If you want to extend the life of your bed and ensure that it gives you many years of comfortable sleep, you need to learn some basic bed care tips.
Because, to put it simply, the way you treat your bed will determine how it will treat you! Read on to find out our top tips when it comes to caring for and cleaning your trusty crib:
Avoid stains on your mattress by using a mattress protector or an Australian woollen underlay. As an added bonus, use an Australian wool underlay as it will give you a more comfortable night’s sleep.
Rotate your mattress on a regular basis to ensure that it receives even wear on both ends. You should also flip your mattress over regularly so that both sides wear evenly.
If your mattress becomes stained at anytime, don’t saturate it with water. Instead, you should spot clean using a damp sponge and suitable detergent.
Give your bed a regular airing to keep it smelling fresh and to avoid dampness and mildew. A good time to do this is when you take all your bed sheets off for cleaning.
Rather than dressing your bed immediately with fresh sheets, let it air for a coupe of hours and open your bedroom windows to aerate the room if possible.
Vacuum your mattress and base using the low suction setting on your vacuum cleaner. Doing this will get rid of any dust particles and other build-ups that shouldn’t be there.
By giving your bed the tender loving care it deserves and looking after it carefully, you can make sure that your bed looks after you.
