I say goodwill in the video but i meant salvation army. I tried to donate a 00 like-new king size double pillow top mattress to the salvation army , I called and scheduled a pickup and moved it outside per their instructions. They showed up the next day, never knocking on the door but instead left a note saying REJECTED – too soiled, stained, etc. Thanks for wasting my time !, this was like new with the exception of a small black line from the moving strap, I bet you or I could have wiped it off. they must not be hurting if they are rejecting nice stuff like this!

Moving a mattress is tough work – no matter what the size or where you are moving it. But try moving it up stairs – when a king size mattress can weigh 100 lbs or more!
Luck for you, there are definitely tricks that the pros use to make the job easier.
In this video, we are going to show you the best pro trick to move a mattress up a large flight of stairs. All done single-handedly by Janet. These are steep stairs!
Ideally you should have two people but if you don’t have the luxury, you can do this. Just take it slow.
This is a king size Puffy mattress (https://www.twomomsreview.com/puffy). It’s all foam and is soft memory foam. In order for this to work you have to be able to fold the mattress in half. If it came in a box, it will fold. You’ll find more in-depth instructions on how to do that in the video below.

Earthquake-proof bed ‘swallows’ you when it senses the ground shaking: Mechanism drops you and your mattress into a sealed box full of supplies. Concept by DAHIR INSAAT, original links https://www.youtube.com/user/dahirsem/videos …Animated video shows concept designs for earthquake-proof beds. In the event of a quake, the mattress drops into the bed’s frame. A hard top then covers the bed to seal the box and protect against debris.
If you live in an earthquake hot spot you may be able to sleep a little sounder, thanks to concept designs for an earthquake-proof bed.
An animated video showcases a series of designs for a bed that protects its slumbering occupants during a quake – but it may not be the bed of choice for the claustrophobic.
Resembling a cross between a strong box and a Venus flytrap, the mattress drops into a chamber covered with a protective lid when sensors feel the ground shaking.
A video showcases a series of designs for a bed that protects sleepers during an quake – but it may not be the bed of choice for the claustrophobic. Resembling a cross between a strong box and a Venus flytrap, the mattress drops into a chamber covered with a hard cover when sensors feel the ground shaking (animated)
The earthquake-proof bed is designed to seal in the sleeper in the event of a serious quake. When tremors start, the mattress drops inside the bed’s frame
The occupant inside would then wait out the quake in the strong box until help arrived, or the quake subsided.
HOW THE EARTHQUAKE-PROOF BEDS WOULD WORK
Chinese inventor Wang Wenxi was granted a patent for the initial quake-proof bed in 2010 and has since updated the designs.
The original design shows the bed consisting of a large metallic box with a mattress on top.
When the earthquake hits, this mattress is seen being dropped by a hinged mechanism, while the lid of the box closes above it, sealing the occupant inside.
The second design, instead, drops the user through what resembles a trap door.
The hinge is in the center of the bed, rather than the side, so the mattress drops flat to the bottom of the box, rather than tipping the sleeper out.
The animation shows that the beds would even have space for supplies, including water, food, medical kits and even tools, but how you might access any of this is unclear.
There is no word yet on whether any of the designs will make it past the initial concept phase, or when you might be able to buy one.
But judging by their size and sturdy construction, you may need to enlist the help of a few friends to help you get them up the stairs.

