Clean with caution
And So To Bed provided three central tenets for mattress cleaning; don’t vacuum or scrub, and regularly wash bedding and protectors.
While they provide a quick anti-dust solution, vacuums may dislodge mattress stuffing and warp them in uncomfortable places.
Scrubbing is also a no-no, as it can embed stains, and wet cleaning may also damage the upholstery, so people should blot instead with a dry rag.
Regular washing of linens is paramount for cleanliness, ideally once every one to two weeks, while protectors need a round in the washing machine once a month.
