Project squeaky clean: how to clean a mattress

Pick a sunny weekend and take each mattress out of each room, one by one. Start with the biggest mattress first and work your way down to the smallest. This way you take care of the biggest job first, so the rest won’t feel so tiresome. Follow these three simple steps to clean each mattress in your home:

1. Strip your bed of all linen and toss in the wash. Now vacuum the mattress thoroughly using the upholstery attachment.

2. Spot-clean any stains and allow to dry. Sprinkle the entire mattress with bicarbonate of soda and leave for 24 hours (outside in daylight hours if possible).

3. Vacuum again and deodorize by spraying with white vinegar. Don’t forget to use a mattress protector to protect yourself from dust mites and your mattress from potential stains. We like Protect-A-Bed mattress protectors.
