Get Yourself A Mattress Cover
First and foremost, one of the most critical and most accessible ways of protecting your mattress is using a quality mattress protector. When shopping for this crucial element of your mattress cleaning routine, you want to ensure that you’re selecting a cover that will make removing and cleaning your mattress to the point and, of course, easy! Additionally, it would be best if you looked out for hypo-allergenic materials. Doing so will help protect you from dust mites and any allergens.
Whether you’re sleeping alone or sharing your mattress with someone else, most people tend to pick a side of the bed they prefer to sleep on and claim it. However, this may cause uneven wear and tear in your mattress, so when you choose to swap sides of your bed every few months or so, your bed stays in good maintenance.
Get Rid Of Any Surface Dust
You’ll find that every once in a while, take any spare time you may have to vacuum the surface of your bed. Doing so will help remove any allergens, as mentioned earlier. So if you own a mattress cover, this is an excellent time to extract it and run it through a light cycle in your washing machine while you vacuum any debris, dander, etc., from your bed.
Freshen Up & Deodorize
Body sweat and oils can build up and leave your mattress feeling funky as time goes by. Therefore, you may find it helpful to sprinkle banking soda and rub it in with a firm hard-bristled brush. Afterward, you can mix the baking soda with a few drops of lavender essential oil (known to improve sleep) before you sprinkle it over your mattress and scrub it with the brush you used earlier.
