After a long hard day at work, we know that there is only one thing you’re looking forward to… a good old sleep on your lovely mattress. At that moment a mattress can appear to seem like heaven to you.
What you didn’t know is mattresses are prone to getting extremely dirty due to them being one of the most used pieces of furniture in the household. If you’re also one of those people who enjoys having a snack whilst watching one of your favourite series on Netflix then it can often have more then you think!
Untreated Mattress Spills Can Become Permanent Stains
If left untreated these stains can become permanent over time and deteriorate the fibres in your mattress, not only this but it will have a big impact on providing an ideal breeding ground for the growth of Dust Mites, Bed Bugs and Mold.
Below we have rounded up 3 of the most common stains along with effective ways to remove them.
Chocolate Mattress Stains
Like many of us we often share our home with children, we all know they can often be messy pups wiping their hands on almost anything they can find including your mattress. Not just the kids us grown-ups often wait for them to go to sleep before we hit the naughty cupboard and like many often miss our mouths.
Chocolates are most certainly high in sugar content, fat and other ingredients that can have a detrimental effect on our mattresses. We suggest for the easiest way to clean if follow our method below:
Step 1: Let the stain dry fully.
Step 2: Scrape off the dried stain using a flat edge object.
Step 3: Put a paper towel on top of the residue and run a mild hot iron over it.
Step 4: Remove the paper towel from the mattress in a way that the stains stick to it.
Step 5: Scrub the leftover stain mark using laundry detergent, water, and a microfiber cloth.
Step 6: Dry the cleaned spot using a blow dryer.
If the above process doesn’t work first time round then proceed all steps again until the stain is fully removed.
Coffee Mattress Stains
Who doesn’t enjoy a nice brew before they get ready for work in the morning – I know I do! But what happens if you accidentally spill your coffee? Follow this simple 5 action plan for immediate effect:
Step 1: Place a paper towel on top of the spillage and let it absorb as much coffee as it can.
Step 2: Use multiple paper towels until the moisture is gone.
Step 3: Spray a good quantity of stain remover that contains oxygen bleach on to the stain and let it sit for at least fifteen minutes.
Step 4: Rub a damp sponge over the stain, rinse it to remove the absorbed coffee, and rub it again until the stain is gone, if the stain doesn’t fade, reapply the stain remover and repeat the process.
