How to clean a mattress

On daily basis humans shed skin cells. Along with these skin cells we also shed millions of bacteria. These bacteria can easily infiltrate your sheets and mattress cover making it vital that you have a regular mattress cleaning routine/schedule. Many mattresses come with tags that indicate what types of cleaning products are best suited for that particular mattress. If your mattress indicates that it is ok, try using natural, organic cleansers. Here are a few basic cleaning tips that should help keep your mattress in great condition:

When it comes time to flip your mattress (every 6-8 weeks) take some time to vacuum both sides

Accidents happen. Children/pets may leave an unwanted stain on your mattress. They can be removed by first blotting excess wetness from the area, followed by lightly spraying the region with an enzymatic cleanser, then blotting the area once more. I recommend following this up with some baking soda - sprinkle some on the affected area to help eliminate persistent odors and to absorb residual moisture

Wash your sheets, blankets and pillows regularly

Use a dust mite cover to protect your mattress

why do bacterias attack humans?

Parasitic bacteria invade humans because they cannot survive otherwise. The human body is their natural environment and their metabolic functions can be carried out only by disrupting ours. So they attack and invade humans.
