Memory foam mattress pads are a wise way to add comfort to your mattress. They are long-lasting and add soft support without holding in heat. Memory foam is a pressure-sensitive foam material that conforms to the contours of the body. It can assist people with back problems and general sleeping issues, but it has a tendency to slip and slide. A few steps can assure that your mattress pad stays in place and you get a good night's sleep.
Remove any zip covers from the foam mattress. The mattress itself is less likely to slip around than with a cloth cover and it is more functional.
Place a non-slip rug pad directly onto the mattress and put the foam mattress on top of the rug pad. The rug pad should be slightly smaller than the mattress pad.
Place the mattress pad on top of the non-slip rug.
Place a fitted sheet around the mattress pad and mattress, securing the mattress pad in place.
Place bed sheet straps around the fitted sheet, further tightening the fit of the mattress pad to the bed.
