Mattresses are probably the most difficult thing to clean in any home. They are big, cumbersome, and surrounded by furniture we really don’t want to move. They are also very neglected when it comes to cleaning.

However, we spend about a third of the day lying on a mattress and, because of this, it needs cleaning. You know I’m right.

Many people sweat while they sleep. It is completely natural, but it can leave the mattress a little smelly over time. There are also dust and dust mites to contend with. Dust mites are believed to cause allergic reactions and asthma in 10 percent of the population, and 4 out of 5 homes have detectable amounts of dust mite allergens in at least one bed.
