I flip ours every three months or so. It is supposed to help extend the life of the mattress. I know some people don't. Do you?

I have flipped a mattress before, but not the one I have now. It is a king size mattress and it is so huge I would have trouble flipping it. Maybe sometime if I have help I will flip it, but it is not something I can do by myself.

Next time one of your brothers is up for a visit. Maybe one of them would help you.

I don't flip sides of our mattress because it is a pillow top and it's only a pillow top on one side. I do switch the top to the bottom and the bottom to the top about every two months though. I'm hoping that is enough to make it last.

I flip the mattress when asked to do so.

Yes, I do flip mine several times a year and I also vaccum it also. I had heard that it extends the life of the mattress also and that is why I do it I can't afford to go out every 6 months to a year to get another one.

The last mattress I bought says not to flip the mattress it is a pillowtop and there is no need to flip it. If you have an older mattress you need to flip them but the newer ones you don't.

Yes! We do! We do it about every five months or so though. Not really on the schedule, but just when we think about it. We've had the mattress for 13 years already, but you wouldn't know it to sleep on it. It's still immaculate and feels fantastic. I'm sure part of the reason is because we flip it on a regular basis. Great question!

I used to do that when I was single and the mattress kind of got lumpy after a few months. Now my wife says its good to do it once in a while - we've probably done that once in 6 months the last year

We have a pillow top mattress so I don't think we can...lol. I do turn it, though, every few months...you know, so my side is turned and then becomes hubby's side. Probably once or twice a year actually...so not too frequently.

I do sometimes, but not as often as every three months. It is too heavy for me to lift by myself.
