Getting a good night’s sleep can all depend on the mattress you sleep on. So make sure your mattress is nice and clean. They can also be very expensive so you want to make sure you get your money’s out of it. So here’s some Shop RTO tips on cleaning your mattresses or keeping your mattress clean.
First suggestion is pretty easy and common sense. Buy a cover. There are many different kinds. Whether it’s one that lies on top that is cotton, pillow top, blends. But there are also casings that wrap around the mattress. Plastic casings that zip tight to protect against liquids. And, uh, hate to say but bed bugs as well.
Flip it. Spin it. Turn your mattress over and spin it on a regular basis. Helps shift the weight put upon the mattress through the months. Use daylight savings time as the reminder as it splits the year up in six months and makes for a good reminder.
Use extra blankets or towels for extra guests. As in your dog or cat. Hate to say it but let’s get real. Millions of spoiled dogs and cats enjoy the nestling with their masters on the bed. Or, is it the other way around and they allow us to sleep in their bed? At any rate, don’t let them spoil your mattress. Most pets enjoy their regular spot on the bed so strategically place an extra blanket or towel to protect from muddy paws and make it easier to clean the fur.
Clean up spills quickly and efficiently. Use a damp cloth with warm water and make sure the cloth isn’t soaking or dripping. That’ll just make the problem worse. If it’s urine or blood, add some baking soda to the warm water. Add some dish soap as well. If it’s a tough stain, use a soft brush and only treat the area that’s affected and be gentle. Try to dry it quickly with a blow dryer or a fan directly on it.
Americans sleep on an average of 7-8 hours a day and count on them to provide the comfort and relaxation after a long day. Make sure you pick the right mattress and keep it fresh and clean as long as you can.
