The makers claim that "it is incredibly cozy and comfortable, covered with a breathable fabric designed to move moisture away from your body, and filled with fiber which is hypoallergenic and provides exceptional comfort and support." And it was.
But after less than a year of blissful snoozing, the fiber filling had retreated from the pressure points - which, perversely enough, all seemed to have fallen upon corners of the stuffing compartments.
No commercial cleaner or linen service would admit to having heard of a Fiberbed, it was far too bulky to fit into any publicly accessible dryer for the forced air and clean sneakers pummelling technique, and as I am not physically vigorous just now, my personal attempts to shake the Fiberbed did neither of us any good at all. I retreated in considerable disorder.
After a while, I realized that what I needed were pin-studded paddles that could pierce the covering without damaging it, and allow me to fluff and redistribute the fiberfill inside.
Yes, I had out-thought a large, physically superior bag of fluff. Definitely a photo opportunity.
Step 1: Materials & Equipment
Two shrunken, dried-up kitchen sponges
10" of wide elastic
Several dozen straight pins with flat heads
Very light corrigated cardboard or heavy card stock
Graph paper (optional)
Step 2: Paddle bases
Next trace the sponges on the cardboard and cut out three for each sponge. It doesn't matter if you run out of graph paper, so long as you get one shape for each sponge. This will provide a guide for spacing the pins, without the hassle of measuring or marking.
Use hot glue to make cardboard-sponge-cardboard sandwiches.
Whee! We have reinvented foamboard. With graph paper on top.
