Are breathable mattresses a safer alternative during the rainy season?

Most mattresses are designed to be breathable, it also makes sense that they can be quite absorbent. They can take in perspiration, oil, and air moisture that can really create foul odours, develop moulds, attract dust mites, and even trigger adverse reactions to sleepers, especially in kids, people who stay up late and senior citizens.

Commonly, people air out their mattress by taking it out of the bedroom and laying it out under the sun. The heat and the open air allow it to dry, freshening it up after absorbing moisture, sweat, body oil, and other fluids that may have seeped under the sheets. But, if you are living in an apartment, it is not easy to take out your king or queen-size mattress and expose it to the Sun.

How to clean your mattress before the rainy season?

What you can do instead is to remove the sheets and leave them bare for the day before you get out of the house in the morning. The best times are when you’re already scheduled to change sheets as it can really boost the freshness of your mattress, this will let your mattress breathe for the day, giving it time to dry out.

If you want to freshen up your mattress on a weekend, you can also strip the sheets off and sprinkle some baking soda on top of the mattress. Let it sit for 30 minutes before vacuuming, so the baking soda gets the chance to soak all the moisture and odour the mattress may have.

If you happen to wake up on a nice sunny morning and want to take advantage of the sun’s appearance without having to wrestle with your mattress, you can let the sunshine in instead of taking your mattress outside. This will save you the hassle of dragging your mattress out and having to take it inside right away the moment the skies turn grey. It is also the perfect solution if your bed is placed near the window or if your bedroom gets sunshine.
