Tips for Maintaining and Cleaning Your Mattress
It’s easy to overlook mattress cleaning. Yet, mattresses naturally gather bacteria, allergies, scents, and stains. Having a routine to clean your mattress every 6 months is always a safe bet when it comes to staying clean and healthy. Thoroughly cleaning your mattress involves more than just getting rid of ugly stains. Most importantly, it helps in purging your bedroom of allergies, bacteria, and odors. We’ve gathered some information for you to use if you are unsure about how to maintain and clean your mattress.
Assembling your cleaning materials
Looking to clean and maintain your mattress? It’s important to assemble the right cleaning materials to get the job done effectively. From a vacuum cleaner to baking soda, learn what tools and supplies you need to keep your mattress in top shape. In most cases, you can clean a mattress with supplies or appliances you have laying around your house.
- Baking Soda
- A vacuum with an upholstery attachment or feature
- Delicate/ gentle clothing laundry detergent
- Cleaning clothes
- Cold water
Remove all bedding, sheets, and pillows and thoroughly wash
Remember to wash your sheets, pillowcases, and other bedding frequently in a washing machine with mild detergent to keep your mattress clean and maintained. Also remember to launder any mattress toppers, protectors, or pads you may have. This will enhance your quality of sleep and increase the lifespan of your mattress by assisting in the removal of dust, sweat, and allergens that can gather over time.
Thoroughly vacuum your mattress
Vacuum the edges and top of your mattress gradually while using the upholstery attachment on your household vacuum. You might want to use a grid pattern so you can remember where you’ve already vacuumed. Focus especially on the seams after vacuuming the flat areas, as these areas may accumulate dirt, dust, and insects.
Apply baking soda to your mattress
Sprinkle baking soda over the surface of your mattress, let it set for a few hours, and then vacuum it up with an upholstery attachment to naturally deodorize it. Without the use of harsh chemicals or pricey cleaners, this will help absorb odors and moisture, leaving your mattress feeling fresh.
Flip your mattress and re-do the process
To ensure that wear and tear is distributed evenly and to extend the life of your mattress, flip it regularly. To keep it clean and hygienic after flipping, perform the cleaning process including vacuuming, stain removal, and using baking soda on the flipped side. As a result, it will continue to provide a supportive and comfortable sleeping surface for years to come.
