After a tiresome work day what we most need is some really good rest. But! Imagine when crashing on the bed, you see the mattress dirty. This would totally bug you off. And not to mention – completely ruin your sleep. Hence, it is quiet necessary to keep mattresses clean at all times.
Mattresses are susceptible to a lot of things - dirt, dust mites, stains and a lot of other things.
Mattresses may follow the same process of cleaning as that of upholstery. It is very important that you use proper cleaning products to go about with the cleaning process.
There are many techniques and listed below is an amalgamation of lot of these techniques.
Follow these basic steps:
- Vacuum the mattress/ use upholstery cleaner:
It is very important to vacuum the mattress or clean it with upholstery cleaner. You don’t want to leave dust particles on your mattress. These tiny dirt particles will not only cause any stain to blot more but also lead to unnecessary dust mites that will gather on the mattress once it is wet.
- Spray with citrus cleaner or vinegar in case of a stain:
Stains are stubborn! The chemical bonds which cause stains are quite strong; and to break these bonds, you need an equally strong chemical. You also need to make sure that, the chemical you use will not ruin your mattress. One perfect solution is a lime water mixture or vinegar. Just spray the solution on the stain and let it set for 5 minutes, next wipe it with a clean cloth and your stain will be gone.
- Your mattress needs a Suntan.
Some stains are caused due to too much of moisture, if you do not have a vacuum cleaner or a dryer than the best way to get rid of the excess moisture, mold and mildew is by taking the mattress out on a bright sunny day and let it dry out for a while.
- Apply baking soda and detergent to get rid of blood stains.
Blood stains are the most difficult stains to get rid off. Make a solution of 1 part baking soda and two parts of water and apply it over the stain and let it sit for 30 minutes after that make a solution of 1 tablespoon of liquid dish washing detergent with 2 cups of cold water and gently brush it over the affected area. Next, dry the area using a dry clean cloth.
