Want to know how to clean your mattress? You’re in the right place.
Your mattress is one of the most important things in your house. It gets used every day, all year. It absorbs sweat, tears, water, and other spills or stains. It also collects dirt, crumbs, dust, and other debris over time. So many hours of regular use means that your mattress can get pretty dirty very quickly. In order to keep your sleep healthy and your mattress in good condition, you’re going to want to clean your mattress regularly.
In addition to being a healthy thing to do, cleaning your mattress also makes good financial sense. Your mattress is an expensive investment in good sleep for many years. Helping your mattress last means knowing how to clean it thoroughly and regularly. A clean mattress lasts many years and will help you sleep easy for years to come.
Wash and Clean
Cleaning The Stains
Next you will want to prepare a small stain-cleaning solution to spot-clean your mattress. You can’t wash your entire mattress, as soaking it would cause mold or other long-term problems. Begin by putting a small amount of dish soap into a bucket of cool water. Take your rag and dip it into the stain remover. Dap and blot your cleaner onto stains gently. Use as little soap as possible and blot until the stain lifts from your mattress.
Extra Protection Tips
As a final layer of protection over your mattress, layer a mattress protector and a freshly washed fitted sheet on top of your mattress. This will protect it from future dust or dirt and help extend the overall life of your mattress. You should deep clean your mattress every three months to ensure maximum health of your mattress.
You should also check with your manufacturer to see how often you need to flip or rotate your mattress. Most mattresses need to be flipped every six months in order to prevent stains or sagging. It’s important to regularly clean and flip your mattress so that it stays in good condition for a long time.
