Keeping Your Mattress Clean and Fresh
Debris, dead skin cells, moisture, and oil from your body can all make their way onto your mattress when you sleep. Whether you have allergies or not, it is a good idea to clean and tidy your mattress on a regular basis.
Even the best mattress should be cleaned at least once every six months. Continue reading to learn how to totally clean a mattress of any stain and what products to use.
First off, you need a vacuum cleaner to ditch the dust. Go through the mattress’s sides and top, as well as as much into the bed frame as you can reach.
Apply gentle pressure to the fabric with the vacuum tip to draw out dirt particles beneath its surface. Then, use the crevice device to get inside the quilting. Vacuum slowly along the welting’s edge and where any straps are attached.
The next step is to remove all bedding, including pillow covers and the mattress protector. All bedding should be washed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Also, if you have a duvet cover, make sure to wash it.
Go through the mattress with a cloth steamer if you have one. Hold the nozzle as close to the material as possible without causing the steamer to drip. Dust mites lingering near the surface will be killed by the steam.
Finally, begin removing any visible stains. The basic way to get rid of them is to use a deep carpet cleaner designed to remove grimy stains. To apply it, lightly spray the stain remover and dab it in from the outside edge moving slowly to the center point.
When the stain has been removed, rinse the area with a washcloth. Remove any trace of the cleaning solution by blotting the affected area with a clean rag and allowing the mattress to dry completely.
If you have a commercial steam cleaner that delivers detergent while sucking up blotches from your furniture, use it on your mattress as well. It will do a great job of cleaning and removing moisture from the mattress, allowing it to dry faster.
