How to Dry the Mattress

How to Dry the Mattress

For example, where there are many different options for dealing with urine stains. Are unpleasant life situations the child wrote on the mattress, or a similar case came out with a sick person since the patient has a weak bladder. No need to despair, all is not lost. With such spots, it is possible and necessary to fight. Next, we will try to tell you how to clean the mattress of urine.

 

Dry cleaning for a small urine stain

If the urine spot is small, and it was too late to get into the mattress, then you can say – you are lucky. In such variants, you can do dry cleaning. What do I need for dry cleaning? Water, vacuum cleaner, boric acid, and rubber gloves.

  1. We wear gloves made of rubber. To begin with, moisten a disposable towel or paper napkin in warm water, and moisten the stain, but do not overdo it – you need to wet slightly; we just need to dilute the concentration and the stinky smell.

Wet stain cleaning

The second method is suitable for a prominent spot when the liquid has passed deep into the mattress. In this case, there will be more work. We will need water, napkins, vinegar, baking soda, and a sponge.

How to dry the mattress

  • First, you need to wet the stain so that the liquid is absorbed into the napkins.

 

Clean the stain with a home chemistry

Now on sale, many tools help to fight with such types of spots. This is the popular Vanish and the LOC tool, which AMWAY creates. It is necessary to wash the stain by the instructions on the package. Leave for 1-1.5 hours if the colour is old, and then dry the problematic area. There are also such means for removing persistent fragrances as Sanera Enzym, Odor Gone. These funds are sprayed over the spot.

Another tool for removing persistent stains is Dufta Fresh. This tool is suitable not only for the mattress but also for any upholstered furniture. The product is safe for babies and animals. Spray the effect on the spot, and leave for 1.5-2 hours after drying the mattress in accessible ways. Do not lean the bed near the heaters – it’s scary. Do not forget that it is better to prevent the bed from getting wet than to fight the results.

The video talks about how to remove the aroma of urine with Dufta Fresh.

 

Specifics of cleaning various mattresses

Depending on the product’s composition, emphasize specific cleaning rules that must be performed so that the mattress lasts longer.

Products made of coconut fibre or chips can not be subjected to complete washing. Vacuuming is also made no sense; cleaning is better to do so:

Main! You can not wet coconut mattresses much; it can finally damage the filler!

You can wash the foliage foam layer, which is easily detachable. It must be rolled up and sent to the washer.

After washing, the foam layer must be perfectly dried in the sun’s rays or on a battery.

 

Orthopaedic

Mattresses with an orthopaedic effect can be cleaned at home only if the contamination is local – such places can be treated either with foam from a cleaning agent or by folk methods that involve a little moisture.

  1. If the product is heavily contaminated or the stains are extensive and old – it is better to give it to dry cleaning so as not to damage it.
  2. Products made of artificial latex can be subjected only to dry cleaning. The steam generator, in this case, is also not recommended; it leaves droplets of moisture that are instantly absorbed.

Main! It is necessary to dry mattresses with an orthopaedic effect immediately after finishing; otherwise, not only the filler will become unusable, but mould may also start.

It is also not recommended to hang such products before knocking them out; this provokes deformation and violates the properties of an orthopaedic nature.

Also, like others, it is not recommended to wash – rusty spots will appear on the places of springs that will spoil the appearance, and it is tough to remove them. After washing, this product will lose its shape.

Local contaminants can be washed, washed-out – anything; the main thing is to use a minimal amount of liquid and that hour with all seriousness to dry everything.

If you have already started the primary cleaning, it will also be helpful to read the publication about cleaning the oven from soot and grease.

 

How to get rid of stains

It is unnecessary to spill something on the bed to stain the mattress – during sleep, people are inherent in sweating, which also leaves stains. It is most advisable to clean the bed constantly; you do not have to make great efforts. It is easier to cope with colours when they are fresh and still late to absorb. Depending on the origin of the contaminants, emphasize any ways to eliminate them.

Chemical-based products

You can quickly clean the mattress with an orthopaedic effect at home with the help of purchased chemicals. This method can be called multifunctional; stain removers cope with different spots with the same efficiency.

To clean mattresses, any means intended for working with carpets and furniture upholstered with fabric are suitable – shampoos, powders, sprays, gels and dry foam.

Main! It is necessary to use the funds only by the manual on the package, using gloves made of rubber and considering the type of mattress filler.

 

Folkways

These methods are more narrowly focused, focused on spots of specific origin, and also less likely to provoke an allergic reaction. If there is an allergic person in the family, it is better not to use home chemistry for cleaning mattresses.

