If you are having trouble falling asleep in the evening and can’t seem to find a comfortable position in bed, chances are you suffer from restless legs (RLS). Restless legs (syndrome) is a condition at which you experience a very annoying feeling in your legs. It is a neurological disorder many people do not know how to recognize.

The unpleasant feeling gives you the urge to move. Especially when the unpleasant feeling occurs every 10-60 seconds, which makes you become very restless. Especially at night just before bedtime, this can be very annoying. Let alone knowing how to solve this. In fact, can it actually be solved? Fortunately, something can be done about this and the solution is simpler than you think.

All you have to do is place a piece of soap under your fitted sheet at the foot of the bed. This sounds strange, but this really seems to help many people against restless legs.

“I often suffered from jittery legs, usually in a state of rest or sleep. My mother gave me the tip to put a piece of soap under the sheet. Since that day, I have not experienced any problems anymore,”


Someone else claims: “By putting an ordinary bar of soap at the foot of the bed, cramps may become less heavy. Cramp is an acidification in the muscles. To combat this acidification, a base (the counterpart of an acid) is needed. Soap is a base and this prevents acidification. It is worth the effort trying this out.”

Just put a bar of soap under your fitted sheet and you will soon feel relief. Who would have thought this solution would be that simple? Do you know someone with restless legs, do not forget to share this article with them, because it is great to help each other having a better night’s rest, right?
