How to Keep Your Bed Germ Free
11 Sep 2020 2 Min Read by Lucid

The average mattress owner uses the same mattress for at least 10 years. If the mattress isn’t properly protected, that can mean a decade of spills, debris, and germs silently accumulating beneath you. Here are a few simple tips to help keep your sleep space clean and fresh for years to come.  


Mattress Protectors 

The simplest way to ensure your mattress maintains a clean and germ-free existence is with the addition of a mattress protector or encasement. Mattress protectors and encasements help shield your mattress from spills, dust mites, and bed bugs by creating a waterproof yet breathable layer between your top sheet and the mattress.  


Pillow Protectors 

Just like mattress protectors, pillow protectors help maintain a clean and germ-free sleeping environment. Pillow protectors help shield your pillow from spills, dust mites, and bed bugs by creating a waterproof yet breathable layer between your pillow and your pillowcase. 


Regularly Wash Your Bedding 

Maintaining a regular wash schedule will help you ensure you are keeping your sleeping environment as clean as possible. Don’t wait for disaster to strike in the form of a spill or accident. Be proactive about keeping your bedding fresh and clean. We promise it will also help you enjoy bedtime more as well.  


Personal Hygiene 

One thing to consider when trying to keep your bedroom as clean as possible is your hygiene. It's important to remove any clothing you wore to work or out to the store and change into something specifically for your bed. Also, make sure to shower and wash your hands regularly to clear away any lingering germs that might be hanging around.
