    the opposite of making a bad

    How would you phrase the reverse process of making a bed when you remove the sheets?

    It's a "bed" not a "bad". I have often heard "stripping" in that context.

    Stripping the bed means only taking off the sheets/pillowcases/duvet cover etc. Changing the bed means taking them off and then replacing them with clean, fresh ones.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
