5 Tips to Clean and Freshen Up Your Mattress

Most people probably don’t consider cleaning their entire mattress. It is a large and cumbersome thing, and its not like you can put it in the washing machine. However, there are some things you can do to clean and freshen it up.

1)  Rotate your mattress every six months or year to keep the padding impact and foam use even across the mattress. If you have a pillow top mattress, you can only rotate your mattress 180 degrees. But if you have a standard mattress, you can rotate as well as flip the mattress over.

2) To cut down on the potential for stains, use a waterproof mattress pad and wash it regularly with your sheets in a washing machine. Look for a mattress pad that is waterproof and stops dust and dust mites.

4) Vacuum the top of your mattress. This will actually suck out most of the dust mites and nasty dust mite leftovers (corpses and poop). Make sure that the nozzle of your vacuum cleaner is clean and slowly vacuum all of the crevices and the surface to eliminate the little buggers. Its kind of nasty but this is a major step in cleaning your mattress. If you use a waterproof, sealed mattress pad this is a quick and easy step.

5)  If your mattress smells like hobos have been sleeping on it, you can sprinkle about a 1/4 cup of baking soda that has been mixed with 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oils (lavender is a great choice) all over the surface of your mattress. Let this sit for about 30 minutes and vacuum it up with a clean hose attachment or nozzle on your vacuum cleaner.

    Thanks for the great tips. Our mattress actually has a bit of mould on the bottom, I’m not sure if this is a health issue or not. I am definitely going to try the baking soda and essential oils though.

    Love him or loathe him, you can’t argue with PR king Beattie. He’s the face of advertising and clients love that shit. No cunt knows who Steve Henry is outside our little world, but people know who Trevor Beattie is. Clients love that shit. Also, his vast array of work that’s been loved by the masses…

    Nothing demonstrates the quietly determined marching forward of time like the daily changes of an infant. My Middlest, now 7.5, held in my arms for the morning nursing session looked up at me and I was nearly paralyzed by a fear I would miss something in my babies’ lives if I didn’t slow things down a bit. That led to many changes in my life, but sadly, time continues to march along just as quickly. But at night, when they softly snore under their blankets and I pull them close for a snuggle, they are still my babies. Thank you for writing what is in all our hearts…
