Maintaining Your Mattress

Anyone who has purchased a mattress lately knows how much they cost. You can save money by getting more life out of the mattress you have. Here are some mattress tips.


Musty Mattress

To help refresh a musty mattress sprinkle baking soda on it. Let it sit for a day and then vacuum up the baking soda.

Protect It

Put a protective cover over your mattresses. If you have kids that are prone to accidents, a vinyl cover works the best.

Flip It

Get into the habit of flipping and rotating your mattress once a month. This will prevent one side from being worn down more than another.

Not only kids have accidents, adults as well. Plus all humans perspire up to 2 pints of liquid every night. Thus everybody needs to protect their mattress. Sleeping on vinyl makes you sweat. Vinyl is a non-breathable plastic. I would suggest a waterproof yet breathable mattress protector that can be washed hot and even sterilized at 250F.

FYI, our mattress is not to be flipped or rotated. There is a note at one
end clearly marking it as "head" and at the other as "foot." I don't
remember the brand.
