I was on the free section of my local craigslist and I noticed that people post mattresses on there regularly. Would tying those to my walls make my room soundproof? what about box springs?

You want to strap a bunch of used mattresses to the walls of your bedroom?

Why not just roll around naked in medical waste while you're at it.

You'll be covering your walls in people's used sex platforms!

I'm aware of the fact that its a used matress. I would spray the shit out of them with disinfectant. BUT WOULD IT WORK

You're right,I guess I'm wrong and lining the walls of your room with cotton mattresses soaked in years of piss,blood,semen,and dead skin cells is completely reasonable.

Well, yes, but it would be disgusting!

Pros versus cons man! It just doesn't work!

It's okay, they'll be on the walls. All the germs will fall off. It'll be like the Titanic, but for bacteria.

That's just strange. I think it's gross and having walking into your room/house everyday to see your wall of matresses would just be wierd.
#16
Yes, they work.

A better option, though, is to use a bunch of mineral fiber acoustic tiles, like you see in the ceilings of offices and whatnot.
Nope, no sig here.

Did you know that mattresses could weigh an extra 20kgs due to dead skin?

You do now!

In europe, we cover the mattresses and wash the cover.

Well isn't Europe just the best This is normal, but the dirt/saliva etc still goes through the sheets and makes stains n such.

I would like to know how exactly you tie a mattress to a wall.

Also, at the idiot that thinks mattress covers are an exclusively European product.Most people have mattress covers,but that doesn't stop all the filth from soaking into the mattress.

A thin layer of cotton fiber can't really do much against the filth producing marvel that is the human body.

There's nothing you can do to soundproof a room, whatever you try it wont work.

My old band lined a shed with mattresses and used it as a practice area, it does muffle the sound quite nicely, but it won't completely get rid of it.

Oh, and it gave us all AIDS.

Do you people not cover your mattresses in a sheet before sleeping on them?


Unless your sheets are made from lead, I'd suspect they don't stop your various juices from infecting the mattress.
