No matter how careful you are, there are times when you need to spot clean your mattresses. Whether you’re a fan of eating in bed or you have a youngster who has occasional accidents, spot cleaning is important. Here’s how to do it right:
Do you vacuum your mattress? It's a great way to keep the dust and small particles off the surface. It's also an excellent way to spot clean if you have a dry spill.
Consider those pesky crumbs from that late night snack you ate while watching a movie in bed or the dog hair and pet dander from letting your furry friend sleep on the bed. Instead of sweeping these things up with your hand, use the attachment on your vacuum cleaner to suck them up. This will prevent them from rubbing into the fibers of your mattress, which can happen even if you have a sheet on the bed. Tiny particles will work their way down through the fabric, compromising the cleanliness of the mattress surface.
If you have a stain from a liquid that the vacuum can’t get up, be careful when using any cleaner to spot clean the area. Don't use harmful detergents, soaps or harsh scrubbing rags to get it out. A simple vinegar and water solution with a soft rag are gentle enough to get out most stains without damaging your mattress.
