How to protect and keep your mattress in good condition for years


Mattress, the golden rules for preserving it over time

The mattress is not just a piece of furniture but is the fundamental element to guarantee well-being and proper rest. Practically an investment in our health. We must remember that we spend at least a third of our lives in bed, so choosing it well can make a difference in the quality of our life. In addition to choosing it, however, we must keep it in the right condition. Today we will see how to preserve it for a long time in the correct way.

The golden rules for keeping your mattress at its best

The first tip is to turn the mattress to the right side. This practice can help prevent one-sided warping and help distribute wear evenly over time. Furthermore, turning it serves to enjoy the right characteristics based on the season. In fact, each mattress has a winter and a summer side .

Another fundamental rule for preserving the mattress over time is to remove stains. Whether it is urine, blood , coffee or other elements it is important to avoid them impregnating the fabric. To remove them, create a mixture with a spoonful of bicarbonate of soda , 1 spoonful of Marseille soap and one spoonful of 10 volume hydrogen peroxide . Mix the ingredients well, pour the mixture onto a microfibre cloth, rub it on the mattress and possibly leave it to dry in the open air.


To keep it always clean and sanitized, it is important to dry clean it every 2 months . To do this, sprinkle it with bicarbonate of soda and a few drops of essential oil , such as tea tree oil, leave it to act for 30 minutes and remove it with the vacuum cleaner.

For a deeper cleaning, prepare a mixture with 1 liter of water, 1 tablespoon of bicarbonate and half a glass of lemon juice. Dip a microfiber cloth in the solution and rub it on the mattress. Avoid wetting it excessively and let it dry in the open air.

To best protect it you can use the mattress cover which, acting as a barrier, will prevent sweat, body oil and other substances from coming into direct contact with the mattress.
