The mattress is one of the most important parts of the house. It allows us to rest and sleep peacefully after a long and arduous day. Therefore, it is necessary to keep it clean and comfortable. Follow these simple tips and the result will be great.
Keeping our home clean is essential for a good quality of life. With the passage of time and constant use, the accumulation of dust and mites is inevitable, especially in the bedrooms and on the mattress.
To have good hygiene, you should change the sheets every week, ventilate the room at least 5 minutes before making the bed, shake pillows and sheets well, and vacuum the mattress weekly.
Sweat is one of the main causes of the appearance of stains and humidity on the mattress, and in the case of the smallest, urine. There must be a quick solution because, not only can it damage the quality of the mattress, but also produce countless bacteria that are bad for health.
As in cosmetics, there are also home remedies to clean the mattress: you can use lemon and water, ideal for removing stains and odors; bicarbonate, which together with water, generates a paste that is quite effective in removing stains on the mattress; white vinegar on a damp cloth to rub on the stained area; hydrogen peroxide, the most effective remedy against blood stains; or liquid detergent, rubbing in the area with a damp cloth, leave it to act and then clean only with water.
Regarding daily cleaning for your maintenance, it is advisable to vacuum the mattress surface when you change the sheets to help the dust not accumulate, facilitating the cleaning of the mattress and avoiding the accumulation of mites. If you sprinkle baking soda before you vacuum and scrub it well, you'll get a more effective cleaning.
Finally, for a deep cleaning, it is recommended every six months, first vacuum the mattress; and then, place a foam resulting from the mixture between a tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent in 1 liter of very cold water, and face the entire mattress with it. To finish, let the mattress air dry or help yourself with a dryer.
