Cleaning bedding is important to remember Posted on February 5, 2020 under Blog, Cleaning Tips. | no comments.
Cleaning bedding is an often-forgotten task. While we regularly clean our kitchens and bathrooms, there are a few household items that can get missed — even items we use every day.
Items such as your bedspread, pillow and mattress are probably more difficult to clean and aren’t something you do on a regular basis. These items are often at the bottom of your “to-do” list.
However, it is important that you make sure your bed is a clean, healthy space to get valuable rest. Getting a good night’s sleep is key to your health, concentration and productivity.
Cleaning bedding should become part of your routine. Think about doing your bedspread, mattress and pillows at the same time you wash your sheets. If not every time, do it as often as possible.
Here are some tips to help make the chore a little easier.
Tips for cleaning bedding
Bedspread: Check the directions on the tags to see if your bedspread or comforter can be machine washed. Check for any stains. You can always take it to the dry cleaner to be professionally cleaned. Most washing machines at home aren’t big enough to accommodate a heavy bedspread or comforter. If it’s made of wool or specifically says “dry clean only,” you should dry clean it every time.
Pillows: While most people wash pillowcases with their sheets, many don’t clean their pillows, even if they can. Check your tag for proper cleaning instructions. You may be able to machine wash or hand wash your pillows. Spot clean your decorative pillows with mild stain remover or hand wash them in cold water.
Mattress: At the same time you clean your bedding, you can clean your mattress. If you have a mattress pad, don’t forget to wash it. Again, check the tag for proper care. Even if you have a cover you can wash, you should still clean the mattress. Start off by vacuuming it to remove any dust, dirt and other allergens. Next go through with an upholstery cleaner and a cloth and spot clean any stains.
Bedding can be expensive, so you want to take proper care of it. You can always bring these and other household items to Champion Cleaners in Naples for a professional cleaning.
