How To Spring Clean Your Mattress

We spend over a third of our lives in bed getting that precious beauty sleep so it is important that what we sleep (breathe into) needs to be clean. We wash our sheets weekly to remove dust mites, dead skin cells and pet hair therefore we should clean a mattress at least twice a year.
