Your mattress is often the place in your home where you spend most of your time. For a very active person, space is used for sleeping. Sometimes, a person does not feel their best, which is why they spend a lot more time than their sleeping hours on their mattress. As everything else in our homes tends to accumulate dirt and become dirty over time, the same is the case with our mattresses. A question arises, how do you clean your mattress?
Sometimes people spill something on their mattresses. A mattress is too big to move around or throw in the washing machine for a wash. So, the way to clean the spilled substance from the mattress that most people choose is to throw a dry cloth or tissues over it to prevent it from seeping into the mattress foam. But this method does not clean the mattress, and overtime, the mattress becomes dirty and may even become infested with bed bugs. To prevent this, Churchill Dry Cleaners have a few suggestions that you could use to clean your mattress!

Here is how you can thoroughly clean your mattress:
Vacuum cleaning your mattress removes some of the deep-lying dirt in your mattress too. It can clean off the dirt so thoroughly that your mattress restores its colors – if it has gotten very dirty over time. To ensure that the vacuum cleaning is effective, you have to slowly and vacuum in circles to remove the dirt deep inside the foam of the mattress.
Spray a mixture of Vinegar & Water
Fill a spray bottle with a mixture of vinegar and water. Sprinkle the solution all over the mattress. Make sure you don’t soak the mattress with the solution. Only spray enough to cover the whole mattress with it lightly. Let it stay on the mattress for an hour or two. Afterward, dab your mattress with tissue to remove the excess vinegar from it. This solution can clean your mattress. If you accidentally soaked the mattress, you can use a blow dryer or a vacuum cleaner to get rid of it. However, it is best not to let this mistake happen.
Some mattresses, like memory foam, should not be wet at all. So soaking them in plain water or any solution can result in more harm than benefit.
Sprinkle Baking Soda
Baking soda helps to disinfect your mattress. Sprinkle it all over your mattress after removing the bed covers from it. Let the baking soda stay on the mattress for a few hours. Once the time is up, you can use a vacuum to remove all the baking soda from your mattress. This process will kill germs and disinfect your mattress and remove dirt from the mattress cover.
Stain In One Spot
Once you have cleaned the whole surface of your mattress, it is time to focus on some of the stains present on it. The best way to clean a stain is by using a stain remover. Different stain removers exist for different types of stains. In the case of biological stains like blood, vomit, urine, or sweat, you will need an enzyme cleaner.
For other stains, you can make a dish soap solution by mixing dish soap with water. You should apply it only on the stain to clean it off the mattress.
Dusting the Bed Frame
Often dirt accumulates below the mattress on the wood of your bed. It is necessary to clean it from time to time by removing your mattress. This will ensure that your mattress stays clean and avoid any other health issues. Cover your mattress before placing it on the wooden frame to ensure the dirt does not touch the mattress.
Sunlight kills bed bugs and germs
The best way to remove any smell or germs from your mattress is to put it in the sun. On an exceptionally sunny day, spray your mattress with a mixture of water, and vinegar, grab your mattress and place it on your balcony or near the window. Let it soak in the heat from the sun. This effectively removes any unpleasant smell from your mattress. It can also get rid of bed bugs. However, for thoroughly disinfecting your mattress, you have to show it to a specialist. These are some of the ways you can clean your mattress thoroughly without worrying about damaging its foam. A mattress is an expensive investment that might last a very long time with proper care. Churchill Dry Cleaners wants to make sure that its customers face no hassle when they want to clean household items.
