Take advantage of the sun and fresh air
Whenever it is easy – if you can once a quarter – pull your mattress outside on the balcony to be under the sun and well ventilated. Moreover, it is often good to open the bedroom windows, pull the curtains and let the sun bathe your mattress. The more frequently you ventilate your mattress, the more easily you remove odors, and let the sunlight’s beneficial functions act as a natural disinfectant. Even if you can not pull it out if you can you should daily ventilate it for 30 minutes, this helps to remove moisture, especially during the winter, which is the main cause of the bad smell of your mattress.
Cleaning with baking soda
When you change sheets, the time you have completely uncovered your bed and you pull out the cover layer, sprinkle baking soda on the surface of the mattress. Let the soda for a couple hours and then thoroughly clean your mattress with a vacuum cleaner. Just like your fridge, baking soda acts as a magnet for odors.
You can even – before you start this process – mix it with some spices you like, like dried lavender or vanilla powder, so while removing the odor you give a pleasant smell to your mattress.
Turn your mattress upside down
Every six to eight weeks it is a good idea to turn your mattress upside down, to ensure greater comfort. At first reverse the section of the head with this of the bottom and then turn the layer on the back side, continuing the same process.
Be sure to carefully lift the handles which are stitched on the side of the mattress, because in most cases the handles rip very easily. Many mattress companies give instructions on how often you should turn your mattress upside down and how.
When you wash your sheets, do so at the highest possible water temperatures, always checking the washing instructions on the labels of the linen – so you can kill the microorganisms growing on the bed sheets. Iron well, for the same reason between the layers, make sure it is completely dry.
Occasional cases …!
Accidents of course, are always inevitable. Sometimes your drink can be poured in a layer, your mattress can be soiled by a pet or suffer the consequences of a bad dream that your child will dream one evening .
For this you should act as quickly as possible!
The first step is to remove as much moisture as possible with a dry towel. Push the towel on the mattress to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. Once you are sure that you have removed the liquid, spread baking soda on the stain and follow the procedure described above. The soda will help remove odors and absorb moisture. For a large stain, let the baking soda at least overnight.
Cover your mattress with a cotton cover that will help protect the mattress from the smell of your body (sweat, etc). You can wash it easily, so you keep your mattress cleaner and always fresh.
