Time to make your bed!
Literally! So, I am wondering, who has made their own mattress or other form of bed? It's been on my long list of things to try for several years, due to concerns about flame retardents and other nasties in commercial mattresses. You can buy wool mattresses that are naturally flame retardent, but they are pretty pricey- and I'm cheap. Wool futons are more reasonable, but still a little steep for cheapskate me.
There are a lot of alternative stuffings for mattresses- wool, cotton, straw, buckwheat, millet hulls- those are what come to mind offhand.
Every time I get sick and spend extra time in bed, I'm reminded how old my mattress is. I have a large bag of buckwheat hulls, so I am thinking of trying this soon. I saved instructions of few years ago for a daybed that consisted of several pillows connected by a sleeping bag type case- I hope to try this soon.
