Clean mattress spots and stains easily
Method 1: Take a wet cloth and then use a pressing motion rather than a circular motion to remove the stain. Use only cold water when cleaning stains on your mattress. Create a paste with equal parts of salt, baking soda and water and rub it on the area and brush it off 30 minutes later. Then, use some cold water on a cloth to remove the excess and then allow the mattress to dry.
Method 2: Create a mixture of two parts hydrogen peroxide and one part dish soap. Put a small dab of this onto the stain, use a cleaning toothbrush to gently rub it in, leave it for five minutes, then wipe it up with a cold, camp cloth.
Steam cleaning or deep cleaning
Steam cleaning is just covering the mattress with steam to kill dust mites. On the other hand, deep cleaning is extracting the moisture. These methods are more efficient if done by trained professional and great extraction equipment.
