How to Clean Your Mattress

DIY Mattress Cleaning

Spring Cleaning: Don't Forget This Task!

You spend about one-third of your day on your mattress. If your mattress isn’t clean, that means you are spending eight hours on something covered in dead skin, sweat, dust mites, dirt, and even tiny insects. Unfortunately, don’t provide the maximum protection your mattress needs from becoming the home of these unwanted additions. Read on to learn how you can clean your mattress with supplies you probably already have.

How to Clean Your Mattress

You likely already have everything you need at home to clean your mattress:

  • Baking soda
  • Vacuum
  • Optional: Essential oils
  1. Take off all the bedding. Toss it into the washing machine while you work. Wash at the highest temperature possible for the fabric to help kill germs and some bugs.
  2. Vacuum your entire mattress. Be sure to get the top, sides, and underneath the bed. If you have help, lift the mattress and vacuum in between the mattress and boxspring.
  3. Sprinkle baking soda on top of your mattress. If you have an essential oil you want to use to make your bed smell great, premix it with the baking soda and use a strainer to shake it over the mattress. Leave the baking soda on the mattress until your bedding is ready again.
  4. Vacuum the baking soda. Then re-make your bed.

How Often You Should Clean Your Mattress

You should clean your mattress at least every six months. That’s because if you wait too long in between cleanings, you might even find yourself feeling sick. Dust mites can cause sick-like symptoms, like irritated eyes, runny or itchy nose, sore throat, breathing problems, skin rash, and asthma problems. And that’s just dust mites, alone!
