How to Clean Your Mattress Properly (And Why You Really Need To More Often)

The average person spends 26 years (or one-third) of their life sleeping and another seven years trying to fall asleep. Factor in all the Netflix, reading or just hanging out, and it’s safe to say that you spend more time in bed than in any other area of your house. Surprisingly, this is the area most people aren’t cleaning nearly enough. 

It’s also important to remember that mattresses are a pricey necessity. Taking care of it is essential to ensure it lasts for the expected seven to ten years.

This guide will explain exactly how to clean your mattress properly and how often you should do it. Plus, we’ll debunk the common mattress-cleaning myths that could actually be making you sick.
