Spring cleaning sends fear into everyone, even the avid cleaners. Ease those fears and learn how to tackle the biggest cleaning jobs with these easy insider tips.
Cleaning a mattress
HOW OFTEN? Every six months
- Vacuum the top of the mattress using an upholstery attachment.
- Remove stains by wiping down the surface with a cloth lightly dampened with cold water and a small amount of upholstery shampoo. Be careful not to soak the mattress (moisture can create mold and damage the layers).
- Protect your mattress from dust mites and stains by investing in a quality mattress pad and washing the pad every six months.
EXTRA CLEANING TIP: Guess what? There's no need to flip your mattress. Instead, rotate it head to toe every six months for even wear.
