Nonetheless, the process of cleaning your memory foam mattress can be trickier sometimes. Well, no matter how impossible the task may seem to be, you really don’t have to panic over the issue. Memory foam mattresses can actually be easy to clean. The exercise will only bare ripe fruits if only the correct instructions are followed to the latter.

Tips to Maintain the Cleanliness of Your Memory Foam Mattress
1. Regular Cleaning of Your Mattress:
Pets and kids happen to be the major agents of dirt on your mattress. However, do not assume that your mattress is clean because you restricted the kids and pets from accessing your bedroom. Remember, you sleep on the mattress on a daily basis. According to science, a human skin is capable of producing more than 40000 skin cells in a single hour. The cells produced turn out to be dust. Now, assuming that you spend 8 hours on a night sleep, within one month your skin will have produced approximately 9.6 million skin cells. This means the amount of dust on your mattress is equivalent to the number of skin cells produced. A regular cleaning will do better in maintaining the cleanliness of your mattress. A vacuuming is highly recommended for regular mattress cleaning exercises.
2. Keep Your Bedroom Clean:
Mostly, you use your mattress in the bedroom unless otherwise. Dirty bedrooms are likely to transfer the dirt to the beddings. If your bedroom is dusty, then definitely your bed will be dusty as well and the bed includes the mattress. Therefore, keeping your bedroom clean will help keep your mattress clean and free form dust.
3. Avoid Eating in Bed:
I know how tempting it becomes sometimes to take your meals in your bedroom and more specific on your bed. It doesn’t matter whether it is a drink or food, taking any of these two on the bed should be avoided for a clean mattress. Drinks may accidentally spill on the mattress while drinking leading to stains which end up being permanent. Make use of your dining table. If you have to take your food in your bedroom, then make sure you have a set area for the purpose and not on the bed.
How to Clean A Memory Foam Mattress
Memory foam is a popular material in the mattress industry. Research shows that it’s among the top listed ideal mattress material to consider when purchasing a new mattress for yourself. Memory foam mattresses are widely known for their perfect body support, comfortability, durability, firmness, and affordability. They are ideal for people living with back/spine problems. They tend to keep your spine aligned preventing unnecessary pressure points.
Nonetheless, as I said earlier in this post, the comfortability of these mattresses will only be maintained if the mattress is kept clean. Cleaning a memory foam mattress is quite different and sometimes can be trickier. The following instructions should be followed to the latter to ensure a successful cleaning is done.
1. Vacuum Your Memory Foam Mattress:
This the most recommended way to clean your memory foam mattress. The exercise should be done regularly though. Vacuuming your memory foam mattress does not only suck dirt off your mattress but also maintains the wellbeing of the mattress. It is actually the easiest way to maintain your memory foam cleanliness.
Prior to vacuuming, remove the mattress cover. This makes things simple. It ensures that every Conner of the memory foam mattress is thoroughly vacuumed. You can use a washing machine to clean the cover. Either way, you can just wash it manually with water and a soft detergent.
2. Remove the Stains:
Sometimes, there may be some stubborn stains that won’t obey the vacuuming exercise. Now if this happens to you, avoid the use of commercial products with bleak chemicals like ammonia or even bleach. These chemicals can sometimes cause damage to the material of the memory foam.
To clean the stains, it’s recommended that you use mild detergents mixed with water. With a clean sponge soaked with the bubble of the mixture (Mild detergent + Water), clean the stain/spot thoroughly in a circular motion. If you can’t get a mild detergent, vinegar can also do well with stubborn stains.
3. Dry Your Memory Foam Mattress Completely:
During this whole mattress cleaning session, there should be some liquid spilled on the mattress. Take your memory foam mattress out and dry it under the sun with an immediate effect. Sun drying is faster and reliable. Turn the mattress repeatedly to ensure that the mattress dries evenly.
In case there is no enough sun, use a portion of Sodium bicarbonate on the wet areas. It absorbs the wetness perfectly. After the mattress is completely dry, immediately vacuum the whole mattress again to ensure no particle of the Sodium bicarbonate is left on the surface of your mattress.
