How to Clean a Memory Foam Pillow
Cleaning a memory foam pillow is simple, but not easy. If you have ever removed a memory foam pillow to find a film of urine on it, you’ll understand what I mean.
I have tried to clean myself and also tried my own test and the residue was not just urine. After two days of trying to clean my memory foam pillow by wiping it down with a dustpan, I finally took it to the local drug store and had it professionally cleaned.
In order to clean the film of urine off of the memory foam pillow, you will need some type of cleaner to scrub it off. Depending on how serious the film of urine is, you may need to use a wet vacuum cleaner in order to get all of the residue from the foam to come off.
This is something that can be very difficult to do if you don’t know what the right chemicals are and how to use them. You can’t just buy a tube of special cleaning detergent that says it is designed to be used on memory foam.
It is hard to understand how to clean a memory foam pillow without some instruction on what ingredients you should use and which products will work best. It’s really hard to try to apply the wrong products and then remove a film of urine from a memory foam pillow.
If you do try to use the wrong products, you could end up destroying the foam. And with every dollar you waste on product testing, you could end up saving money by purchasing memory foam pillows that are made out of recycled materials.
The first step in how to clean a memory foam pillow is making sure the cleaning solution that you will be using is completely dry before you start the job. You don’t want to get it wet or spill the cleaning solution on the bedding and then clean up the mess afterwards.
Remember, it is a fragile material that is sensitive to dust and moisture. A damp cleaner will cause a lot of damage to the foam and the odor will be very annoying for you and your family.
So keep the dust out of the room where you are going to be cleaning. Make sure you put the dustpan in place at a spot that will be out of the way but still close enough to reach the memory foam pillow.
You may want to consider using a good double sided cleaning rag to make sure that the material is properly cleaned off the mattress and down the sides of the bed. The left over dirt and dust that go into the mattress will remain on the cleaning rag and you will not be able to clean the mattress properly.
You can also use dust pans in the bedroom in order to ensure that all of the dust that is stuck on the bedding is taken off before you begin cleaning. That way, you don’t have to spend time cleaning up the mess that has already been created by the previous cleaning attempt.
That is how to clean a memory foam pillow. It’s easier than you think, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the results of cleaning your pillow for a long time to come.
