    the honest person... hahahaha.

    the problem with pillow top mattresses is they cannot be flipped. and actually no matter which way you rotate the mattress, your tush ends up in the same spot so its not making a lot of difference.

    we rotate 2x a year. spring and fall, along with the smoke detector batteries.

    Many modern mattresses have a specific top and bottom and should not be flipped. Not sure what the creator this poll is selling.

    Yeah, the newer ones don't flip. You just move the head to the foot. It seems kind of pointless to me but I do it twice a year.

    It actually depends upon your mattress if it is double side and then you can flip it in a week or a month but you have to clean it regularly to remove dust. or Call expert for mattress cleaning and sanitizing.

    We have a memory foam mattress, it doesn’t get flipped. And it weighs a ton, so it doesn’t get turned. I imagine the mattresses for beds that change head positions don’t get flipped or turned either.

    My preference is a "padded rock". The 200 lb. Wolfhound sleeps on it during the day (and at night when he can get away with it), so I buy new every five years.
