Preparation for Cleaning a Mattress
Strip the sheets, pillowcase and comforter from the mattress and wash them in the washing machine in separate loads and according to the directions printed on the label. Start vacuuming the debris off the mattress’s surface while they are washing. Especially along the seams and in the divots where it is going to gather, make certain to methodically vacuum the sides, top, and back with the vacuum’s hose and upholstery attachments to clear away the buildup.
Treatment for Mattress Odors
From sweat and other substances, mattresses naturally develop odors. Generously sprinkle backing soda over the mattress’s surface in order to eliminate any existing odors or stop them from generating. Combine 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oils to the baking soda to add some fragrance. Allow the baking soda to work for at least 30 minutes. Vacuum particles in like manner as when you removed the initial debris after the time concludes.
Dissolving Mattress Stains & Spots

Lightly agitate the mixture and leave it for 5-10 minutes after applying the past to the affected areas. Vacuum the remnants and follow it with a damp cloth blot away any lingering residues. In a squirt bottle, mix 1 tsp mild dish soap and 2 cups hydrogen peroxide to remove any more serious stains. Administer the solution to the stain and leave it for 10 minutes, blot the area well.
