Is it time to clean your mattress? Does your mattress feel like it needs to be freshened up and cleaned? There are a number of methods you can use to not only clean your mattress, but also keep it smelling fresh. Once you have given your mattress a good cleaning, everything will smell and feel great.
How To Clean Your Mattress
Cleaning mattresses should never be a complex process. Begin by removing the mattress covers, bed skirts, and beddings. The next thing is to lift the box springs and mattress off your bed and systematically dust and vacuum.
Don’t forget to wipe down the floorboards and wall behind your bed. After laying the mattress back, get a good cleaning product or create your own special formula. A great DIY mattress cleaner uses a cup of baking soda with about four essential lavender oil drops in a mason jar. Simply pour the mixture in the jar, put the lid back on, and shake the jar. Your new mattress cleaner is now ready to use.
How To Clean Your Mattress – DIY
To clean your mattress naturally, use a kitchen strainer to sprinkle the mixture with the baking soda across the mattress and leave it to sit. It can be left for a whole hour or so, a time you can use to clean the bed skirts and beddings.
Using an upholstery attachment, the mattress can then be vacuumed. Using baking soda helps in drawing up deep dirt and moisture while deodorizing the mattress, leaving it fresh and clean. The faint lavender scent left behind by the drops of the essential oil adds a refreshing touch.
How To Clean Mattress Stains
In cases of unidentified mattress stains, spray it using a citrus cleaner or equivalent, letting it settle for six minutes. Blot the area with an absorbent cloth without rubbing.
For blood stains, apply some hydrogen peroxide to the mattress, blotting it as the bubbling takes place. All the stain might not be removed, but it will be lessened.
To remove stains from colored drinks, use vinegar or citrus cleaner. Apply any of them onto a white clean cloth or a spray. Rubbing alcohol can also be applied on the mattress.
