cleaning your Anna mattress
A mattress is an important accessory for your house and an investment that you don’t make every day. So, you want to make sure that it stays with you for a long time without any wear and tear. The best way to ensure this is to keep your mattress clean and well-maintained. Many people think that cleaning your mattress at home is not an easy task. However, that’s not true! With proper instructions and the right approach, cleaning a mattress is easier than you think.
Here is a comprehensive guide by the experts at Anna Mattress to give your mattress the care it deserves.
Step #1: Strip the Bed and Wash the Coverings
The first thing to do when cleaning your mattress is to make sure that no other piece of clothing is present on it. This includes all the sheets, mattress covers, pillow covers, and so on. If your Anna mattress is covered in our mattress protector, make sure to remove it and put it in the washer according to the given instructions
Step #2: Vacuum Thoroughly
Once the mattress is free of all the clothing and covering, it’s time to remove the dust mites trapped within your mattress. The best way to do that is to vacuum the mattress thoroughly. Make sure to attach the upholstery attachment before vacuuming the mattress so that the machine does not damage it. Be extra careful about the seams and crevices so that all the hidden dust and dirt are removed.
Step #3: Spot Cleaning if Required
Once you have gotten rid of the trapped dust, it’s time to spot clean the mattress. To do this, rub a clean, damp cloth gently across the stains to remove them. Make sure not to rub hard as it can damage your mattress. This step is optional! If there are no stains on your mattress, you can skip this part of our cleaning guide.
Step #4: Put the Protector Back On
Boom! You are done! Your mattress is now clean! It’s now the time to put your Anna mattress protector back on, which is super easy to do as it comes with easy-to-snap zipper closure. Just put the protector back on and get back to your routine while enjoying a cleaner and healthier mattress that will last you a lot longer.

A Few Things to Remember
- Once you have cleaned your Anna mattress, it’s always a good idea to rotate it by 180 degrees. However, it’s important not to flip it as all our mattresses are supposed to be one way up.
- Wear and tear are natural and generally unavoidable for a mattress. Yet, proper care can increase its longevity. So, make sure to follow a regular mattress cleaning schedule.
- In order to keep your mattress for a long time, you should keep it well-ventilated. So, be wary of keeping your bed frame in a balanced position with evenly spaced slats.
- In case of emergency spills, try to remove the stain immediately so that it does not spread or stick to your mattress. To do this, use a dry and clean cloth. If it doesn’t work, sprinkle a little amount of baking soda or apply it after mixing with water. Let it rest for not more than 30 minutes, and then clean it with a clean cloth.
