·  Sprinkle baking soda over entire bare mattress, leave for 1 hour, then vacuum.

Mattress Care Every 3 months: Turn & Flip

Rotating your mattress will extend it’s life span. Hotels keep track of mattress rotation by marking each end of the mattress with a month. January, April, July, October.

Rotate pillow top mattresses by simply switching which end you lay your head on the mattress. Otherwise over time indentations will occur in the pillow top fabric.

Remove Stains

·  Remove most stains by dabbing with a clean white cloth and a ratio of 2 drops dish soap + 4 cups warm water

·  Remove blood stains by gently dabbing with hydrogen peroxide

·  Remove urine stains & odor by mixing and spraying area with a solution of  2 cups hydrogen peroxide + 1 tbsp baking soda + 1 dish soap. Let air dry, then vacuum.

Protecting your Mattress

The perfect addition to your mattress is a cover. Using a cover can provide extra comfort while protecting your mattress from built up moisture, stains and dead skin cells. If you have allergies a mattress cover collects all of these things to prevent them from becoming airborne. Your mattress cover should be washed every month.
