How to deep clean your mattress at home

by | Jul 26, 2022 | Eco-Friendly Living, Things we love | 0 comments

*This post was written in partnership with Wellness Warehouse & SANIC Dry Sanitiser.

Our master bedroom recently underwent a little update. Part of the revamp included a thorough cleaning of everything but most importantly the mattress. I know it’s a little gross but we don’t regularly clean our mattresses… Not because we don’t want to, but rather because I didn’t know a thing about how to deep clean your mattress at home. In the past mattress cleaning included renting fancy machines or simply paying the professionals for a good steam-clean. Both worked well but the inconvenience of waiting for the mattress to dry before being able to use it again played a huge factor in this not happening often. Then Wellness Warehouse introduced us to SANIC Dry Sanitiser.

What is Sanic Dry Sanitiser?

SANIC is a hypoallergenic sanitising powder used to keep our homes hygienic, clean and smelling fresh. It fights bacteria, fungus and mould, and removes odours, (even caused by pets), while protecting against bed bugs and dust mites. It also absorbs moisture and combats dampness making it perfect for those living in locations with high humidity.

It’s “PEOPLE FRIENDLY” meaning it’s non-toxic for the entire family – adults, children, toddlers and even baby mattresses, soft toys and more can be cleaned with SANIC. Just always be sure to use as instructed. SANIC is also suitable for vegans and vegetarians and I almost instantly felt a relief in my dust allergies after the 1st use.

SANIC is “ANIMAL FRIENDLY” too and works wonders when it comes to cleaning pet beds. Completely non-toxic to pets and no animal testing is done when creating this amazing product.

Lastly, it’s also “ECO FRIENDLY” making use of paper packaging approved by the FSC and almost no plastic. SANIC doesn’t require any water for use, making it a water-wise option. And did I mention it’s LOCAL! Proudly made in South Africa.

3 easy steps to deep clean your mattress at home:

Convenience and efficacy are the main reasons we love using SANIC (plus the lovely fresh scent of course). It couldn’t be easier…

STEP 1 – Sprinkle down the SANIC powder over the desired area.

During light, regular cleaning one tub of SANIC can clean up to 4 king-size bed mattresses when used on only one side of the mattress. For deep cleaning use more. Be sure a layer of light powder is covering the entire surface.

STEP 2 – Wait 20 minutes.

For a deeper clean leave the powder on for 2 hours (or longer) while running other errands.

STEP 3 – Vacuum!

See all the moisture, dirt, dust mites, mould and more lift and get sucked up with the powder. You’ll be left with a lingering fresh scent which dissipates within a few hours. So no perfume smells keeping you awake at night.

pointers for keeping your mattress clean:

  • We spend a lot of time in our beds and keeping our “sleep space” clean will lead to better sleep and overall better health. That’s why regular matress-cleaning is important.
  • Our matrasses, couches and upholstery all act as “filters” through which the air we breathe moves. Regular cleaning of these will improve the air quality in our homes.
  • SANIC recommends cleaning your mattress once a month. For extreme allergy sufferers or those struggling with skin conditions – once a week could be beneficial.

Other uses for Sanic Dry Sanitiser:

SANIC is a multi-use product! Use it on mattresses, couches, pet beds, carpets, cushions, poufs, soft toys, furniture and car upholstery, car seats, handbags, sports bags, sneakers or trainers and more. It absorbs any unwanted odours while cleaning and sanitising.

*Use SANIC to remove odours and speed up drying time after cleaning kid’s mattresses (with soap and water) from accidents.
