Mattress Tip of the Week:
Do you flip/turn your mattress?
With most mattresses you do not have to flip anymore, however, it is a good idea to turn from head to toe. You normally sleep in the same spot & to keep the mattress from getting softer in one spot or creating a "hole", it is a good idea to turn every six months or so. 

Want to learn more about your mattress?
