Everything in your house requires maintenance and cleaning over time. That includes your mattresses. Here are some tips to ensure your mattress will stand the test of time.
You can buy protective layers which will ensure your mattress is cleaner. It is easier to wash stains out of mattress covers and pads rather than from the mattress itself. You can wash these layers and covers in most washers and dryers. These layers can also be barriers against moisture, dust and dirt.
You can avoid spills and stains by addressing them immediately and properly. Once a spill occurs, blot it dry quickly then follow it with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Don’t soak your mattress with the mixture, so make sure to wring out the cloth before treating the stains.
Maintaining a mattress clean is really simple, but most people tend to ignore these tips. You can also flip the mattress twice a year to prevent it from sagging. The easy way to remember flipping it is to do it at the beginning and end of Daylight Savings.
