People who have the privilege of sleeping on a memory foam mattress topper will shout from the rooftops of its comfort and benefits. A great night’s sleep is guaranteed every night when you have one of these on your mattress.
They work to make your bed the most comfortable it can be. Even if you have a terrible bed with a lumpy mattress, just adding a memory foam mattress topper to it will do wonders for your back. However, just like anything else that is made from material, these toppers need to be cleaned and deodorized periodically.
Here is how you can clean your memory foam mattress topper in 5 easy steps:
Step One: Using a spray bottle, put water on the surface of the mattress.
Step Two: Mix a vinegar solution by adding 1 cup of white vinegar to 4 cups of water. Shake to mix well. Spray this on the surface of the mattress. Use this in place of any type of bleach. By using white vinegar, you will rid the topper of dirt as well as discourage the growth of any mildew or mold. Let this set for 30 minutes.
Step Three: When the vinegar solution is dry, spray the surface with water once more. While the vinegar should work nicely, adding baking soda will get your mattress topper even cleaner. Sprinkle some on the mattress followed by rubbing it in. This will get rid of any leftover stains as well as deodorize the mattress. The baking soda will also take away the smell of vinegar.
Step Four: When the baking soda has dried, vacuum the remnants from the mattress. You should notice a huge difference in the appearance of your mattress topper already.
Step Five: If possible, let it dry using indirect sunlight. Direct sun will cause damage to your mattress. Another way to dry it is by using a hair dryer on the cool setting.
Once you have completed these 5 steps, the memory foam mattress topper will be as good as new. This cleaning process does not have to be done very often. Just use your own judgment as to when you feel a good cleaning is needed. There is no need to rush out and buy a brand new one when all you have to do is clean the one you currently own.
