Before you embark on cleaning your mattress protector, you will need to first of all check if there are any open seams.

In case there is an open seam, try to repair it or have it repaired by a tailor before you do the washing.


2.Use Gentle detergent Pretreat Stains

Before you place the mattress protector in the washing machine, place the detergent you are using on the stains that are on the protector. Let it soak into the stains for some time; 10 to 15 minutes will do. Doing so will make it easy for the stains to come out when you place them in the washing machine.Never use bleach. Gentle detergent will work in both cleaning pretreat stains and washing part.
