paperwork. He called about it and also mentioned the buckle.
8 years and we were awarded a new set of mattresses! We chose to spend a few $$ more and upgrade them which gives us another 10-year warranty. They were delivered yesterday. Last night we slept very well. Their tech has improved, the new mattresses were way lighter and more easily carried than the old ones, which weighed a ton when we'd spin them every six months.
Turns out the remote for the adjustable bed has a 20-year warranty. Rather than send out a tech to see what was wrong with the machine right off the bat, they just sent a new remote to see if that was the issue. Yup. So we are back in business. I can adjust my bed and sleep on brand new mattresses! Bonus, we bought a soft for me and a firm for DH. No more leaving the bed to sleep on the hardwood floor 3-5 nights a week.
I've never had an uncomfortable hotel mattress experience. Do they replace the mattresses more often than a home use would? Are most mattresses actually comfortable to most people who don't have chronic back issues and people are nitpicking when they say a mattress sucks?
My wife and I are searching for a new bed/lounger (I say lounger because if I say "couch" it implies "futon" lol) and I figure y'all are the best place to ask since I'm sure many of you have limited space as well.
We don't need something that turns into a full on couch like most "futons" do. Those things are more "couch that turns into mediocre bed". We are looking for something more akin to "bed that turns into a thing that can be sat on for reading/feeding baby/watching TV/etc" .
We are highly limited on space, and our current Queen bed is too large, doesn't fold, and is massively in the way.
Our criteria are fairly open. The only "musts" are:
It would be even cooler if it could, even in its folded state, accommodate some underneath storage... Although this isn't required.
I have searched Google thoroughly but I just can't find exactly what we're looking for. I know there is a hidden gem in there somewhere though... Maybe a few.
My mattress is the "old fashioned" coil mattress with a box spring, I bought it 20 years ago from good old Sears. I have a metal frame (pretty much an outline with some supports for the box spring to sit on) and a headboard that's been attached to it. The frame is on wheels, works with my headboard, and I like it.
I'm in the market for a memory foam or hybrid mattress (undecided). I see a lot of companies selling their own brand of foundation, but is there anything I can put onto my current frame so I can keep my wheels and headboard? Is that a thing that exists? Or is my only option to buy the foundations that would eliminate my wheeled frame and headboard--my bed is up against windows so I really do need my headboard. And my headboard was chosen because it's not solid and I can slip my hands through areas to open/close windows
My Gf and I are on the lookout for a new mattress, we have the bear hybrid but don’t find it supportive or comfortable. I’m 240ish and she’s about 200.
We’ve gone through a bunch of mattresses about a year or so ago but have moved and want a king. The bear is our first attempt.
In the past, I have liked the Avacado (without a topper) as I love love love a firm mattress. With my bad back and herniated discs I imagine it’s not great for me but I do love it.
She loved the purple 2 and the helix nightfall. Both of which in my mind are too squishy.
So, what’s the compromise? I was thinking the Nest latex hybrid next, firm for me and med for her, but I’ve heard they give you a hard time if you don’t like it. Any other ideas?? Thank you so much!!!
Pop some corn and settle in. This will be interesting.

So I've recently got back into fallout 4 and I'm trying to build up settlements but I can't move the mattresses in Tenpines Bluff despite it saying no one is using them yet when it is night 2 people will go and sleep in them, is there a mod or a specific way to be able to move them? I'm quite a fair way into the game and I'm not sure what to do about.
I've tried holding down the move button to get them to move but that tip isn't working.
Any help would be appreciated.