Today, Connecticut becomes the first state in the nation with a statewide recycling program for used mattresses and box springs. The program, known as Bye Bye Mattress, is administered by the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC), a non-profit organization created by the mattress industry to develop and manage the state mattress recycling program mandated by law in 2013. Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), city leaders and representatives from the solid waste and recycling industry gathered at the City of Hartford’s Bulky Waste & Recycling Center to commemorate the inaugural truckload of mattresses bound for the recycling facility.
“The implementation of this first in the nation mattress stewardship program means previously discarded mattresses will be recycled in an environmentally sound manner, sustaining jobs in Connecticut and resulting in cost savings for municipalities,” said DEEP’s Commissioner Robert Klee. “This program mirrors similar stewardship programs the state has enacted for electronics, paint and thermostats. We recognize the Mattress Recycling Council for their commitment to the success of this program and the City of Hartford for their leadership in getting this law passed.”
Bye Bye Mattress allows Connecticut residents to drop-off used mattresses at participating collection sites and recycling facilities for free. Almost 50 cities and towns across Connecticut have joined the program as designated collection locations, with some also providing curb-side pick-up. These sites span the state across urban and rural areas. Residents that take their used mattresses directly to one of the designated recycling facilities located in East Hartford or Bridgeport will receive $ 2 per mattress from the recycler (limit four per person per day/eight per person per year). Connecticut residents can find their nearest participating collection site or recycling facility at http://www.byebyemattress.com.
MRC is also working with mattress retailers, hotels, military facilities, universities, healthcare facilities and other public and private entities in Connecticut to divert mattresses from the solid waste stream. It will report the program’s progress to DEEP each October.
“Working with all stakeholders, the industry has taken a major step toward creating a cost-effective solution to a long-term problem,” said Ryan Trainer, president of MRC. “We designed Connecticut’s program to increase the recycling of used mattress materials by leveraging the existing waste collection infrastructure. MRC is working with many types of businesses and industries to recycle their used mattresses through the program. The Connecticut resident benefits from the no-cost drop-off opportunities. This will both encourage more mattress recycling as well as discourage illegal dumping.”
The program is funded through a $ 9 recycling fee that is collected when a mattress or box spring is sold to Connecticut consumers. Consumers will notice this fee as a separate line item on their receipt. The fee is used to pay for transporting and recycling the discarded mattresses.
Similar recycling programs are expected to launch in California and Rhode Island in 2016. To learn more about Bye Bye Mattress visit http://www.byebyemattress.com.
Each year, 35 to 40 million new mattresses and box springs are sold in the United States, and at least 15 to 20 million used mattresses and box springs are discarded.
More than 80% of a used mattress’ components can be recycled —the metal springs, foam, wood and fibers — and made into new useful products. For example:
The steel springs are recycled as metal scrap and can be melted and used to make new appliances, building materials and other steel products.
The foam can be turned into carpet underlayment or animal bed padding.
The wooden frames can be shredded to produce landscaping mulch.
The cotton and other fiber can be used in industrial oil filters and other textile applications.
THE RECYCLING PROCESS
Most recyclers currently use the following process to dismantle a mattress:
1. The top mattress layer (including the outer fabric) is cut, peeled and separated from the mattress’ interior materials (which can include fiber, polyurethane or latex foam and steel springs).
2. The interior materials are pulled apart and separated by type.
3. Foam, fiber and other soft commodities are baled and compressed for transport to scrap dealers or companies that will consume them to make new products.
4. Metal springs from mattresses and box springs are extracted and sent to scrap recyclers that will sell them to steel mills and foundries.
5. Wood is chipped or shredded.
ABOUT MATTRESS RECYCLING COUNCIL
The Mattress Recycling Council is a non-profit organization formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs in states which have enacted mattress recycling laws – Connecticut, California and Rhode Island. Each state’s program will be funded by a recycling fee that is collected when a mattress or box spring is sold. The fees pay for the transportation and recycling of the mattresses.

If you own a daybed, then it may be a good idea to protect it with a daybed mattress cover. You use it for guests, naps, and even as a couch. They are not nearly as durable as regular beds, due to the thin mattress and lack of box spring, so therefore it is important to protect it from normal wear and tear, from spills, and from bed bugs and dust mites.
A daybed should be treated like any other furniture item in your home. Therefore you want to take precautions to keep it clean, sterile, and in good condition at all times. A daybed is a significant financial investment, so it only makes sense that you would want to do whatever it takes to protect that investment. Thus, protecting it with a daybed mattress cover is a very good idea. Doing so will help to preserve it and prolong its use, so you can get the most mileage for your money and use it for many years to come.
But why all the fuss about using a daybed mattress cover? Well, consider this: All it takes is one single accident and your daybed can be ruined. A spilled beverage, a bedwetting accident, a pet accident, blood or other bodily fluids can ruin your daybed mattress. If you protect it with a daybed mattress cover, and these accidents were to occur, all you would have to do is wash the cover in the laundry. Your mattress will remain clean and protected.
Another issue is the problem of dust mites. If you suffer from dust allergies, then you want to protect your day bed mattress from an infestation of these critters. Once they get on your mattress, it is very difficult to get them off. And once they infiltrate your mattress, you will be constantly exposed to the allergens that they emit.
You just have to be prepared for the worst, as anything can happen at any time. The daybed is a vey important piece of furniture in your home, and you want to make sure that it is clean and available for use at any time, whether it is for occasional guests or for daily use.
Normal wear and tear is another concern when it comes to beds. They can get ripped, torn, or worn out over the course of time. A daybed mattress cover can help to preserve its life and keep it from wearing out too quickly.
