Tips for Cleaning Up Your Mattress

Even when you don’t feel like you get enough sleep, you still spend plenty of time on your mattress.

Even when you don’t feel like you get enough sleep, you still spend plenty of time on your mattress. When you take the time to clean your sheets, blankets, and bedding, you’ll feel much more comfortable at night and feel much more refreshed in the morning. Here are some helpful tips for cleaning up your mattress.

Get Rid of Allergens

Spring allergy season can be miserable enough even before you leave your bedroom. The first step in cleaning up your mattress is to get rid of any allergens on it. Dust is just going to be a problem, but luckily, there are methods of reducing the amount of dust in your room and on your bed. Start by stripping off the sheets, along with the pillows, comforters, and anything else you have on your bed. Once the mattress is bare, vacuum it. Then you will want to move the mattress aside so you can reach the box spring. Don’t forget to flip your mattress over so you can get the underside, too.  

Lift Stains

What stains are on your mattress? Depending on what it is, you might need to try a different approach. Steam, cold water, and hydrogen peroxide are all going to be your best weapons. Although you might be tempted to do, don’t use chlorine bleach on anything made of fabric. If you do, you’ll just end up ruining the fabric. Try any sort of gentle cleaning solution, and move onto steam if that doesn’t work. If steam doesn’t work, use the hydrogen peroxide. Just be sure to ventilate the room, and don’t put the bed back together until everything is fully dry.  

Eliminate Smells

You’ll also want to get rid of any lingering smells, which can be just as unsettling as the sight of a stain on your furniture. For this part of the process, vinegar and baking soda are the best solutions. But make sure that you don’t use them simultaneously. They’ll just neutralize each other.
