How to Clean a Mattress

For this task you will need a vacuum, and baking soda.

  1. Remove all bedding from your mattress
  2. Vacuum the entire mattress moving in straight lines from the top to to the bottom. Vacuum the sides. (Some vacuums come with an upholstery attachment.)
  3. Sprinkle baking soda across the top of the mattress to remove any unpleasant odor.
  4. Let the baking soda sit for an hour, then vacuum it up.
  5. Making sure the room is well ventilated, and using ammonia and a white rag, dab remaining stains out of the mattress, then reapply the baking soda and vacuum once again.
