Easy Mattress Cleaning Tips

When it comes to flu season we know we go in to full deep cleaning mode because no one likes being sick for a week right? At the beginning of fall we always do a deep clean similar to a spring cleaning list. We clean all the sheets and linens, wash the windows, disinfect all toys, and clean all the mattresses. 


Your mattress might not be something you think of when cleaning your home because you can’t throw it in a washer or wipe it down with windex, but it is an important part of keeping your home clean! We wanted to share some of my Easy Mattress Cleaning Tips to keep your mattress clean and disinfected!


6 Easy Mattress Cleaning Tips


1. Turn it seasonally – 

Unless your mattress manufacture suggests otherwise turn your mattress once a season. This will keep your mattress from forming dents from your body being in the same position every night, which would make more room for dirt to get trapped.


2. Grab the Vacuum – 

Once a week bring in your vacuum and give your mattress a once over to get any dust and grime that might have accumulated.

3. Use a Mattress Pad – 

Spills and accidents happen, make sure they don’t reach the mattress by grabbing a mattress pad that can soak up any spills.


4. Clean stains the right way – 

If you are dealing with stubborn stains that can’t be removed with water and detergent, it’s time to take aggressive measures. Start by spraying undiluted vinegar on the stain and let it act for 5 minutes. Next, sprinkle baking soda and allow it to act until bubbles emerging from the chemical reaction disappear completely. Vacuum the baking soda traces and, most likely, you’ll discover that the stain is gone. Otherwise, apply hydrogen peroxide on the stain (test its effect on the fabric in advance) with a sponge and rub in circular movements. If this procedure doesn’t work, don’t hesitate to seek the services of professional cleaners!

5. Keep bacteria at bay – 

To keep odour and bacteria at bay make sure you spray some disinfectant on your mattress about twice a week, Lysol works great and is approved to use on fabrics!


6. Zap out Odours – 

Sprinkle baking soda on your mattress and let sit for 30 minutes, then vacuum up the remains. The baking soda will absorb the extra odor and leave your mattress fresh and clean.


Proper mattress care is pretty easy and does not take much time when done on a regular basis.  Make mattress care and cleaning part of your general home maintenance and cleaning routine and you are well on your way to increasing the life and comfort of your mattress.


Happy cleaning
