While you likely make sure that your bed sheets are cleaned regularly, how much attention do you actually give your mattress when cleaning around the house? Because you spend so much time in bed, it’s likely that you won’t be as comfortable on a dirty mattress as you could be on a clean one. These 3 tips can help keep your mattress clean and extend the life of your mattress.
Invest in a Mattress Protector
In most cases, taking preventative action is the easiest way to keep your mattress clean. Many homeowners will achieve this by investing in a mattress protector to eliminate the chances of dust and spills penetrating into the material. Most mattress protectors can be removed and machine washed to keep your bed clean and comfortable all year long.
Air It Out
If you are in an area that allows you to move your mattress outdoors for a period, you may consider doing it any time it seems like it may need a refresh. Exposure to outdoor air and UV rays can assist in the elimination of bacteria naturally. If it’s not possible to drag your mattress outside, open a window and position it to receive the same attention.
Don’t Eat in Bed
One of the easiest ways to invite bacteria and other nasties into your bed is by eating food in it. Leftover crumbs can also be an attractant to a wide variety of pests that will, in turn, further dirty your mattress. To be safe, it is recommended that you only consume foods in your kitchen where they can easily be cleaned or contained.
