Take care of your mattress, and it will take care of you! Getting a good night’s sleep depends on more than just the right pillow and nestling under blankets and comforters (or flat sheets for these hot summer nights!) Here is a look at how to care for your mattress.
First things first, prioritize mattress support. What exactly does that mean? It means that the bed needs a firm base on which to rest. Box springs, bed frames, and foundations can all make a difference. Although you might think of it as a tedious chore, reading the mattress warranty that you got is well worth it, too!
Trying Using a Mattress Protector
At first glance, a mattress protector probably sounds like an unnecessary expense. Even so, it’s an investment that you won’t regret after you make it. That’s because spills and stains can ruin your mattress. To make the most of this experiment, be sure to get a liquid-resistant mattress protector. It helps keep your mattress clean and healthy – and you will reap the benefits. Since you might overheat as you sleep at night, look for protectors made with breathable materials so that you can stay cool.
Keep It Clean
It’s also important to keep your mattress clean. That’s part of why a mattress protector is so important. Even so, you’ve got to get rid of dust, pollen, pet dander, and other debris that can quickly collect on your mattress. These substances can aggravate your allergies, so take the time to vacuum it especially if you don’t change before bed and just sleep in the clothes you wore that day. You can spot-treat stains with warm water and a mild detergent, too.
Here’s a secret you might not know: rotating your mattress works. After all, after you’ve been sleeping on it for a few years, it will wear out. Try rotating it once a month or every three months or every six months. It’s up to you and your preferences. If you sleep with a partner, talk to them, and ask them how they feel about this technique.
