General Care for Organic Mattresses
Flip your mattress! Encourage even wear and longevity of your mattress by turning, then rotating, every twelve weeks. For safety, always have two people to turn the mattress. Do not use the mattress handles to lift the mattress, as they can detach. Use the mattress handles only to guide the mattress into place.
A Happy Planet recommends turning your mattress end-to-end, then flipping.
In addition, following these simple steps to care for your organic mattress helps to ensure that it will bring you many years of luxurious, healthful rest.
Support your mattress by always placing it on a box spring, slat foundation or platform-style bed frame. Protect the integrity of your bedding with the use of an organic mattress pad.
Allow natural fibers to breathe; vacuum and air out your mattress and box spring regularly. Leave your bed unmade once a week to air and refresh the appearance.
Spot clean your organic mattress with a 1:3 natural solution of distilled vinegar to water and exposure to direct sunlight. Be sure that the mattress is dry before using.
Eliminate unwanted odors by sprinkling with baking soda.
