1. Remove any stains
It’s always best to remove stains before they become permanent. Most Memory foam toppers have removable covers, so if you notice any stains, just take them off. If the stain really won’t budge, try using some rubbing alcohol or a diluted bleach solution.
2. Use a damp cloth
Dampen a rag with water and then gently wipe down the surface. Never use a dry cloth though; moisture helps prevent mold.
3. Clean the bed frame
If you’re worried about cleaning the entire bed frame, you can purchase a thick memory foam mattress topper specifically designed for cleaning. These covers are often machine washable, so you don’t need to worry about ruining the fabric.
4. Use a deodorizer
Mattresses tend to get smelly over time, especially if you sleep in the same spot each night. Deodorizing spray should help keep the smell at bay.
5. Dry out the mattress
If you notice your mattress getting wetter than usual, open up the box spring and let air circulate around the bottom of the mattress. You shouldn’t need to do this often, but if you find yourself sleeping in wet conditions, you may want to consider purchasing a waterproof mattress pad.
