We spend 6-9 hours a day on our mattress – all this time, dust, dead skin particles, fat and sweat from our body penetrate inside. It is noticeable from the outside – yellow spots appear, but invisible impurities are even more dangerous – mites that multiply inside.
Even if you do not have allergies, it is worth cleaning the mattress regularly – not only from the outside. We recommend having a “bathing day” for your mattress every few months – and now we’ll give you some tips on how to do it best.
How to clean the mattress
Use a vacuum cleaner
The easiest way to clean your mattress from house dust and dead skin particles is to simply vacuum the mattress. Use the upholstery nozzle, forget about the side edges of the mattress, and if possible, about the bed frame – this is also where dust can accumulate and get inside the mattress. To check if you have done well, tap the tip of the vacuum cleaner head against the mattress from time to time – you will notice that dust particles “bounce”.
Get rid of stains
An excellent way to protect the mattress from stains is a special mattress cover with a waterproof surface. It is easy to wash and does not allow any kind of liquids to get onto the mattress upholstery. But if such a nuisance appears, use special stain removers, and then, after the stain has come off, wipe the place with warm water.
How to remove yellow stains from a mattress
Yellow stains on the mattress are caused by sweat and grease and are almost impossible to avoid. Let’s see how you can get rid of them.
Mix hydrogen peroxide and warm water in a ratio of 1: 1, add a little (about a quarter of a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid), pour the resulting mixture into a spray bottle.
Moisten the stain with the resulting solution, wipe with a terry towel and wait half an hour;
Spray the stain with clean water, dry well to remove all traces of cleanser, repeat the procedure to completely remove all traces;
Then leave the mattress to dry.
