In addition to washing your bedding, you may want to consider cleaning your mattress approximately every 6 months. Check with the mattress manufacturer to find out the best way to keep your mattress clean, as every model has specific care instructions. For most mattresses, users can follow some general guidelines:

Regular Cleaning Steps
To keep your mattress clean, the first step is to remove and wash all the bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. If the mattress has a removable cover, you may be able to wash this too.

With the bed free of obstacles, you can use your vacuum’s upholstery attachment to vacuum the surface and sides of the mattress. Blot any stains with a gentle cleanser, followed by a clean cloth dipped in cold water. Be careful not to get the mattress too wet, especially if it’s a memory foam or polyfoam mattress.

Allow the mattress to dry, and then apply baking soda to the surface of the mattress to soak up any lingering smells. Give it a few hours to fully absorb, then vacuum up the baking soda using the upholstery attachment. Repeat the process on the other side.



Spills and Accidents
In addition to routine maintenance, you may need to clean your mattress if you spill something or have another type of accident. Cleaning your mattress right away may help prevent the stain from setting into the mattress fibers. Depending on what kind of stain it is, you may try using dish soap, vinegar, a solution of hydrogen peroxide, or a commercial enzyme cleaner.

If you use a mattress protector, you may be able to get away with cleaning your mattress less often.
