Want to know something positively disgusting? The average person sweats out about 1/2 a pint of perspiration each and every night.
Seeing as how we spend almost 1/3 of our entire life lying on a mattress – one would think it would stand alone atop of our list of regular cleaning duties.. but lets face it, we rarely think about cleaning the mattress.
Mattresses can harbor spills, stains, dirt, dust, dust mites and worse – so, maintaining a clean mattress is important for several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that your partially clothed body is lying on top of it with only a sheet separating you.
Unclean mattresses can be a home for fungal spores, bacteria, dust mites and unpleasant odor circulating around the room.
Despite having bed sheets and covers, the mattress could still collect dusts and dirt over time. Stains, water marks, even dust mites and bed bugs could be present too. We use our mattresses every night that’s why we have to maintain it clean, fresh, sanitized and in good condition.
According to Melissa, here are a couple of ways to clean your mattress.
It’s important to vacuum the mattress as it removes the dusts and dead skin cells on it but make sure to clean your vacuum tools first to avoid transferring dirt to your mattress.
#2. Deodorize Your Mattress.
Every night we make about half a liter of sweat. Deodorize your mattress since we sleep on it daily. it absorbs all our sweats and perspiration. Sift a baking soda on your mattress and let it stay for 30 minutes then vacuum it afterwards.
#3. Use Wet Cool Cloth to Remove Light or Small Stains
To remove stains like sweat, vomit, blood, urine and other body fluids. You must clean it as soon as possible. Liquid stains must be cleaned by cool wet towel because heat sets in stains. Don’t rub the stain in a circular motion as it will just spill the stain all over; clean it by patting or pressing it.
#4. Use Mixtures for Stains That are Difficult to Remove
By mixing salt, baking soda and water, a fresh stain can be removed easily. Just make a paste of equal parts and rub it on the stained area. Brush it off after 30 minutes then use a cool wet towel on it.
If it didn’t work, you can try hydrogen peroxide and soap then put it on the stained area of the bed. Brush it on and leave it for five minutes then use a wet cool towel to remove excess moisture.
Remember to let the mattress dry after doing all these techniques to avoid molds from building up your mattress. Don’t sleep on the mattress until it is completely dry, use an electric fan to dry it if needed.

Steam cleaning is steaming the mattress to kill dust mites while deep cleaning is wetting the mattress and getting rid of the moisture.
When you think you have bed bugs, call a professional to remove this. The best way also to take care of your mattress is to buy a mattress protector; this will help save your mattresses from being soiled.
All the tips Melissa have shared in the video are very informative and effective, she even showed her mattress which they have been using for four years already but it totally looks brand new! I can’t wait to try this at home.
