Mattress cleaning is becoming a viral trend, with over 10 million TikTok hashtags and videos on the subject racking up nearly 100,000 views each. If you’ve never cleaned your mattress before, the task can seem overwhelming. However, you can totally transform your mattress in just five steps and only have to spend a fiver to get the job done. Express.co.uk chatted to Mattress Online to find out how.
That feeling of slipping into fresh sheets after a long day is unbeaten… but most people don’t realise that washing your bedding isn’t enough to keep your bed free of dust mites and bacteria.
Steve Adams, CEO at Mattress Online said: “A clean mattress will also help to minimise allergy symptoms caused by hay fever or asthma.
“It’s recommended to clean your mattress at least once a month. It only takes 40 minutes of work, plus an hour of waiting to deodorise your mattress and keep it smelling fresh.
“Plus, it costs less than £5 for the cleaning equipment required, so it’s a cheap fix to fight dust and allergies, giving you a better night’s sleep.”
