Keep Your Top Sheet Firmly In Place On Your Bed With A Knot

You make your bed with the best of intentions, but tossing and turning throughout the night can pull a loose top sheet into strange and tangled positions. If you want to keep it in the right place, redditor Midgers suggests making a knot or two.

Tie a knot at the end of your flat sheet and tuck it into the fitted sheet. It won't come loose during the night. I discovered this while searching for a solution to bunched up flat sheets in the morning as my boyfriend is very tall and very fond of kicking them untucked. It works like a charm and they always stay put.

I've always tucked mine under the mattress, but I manage to eventually untuck it after 1-2 weeks. That said, if you want a reminder to wash your sheets at a regular interval, you could just do it every time your top sheet comes untucked.

    I hope you do manage to untuck it after 1-2 weeks to wash it!

    it sounds like you either need to have long flat sheets, and/or to place it at a 45degree angle to the bed so that you've got enough knot to tuck in.

    Had this same issue with my missus, she liked to be tucked in with a top sheet, I'd kick them off because I hated it.

    Now we have no top sheets so guess I won :D


    Agree. You wouldn't get me into that bed with a cat on it to begin with. So strategies for tying down the sheets are moot!
