Home Cleaning Tip: Bed Mattress Cleaning

Complement your home cleaning with these easy to follow bed mattress cleaning steps. Getting you mattress cleaned and smelling fresh again is quite challenging, especially if you don’t know the steps to do it and you don’t have the equipment to clean it. These steps can be easily followed and can be done right on top of your bed frame. Bed mattresses have been with us for 77,000 years already, and cleaning them has been a challenge since then.

What you need for your Bed Mattress Cleaning

  • Vacuum (with dryer)
  • Sponge (Scotchbrite)
  • Liquid detergent
  • Bleach / Color safe bleach

Need something cleaned?

Step 1: Remove Cover and dust

Remove your bed mattress’ cover, and anything that wraps around it until you are just left with the foam or the case. At this point, put your bed on its side and pat it to physically remove loose dirt and dust. This would also make the cleaning process a bit easier.

Step 2: Vacuum

Vacuum your bed to get the dirt stuck in the middle of the foam or spring. Some stains can already be removed from here already. Vacuum both sides and the lateral sides of your bed.


(It is easier to clean mattresses in its bare state with a lot of room around to work on)

Step 3: Soaping/Shampooing

Mix 5 mL of liquid detergent in 5 liter water. Mix it thoroughly until a lot of suds are produced. Using your sponge, use this mix to scrub your bed mattress. Make sure to scrub your whole bed.

Step 4: Stain removing

Mix a few drops of bleach in your liquid detergent mix and use it to scrub off stains that were not removed from the initial mix. Repeat this step if necessary.

Step 5: Drying

Once you are satisfied with the scrubbing, vacuum your bed to get the suds and water that seeped through the mattress. Once your bed feels like it is already drip dried, use your vacuum’s blower function and dry your mattress further.

(Some mattress stains are sometimes due to spilled liquid on the bed or the owner’s own sweat accumulating through the years)

It is highly suggested that you clean your mattress every 3 months to ensure that they stay fresh, clean and free of bed bugs.
