The monsoon is back, and this is the perfect season for a good sleep. Despite the pitter patter in the background at night, this welcome weather is supposed to soothe us into better sleep. There are many apps in fact with the sound of rain for those who have problems falling asleep. But this is one time, you can enjoy the natural sound of rains as you slide deeper into a blissful state.

However we must take extra care of our mattresses as with this weather there is always risk of dampness. From furniture to mattresses, they all run some risk of getting musty and worn out. And you don’t want that to happen to your precious investment!

Protect your mattress by:

1) Airing it once a month. Alternatively, you could sprinkle some baking soda on it and keep on for minimum 15 minutes for it to absorb any moisture. You could also vacuum clean it.

2) Make sure to change sheets more often.

3) Open the windows and air the room when the sun is out.

4) If you decide to spray on any freshener, ensure you don’t spray so much that the inside padding gets affected.

5) Use a bed mattress protector cover. They are easily removable and washable and will act as a barrier against allergens and dust mites. And they will save you the trouble of vacuuming the mattress.

6) Invest in best mattress topper or mattress pad. It is placed under the bed sheet and over the mattress cover. It will not only make your mattress more comfortable, but can easily be removed for washing. If you have young children, using a waterproof mattress pad is especially important.

7) To kill dust mites wash bedding and mattress covers regularly in hot water. To soften the sheets and remove any odours add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the hot water.

8) Flip your mattress at least once in three months – this includes both flipping and rotating it over. For more even wear and tear of your mattress this will help, and it will also extend the life of your mattress.
