The Kipli children's mattres is easy to clean, even the most unfortunate accidents can be cleaned using traditional cleaning products. In any event, the use of a mattress protector is recommended, particularly for mattresses being used by children
The cover can be easily removed and can be machine washed up to a maximum temperature of 30 degrees on a delicate cycle. If the stain is very stubborn, you can apply a stain remover prior to washing. If the stain is superficial and just on the cover, simple washing will be sufficient. If you want to change your mattress cover, get in touch with us and we'll sort out a replacement cover (at approximately 25% of the price of the mattress). If the stain has gone through the cover, you can clean the mattress body too. Natural latex isn't damaged by water, as opposed to synthetic foams, memory foams, etc. The use of overly strong agents isn't recommended and in no case should chlorine be used. Try blotting up any residual liquid with a sponge or a cloth, without rubbing the mattress core. Allow the remaining moisture in the mattress to dry naturally. You can also dry it with a hair-dryer but don't do this for too long as it can scorch the natural latex.
If you just want to refresh or lightly clean your Kipli mattress, you can use bicarbonate of soda, an excellent product that you can find in any supermarket. Uncover your mattress, blot up the liquid and sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda over the mattress body. Leave it to work for 30 minutes and then vacuum it off with a vacuum cleaner.
Cleaning a stain:
If its a light stain, you can use the same method referred to above in light cleaning ensuring that any remaining moisture has been absorbed with a sponge or a cloth and applying a thin layer of bicarbonate of soda to the stain and leaving it to work for 1 hour before vacuuming. To remove a more serious stain such as dirt, blood or urine, it is advisable to use natural methods:
Firstly, remove the cover and machine wash it at a maximum temperature of 30º
Then gently blot up the remaining liquid on the mattress with a sponge or cloth but do not rub the stain.
Apply a thick layer of baking soda on the stain to absorb the remaining moisture. Vacuum it off.
Lastly, use white vinegar or a biodegradable detergent and apply this with the aid of a cloth or a sponge, without rubbing. If there is still a stain but the mattress is dry, it shouldn't be a problem. The most important thing is to remove any moisture when cleaning.
