The holiday season often brings cherished guests, from close family members to old friends, into our home. While we meticulously decorate our spaces, the bedroom, where guests often retreat for rest, should not be overlooked.

A clean mattress communicates thoughtfulness and care for visitors, ensuring a restful and comfortable retreat. By cleaning your mattress, you can create an atmosphere of hospitality to elevate the overall experience for your guests, leaving a lasting impression of warmth and consideration that defines the true spirit of the Christmas season.

So, ready to give your mattress a makeover this Christmas? Here are the steps that you need to follow for a successful cleaning session of your mattress:

1. Gather Cleaning Supplies

Mattress Cleaning Supplies

Before you start, make sure you have all these supplies within arm’s reach:

  • Vacuum cleaner with upholstery attachment
  • Baking soda
  • Soft bristle brush
  • Damp cloth or paper towels
  • Empty spray bottle
  • Hand gloves
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Cold water

2. Remove Bedding Linens

Remove Bedding Linens

Strip your bed of all sheets, pillowcases, and any other bedding to expose the mattress and allow you to clean it thoroughly. Also, while blotting or cleaning the mattress, wash all the sheets, pillowcases, and other bedding in a washing machine (Check the manufacturer's guide if your bedding is machine-washable).

3. Vacuum the Mattress Surface

Important Reminder: Mattresses are not supposed to be soaked!

Identify any visible stains on the mattress. Apply a small amount of your chosen stain remover or cleaning solution to a clean cloth and gently blot the stain. Do not rub, and avoid using excessive moisture to prevent potential mould or mildew growth.

5. Deodorise the Mattress

Deodorise the Mattress

Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda evenly across the entire mattress surface and let it sit for at least 15-20 minutes to absorb odours. You can add a few drops of essential oils to the baking soda for a pleasant scent.

6. Expose the Mattress to the Sun

7. Flip or rotate the Mattress if Applicable
