I used a flat bedsheet to recover the under side of the boxsprings of a bed. My cat had torn the thin covering on the underside of the boxsprings and was hiding in it when I wanted to put her outside. To solve the problem, I measured the area that needed covering, removed the torn material, measured & cut the size needed from the bedsheet. Then used a staple gun to secure it in place. It works great. My cat no longer has a good place to hide.
