Anybody who has accidentally spilled something in bed has wondered at one point or another how to clean a mattress. When you buy a mattress, you’re most likely going to want to do whatever you can to protect your investment. Keeping your mattress clean is not nearly as difficult as you might imagine if you take a few key precautions and follow the simple steps below.

Mattress Stains: How to Prevent Them

Preventing stains from occurring in the first place is the best way to keep a mattress clean. It’s always best to use a mattress protector to prevent stains from occurring in the first place. As opposed to the old noisy vinyl ones that probably come to mind, there are now many options on the market that are made of soft fabric bonded to waterproof backing. There are even some that offer stain repellent, antimicrobial, and bedbug protection.

How to Clean a Mattress Stain

When stains appear on a mattress, the best way to clean it depends on how badly it has been soiled. Use a traditional spot-cleaning pen or gel stick if the stain is small. Make sure the area is completely dry before redressing your bed, and don’t use too much. If the stain is stubborn, you may need to repeat the entire process (including drying) more than once.

If the stain is larger, however, we recommend mixing powdered detergent with very little water – ideally three parts powder to one part water. The consistency should be similar to toothpaste. Apply the solution carefully to the stained area and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes before wiping clean with a slightly damp cloth. Blot again with a dry towel and let the area dry completely. Vacuum the excess powder away. You can also use a hair dryer (or open the windows in nice weather!) to ensure that the mattress is completely dry before redressing the bed.

Cleaning a memory foam mattress is similar to cleaning a traditional mattress. You should avoid using any commercial cleaning products since some can potentially damage the foam.

The process is easier if you have a water-based vacuum cleaner. All you need to do to make your mattress white again is follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The system includes a vacuum function and a washing function for different surfaces and is quite simple to use.

You can also have your mattress professionally cleaned, which will save you time and will ensure better care for the mattress.
