When I got married, I remember thinking that it was time to learn how to fold fitted sheet (NOT because I was now a wife, but because I had a ton of new sheets from our registry!). I was determined to learn how to properly fold a fitted sheet. I never truly strived for excellence in this area, so therefore, my fitted sheet always looked like a crumpled mess.
And don't get me started on changing the fitted sheet. I would try to time it so that my husband was in the room at the same time so that he could help lift the corners up off the mattress. I would also enlist his help for putting the sheet back on as well.
We went through periods of time with my son's crib sheet where we were changing it almost every night. Changing a crib mattress sheet is not an easy task. You have to lift up the entire mattress in order to get the job done.
Recently, this has all changed. I have been using QuickZip sheets for several months on our bed and my son's bed, and they are truly revolutionary. Each sheet has a base, which stays put on the mattress at all times. Our king bed sheet also has a base. When it comes time to change a sheet, you simply zip it off. It is so easy to take off, and then to put on again. And the sheet is a perfect rectangle. It does not have bunchy, impossible to fold corners.
This two-piece fitted sheet system stays put. The sheet comes in several patterns and designs, and also in a super soft minky fabric. We are currently using the minky fabric since it is winter and we are occupying the space in our parents basement while we save for our new home.
The QuickZip technology comes in a crib size, twin, twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King. This sheet makes it easy for ANYONE of any age to change their bed sheets. It's perfect for anyone who loathes the task. I quite enjoy it now - zip on, zip off! Once my son is a little older, he will easily be able to change his own sheets.
I recommend staring with a starter pack for yourself or your kids. The cribs sheets are 200 thread count and the Luxe Starter Pack (for a size twin - cal king bed) are a super soft 400 thread count.
This QuickZip crib package comes with the base sheet and the three zip on sheets. This is the number one item that I recommend to friends who are expecting babies.
If you want to give a friend of yours the ultimate wedding gift or shower gift, one that will really make them go "wow, this is an AWESOME product", then QuickZip is that gift. This is my new go-to gift and also my forever chosen linens for the beds in my home. You will LOVE this product!
