How to remove sweat stains from your mattress

Do you notice yellow stains on your mattress when you change your bedding? No matter! After vacuuming all the corners and edges of your mattress, follow these tips to remove these unsightly stains quickly and effectively.

  • Hydrogen peroxide to get rid of sweat stains

To harness the power of hydrogen peroxide, all you need to do is add 3 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and another 4 tablespoons of water to a spray bottle before stirring. Then, spray the solution on the yellowed sweat stains and leave it on for an hour. Repeat the process as needed while scrubbing problem areas with a microfiber cloth or sponge. Also, be sure to handle with care.

  • White vinegar to get rid of sweat stains

As for ecological and natural cleaning solutions, we rarely dare to do without white vinegar, which shines with its ability to disinfect and degrease all kinds of surfaces, including mattresses. And for good reason, it can perfectly whiten them.

To use this very effective product, as with the first solution, get a spray bottle and fill it with half a glass of water and another half a glass of white vinegar.  Spray the solution directly on the stains and let the magic work for about 1 hour before rubbing and rinsing it off with a microfiber cloth.

  • Sodium bicarbonate to remove sweat stains

Baking soda, along with white wine vinegar, is one of those organic ingredients you should always have around, as it’s a lifesaver in more ways than one. Baking soda, so to speak, has a significant stain removing and deodorizing power. To take advantage of it, pour 4 tablespoons in a glass of water, mix and then apply the obtained substance on the yellow stains. Be sure to rub gently with a microfiber cloth and then leave the product on for 1 to 2 hours. Finally, vacuum your mattress to remove any remaining baking soda.

  • Hydrogen peroxide to get rid of sweat stains

If you want to improve the hydrogen peroxide cleaning formula, there is another simple formula that will help you get rid of yellow stains that sometimes smell musty. To get rid of it, make a mixture of a jar of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 3 tablespoons of baking soda and a few drops of dishwashing liquid in a container. Mix the solution well so that the baking soda can dissolve then pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the latter directly on the soiled areas of the mattress and leave it for a few minutes. Let the mattress air dry for 1 hour and you’re done! If you want to speed up the drying process, you can always use a hair dryer. Also remember that under no circumstances should bleach be used.

Although these cleaning methods remain effective, remember that regular care of your mattress is necessary to prolong its life and protect your health.
