How To Care For Your New Mattress: Tips & Tricks

A good mattress is like a good friend – it supports you, comforts you, and is there for you through thick and thin. But just like any friendship, a little TLC goes a long way. So, let’s dive into the world of mattress care and ensure your slumber buddy is in it for the long haul!

Protect Your Sleep Sanctuary

Invest in a Mattress Protector: Think of a mattress protector as a superhero cape for your bed. It defends against spills, stains, and the dreaded dust mites. Even if you're the cleanest person on earth, years of sweat build up during our hot Aussie summers alone will be enough to warrant a protector. Plus, it’s your first line of defense in maintaining a pristine sleep environment. Conveniently, we here at Zeek also have fantastic Bamboo Mattress Protectors on offer!

Hypoallergenic Covers: For those of us who start sneezing at the mere mention of dust (such as myself, dear reader, the struggle is real), a hypoallergenic cover is a must. It’s like having an allergy bouncer at the door of your mattress club.

Keep It Clean And Cosy

Regular Vacuuming: Your mattress is a magnet for dust and small particles. Give it a spa day with a gentle vacuuming session every couple of months. Remember, it’s not just about the top and bottom – show the sides some love too!

Spot Cleaning Stains: Accidents happen, but there’s no need to cry over spilled milk (or coffee). A mild detergent and a soft cloth can work wonders on most stains. Just dab gently; it’s not a race to rub the stain away.

Deodorize Naturally: Freshen up your mattress with a sprinkle of baking soda. It’s like a breath mint for your bed! Let it sit, then vacuum it up for a fresh, clean scent.

Flip, Rotate, Repeat

Rotate Regularly: Just like you wouldn’t wear shoes on one foot only, don’t sleep on one side of the mattress forever. Rotate it head to toe every few months to distribute wear evenly.

Flip If Possible: If you have a double-sided mattress, flipping it over can extend its life and comfort. It’s like getting two mattresses for the price of one!

Know When To Say Goodbye

Check for Signs of Wear: If your mattress starts to sag like a hammock, or you’re just not getting the support you used to, it might be time to start mattress shopping. And what do you know, we just so happen to have a range of great mattresses to offer!

Listen to Your Body: If you wake up feeling like you’ve wrestled a bear, it could be a sign that your mattress isn’t giving you the love you need. Don’t ignore the aches and pains; your body knows best.

Remember, folks, a well-cared-for mattress means a happier, healthier you. So, show your mattress some love, and it’ll return the favor with sweet dreams and restful nights.
