Mattress toppers are a great way to extend the life of your mattress, but it’s important to know how to store a mattress topper properly if you don’t want to risk having your sleep disturbed by flat spots and permanent creases. Here are the dos and don’ts of storing a mattress topper.
What is a mattress topper?
A mattress topper is an excellent way to extend the life of your current mattress. However, it needs to be stored properly or it can lose its shape. Here are some helpful tips for storing your mattress topper 1) When you’re done using your mattress topper, remove it from the bed. 2) Clean any spills on the material with a damp cloth immediately so they don’t dry and become difficult to remove. 3) Place your mattress pad in a dryer on low heat setting for 15 minutes before storing.
Things you should know about storing your mattress
Maintaining your mattress topper is essential for keeping it clean and dry. These are the do’s and don’ts of storing a mattress topper:
1. Find a cool, dry place for it to rest.
2. Keep it away from sunlight or other sources of heat.
3. Avoid letting pets or children play with it as they could damage the material or pull out the stuffing, which can cause mold growth if left unchecked.
To store your mattress topper, place it in an airtight container or plastic bag to prevent dust from accumulating on it. Then place the container or bag in the coolest part of your home, which is typically the basement or garage. If you want to keep your topper out for quick access, use an airtight container with a lid that seals tightly. For example, you can use a plastic bin with a lid that closes securely. Put the bin at one end of your bed so that when you need to retrieve the topper, all you have to do is walk over there rather than making the bed again. When not in use, make sure this side of the bed has sheets and blankets on it so no one trips over them by mistake. You should also label what’s inside this container with its contents so there’s no confusion about what’s inside when you put it away later.
