I love my mattress – and I think everyone feels the exact same way for theirs. But I must ask you something – do you take care of it? Do you clean it as often as it’s recommended? Do you make sure all impurities are removed? Most likely, your answer will be no. I know that it seems so annoying to have to add another thing to your chore list, however, if you want your mattress to stay comfy, clean, and not cause you any health issues then you must start taking proper care of it.
Your mattress is a huge magnet for impurities – dirt, dust, body liquids, and all sorts of harmful germs. Over time, when these things aren’t removed, they start to build-up (and the bacteria starts to breed). If you have ever experienced bed bugs or any sorts of allergies or skin irritation then chances are… you don’t clean your mattress.
But don’t worry – today, I will show you how to easily do it (without wasting too much time and money).
– Vacuum Your Mattress
One of the easiest ways to prevent impurities from getting deep into the mattress is by simply vacuuming it once every two weeks. Remove the sheets, slowly vacuum the surfaces then replace the sheets with clean ones.
– Rotate your mattress once a year
In order to keep the distribution of the padding and foam consistent, you must rotate the mattress once every six months.
This is a great way to ensure that it will last you a long time and you wouldn’t need to replace it!
– Remove stains – immediately
If you somehow stain your mattress or you spill something then make sure you get rid of that stain immediately so it doesn’t get soaked up by the foam. Blot it with a towel and use a bit of soapy warm water to clean the area. But don’t apply too much water since you don’t want to get the foam part wet (it won’t dry fast).
– Freshen up your mattress every once in a while
If you knew how easy freshening up your mattress really is you would already be doing it. All you need is baking soda and a vacuum cleaner. Remove the sheets then sprinkle baking soda all over the surface. I recommend you do this first thing in the morning so that the baking soda has time to absorb all the impurities and bad odour by the time you go to bed in the evening. Let the baking soda sit for at least 8 hours before you remove it with your vacuum cleaner.
