It doesn’t matter if you have Sweat, Sperm(Semen), or even Blood on your mattress you can quickly and easily remove it. We’re going to show you how easy it is to get stains out of your mattress, and don’t panic as it’s normal to get stains over time.
It’s quite embarrassing, and you’re probably need to get rid of the bodily stains quickly, we have some Smart Tips and a Cleaning Solution that can really help you.
The biggest tip we can give you is next time use a Mattress Protector like this one (Amazon Link Ad) so that you won’t have any stains on your mattress. Mattress Protectors these days feel and sound like a regular bed sheet, and it can keep sperm, blood, sweat, and other body fluids from staining your mattress.
Not a fan of saying those words so from here on out we’ll call them body fluids.
I’m not going to lie, you can make some headway with some homemade cleaners, but you need an enzyme cleaner (Amazon Link Ad) to clean the stains out fully.
Body Fluids are organic, and an enzyme cleaner will eat away at the stain, even if they’re old and set in. This is the only full proof way to get rid of the stain that I know of.
If you don’t have any or waiting to get your enzyme cleaner here is how you can remove some of the stains quickly…
Remove Body Fluid Stains from Mattress Quickly
Here’s how to make our mattress stain remover formula.
- Get a bowl with a little bit of water in it.
- Add some Hydrogen Peroxide to the bowl.
- Add some Dish Detergent to the bowl.
- Add some Baking Soda to the bowl.
- Mix all ingredients in the bowl for a few seconds.
The hydrogen peroxide is what is going to help fight against the organic body fluids. The Dish Detergent is a degreaser and will help with anything that has oils (sweat and blood) and to also clean the area. The Baking soda is the rough material that contributes to loosening the stain up. The reason why you add a little water at first is to activate the dish detergent; it’s useless until the water gets added to it.
The reason why we put everything in a bowl and not a sprayer is that we only want to get our towel wet and don’t want to spray the mattress directly. Spraying the mattress directly can cause the mattress to be oversaturated and makes it hard to dry. A soaking wet mattress also can lead to mold. So it’s better only to wet a towel and then clean the area with the towel instead.
To clean the mattress of its bodily stains dampen one part of the towel a little bit with the cleaning solution we made above and scrub the area.
To clean with the enzyme cleaner you can follow the directions on the bottle, but I usually spray the area and let it sit for a few minutes. After a while, I will clean the area with a damp rag. I typically find the enzyme cleaners work too well and leave a clean spot on the mattress which makes you want to clean the whole area. If you do clean the entire area, avoid over spraying the bedding and give it enough time to dry out.
To dry the mattress place a fan near it or if you can put the mattress outside for the whole day in the Sun. The Sun can do magic for fabrics and odors.
Please don’t forget to buy a Mattress Protector, so you don’t have to go through this again. Mattress Protectors are affordable, and I would instead throw the protector away then to ever clean a mattress.
Not sure about mattress protectors? Here are 15 reasons why you need one.
If you’re getting a mattress from someone and you suspect it has stains on it, then I would recommend going a step further and get a Mattress Encasement so that the whole mattress is covered. This is also important if you suspect they have bed bugs. Seeing blood stains on a mattress could be a sign of bed bugs and an encasement can help with that.
Also, don’t be embarrassed by this, stains happen, and people are only human. But a Mattress Protector can keep the embarrassment down.
