A mattress is an expensive purchase but also plays an essential role in keeping you healthy, both mentally and physically. So, you want to make sure that your mattress lasts long and that also means keeping it clean! Mattresses can be a home for dust, dead skin, dirt, and other debris which means they need to be cleaned regularly.
Here are the following tips to keep your mattress sleep-able!
Why You Need a Clean Mattress
You may think that your mattress is already clean, especially if you always shower before going to bed and the mattress looks stain-free, but that is unlikely to be the case. According to a study, the average adult loses 285ml of fluid each night. We also shred around 454g of dead skin over a year, which mostly ends up on the mattress.
Your mattress is a big investment, most mattresses can last about seven to 10 years when properly cared for. Moreover, keeping your bedroom clean is an essential aspect of healthy living.
How to Keep Your Mattress Clean
Here are some tips from Mimpi Sleep:
For most people, that means once or twice a week. A mattress protector should also be washed occasionally according to the manufacturer’s directions. Don’t forget to spot treat if there’s any stain before washing the beddings. You can use homemade mattress stain removers such as baking soda or whatever available in the store.
Vacuum the Mattress
While you wash the beddings, gently vacuum the surface of the mattress. It’s a good idea to do this every couple of months or more often if you suffer from allergies. Start vacuuming from the top to the way down and pay attention to the overlapping paths. Do the same thing on all sides of the mattress.
Invest in Sheet and Mattress Protector
Protecting your mattress from stains, mold, and allergens take more than a sheet. We suggest you use a mattress cover that provides hypoallergenic and waterproof protection. Place the protector on top of the mattress then add the sheet.
Use it Only for Sleep
The mattress is probably one of the favorite objects in the house. It’s a safe haven where you sleep, lounge, work, eat, and other things. But, that’s not a good idea if you want your mattress to last long. Besides making the sheets dirty, crumbs of the food may attract unwanted guests into the room: bugs like ants, cockroaches, and flies.
Other than that, the body and mind should recognize the bedroom as a place of rest and intimacy. By getting rid of things like devices, and practice good hygiene, using the bed for only sleep can improve and benefit the well-being.
