How Do You Keep a Mattress Clean?
Even though you spend a considerable amount of time laying on your mattress, you likely don’t think about the impact that has on it. Aside from the normal wear and tear that you can expect, getting a mattress dirty through normal use is an unfortunate problem that we all must face. Like any other piece of furniture in your home, cleaning your mattress properly will ensure it provides the most comfortable experience possible while increasing how long it stays supportive for you. In this article, we will look at some easy ways you can keep a mattress clean.
Using a Vacuum
Most vacuums will come with an upholstery attachment that can be used to clean curtains and furniture around your home that are prone to collecting dust. Fortunately, this attachment can also be used to rid your mattress of dust and shed skin cells that may be settling into it. Run the vacuum over the surface of the bare mattress a few times with slow strokes while you clean your sheets to pick up any unwanted nasties that may be hiding out.
Applying a Deodorizer
As you sleep, sweat, oils and dirt will begin to accumulate on your mattress and seep through your sheets. When left alone, this can create an unpleasant smell that will be noticeable any time you are laying on your mattress. To remove this smell, sprinkle baking soda directly onto the mattress surface then lightly rub it in. After 10 minutes vacuum it to remove the granules and your mattress will effectively be deodorized.
One of the easiest ways to protect your mattress is to add a barrier between your body and the mattress itself. No matter what size your mattress may be, there are dedicated mattress protectors available to accommodate them. This will help limit the chances of skin cells, sweat or other liquid sources from penetrating into the mattress, making future clean up easier.
