The mattress from the bed can get mildew, stained and it can keep unpleasant odors. See how to properly clean the stains from the mattress, to get rid of such mites and odors, bacteria and molds or other dangerous toxins.
The vacuum removes dust from mattress
Before you get to wash a mattress and to remove any stains from the fibers you must get rid of dust and fine particles of food waste (yes, we know you’re crunching chips at a movie and ate biscuits in bed), odor, smoke, etc.
Try to vacuum very good the mattress, if possible on both sides, to shoot inside all the dust and fine particles that can cause allergies.
Get rid of urine or blood stains on mattress
If the mattress was stained with blood or urine, you need an organic detergent to break down proteins or uric acid in the fabric.
Do not use hot water to remove organic stains because high temperature can cause the stain to enter more deeply into the fabric.
Mix one part cold water with two parts of baking soda and dab the stain. After rinsing the place well, allow to dry well, or even use a hairdryer to make sure that no moisture remains in the mattress.
Urine stains and odors are removed with baking soda, vinegar and water, but also a detergent for surfaces with baking soda and citrus aroma can be very useful.
Get rid of mildew stains
If your mattress was wet and moldy too long, you have to let it a few days to dry in the sun. You can speed up the process with an air heater or hairdryer, but take good care not to overheat the fabric.
Mix alcohol with warm water and use a sprayer over the surface. Allow to dry thoroughly, and then use a disinfectant like rubbing alcohol mixed with water.
