Steps to Clean a Futon Mattress

1. Remove the mattress cover from the  futon mattress

The first step in the vast majority of futon cleaning is to remove the mattress cover. A typical futon mattress comes with a dust jacket of the same color. When cleaning is required, simply open the zipper, remove the mattress cover from the futon mattress, and clean. The operation is simple and convenient, and does not affect the use of the futon mattress.

2. Vacuum the mattress through the upholstery attachment

To remove any debris that may be stuck between the padding, use the upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner. It is recommended that you use the smallest setting, so you do not disturb the padding and cause wrinkles in the futon cover.

3. Spot clean the stains with a mild detergent

Use a mild detergent such as baby shampoo to remove spots and stains. Be careful not to use too much, or you might ruin your futon mattress.

While a few spritzes should be enough, this way, you are sure that the stain is out. If you need more, go ahead and do them, but ensure you wash your futon mattress thoroughly afterward, so the spot does not set in.

4. Rinse the area with a damp cloth

After using detergents to clean your futon mattress, you must rinse it thoroughly. This can be done by soaking a damp cloth in a water bowl and dipping it into the mattress to soak up all the dirty liquid.

5. Air dry completely before using it again

Don't put it in your room until it has completely dried out. If it is a down-filled futon mattress, do not place it directly on top of the box spring, as this can affect its loft and make it feel more uncomfortable. This is because the loft will get deflated, and the mattress will be less comfortable.

Also, a futon mattress should be cleaned on a hard surface such as a table or countertop. This helps to keep the foam from shrinking back after the cleaning.

To ensure that your futon mattress has dried out completely, let it sit overnight in your room with no extra covers, pillows, or anything on it. Then in the morning, check that there are no wet spots on the bottom of the mattress. If there is, try putting a fan in your room for a while to dry it up a bit.
