How Do You Clean Memory Foam?

    The number one rule when it comes to any mattress type is to always use a mattress cover/protector over the top. A Mattress Cover will act as a barrier between you and your mattress, absorbing any sweat and other liquids from damaging the mattress. Many mattress guarantees become invalid when a mattress is soiled or damaged so to ensure you get the most for your money protect your mattress.

    The benefit of buying a Memory Foam Mattress from Memory Foam Warehouse is that the zipped, removable mattress covers make them very easy to keep clean, meaning you can continue to sleep in a fresh and healthy environment for years to come!

    Cleaning Spillages

    If you do spill a liquid on your Memory Foam Mattress we suggest you strip and wash the cover, and then lightly clean the foam with lukewarm soapy water. Coming in to contact with liquid can cause the foam to breakdown quicker than usual, however if you clean it immediately and ensure it is left to air out in a cool room, it should dry without any lasting problems.
