If you buy a new one from Sleep Country Canada, they'll come to your house and get rid of your old one for you.

Why buy a mattress anywhere else?

Christina McGee must be awesome in bed.

As far as getting rid of the mattress, give it to a hobo. Failing that, you could always recreate a prison riot and set it on fire and throw it at stuff.

I am having the same problem except my mattress has rag stains on it. It's like an 800 dollar mattress and it's only like three years old, but having to move with it is humiliating. I am forced to move in the dark!

Welcome!

Hahaha. Luckily my disposed mattress was stain free or else the property values may have plummeted.

You guys never heard of a matress pad?

well actually yeah for my last move I searched all over for a mattress pad that zipped all the way around and covered the mattress completely. The only "pad" time things went on top and were held on by elastics. I ended up spending 100 bucks on a thing that zipped on, but was paper thin and is supposed to guard against bacteria. It didn't fit the bed, it was way too loose and I ended up throwing it out.

Does anyone NOT get their matress stained once in a while?

Well sure there may be lots of jizz from past lovers seeped into the mattress. But how do I hide a massive red circle right in the middle?

Put a crappy fitted sheet on it, and move it that way.

If anyone asks why, just say that you're covering it to protect it during the move.



Uh, not that I've ever had a mattress with stains on it.



edit: And I'm assuming you DID clean it as well as possible after the staining occurred. Cause if not, that's just gross.

Ya I wonder how many ladies have this problem. It's not my fault I just have a heavy flow. Why I wear a super duper plus sleeping pad and still, rag everywhere.

I tried cleaning it, the stain spread out and turned orange.

chicks should have (waterproof) mattress protectors on their mattresses, for this purpose.

Take it out to the trainyards and douse it with kerosene!

As for the other difficulty, just dye the rest of the mattress red.

Does it really matter if the moving guy finds out you menstruate?

It's still a gross and unsanitary thing to have to move. No one wants a strangers pile of rag blood in their face.
