Right now he is wearing both the tab diaper type and pull up at night. He can still wriggle out of them just enough to make them ineffective. We do slightly better during the day. My floors are covered with canvas drop clothes and my laundry is ridiculous. I dread this winter and additionally washing a blanket every morning. I would appreciate any suggestions.

You mentiond that he is using both the tab diaper type and a pull up. In my experience, the tab diaper type come off too easily even with pull ups over them. I used to use 2 Depends adult pull ups for night time. And these 2 together seemed to work. Hope you can find something that works for your husband. Take care

Mom has a hospital bed with a gel mattress. Her pull-ups soak through. She sleeps on an mattress pad that's waterproof. ($13 Bed Bath & Beyond) I don't use bed linens anymore because I was washing them every day. Every morning, I use a disposable Clorox disinfectant wipe to wash down the gel pad. I launder her nightgowns and the mattress pad every day.

I'm pretty sure you can buy a vinyl gel mattress topper to fit whatever size bed he sleeps in. Then you won't have sheets to do.

Mom sleeps under a washable quilt. It seldom gets wet, but I have a matching one so I can wait a while to wash the soiled one.

These briefs hold over a quart of liquid. If he's losing more than THAT at night, yikes.

If it's because he's taking them OFF during the night, try these one-piece zip-up-the-back PJ's. $42 (Buy two pair; one to wear while one is laundered.)

Good luck. I hope at least one of these is helpful.
