Your Mattress Would Like a Word
Ah, if only we could toss mattresses into the washing machine. Then we would never need to worry about all the gross things that get on them. But sadly, we need to accept reality and clean our mattresses the hard way; by hand. Unfortunately, even a mattress protector doesn’t save us from this pesky job.
Since mattresses are yet another favorite place for bacteria and germs, try to clean yours at least every six months. It can be as simple as running a handheld vacuum over the padding, but if you have a deeper stain, you can rub a baking soda mixture into it for some freshness.
