Sweat is a natural process and it happens to everyone. When you sweat, the salt and other minerals in your sweat make stains on your mattress. If you have a mattress that has been stained by sweat, there are several things that you can try to remove the stain. The first thing that you should do is allow the mattress to air out. Eliminate moisture from your mattress as much as possible by allowing it to sit in a well-ventilated area for at least 24 hours. If you have pets, be sure that they do not sleep on the mattress while it is airing out. This will help reduce the amount of bacteria present on the surface of the mattress. Pillows and any other items that were under the mattress should also be aired out and washed frequently.
Once your mattress has had time to air out, you can use several different methods to remove sweat stains from it. Below are some ways to do mattress cleaning:
Air out the mattress:-
The first thing you want to do when trying to remove sweat stains from Mattress is to air out the mattress so that it dries out completely. Don’t use this mattress until it has completely dried out because moisture attracts mold and mildew. Place your mattress outside in the sunshine and allow it to dry for a few hours. This works best on a warm day, but if it’s too cold or damp you can use a hairdryer to speed it up (set it on low and ideally use the hairdryer from the back of the mattress so you don’t melt your vinyl).
Remove the fabric protector:-
Many people purchase a special fabric protector in order to help keep their mattresses clean and stain-free. If you have recently purchased a new mattress then chances are good that the manufacturer applied one of these protectors before they delivered the product to your home. If this is the case, then you’ll need to carefully remove this coating before proceeding with any further cleaning steps.
Spread Out Sweat Stain Remover:-
After cleaning your mattress, apply a layer of sweat stain remover directly onto the surface of the mattress where the sweat stains are located. This will help break down some of those stubborn stains and will also kill any bacteria that may be causing those odor issues as well. When it’s completely dry, remove any remaining dust by vacuuming the mattress thoroughly (use an attachment to get into all those nooks and crannies).
Freshen Up Your Mattress :-
While sweat stains cannot always be removed from a mattress, freshening up your mattress may help eliminate some of the odor and bacteria that contributed to making it dirty in the first place. The fresher your mattress is, the better it will smell and thus, eliminate or mask odors that resulted from sweat stains. You can freshen up your mattress by washing and airing it out.
Vacuuming the mattress once every week will help pick up any dirt and grime. This will prevent any stains from setting in too deeply by removing them before they have a chance to dry out.
