Mattress Tip of the Week:
Try not to sit on Your Mattress!  This is a tough one!  Mattresses are not designed to be "sat" on, they're designed to support the body lying down.  When you're sitting up in bed against your headboard, you're focusing all of your weight into a very small area which can cause it to wear unevenly.  Try to keep your bed for sleeping and extracurricular activities only.

Summertime means more outside activity & more laundry. Avoid potential problems with your laundry appliances by moving them four inches from the wall to prevent hose kinking & damage. Also, never leave your home when the washer is running!!
