Vacuum your mattress: On your monthly home cleaning agenda with the vacuum cleaner, this New Year, don’t just limit it to the furniture. Consider vacuuming your mattresses too. Consider using a high powered vacuum cleaner with a solid HEPA filter system. Before cleaning, ensure that all the bedding is removed from the mattress and hat each and every side and surface is meticulously cleaned.
Place it under the Sun: Every month or two, make it a point to place the mattress under the sun. This helps to disinfect your mattress from allergens like dust mites, dust, pollen, dander. This will also help dry the foam and take away the moisture which causes allergens.
Clean the stains: Remove the stains as quickly as possible. In case of blood spots, urination over it, spilled drinks or any stain caused, quickly remove it off by spraying hydrogen peroxide to the stained area, then letting it dry for about 5-10 minutes, then sprinkling baking soda over it, letting it dry for several hours before brushing it off. This will certainly help reduce the stain or even let it disappear fully. However, if the stain still persists, consider using dry suds.
Clean it with hot water: Consider cleaning your mattresses with hot water, of 130 degrees Fahrenheit, for about 2--30 minutes and then wash it off with normal tap water and let it get dry, This will help kill dust mites.
Keep your pets and teddy bears off the mattress: Making furry pets, like dogs, cats, rabbits and stuffed furry toys, sleeping on your bed, invite dust and dirt with them. Consider keeping stuffed toys on a shelf or provide any other space than your the beds, and, a different sleeping space for pets.
