How to clean the mattress: instructions for washing and cleaning the mattress from blood stains, pee, mold ... tips for eliminating mites from the mattress.

Let's face it right away, removing mold, pee and blood stains from the mattress is a difficult task. Especially when the stain gets dry and penetrates deep into the fibers of the mattress. The most difficult stains to remove are those of blood where the obligatory choice involves the use of specific detergents for upholstered fabrics.

Natural remedies to remove stains from the mattress

Grandma's remedies for cleaning the mattress include a solution of water and white vinegar or water and sodium bicarbonate; other natural remedies involve the use of boric acid. These remedies can be useful in eliminating urine stains and mold stains but are not always effective on blood stains. To remove blood stains from the mattress we recommend boric acid used as described below.

Boric acid is commonly found in DIY stores. We usually recommend online purchases because thanks to the increased competition it is possible to face shipping costs by spending less than what is required in the corner shop but this time we have not found attractive proposals: on Amazon a kg of pure boric acid is offered at the price of 12.75 euros with the addition of 9 euros for shipping costs.

Before applying boric acid, moisten the stain without wetting the mattress excessively. Completely cover the stain with boric acid (possibly diluted as specified on the label) and rub with a dry rag. Leave to dry in sunlight if possible in a well-ventilated place. Once dry, remove any residue and if necessary, repeat the operation until the stain disappears.

To eliminate mold stains, just use a solution of water and white wine vinegar or water and baking soda.

How to get rid of pee stains from the mattress

For children's urine stains (or worse still, cat pee), it is recommended to use boric acid in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide. Warning! We are not talking about the classic hydrogen peroxide used as a disinfectant which has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide below 6%. Be sure to buy 34-volume hydrogen peroxide (for further information:alternative uses of hydrogen peroxide).

Impregnate cotton wool balls with hydrogen peroxide and rub on the halo left by the urine. Let the hydrogen peroxide act and then pass a sponge with hot water to rinse the stained surface. Dry in the sun, in a ventilated area or, if it is not possible, use a hairdryer or an iron, taking care to protect the surface of the mattress (and also the iron plate) by placing a towel in between.

How to remove yellow stains from the mattress

When pee or other stains have left a faded halo, you can take advantage of the whitening properties of baking soda. Sprinkle a tip of baking soda on the affected area and sprinkle some mineral water with a spray. Wait 5 - 10 minutes and brush or vacuum the bicabonate residue. Baking soda is an excellent remedy for clean the mattress and eliminate bad smells.

Rather than running for cover with remedies to remove stains from the mattress, it is necessary to anticipate and adopt a solution to protect the mattress from any event. On Amazon an excellent Mattress Cover and Padded Mattress Protector for double beds is offered at a price of 24.95 euros with free shipping. The version for single bed is available at a price of 17.90 euros with free shipping.
