How do you get sheets to stay on the beds?
almost all the beds in my house have the sheets off daily...
are there any tricks to it? (besides for telling everyone not to move in their sleep)

Funny - I have the same problem. And it seems that the newer sheets slide off more easily than the older ones. It's very weird ...

They sell clips that help them stay on.

You need to find these: http://www.amazon.com/Sheet-St.....FWFJ8

In the US you can easily get them at the various bed and bath stores. Not sure who would have them herein Israel... Golf maybe?

yeah they look like girdle clips ... they never helped me ... although it was the dxh that moved a lot ... I was known to sleep quite still ...

however, now my body aches so much I flip & I flop and wake up with half a sheet - no socks & a kitty cat holding my feet hostage ... Exploding anger Banging head (see if you can avoid getting old)

maybe just change the sheets every day - What

I've used safety pins in the past. Just put one in all 4 corners. Works perfectly.

Are you guys talking about fitted sheets or flat sheets tucked under the mattress?

I've never had this problem with fitted sheets-even cheap ones from Target have a tight enough elastic to stay put.

If you're using American sized sheets (fitted or otherwise) on Israeli sized mattresses, they're going to be too big.

It probably doesn't help matters that beds in the US have gotten taller so if you are using recent US sheets they might have gotten bigger to accommodate the new sized beds and be even more out of size for Israeli mattresses.

I was a super restless sleeper as a child and nothing-not the clips, grips or any other product kept the sheets on the bed- so it this is your problem you might just be stuck with it.
