Best Tips for Cleaning the Mattress

Do you know that dirty mattresses can spread diseases and are one of the most preferred placed to live by the domestic insects? It's scary, but it's true. We often forget that mattresses need to be cleaned, too. Dust, spilled liquids, smoke and all other kinds of dirt can be stuck in your mattress, making it a perfect environment for the bugs to come and make themselves at home. So you better get some materials and start cleaning your mattress. Here are some good tips to help you clean your mattress fast and easy.

What you will need:

  • a vacuum cleaning machine with a brush attachment
  • a sponge
  • white vinegar
  • absorbent towels
  • an upholstery cleaning product
Removing the dust:

Dust, dander and all other kinds of dirt can build up in your mattresses. That's extremely bad, if you have allergies. Get your vacuum cleaning machine and vacuum the dirt from you mattress with the brush attachment. If you are allergic, you can use mattress covers and vacuum clean more often.

Cleaning the mattress: 

You will need an upholstery cleaning shampoo or a mild detergent. Apply a bit of the detergent on a clean sponge and stir the surface of the mattress with it to form suds. Make sure you don't use a lot of water, because it will be very hard to dry your mattress afterwards. Get a clean sponge and wipe off the suds with it.
Removing stains and odours:

You have to be careful when you remove stains from your mattress. Make sure you are using non toxic detergents and you are not using a lot of water. Cleaning services Melbourne told us that baking soda, an absolutely natural product, can help you clean the stains and even deodorize the mattress. Sprinkle some baking soda mixed with water on the surface of the mattress. Leave it for a couple of minutes and wipe it of with a clean sponge or cloth.

Drying the mattress:

The worse part of cleaning you mattress is that drying it can take a lot of time. Don't try using a hair-dryer, it will only dry the surface, but the mattress will remain wet deep inside. The best way to dry it is to leave it dry on its own. You could also use absorbent towels to remove as much water as you can, but you won't be able to dry the whole mattress this way.
