We enjoy sipping a cup of warm java while in bed. One minute you are sipping it and the next thing you know, your mattress is wearing it! What to do?
The first thing you need to do is to wipe the excess coffee out of your mattress. It should not completely seep in, otherwise you will have hard time getting rid of it. Now, prepare baking soda, water, vinegar, a sponge and an empty spray bottle.
Step 1: Spray the affected area with room temperature water to get rid of the surface stains and to prevent further damage done to the mattress. Hot coffee spilled on your memory foam mattress can damage the foam so immediately stop the heat by spraying cold water or room temperature water.
Step 2: Now mix one cup of white vinegar and four cups of water and put it in the spray bottle you have prepare earlier. If you don’t have a spray bottle ready, just put the solution in a basin and use the sponge to apply it on the area affected. Give it a bit of scrub to help the solution penetrate better. Leave it there to dry for a few minutes, about 30 minutes or so.
Step 3: After 30 minutes, the vinegar should have already gotten rid of most of the stains. If there are still some stains evident, baking soda will do the trick. In t he mean time, spray the area affected again with clean water to get rid of the solution. Wipe the surface clean with the sponge.
Step 4: Now you can apply the baking soda. Just sprinkle it on top of the stained area. It is best to sprinkle it while the affected area is still relatively damp. It should absorb the baking soda quickly. Leave it there to dry for another 30 minutes.
Step 5: If you have a handy vacuum cleaner at home, vacuum the affected area away. This will get rid of the stains along with the baking soda residues. If you don’t have this cleaning tool at home, your hair dryer should work just as well. Set it up in its lowest heat and direct it to the area affected.
Avoid using cleaning tools such as hydrogen peroxide or bleach in your memory foam. These cleaning materials can actually damage and discolor the mattress. For a quick fix, try the steps mentioned above so you can prolong the life of your memory foam.
