New This Month

Mattress Rotation Reminder

Martha Stewart Living, January 2003

For even wear and a longer life, a mattress should be flipped four times a year (alternating between end-over-end and side-over-side rotation). Hotels keep track by marking each end of a mattress: one says "January" (right side up) and "April" (upside down), the other "October" (right side up) and "July" (upside down). Whenever one of those months rolls around, adjust the mattress so that the appropriate month's name is right side up at the foot of the bed.
