It’s good to know how to clean a mattress considering just how much stuff builds up in and on this soft surface where we spend so much time. You already know about dust mites and the dead skin cells they feast on, but many mattresses also contain sweat, blood, urine and other bodily fluids… along with mold and mildew growing on those very things. Unless you shower before bed every night, your mattress might also contain dirt, oils and trace chemicals from various toiletries, and even pollen.
If your New Year’s resolution is to get more sleep, you’re on your way to being healthier and more alert. The bed is where you begin and end the day, and where you spend nearly a third of your life. So why not make it the cleanest, loveliest, and most comfortable spot in your home? Knowing the right way to wash, dry, and store your bed’s components is essential to creating a soothing sleep environment. And if you’re in the market for new bedding, we’ve got you covered there, too.
