Does any one know how to get stains out of a mattress? The mattress in my spare room is still new, but it was stained by a guest I had recently. I have tried everything I know, but none worked.
Thank you, Q.

Blood stains? Undiluted peroxide Oily stains? Try a good degreaser Urine stains? Wash well with enzyme pet stain remover. Another types of stains, I don't know.
Clean it the best you can and then buy an inexpensive mattress cover to prevent it from happening again.
This takes a while, and is kind of drastic, but it worked. I have a SpotBot, and I set it on a terrible blood stain on a mattress and let it run through a tough stain cycle. then put a fan over the bed until it dried (2 days).
If you don't have a spotbot, I would suggest a upholstery attachment on a carper cleaner, then thorough drying.
How can I get oil stains out of my mattress? I placed a bottle top on my bed and the lotion came from the top and left a bad oil stain. I used a degreaser and the stain is still there.
Try using Resolve. It removes oodles of types of stains.

How do I get not only a stain out, but I need to make the stain ring also go away on a pillow top mattress. Please help, because this mattress is brand new.
I have a fairly expensive mattress that is about 18 months old. In spite of using a mattress pad, I've discovered a soiled area on it and don't know the best way of spot cleaning a mattress. Any ideas?
