The procedure of washing waterproof mattress covers
You don’t just need to toss your mattress cover in a machine. There is a procedure that you need to follow to make sure that the waterproof mattress cover gets the washing it deserves.
The first step is removing the stubborn stains. If you would put the waterproof mattress cover directly into the machine then the stains are not going to go away. To make sure that the stubborn stains are lighter, make use of mild detergent and kitchen soap. Apply this mixture on hard stains so they light up.

The washing machine procedure
Some people think that is completely ok to put the mattress cover in a machine with a high temperature and strong cycle. This mistake shouldn’t be there.
Make sure when you are tossing your waterproof mattress cover in a machine then you are running a gentle cycle. The strong cycle will eventually destroy the waterproof mattress cover coating.
The next episode is about adding a detergent with a few drops of lemons. Lemon is very effective for stains and the addition of lemon in detergent will yield excellent results.
Run a gentle cycle and if it is necessary then you can go for 2 to 3 cycles. Take the mattress cover from the machine and then wash it with gentle hands in water. If the mattress cover is still not cleaned after being washed in a machine then it can be rubbed with gentle hands.
