Best Mattress Cleaning Tips: Deep Cleaning & Removing Odours

Date Written: 27 Oct 2021


Ensuring your mattress is kept clean should be of utmost importance to you, considering how we spend a third of our time laying on it – during which dust, sweat, dead skin cells and oils make their way onto and into it. All of these contaminants will start to emit a bad odour and even cause yellow stains to appear on your mattress if not cleaned properly. 


While you can always hire a mattress cleaning service in Singapore to help you get the job done, there are other times where you might want to just do it yourself so that you can clean the mattress as frequently as you would like. 


Here are some of the best mattress cleaning tips including how to deep clean and remove odours and stains. 


Deep cleaning your mattress

Deep cleaning of your mattress should be done every six months minimally to strip it of all the gunk embedded deep down. However, homeowners typically do not own any of the swanky equipment professional mattress cleaning companies have so making use of what you already have at home is another option. 


  • Start off by removing all bedding including the mattress protector. 
  • Vacuum the sides and top of the mattress using a sanitised attachment. 
  • Sprinkle a layer of baking soda on the top of the mattress – this step helps to remove moisture and break up dirt and grime. 
  • Let the baking soda sit for a few hours and let sunlight shine onto your mattress if possible.
  • Vacuum up all the baking soda and air the room. 
  • Place clean bedding on. 


Removing odours from your mattress

Baking soda works well in deodorising your mattress so you can follow the steps above to remove odour. But if you would prefer using something else, here are some other alternatives: 


  • Water with vinegar: neutralises odour and is a natural solution that will not irritate sensitive skin.
  • Mix one part of water with one part of vinegar to form a solution. 
  • Spritz the solution onto your mattress and let it air dry completely.
  • Switch on the fan and open the windows to speed up the process.


  • Essential oils: help to keep the fresh scent lingering on your mattress for days.
  • Mix 15 to 20 drops of your preferred essential oil (lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint are recommended) with baking soda. 
  • Sprinkle the mixture onto the top of your mattress and leave it on for a few hours.
  • Vacuum up any remnants.


If these steps sound like a chore to you, perhaps hiring a mattress cleaning service will help to make your life easier.


Removing stains on your mattress

Causes of stains on your mattress can range from sweat to urine and mould. These stains are hard to remove, especially when they have been left there untouched for months or even years. Thankfully, there are ways to attempt to remove them, or at least lighten them. One of the easiest ways is to use dishwashing liquid soap. 


  • Dilute dishwashing liquid soap with water and mix vigorously till suds appear. 
  • Pick up the suds and rub them gently on the stain. 
  • Blot with a clean, dry cloth to absorb any excess soap and moisture. 
  • Repeat the steps if necessary. 


Alas, some of these stubborn stains tend to still leave a mark on the mattress. If all else fails, you might want to consider getting a mattress cleaning service in Singapore to do a deep cleaning which will effectively remove all dirt, odours and stains.
