How to Remove Water Stains on a Mattress

interior #9 image by turkinson from

Spills and water leaks are among the many occurrences that cause water stains on a mattress. Minerals from water combined with any dirt on the mattress will leave unattractive stains that are unlikely to fade. A common substance, found in most grocery stores or even right in your cupboard, will help remove these stains, as well as other stains that may be on your mattress.

Put on rubber gloves. Pour white vinegar on a clean kitchen sponge.

Apply the soaked sponge to the stained area. Scrub the area with an upholstery brush, to get the vinegar fully into the stain. The vinegar odour will be strong but will fade over the course of a few hours.

Allow the vinegar to sit on the stains for 5 minutes. Blot the area with a towel, then let it air-dry.

Reapply the vinegar if there are any water stains remaining. Dry it well afterward with a clean towel. Turn on a fan in the room and direct it at the mattress to speed the drying.
