How to Remove Sweat Stains From a Memory Foam Mattress
If the stain is relatively fresh, you want to get rid of as much moisture as possible. Just grab a clean rag or paper towel to absorb it. Make sure to blot instead of rub. Otherwise, you could end up pushing the stain deeper into your mattress.
Spray the Stain
Next, mix together equal parts hydrogen peroxide, liquid dish soap, and water into a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on to the stain and let it soak for roughly 20 minutes.
Blot It Out
Time for more blotting! After letting the mixture soak into your mattress, blot the stain with a clean rag or paper towel to again absorb as much moisture as possible.
Cover the Stain in Baking Soda
When it comes to mattress stains, it’s better to be safe than sorry. That’s where baking soda comes in. Completely cover the sweat stain with a layer of baking soda and let it sit for 10-24 hours.
Vacuum It Up
