No, we don't need a new mattress. We actually got a new mattress set last year and we're very happy with it. You may wonder why there're lumps in our bed. The truth is, we've added them.
Bob and I were both experiencing horrible leg cramps during the night. We tried upping our mineral intake, but that didn't seem to do the trick. The cramps were bad, like the kind you got when you were a kid, and some one wisely told you they were growing pains.
I remembered reading a newspaper article about adding a bar of soap to your bed, between the bottom fitted sheet and the mattress pad, to stop leg cramps. Since nothing else had worked, I told Bob we were going to give it a try.
Drum Roll, Please - It Worked
The bars of soap, I did two since we had plenty of soap and both of us were having the problem, have been below the sheets, for a month now, and I'm happy to report no leg cramps. I've decided not to remove them, as a test; because who wants more leg cramps, not us!
This is the soap I used,
but I'm certain, any type of soap will do the trick if you want to try it.
Thanks for stopping by, we enjoyed having you,
