How To Clean Sweat Stains From A Pillow Top Mattress

⇒ The first step in cleaning the stains from the pillowtop mattress is to remove all the bedsheet cover and mattress. Also, remove the mattress pad that is wrapped on the pillow top.

⇒ Take a spray bottle and add distilled white vinegar to it. Now, spray the content over the stains sported on the pillow top mattress. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

⇒ Take a handful of baking soda and sprinkle it all over the stain and vinegar. You will notice foam when baking soda comes in contact with vinegar. After the foaming subsides, use a clean cloth to dab on the stain. Though this is a stain removal process, it will also remove the sweat smell from the mattress.

⇒ With the help of a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment, extract out all the baking soda from the mattress.

Alternate Method To Remove Stubborn Stains

⇒ Soak a clean cloth in water and gently dab it all over the stain. Use a teaspoon of Borax over the wet stain. Work the Borax by gently rubbing it in a circular motion using a cloth for a few minutes. Next, clean the area till it is dry and then vacuum it.

⇒ Apply a small amount of hydrogen peroxide on a cloth to remove the stubborn stain. Blot the stain with the cloth for a few minutes. Beware of the fact that peroxide can cause bleaching so use it carefully.

⇒ Hire a professional mattress cleaning company to deep clean your mattress. They will remove dust, dirt, allergens, mold, stains from the mattress as well as from the pillow top.
