Do you know that you spend about ⅓ of your life on your mattress, so it’s certainly something you should consider cleaning every once in a while!

Our mattresses attract lots of germs and grossness, from dead skin cells and dust mites to stains and body sweat. Due to all these, your mattress can be the harbor of all sort of lethal bacteria. Having knowledge of how to clean the mattress properly is very important if you want to go for DIY.

So, here are top 6 steps to clean the mattress at home:

Step 1: Make Your Mattress

Clean mattress at homeBefore you start with the mattress cleaning, it is vital to make your mattress. Start with stripping the bed and washing all pillowcases, bed sheet and throw blankets. Cleaning of your bed linen is something that should be done once a week on a high temperature to kill all the germs you bring at home after a day out. While the washing machine is doing its things, you can give attention to your mattress and clean it properly.

Step 2: Vacuum your mattress thoroughly

When you are hovering your mattress, always remember start at the top and move down words. For a heavy thorough hoover, I would recommend hoovering your mattress horizontally then going vertically to ensure that the entire mattress is being cleaned properly. For now, don’t worry about the other side of the mattress, simply focus on one side and the mattress edges.

 Step 3: Cleaning Mattress Stains

Stains that have sat on the mattress for a long time will increase the difficulty level for you while cleaning, as they have been bonded with the mattress fabric. Luckily, we have advice for all type of stains, so you can keep your mattress stain free and looking as good as always.

Use Enzyme Cleaner for Tougher Stains

For biological stains, enzyme cleaner is ideal. Simply spray enzyme cleaner onto a clean cloth and then blot the mattress stains, allowing your mattress to saturate your mattress. Once the solution is applied on the stains, leave it for 15 minutes, let it settle down and say Abracadabra. Then grab a cloth, blot the area to lift the stain.

#Pro Tip: Do not spray cleaning solutions directly onto your mattress, as this can be harmful to the material.

Step 4: Deodorize Mattress using Baking Soda

Although we do not tend to notice our bodily smells or those of our pets; after a long time these odors can build up and lead to a disgusting aroma. To get rid of these bad smells, sprinkle your mattress generously with baking soda and gently rub it with a scrubbing brush to help it penetrate the mattress fabric. Leave the baking soda to sit on your mattress for at least a couple of hours. The baking soda will not only absorb the odors but will also absorb the excess liquid from the removal process.

Once it has been left to work for a few hours, hoover the excess baking soda off and discover a mattress that smells fresh and clean!

Step 5: Flip it and Repeat

Step 6: Air It Out

Once done with a thorough cleaning of both the side of your mattress, our Bio-Clean experts recommend airing your mattress out. If possible, somewhere the mattress can get fresh air and UV sunlight. However, if you live in the city and moving your mattress outside is impossible. Simply open the windows and allow the sunlight to come in and the air out of your room.
