How to invigorate your mattress
We’ll discuss how to invigorate your mattress and the different types of mattresses and some of the best options for people who have a hard time sleeping. The most common type of mattress is the innerspring. This is a traditional mattress that has coils inside to provide a springy feel and support. There are many variations on this design, such as air-filled or water-filled.
There are 4 main types of mattresses, which are made from different materials: organic cotton, memory foam, latex and innerspring. Organic cotton mattresses have a natural feel and can be breathable for those who have allergies or asthma. Memory foam mattresses are denser than other types and provide pressure relief for back pain sufferers. Latex mattresses are durable and supportive in comparison to other materials, but they also tend to be less breathable than organic cotton mattresses. Innerspring beds offer more support than any other type but they also tend to be less comfortable than memory foam beds or latex beds
Why Sleeping Well Matters
Cleaning your mattress is an important but often overlooked task for keeping your sleeping area fresh and healthy.
Regularly cleaning your mattress can remove allergens, dust, bacteria, and stop serious mattress problems including mold and odors. To keep your mattress safe, healthy, and clean, you’ll need to manage routine cleaning as well as address larger problems like spots, stains, odors, and even bed bugs and dust mites.
Back when most mattresses could be flipped over, the conventional wisdom was that you should turn it twice a year, and take that opportunity to clean it as well. These days, a lot of mattresses, including the pillow-top variety, can’t be flipped because they have a proper top and bottom. But cleaning your mattress two times a year remains a solid rule of thumb. (Check the mattress label for instructions since the manufacturer might recommend rotating the mattress head to foot to ensure even wear.)
Start the cleaning
process by stripping the mattress of all sheets and bedding and tossing the items in the wash. To remove tough stains
, always use a Consumer Reports top-rated laundry detergent and the hottest water setting on your washing machine; dry on high heat.
If your mattress has a fresh stain, tackle it immediately after removing your bedding. Grab the appropriate stain remover,
a couple of dry cloths, and treat the stain as if you were treating a carpet—blot, don’t rub the stain in.
Next, vacuum the entire mattress surface with the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Pay attention to seams and crevices, where dirt, dust, dead skin, and other icky stuff collect; switching to your vacuum’s crevice attachment can help get in deep.
If you have a pillowtop mattress, the same advice applies: Use the crevice tool to get into the folds of the pillowtop and get around the seams as much as possible.
Our tests have found that a normal vacuum cleaner provides capable cleaning,
but if you’re fastidious, consider investing in the Dyson V6 Mattress Handheld Vacuum, a 0 device designed specifically for the job. In a Consumer Reports at-home mattress test, we cleaned half of a foam Tempur-Pedic mattress with a top-rated canister vacuum and half with the Dyson handheld. The Dyson sucked up 3 grams of material, including dead skin cells that dust mites like to nosh on, compared with the 1 gram that our regular vacuum removed.
Once you’re finished vacuuming, check for dry stains and spot treats them with an appropriate cleaner. An upholstery cleaner or enzyme-based pet-odor remover can do the job on many bodily fluids or organic liquids, like wine. For other stains, such as dirt or grass, try a simple solution of 1 teaspoon mild dish detergent and 1 cup of warm water.
Next, deodorize the mattress by sprinkling baking soda over the entire surface. Especially if this is your first cleaning, don’t be afraid to empty an entire 1-pound box onto the mattress. For best results, leave the baking soda there for 24 hours. That means you might need to sleep elsewhere in your home—or plan the project around an overnight trip. If you can place the mattress near a window, the sunlight will add its sanitizing power.
After the baking soda has had a chance to tackle odors, go back over the mattress with your vacuum’s upholstery attachment. If you don’t already own a mattress cover, we recommend buying one. And adding a mattress pad between the cover and bottom sheet will help absorb moisture. Along with the periodic deep cleaning
described here, these extra layers of protection will help prevent mites, fleas, and other pests from sharing your bed. That should really help you sleep tight.
