How to Clean your Mattress




We are finally home with our new baby, but before his arrival we wanted to make sure the house was organized and cleaned.  We went room to room vacuuming, dusting and scrubbing all the surfaces we could see and I mean we did not miss a thing.  Cleaning and dusting are important to us (not for the obvious reasons) but because my husband and I suffer from environmental allergies.  If it gets too dusty we suffer through annoying symptoms.  Because of this we use allergy protectors for our pillows, stay on top of the dust mites and make sure we don’t miss a surface.

While we were going through our major cleaning sessions I started to wonder about our mattress.  I thought to myself about mattress cleaning and how it could be done. The mattress seemed to be the one surface I’ve never cleaned and I started wondering how dirty it was and how it was affecting our allergies.  Plus my toddler has had many accidents in bed and wondered about urine stains.  I mean we spend a good chunk of time lying in bed (well not so much now with the baby) and never once have I thought about mattress cleaning…. Ewww!  Luckily I came across how to clean a mattress and it has been a lifesaver.  I never really thought about the mattress before, but now that I know how to clean it effectively it will be a staple on the chore list. There is advice on how to rid your mattress of blood, urine and pet odors.  I feel so much better knowing my family is sleeping on clean mattresses! Mattress cleaning is a great way to preserve your mattress.  Mattresses are expensive so save your money and learn how to clean your mattress to avoid having to purchase a new because of a stain or odor issue.
