Taking care of your mattress can seem a bit confusing, as unlike your sheets and blankets, it isn’t like you can just throw it in the washing machine! That said, it is still important to care and clean your mattress to ensure comfort, hygiene, and longevity. In this first part, we will begin to cover common mattress care tips and tricks to help you get a more restful sleep.
To go back to the washing machine point, using a mattress protector is a viable way to protect against spills, stains, and even dust mites. This removable cover can be easily washed and protect your mattress against certain damage. Generally with cleaning, you should use a vacuum to remove dust and allergens, and for spills or stains, using a mild detergent to spot clean can be useful.
Other tips to consider to increase the longevity of your mattress is to rotate it every three to six months. What this does is help more evenly distribute wear and ensure one side does not become more worn than the other. If you have children especially, tell them to not jump on the bed to preserve its lifespan!