 

Organic stains

You can clean the product from bloodstains, urine and sweat in several proven ways.

Main! When cleaning blood stains, use only cold water – in the hot spot will only gain a foothold.

  1. Salt
  2. Moisten the place of contamination with a sponge. Apply locally salt and leave for 2-3 hours. Then, using a cotton pad or gauze, wet areas with salt with hydrogen peroxide. Continue to process while the salt foams, then remove the remains of salt with a sponge. For old bloodstains, it is better to use ammonia instead of peroxide.
  3. Ammonia
  4. Take 0.5 litres of cold water, add 1 tsp. Ammonia to it, shake. Wet a cotton pad in the solution and apply it to the stain, leave until dry. If the clogging is not gone, repeat the procedure, making more ammonia twice.
  5. Starch
  6. Easily cleans from strains of children’s urine. Mix the starch with water until the same mushy mass is obtained. Apply the product to the colour and leave until completely dry, then remove the starch remains with a brush.

The video below provides the option of cleansing with soda.

A fairly common way to get rid of dust is to vacuum the mattress on both sides. If you do this for some reason does not work, it can be knocked out.

  1. Take the mattress outside and carefully knock it out – this will free from dust, mites, wool and hair. After that, it is better to leave it for 3-4 hours under the sun.
  2. If you have to knock it out in the apartment, then, first of all, the mattress must be covered with a wet sheet, and then take it out on the balcony or leave it open to the window wide.
  3. For salvation from dirt and dust, a steam cleaner is perfect. Before using it, the product must be perfectly vacuumed.
  4. Hot steam quickly removes different spots, copes well enough with bacteria – very often, they directly become the basis of a rotten smell.
  5. For mattresses that are not recommended for wet cleaning, it is necessary to purchase steam cleaners with drying.

Everyday soap-based solutions easily remove stains of ordinary dirt.

  1. Simple soap
  2. Warm water. A quarter bar of simple soap grate and dissolve in 0.5 litres. Mix thoroughly, foam and soaked in a sponge to treat the place of contamination, squeezing out additional humidity in advance.
  3. Children’s powder
  4. People with sensitive skin, cleaning mattresses for children, and people with an allergic reaction are better to use children’s cleaners. Apply dry powder granules to the moistened stain, rub and leave for an hour. Remove the remains of the product with a brush and wipe the fabric with a clean wet cloth.

 

Other stains

It also happens that the housewife does not know what kind of stain on the mattress, and therefore it is difficult to choose the best way. In this case, you can use any chemical agent or turn to a multifunctional method.

For a glass of water, take 1 tsp. Ammonia. Wet a sponge or cotton pad in the solution and walk through the dirt from the edges to the centre, slowly rubbing the product. After wet with ammonia solution, the entire territory of the stain leaves for a couple of minutes, then wash the mattress with soap and dry perfectly.

Several standard recommendations will help to get rid of other stains on mattresses.

In the video below, you can get acquainted with the methods of cleaning with your own eyes.

Odour absorbers

Such funds are sold in the departments of home chemistry and pet stores (“VC Crypt” in the form of a spray). It is enough to process the “smelling” area, leave for a couple of hours, and then walk with a clean sponge.

  • Salt: Dilute salt with water in a ratio of 1: 3, rub into a problematic area, wait 10 minutes, wipe with a clean cloth, and dry with a hairdryer.
  • Soda: Richly cover the mattress or some contaminated areas with soda, leave for a day after vacuuming.

  • Ultraviolet radiation: The aroma of mould is most suitable to remove with the help of the rays of the sun – the mattress must be exposed for a couple of days to clean air once a day is turning over on the reverse side.

That’s how simple it is! Shoes, before falling on the mattress, may not be removed.

 

Urine stains

Urine is not only smelly but it is also washed podi try. However, this is if there is no baking soda, soap and hydrogen peroxide nearby. With these three, everything becomes extremely simple:

Vinegar not only removes earth stains very well, but it also perfectly deals with almost any smell. And at the same time does not leave any traces behind itself! Do this:

For starters, the mattress is vacuumed.

Now treat the surface with vinegar (use a spray bottle). For the mattress, be calm – vinegar is without problems and easily weathered; mould will not get because of it.

After a couple of minutes, thoroughly wive the vinegar-covered areas.

Let the mattress dry. If possible, use it in clean air.

