Keeping Your Mattress Clean

Keeping Your Mattress Clean

One of the hardest things to do around the house is to keep your mattress clean.

One of the hardest things to do around the house is to keep your mattress clean. At first glance, it might seem simple, but we all know what can happen to our beds on a day to day basis. If you like to snack in bed, or have a tasty beverage, even if it is just water, then you would probably appreciate a refresher course on how to keep your mattress clean. 

What Do You Need to Clean?

You might not notice right away, but mattresses can get pretty gross. Dead skin cells, dust, and pet dander can all gather there, you might also find fungus or mold, depending on how badly the bed needs to be cleaned. Keeping a sheet on it can reduce the ugly stains on the mattress itself, but that fitted sheet needs to be kept clean, as do all the blankets, sheets, and pillowcases you need to use every day. Mold loves the sweat people leave behind after a night in bed, and they use it to thrive. Don’t let these unwelcome pests treat you like that

Actually Cleaning It 

Although the washer, dryer, and hot water are your best weapons against grime and sweat and other sources of yuck on your mattress, another contender is the vacuum. Spring cleaning season is almost upon us, and it’s a good time to give your vacuum cleaner a solid workout. Anyone with allergies in your family will be more sensitive to dust and dirt, which means you will have to clean more often – beyond the simple fact that it will look more aesthetically pleasing. Clean out the vacuum’s filter before every use to ensure you get the best results. Plus, make sure that all of the upholstery attachments are doing their jobs, and aren’t clogged. 

Other Recommendations

After vacuuming, some spot cleaning is required. All the same, avoid leaving moisture stains behind – this is much trickier than it sounds. It’s tempting to use bleach to disinfect your mattress, but actually doing this would be a bad idea. Anti-bacterial sprays are much easier to use and won’t leave behind unsightly stains that you will then have to clean up again
