Mattresses can be home to dust mites, bed bugs, and other critters. Before you start cleaning your mattress, strip the bed and launder your linens. Check the manufacturer’s labels and use the hottest settings allowed since heat will kill dust mites. While the washer and dryer are doing the cleaning, its time to give attention to the mattress.


Grab your vacuum cleaner’s upholstery attachment and go over the entire surface of the mattress, including the sides. Pay special attention to seams and break out the crevice attachment to get any hidden dirt or dust.

Spot clean your mattress with a stain remover

Never soak your mattress or apply water or cleaning solution directly to it. Memory foam, for example, isn’t supposed to even get wet at all. For that reason, it’s important to proceed with caution and operate on the principle that less is more.

That being said, you want to spot clean stains with a stain remover, and the stain remover will depend on the type of stain and the type of mattress. For biological stains, reach for an enzyme cleaner. Spray the cleaner onto a clean white cloth, and then blot the stained area with the cloth. After that, you can apply cold water to a different clean cloth and continue blotting until the stain lifts. The goal here is to use as little product and moisture as possible. This method is ideal for blood, sweat, vomit, urine and other related stains.

As an alternative to an enzyme-based cleaner, you can make your own DIY solution by mixing dish soap with water and apply just the resulting foam to the stain. You can also make a DIY solution of equal parts of cold water and hydrogen peroxide.


Although we don’t notice our bodily smells, over time sweat can build up and lead to an unmistakable aroma. A good mattress cleaning will leave your bed smelling fresh.

To do this, sprinkle your mattress well with baking soda and gently rub it in with a scrub brush, so it gets into the fabric where the stink lives. Let the baking soda sit for 10 minutes before proceeding to the next step.


The first round of vacuuming removed dust and hair, so the baking soda could get to work on the mattress surface. By rubbing the baking soda into your mattress, you’ve helped it bond with moisture and body oils in the top layers of material.

Vacuuming the mattress a second time pulls that moisture out, along with the cause of the odors. Use the upholstery attachment for this step of mattress cleaning, too.


If your mattress has a pillow-top or can’t be flipped over, you can skip this step. Other mattresses should be flipped side to side and top to bottom, so they wear evenly.