 

The sun

The sun also eliminates odours, and also in a short time. Hold the mattress in the sun for one day, and the job will be done. And for the colour, be calm – in such a short time, the fabric will not have time to burn out even in the most robust heat.

How to wash the mattress?

Some mattresses can be washed. It will not be challenging to do this with an air mattress. If cotton wool is used instead of filler, it will have to be embroidered, wash the cover and separately sort out the cotton layer, ventilated in the air.

For washing individual mattresses can be used devices “Kercher”. Only to carry out this procedure would be nice on a hot day, so that the product has the opportunity to dry under the rays of the sun finally.

Washing a mattress with a spring block is allowed only if the filler between the water springs is not afraid of moisture.

 

Tricks of care for mattresses with an independent spring block

To date, the fashion for the purchase and use of independent spring mattresses has come. They cost much more than traditional; however, at the same time, they are more comfortable and convenient for rest and sleep.

It is better to purchase a mattress with an orthopaedic effect with a removable cover, which must be washed at least once a month.

The difficulty in cleaning independent spring mattresses is associated with their multilayering. Because of this, they can not be knocked out. Only cleaning with a vacuum cleaner using a soft nozzle or removing dust with a brush with a soft pile is allowed.

Bloodstains, urine can be carefully removed with hydrogen peroxide. To remove stains from cosmetics and dirt, it is better to use specialized chemical-based products.

Mattresses with orthopaedic effects are better not be washed, as the layers inside can get knocked down. And the product breaks.

Summing up, we can emphasize that cleaning the mattress is a polite and complex procedure. But with a serious approach, it will be possible to save the product from dirt and increase its service life.

 

Vacuuming or brushing

There are two ways to clean the mattress – dry and wet. For dry, you will need a regular vacuum cleaner; it would be friendly with a clean bag to collect dust: so tiny parts of dust from the surface will be better absorbed. Wet cleaning can be carried out in several ways. The most productive and straightforward – with a detergent effect with the help of a vacuum cleaner, which sucks up dust mites and fights any pollution. Another method – with the help of an ordinary soap-based solution and a sponge. If the mattress has not been cleaned for a long time, the solution can be created using a powder for washing, diluting it in warm water.

It is necessary to wash the mattress with an ordinary cloth soaked in this solution, and then you can rinse it in drinking water and rinse it again to remove the powder. Dry the product after this procedure is necessary for the sun’s rays until complete drying.

If the mattress needs to be cleaned very carefully, you can use specialized chemical artificial means to eliminate stains. The fake agent is applied to the surface, and at the end of a specific time marked on the package, it is washed off with water and wiped with a cloth or washed with a vacuum cleaner. After that, it is also dried in the sun’s rays and primarily in clean air. It is essential that the product not only dried but also ventilated from the smell of the product with which it was washed.

If the mattress is not contaminated with stains, then no problems with its cleaning should not appear. But very often, the housewives have a question about how to clean the mattress in the baby bed because the children often write in bed. In this case, it is necessary to get rid of the stain and the stinky smell. Clean the mattress from urine perfectly contributes to the drill. It is essential to mix it with water so that the foam comes out and apply this foam to the stain. Wait 10 minutes and clean the remains with a vacuum cleaner or a wet cloth. This method ideally helps to get rid of the stinky smell, but separately you will have to display the same yellow colour. In this case, a simple soap will help. It is necessary to wet the stain, rub it perfectly with soap, and then rinse with drinking water and dry with a towel. Then, first of all, send to dry in the sun’s rays. Remember, if the mattress is not dried after cleaning, there will be a stinky smell that will not be easy to remove. And there is a possibility of mold.

 

We clean different types of mattresses – what to calculate?

Self-cleaning of the mattress can lead to the product’s irreparably and irreparably spoiled; thanks to this, starting to eliminate traces of breakfast or other troubles from the bed, pay attention to the label and take into account the type of mattress and its properties.

  • Cotton. The filling of this mattress is cotton wool; the material of the cover is the boat and teak, or polycotton / polyester. This product is cheap, does not cause problems with transportation, and does not take up much space. This mattress requires mandatory annuity ventilation. It is also necessary to turn it over twice a month, vacuum it once during the week and, of course, remove stains with the required means. Excess water such as a mattress you will not spoil, but dry cotton wool will be very long, even on the balcony. Thanks to this, water is at a minimum!
  • Coconut. Here the filling is made of coconut coir, a hypoallergenic material suitable for small children. Cleaning should be exclusively dry (vacuum cleaner), ventilation and turning in the first place, and you can wash the leaf cover and on a light mode.
  • Orthopaedic. There is a block of springs (there are also springless models), and the filling is made of coconut fibre, latex and polyurethane. It is not recommended to wet the mattress – constantly ventilated, cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, turned over every 2-3 months, the stains are eliminated with the help of unique means. What mattress with orthopaedic effect to choose for a child?

