What is the best way to freshen a mattress? You've found it! We'll walk you through the steps in simple terms. As well as pointers on how to clean stains and how to keep your mattress fresh
The best way to freshen a mattress is to provide a deep clean. We recommend deep cleaning your mattress every 6-12 months. Because mattresses are frequently used, it's a good idea to adopt a cleaning routine. A consistent routine will help keep your mattress fresh between deep cleans.
Let’s look into deep cleaning and how to make your mattress smell good.
You can deep clean your mattress by following these steps:
To clean stains,use a stain remover like an enzyme-based cleanser or a DIY cleaning solution. For this, combine 40 gms or 3 tbsp of baking soda and 200mls or 8 ounces of hydrogen peroxide with a drop or two of liquid detergent/ dish soap. You can use either cleanser for different kinds of stains.
The goal is to clean the stain without getting the mattress too wet. So, dip a cloth into your cleaning solution and then blot the stain with it. Then, get another cloth, dip it in clean water and blot the area clean.
You can clean stains during a deep clean as well. Do it before sprinkling the baking soda.
Don’t let that deep clean go to waste. Here’s how you keep your mattress fresh:
Mattress pads are protective covers for your mattresses. They absorb most fluids and make sure the stains do not reach the mattress. Also, you can easily remove, wash and reuse them.
If possible, clean your mattresses outside in the sun. You can also just leave it out to soak in the sun but don't forget to flip it.
Mix water with a few drops of your favorite oils in a spray bottle. Then spray onto a dry mattress to have your mattress smelling fresh.
Mattresses tend to have a bad odor when in damp rooms. Use a dehumidifier to absorb moisture from the air.
Mattresses can last a pretty long time. So, keep them clean to get a fuller use of their life span. In addition, a clean mattress will ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed when you sleep.
