How to properly cleanse your mattress

To keep your mattress safe, healthy, and clean, you’ll need to manage routine cleaning as well as address larger problems like spots, stains, odors, and even bed bugs and dust mites. Regularly cleaning your mattress can remove allergens, dust, bacteria, and stop serious mattress problems including mold and odors.

Washing your sheets and pillows is a start, but that’s not all you need to do. Keeping your mattress clean is important, but not difficult. Often, all you’ll need to do is wash your bedding regularly, vacuum every few months, and add a mattress protector. But even more intensive cleaning like spot removal or even removing odors is usually about as simple as spraying your mattress down and giving it a good scrub. We will talk about regular cleanings, how to deal with bigger problems and when it is time to toss the mattress altogether!

Signs to clean

You haven’t cleaned your mattress or changed your sheets in months. – Ew.

You are experiencing allergies while sleeping: If you feel allergy symptoms more often in bed or as you wake up, it’s probably time to clean up the dust.

You notice bugs or strange bites: microscopic blood stains or insect waste spots, or unusual bites on your body.

There is a smell that is not coming from you: Odors on your mattress can be gross and disruptive for sleeping and even point to a sign of a bigger problem you need to address.

Your mattress is looking a little more colorful, but not from your skills as an interior designer. Whether mattress stains are a mystery, or you know their origin, it’s best to address stains as soon as you know about them.

We’re your Bed Buddy!!

Our mission is a simple one: We want to help you get incredible sleep, like a good sleep buddy should. And how you might ask? By not only conducting extensive research into the subject itself, but by personally testing out the thousands of mattresses on the market that claim to improve the quality of your slumber.

We really sleep on our mattress research by testing each for at least a hundred sleeps! We do not just compare features like review blogs, nor collate others’ online reviews, nor do a brief test of one to seven nights. No, our research includes a one hundred consecutive sleep test, so we can say, ‘Yup, this is what we found, because we really slept on it!’

We have no affiliation with the companies we feature, and any advertisements that appear on this website not at our discretion. They are there to keep the slumber party going. The Bed Buddy team takes incredible pride in the work we do. We hope that the reviews, news, and sleep information can help you on your personal journey for better sleep. And the job is fun – it’s not all naps! … sometimes… We love creating content that you enjoy, whether it’s on our site, or our newsletter, which you should sign up for.
