Vacuuming Your Memory Foam Mattress
One of the simplest and easiest ways to keep your memory foam clean is by vacuuming it regularly. You can use a handheld vacuum for the best amount of control.
You can also wash and remove your mattress cover before you vacuum it. Make sure that you vacuum all over your memory foam, which includes the sides.
Getting Stains Out of Your Memory Foam
If your memory foam mattress becomes stained, don’t use commercial products that have harsh chemicals in them like ammonia or bleach. These chemicals are of course harsh, but they’ll also ruin the material and the inside of the memory foam.
A better way to clean your memory foam is by using a detergent hat is mild, like a dishwashing liquid which is mixed with water until it bubbles. With a clean sponge, then you can dip it into the bubbles and clean with a circular motion from the outside of the stain towards the inside of it. Be sure to just use the bubbles to take the stain out without getting the sponge into the liquid itself.
If you don’t have a detergent gentle enough handy, you could also use a solution of vinegar and water. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and spray the mattress lighting, and scrub the stained area quickly with a clean, absorbent cloth. The vinegar will assist in diluting the stain and also soak up any odors which are unpleasant.
Drying Your Memory Foam Mattress
If you spill any kind of liquid on your memory foam, it will need to go into the sun right away so that it can dry out fast. When you put the mattress out in the sun all day, ensure that you periodically turn it so it will dry evenly on each side.
If there is no sun out so you can dry your mattress, you can sprinkle backing soda onto the wet spot instead. This will absorb the dampness and after about a half hour to an hour of putting it on, a clump will form as it is absorbing the moisture. After the baking soda is finished absorbing the liquid, all you need to do is to vacuum up the baking soda. The baking soda will also absorb any odors which are unpleasant.
If there is still some dampness to the mattress, you can use a blow dryer to finish the process of drying. Don’t use the blow dryer on the hottest setting, as this could damage your mattress. Use it on the cold or warm setting instead until your mattress is totally dry.
