For the ultimate mattress enhancer, this 5 Star Hotel Pillowtop Mattress Pad will soften even the hardest mattress or just simply make any mattress a sleep sanctuary. It has the luxurious look and feel of a pillow top with out the cost. More over, you can wash this pillow top if needed, as you can not wash a pillow top mattress.
This baking soda and essential oil clean works really well if you want to freshen up your entire pillow top mattress pad and get rid of those pesky mites. First, take of all the sheets and covers that you can and wash them separately in hot water. Next, vacuum the mattress thoroughly making sure you get into all the nicks and crevices, especially around the edge of the mattress. Now, mix a cup of baking soda with five or six drops of your favorite essential oil. I generally use lavender as it has that kind of bedroom smell, but the choice is yours. After that, using a sieve, sprinkle the baking soda all over the mattress and leave it for a couple of hours. When you return, vacuum the mattress thoroughly once again until all the baking soda has been removed. The result should be a clean, fresh smelling mattress free of dust mites and dead skin.
The first thing to emphasize is that if you want to keep your pillow top mattress pad clean, then you should be using a mattress cover. These thin sheets, often elasticized around the edge to form fit the mattress, are cheap and provide a reasonable amount of protection to the mattress itself. Every week, or more if you choose, simply remove the mattress cover, wash it in hot water in the washing machine, dry it and replace on the bed. Thus, cleaning the mattress pad itself becomes much, much simpler, except when dealing with spillages and their resultant stains.
When you are sleeping, there is nothing more important for your health than the quality of the surface you are sleeping on. Your back has to be well supported to relieve it of the strain it has undergone throughout the day, and you have to be very comfortable to avoid tossing and turning the whole night. This is why spending a little time and money to find the right kind of bedding is a good idea. However, good mattresses can be expensive and because it is not a good idea to compromise on the quality of your sleep, you might want to skip the idea of replacing your mattress, and get yourself a pillow top mattress pad instead.
