Get Your Mattress Deep Cleaned Without Chemicals

Why Get Your Mattress Deep Cleaned

A clean mattress is crucial for getting healthy, restful sleep. Here’s why you should get your mattress deep cleaned regularly:

Remove Allergens and Irritants

Dust mites, mold, and other allergens can build up in your mattress over time. Deep cleaning helps remove these allergens so you can breathe easier while you sleep. This helps me avoid congestion, runny noses, watery eyes, and other allergy symptoms.

Eliminate Odors

Sweat, body oils, and spills can cause unpleasant odors in your mattress. Deep cleaning sanitizes your mattress and leaves it fresh and odor-free. This gives me a more pleasant sleep environment.

Prolong Mattress Life

Regular deep cleaning can help extend the life of your mattress by keeping it free of pollutants. This saves me money by delaying the need to purchase a new mattress.

Improve Overall Health

Removing allergens, odors, and other pollutants from your mattress can improve your overall health. I wake up feeling refreshed and energized after sleeping on a deeply cleaned mattress.

How to Deep Clean Your Mattress Naturally

You can deep clean your mattress effectively without using harsh chemicals. Here are some simple methods:

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a mild abrasive that helps lift dirt and absorb odors. To use it:

  1. Vacuum the mattress to remove loose dirt and debris. This prepares the surface for cleaning.
  2. Sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda over the entire mattress. I use about 1/4 cup per square foot.
  3. Let the baking soda sit for 2-3 hours to allow time to absorb odors.
  4. Vacuum thoroughly to remove the baking soda along with absorbed dirt and odors.
  5. Allow the mattress to air out for a few hours after vacuuming before putting sheets back on.


The acidity of vinegar kills bacteria and helps remove stains. Follow these steps:

  1. Dilute distilled white vinegar with an equal amount of water in a spray bottle. This prevents damage to the mattress.
  2. Lightly mist the vinegar solution over the entire surface of the mattress. Avoid over-saturating.
  3. Allow the solution to sit for 15-20 minutes before blotting with a clean towel.
  4. Rinse the surface by spraying lightly with clean water and blotting again.
  5. Air out the mattress until completely dry before making the bed.


Steam cleaning uses high heat to kill bacteria and mites. To steam clean:

  1. Vacuum the mattress first to remove loose debris.
  2. Fill a handheld steamer with distilled water according to manufacturer’s directions.
  3. Working in sections, hold the steamer 2-3 inches above the mattress surface and steam for 15-20 seconds per section.
  4. Use a dry towel to blot up any excess moisture after steaming each section.
  5. Allow the mattress to air out completely before using again.

Mattress Cleaning Tips

  • Vacuum your mattress regularly to prevent buildup of allergens.
  • Spot clean spills immediately with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
  • Rotate and flip your mattress every 3-6 months to evenly distribute wear.
  • Protect your mattress with a washable cover to keep out dirt and spills.
  • Deep clean your mattress every 6-12 months for optimal health.
  • Always allow plenty of time for your mattress to completely air out after deep cleaning before remaking the bed.

Thoroughly deep cleaning your mattress without harsh chemicals is simple and effective. Following these natural methods helps me sleep healthier and wake up refreshed on a clean, fresh mattress. Maintaining a strict deep cleaning routine extends the life of my mattress and saves me money over time.
