1. Start by vacuuming your mattress with the extension nozzle. This helps to eliminate any hair, dust mites, skin mites and animal dander from the mattress.

2. Next, spray the mattress (lightly) with the water bottle. Next, use bar soap and gently rub the area where the stain is.If necessary, you can use a toothbrush to do this step just be careful to avoid pulling string.

3. After you are done scrubbing the area with soap and the toothbrush, gently place the towels over the area and apply pressure. I have seen people on tv jump and down on the mattress but any pressure will do. After have pulled out most of the moisture, turn on a fan or well ventilate the area to allow the mattress to dry. Steaming cleaning will also remove mattress stains. If soap and water didn’t work, try renting a powerful steam cleaner with a handheld attachment. Whatever you do, don’t use harsh chemicals and make sure you do your best to dry the area you’ve cleaned. An absorbent powder like baking soda probably wouldn’t hurt. I have found that using laundry detergent in a carpet cleaner works really good as well.

4. However, be aware that if the laundry detergent is highly concentrated, you will need to avoid using a lot in the machine to avoid excessive bubbles on the mattress. Using the handheld part, gently spray the mattress and scrub with handheld scrubber. Once that this part is complete, you can you the suction part to suck up any excessive water and then proceed to use a towel to soak up any excessive water in the mattress.