 

Specifics of care – what do you need to know?

  • Apply a mattress ton! With its help, you will solve half of the problems and significantly extend the product’s life. Still, it is much easier to wash the mattress pad than to clean the mattress itself, even more so to change the filler.
  • Constantly ventilate! In other words, once a month, remove the laundry, open the windows open and put the mattress so that it is circulated on both sides.
  • Every 2-3 months, turn it over according to the scheme of the “eight” – changing the bottom and top, legs and head.
  • Vacuum once a week. At high power and with a furniture nozzle. Even if the bed is regularly made and covered with a blanket, dust, hair, very little debris still penetrate the mattress.
  • Try to remove stains from the mattress Immediately when they appear. This will make your work easier.
  • Do not try to fill the colours with water with soap or other means. Wet filling leads to damage to the product, and blocks of springs are covered with rust.
  • Sometimes carry out dry cleaning of the product – knock out dust, apply a vacuum cleaner with nozzles.

Is it possible to wash mattresses with an orthopaedic effect?

Such products are undesirable to wash. Even the most subtle model from the manifestation of moisture can lose its orthopaedic specifics. Moreover, the mattress is quite challenging to dry. If you even leave it in clean air under direct sunlight, there is a risk that the moisture will not evaporate at all, and after some time, mould forms in the middle. And not every product can be wet. Some fillers, after contact with moisture and drying, may simply begin to crumble. Thanks to this, cleaning should be treated with special responsibility.

Modern mattresses are often dressed in reliable removable covers, like products in the “Sleep Therapy” online store. Any model is well protected from the appearance of moisture, dust, dirt and does not ask for washing as a rule. Sometimes, it is enough to clean the cover itself, and your mattress will not become unusable and save all its qualities. But what to do if the body is non-removable and no one can advise how to wash the mattress with an orthopaedic effect?

With a soft sponge soaked in the solution, gently clean the stain, wipe with a cloth soaked in drinking water, and try to dry quickly. It is most advisable to use an ordinary hairdryer. However, if it is missing, thoroughly wet all humidity with a dry clean cloth and set it to dry in clean air. It will be enough to treat some areas and not think about washing the mattress with an orthopaedic effect. I would like to note that ammonia can save from stains and remove foul odours.

How to remove stains from urine?

The golden rule of washing says: fresh dirt is removed easier, faster and more effective than old ones. Due to this, immediately after the appearance of spots, you need to take such measures:

  1. 1. wet urine with paper napkins, dry cloth. At the same time, the main thing is to control the pressure force so that the liquid does not get into the much deeper layers of the filler, and the area of the stain does not increase.
  2. 2. Disarm uric acid and remove the aroma of cat urine contributes to table vinegar. It is necessary to dilute it with water in a ratio of 1: 3 and apply it to the surface of the mattress with careful movements. For such purposes, it is better to use a clean cloth, sponge or sprayer.
  3. 3. To remove excess, cover the area for work with paper napkins, easily wet. Also, the stain is sprinkled with kitchen soda for 12-15 minutes to absorb urine residues and clean products.
  4. 4. To remove yellow traces from the surface of the mattress, hydrogen peroxide diluted with water in a ratio of 1: 2 is used. The solution is applied on top of the soda with a sponge or sprayer. Almost immediately after that, the spot is covered with a layer of foam that appeared during the joint action of the elements in the composition. During the chemical reaction, urine stains turn pale and disappear. The real act of peroxide lasts 2 hours; the foam can be removed only after this period.
  5. 5. After the end of the work, it remains only to collect the soda with a vacuum cleaner and dry the mattress perfectly so that the filler does not turn from excess moisture into a focus of fungi and mould.

Sheets, cover and mattress cover with traces of urine must be washed. Before loading the laundry into the machine, treating the yellow places with a laundry detergent is recommended. Excellent gel and powder “Vanish”. Tiny particles in the composition absorb more than half of the contaminants and eliminate the rancid smell of biological secretions.

It makes sense to give preference to proven, very famous brands of cleansers. Although products of this type need a little more expensive, it perfectly copes with its task and protects repeated washing in 70-80% of cases.
