what gripping stuff

Never. There is a spring that's coming through on one side of the mattress, so that side is always kept down.

Maybe once every five years. Right now I have one that can't be flipped over completely; it can only be rotated 180 degrees on the same side. It was fairly new when we moved, so I hadn't rotated it before, and I didn't keep track of which way it was positioned in the new place. My old mattress I flipped maybe once or twice, but at some point I had to just leave it flipped because it had a spring sticking out of one side.

I paid extra to get one of those mattresses that do not require flipping. Flipping is such a pain.

Never, because I don't sleep on a conventional mattress. I sleep on a waterbed and you don't need to rotate them, at least not the type I have.

About once a year, before there was just me I did it once in 5 years, but now it's flipped accasionally. I thought this one would last me forever, but when I do need another, I know exactly what I will get. And it will last longer than this one I have.

I would tell you the name of the mattress, but it would be like a commercial and I won't do that...

I sleep on a fold-out couch. I don't flip the mattress over because the other side has holes and stuff protruding out.

> N/A, I do not sleep on a mattress

I slept in my bed maybe 2 times since April? Coco also slept twice in it (not at the same time!). I do, however, flip the cushions on the couch regularly!

I don't sleep on a mattress.......I sleep on a 2 inch sponge that is on top of a piece of ply wood.
posted 26-Oct-2005 11:40pm  
Maybe twice a year...
I rotate ON my mattress more often than that, though winking raspberry

A two inch sponge isn't very big...I wash my car with one bigger than that! j/k

Lol....Well its not the most comfortable thing in the world....I just don't have room for a proper see...I made my self a loft bead with a desk under my bed is 5'6'' off the I don't really have enough room to put a mattress....or I would hit my head on the ceiling a lot more than I do and my bright ideas....

Ahhh, the things that seem like good ideas in theory!
posted 27-Oct-2005 3:45am  
So far, never. It's only a few months old.
(reply to Irene007) posted 27-Oct-2005 7:32am  
Ahhh! The couch, I see...Perhaps mine is considered a mattress, but I sleep on a futon. Anyhoo, you're the only one I know who flips the cushions on her couch.

Never I have a waterbed! grin

Maybe a couple of times a year. I don't keep track. I just do it periodically when the thought occurs to me and I'm changing the linens.
posted 28-Oct-2005 4:39pm  
no more than once a year
posted 28-Oct-2005 4:39pm  
btw: what DOES happen if you dont flip them?
posted 28-Oct-2005 11:11pm  
I never knew you were suposed to rotate a mattress!!!!!wry smile
posted 30-Oct-2005 9:46am  
My mattress is one that you're not supposed to flip
posted 30-Oct-2005 4:31pm  
6 months. I should do it more, but I average around every 6 months.
posted 30-Oct-2005 9:53pm  
I can't figure why you would want to know this unless you sell mattresses and you are trying to educate us...
posted 5-Nov-2005 4:45pm  
actually, only if i spill something on it or move.
posted 14-Nov-2005 12:29pm  
I really didn't realize that I needed to. Once I get home the answer will officially be "once every 7 years, on the average".

At first I thought this survey was about how often do I turn over during the night.

Maybe I need to sleep under my 3 foam pads!
