Cleaning Up Your Mattress

As our city was one of those who were greatly affected by the recent flooding in the Philippines, the family is now taking a big effort of restoring everything in the house. We may not be able to restore all the furniture back into shape that soon, but we should at least start with the more important aspect of the restoration process and that's the "clean up stage". I know it's going to be a very tough job for the kids and our trusted helper at home. I wish I was already home by now to at least help in this very tough job but since I'm still here and waiting for few weeks to be finally back home, I just can give them a piece of tip to at least ease out the burden of going through the clean up process. All our beds get stuck into the flood and yes, it's a great job to keep it back to life. 


Here's a tip:

After thoroughly brushing the mattress with a mild detergent and lukewarm water to get rid of stuck dirt, the next thing would be the drying up process. When the drying up is completely achieved, the next best thing to do is to sprinkle the mattress with baking soda. Baking soda helps drew up moisture and deep seated dirt, leaving the mattress fresh and clean. You may also want to add up some dry fabric softener (in powder form), it will hep to restore back the condition of your mattress in no time.
