You must make sure to keep it clean and tidy to avoid diseases and infections. Sometimes our mattress gets stains due to some mistakes have done unknowingly. Hence, stains can be due to spillage of drinks or pee of kids or pets or any semisolid dropping.

  6. Vacuum Cleaner,
  7. Fragranced Oil of your choice,
  8. Water, and
