Memory foam mattresses are gaining more and more popularity in the market as the ideal type to buy when purchasing a new mattress. It's a no brainer due to numerous acclaims about the amazing level of comfort and support they provide for a great nights sleep. These mattresses contour to your body so that your weight is evenly distributed to relieve pressure points and reduce pain while sleeping.
Memory foam is made with a special type of material using advanced Visco technology memory foam. Special care should be used when cleaning a memory foam mattress to keep it in tiptop shape. Below are some tips to cleaning your memory foam mattress.
Vacuuming Your Memory Foam
One of the easiest and simplest ways to maintain cleanliness for your memory foam is with regular vacuuming. Using a handheld vacuum is your best option for greatest amount of control.
You can remove and wash the Antimicrobial Cotton Blend Cover that fits over the Nature's Sleep memory foam prior to vacuuming. Be sure to vacuum all surfaces of your memory foam including the sides.
Removing Stains From Your Memory Foam
If a stain does get on your memory foam, do not use commercial products with harsh chemicals in them such as bleach or ammonia. Not only are these chemicals too harsh, but they will also ruin the material and the interior of the memory foam.
A preferred way to clean your memory foam is by using a mild detergent such as dishwashing liquid that is mixed with water until it is in a bubble form. Next, with a clean sponge, dip it into the bubbles and clean with a circular motion from the outermost portion of the stain towards the interior of it. Be sure to only use the bubbles to remove the stain without dipping the sponge into the solution.
If you do not have a mild detergent, you can also use a water and vinegar mixture. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and lightly spray the mattress, scrubbing the stained part quickly with an absorbent clean cloth. The vinegar will help dilute the stain and will also soak up any unpleasant odor.
Drying Your Memory Foam Mattress
If any type of liquid is spilled on your memory foam, it needs to go out in the sun immediately in order to dry out quickly. When you place the mattress in the sun all day long, make sure you turn it periodically so that it dries evenly on all sides.
If there is no sun to dry your memory foam mattress, then sprinkle baking soda onto the wet spot. The baking soda will absorb the dampness. After about a half hour to an hour of having the baking soda on it, a clump will form as it absorbs the baking soda. Once the baking soda is done absorbing the dampness the only thing that needs to be done is vacuuming up the baking soda. The baking soda will also absorb any unpleasant odors.
If the mattress is still a little damp, simply use a blow dryer to complete the drying process. Do not use the blow dryer on the hottest setting since it could cause damage to the mattress. Only use it on the cold or warm setting until the mattress is completely dry.
